What is Electric Fencing ?

An Electric Fence is a barrier that uses electric shocks to deter animals or people from crossing a boundary.
The voltage of the shock may have effects ranging from uncomfortable, to painful or even lethal, this is the real value of electric fencing, it puts a psychological & physical barrier to  stop crime and vandalism. Electric fencing is frequently used to enhance security of barriers, physical structures, controlled environments and sensitive areas
Electric security fencing is still one of the most effective forms of physical security, cost effective, combining a strong deterring influence with the ability to monitor a zone/fence lines intrusion activity twenty-four hours a day

  • The Electric Fencing Company installs a minim six-strand {6-wires} electric fencing as our preferred entry-level wall top security, as this offers a higher level of security, even numbered strands have all the strands monitored against cutting.

  • All fences are wired in series; any strands including HT [ High Tension Cabling] cabling that is cut through will trigger the alarm.

  • All sliding gates are connected into sliding gate contacts, these contacts offer monitoring of all strands securing the sliding gate against cutting. An inline gate contact is always used.

  • All Conductor wiring has a minimal thickness of 1.2mm, and is manufactured from 316 grade Stainless Steel, all wiring is certified in writing as C1 marine grade, and certification can be provided upon request.

  • All wiring bridging, loops and connections are rolled and connected with tinned copper or stainless steel non-electrolytic ferrules; this insures a safe, compliant and permanent connection along the conductor, loops and HT [ High Tension Cabling] connections. Ferrules offer a permanent connection that cannot be removed, therein enhancing the security level of all our installations.

  • Earthing is done using compliant SANS/SABS specified earth spikes, these spike are driven into the sub straight soil to minimum depth of 1200mm, and spaced no more than 30meter intervals along the fence line.

  • All Brackets are installed roughly no more than 3 – 3.5 meters apart, this is to ensure that the fence cannot be lifted and breached, any sections that need to be spanned more than 3.5 meters will be equipped with anti-creep alarm loops, this will negate any breach and still offer the highest standard of Security

  • All Brackets are fastened to concrete & brick walled structures with non-corroding anti-Vandal fasteners, these fasteners cannot be simply removed with standard hand tools once installed, they are high security fasteners.

  • Warning Signage is installed within compliance roughly every ten meters.

  • All new energisers come equipped with a minimum two year warranty. {T&C’s Apply}
