Electric fencing is a fencing alternative to conventional or barbed wire fences. Made of 100% American smooth steel wire, it is perfect for creating a psychological as well as physical barrier to keep out unwanted animals or people. Hutchison also has available 5 models of electric fence posts of varying diameters, 10 energizers, and 39 different parts and accessories, including, but not limited to, insulators, wire strainers, gate handles, clamps, and springs. All are as functional as they are economical.
This thin round metal post is used for temporary electric fencing such as cordoning off an area where livestock can graze for a short period of time since they cannot manage any significant strain. Available in rebar or smooth.
The purpose of an insulator is to keep the wire from touching the post or other grounded items. Electric fence insulators can be made of plastic or porcelain and come in several styles because the insulator must match both the type of fence post and the type of wire being used.
Insulators connect to wood posts, T-posts, round posts, U-Posts, chain link posts and wire. The other end of the insulator connects to wire, Polywire, Polyrope and Polytape.
Electric Fence Insulators are made of plastic or porcelain, each having its own advantages:
Plastic Insulators are nailed to the post and are molded from polyethylene often with UV inhibitors to protect it from the weather.
Porcelain Insulators are often more expensive per unit ...
