Why Electric Fence? | Electric Fence Superstore

Electric fence is easier to install, safer for animals and less expensive than many other types of fencing. “Easier to install” is one of the reasons we use aluminum wire as it has greater flexibility than steel and is 1/3 the weight. Electric fencing is also less expensive since there are fewer parts and pieces to it: posts (at least 25’ apart depending on the terrain), insulators (type of insulator depends on the type of post being used), Gripples and, of course, the energizer and related materials. An electric fence does not require expensive equipment to install. It is unobtrusive. It can be run along an old stone wall and not detract from the beauty of the stone wall and its surroundings. With green posts and aluminum wire, it is barely visible. But the animals (inside and outside the fence) will know it’s there. We have seen these fences containing horses, buffalo, cattle, llamas, alpacas, pigs, sheep and goats, dogs, poultry and the fences are used to keep out deer, bear, coyote, fox, turtles,etc.
