Electric fencing is a conductive wire with electric voltage that is used in fencing. High pulsed voltage (2 – 10 kV) is sent along the wire that gives anyone who touches it a shock, as the amperage or current is low the shock is not dangerous. Electric fencing may be solid metal wire, but often it is plastic tape or rope that contains metal threads. The benefit of plastic is that animals can pull it off or rip it when they become entangled. Gallagher is the worldwide market leader in electric-fencing devices.
