There are numerous styles and materials for making an electric gate, Spring Gates, Retracting Gates, Bungi Cord gates, high tensile wire or self-constructed gates using tape or rope. The least successful gates occurred the year we used bungi from a company, and the bungi turned out to be a real lemon. It stretched and sagged so fast that our son-in-law said he was certain he heard the lead horse telling the others as he installed the gates “don’t worry girls, just give it a couple of days- the gate will sag to the ground and we’re out of here”. To remove the sag we kept tying bow knots in the bungi until it began to look like one continuous knot.
Whichever product or method you use there are a few simple rules to follow and these are clearly outlined in the image below;-
It is possible to electrify a wooden or metal gate by stringing a length of wire between two insulators. This wire is then connected to the rest of the fence by a loose length of insulated High Voltage cable that is long enough to allow the gate to open without snagging. This may be seen in the diagram below.
