You may think that all Electric Fence insulators are the same. Quality will greatly affect the reliability and effectiveness of your fence. There are many types available for all kinds of rope, wire or tape. We only sell electric fence insulators that have premium insulation quality in excess of 20000 volts to ensure YOUR electric fence is effective.
Our solid, plastic electric fence insulators are designed to handle and prevent tracking of at least 22000volts. They are specifically designed to efficiently drain rain water away to prevent tracking in wet weather.
One of the primary rules of Electric Fencing construction is that the conducting material (the fence - tape, rope or wire) must touch nothing but plastic. Insulators are required to hold the fence material on the post that supports it, while preventing the fence from contacting any surface that may lead to leakage in current. Insulation in any form should be up to the mark and sustainable. Cheap generic insulators, made of brittle plastic which only last a few years, may be unreliable and inefficient.
The purpose of insulators is to ensure that the full amount of energy discharged into the wire is channeled through the intruder/animal when the circuit is closed. They are a "must have" for a reliable electric fence.
Insulators may be broken down into two categories;-
These are designed to hold the tape type of conductor in a range of widths but most commonly 10mm, 20mm or 40mm tapes. Although a 40mm insulator will take a 10mm tape it does look a bit ridiculous.
Free Flowing Insulators. These allow the tape to run and help the tape to stretch when an animal challenges the fence when it may return to its correct standing when the pressure is over. Not suitable in wind swept locations as they allow the tape to flap excessively. These are the cheapest type of tape insulator.
Clamp Insulators. The name says it all and these are the most common. They hold the tape in position and prevent the tape stretching. They do minimise the flap that occurs with the wind but do not eliminate it.
