Electric Fence Wire
Electric Fence Wire must be strong enough to take the mechanical strain of fence construction, and also be strong enough to withstand the pressure applied by the animals you are trying to contain. If you are building a fence for small or domestic animals , a lighter gauge wire such as 19 gauge is usually sufficient. When constructing a fence for larger animals or predators 17 gauge wire works well.
To build an electric fence you will need a charger along with posts, insulators, fence wire or poly fencing and a grounding system. For basic information on electric fences see our Electric Fence Knowledge Base. You may also want to include a gate handle, lightning protection and a cutout switch. We carry all these items except posts, see our Electric Fence page and Electric Fence Supplies pages for our current product line.
