Adviser: Connectors and tensioners for electric fence tape
Choose from a range of different conducting material to construct a particularly safe and functionally effective electric fence. Electric fence tape is particularly tried and trusted. Not only do special insulators exist for this purpose, but connectors and tensioners for electric fence tape are also important for ensuring that the electric fence system operates effectively. What characterises tape connectors and tensioners?
A high level of safety with an electric fence
It is only by paying attention to every little detail that you can fully exploit the potential of your electric fence. Each individual fence system component must be carefully considered. In addition to the energiser, conductors and fence posts also play an important role as they represent the mechanical and electric barrier and are continuously exposed to stress. If you wish to erect a particularly reliable electric fence system, we recommend the use of connectors and tensioners. Whether for general tape connection or as a connector to gate insulators and gate handles, or whether used just when required or when performing repairs on the fence, fence connectors and tensioners are an important tool. They are designed differently for tape than for the other conductors (rope, polywire and wire), as the former are flat and broad rather than round. Use of these components is not mandatory, however they do offer many advantages. They are recommended in the following cases:
- on very long fence systems with many metres of conducting material
- on electric fences subject to high stress and with animals that are difficult to keep safe
- if you have an unusually shaped fence or difficult terrain
- for repairs and extensions
- during construction and conversion
- on the electric fence gate
When choosing tensioners and connectors for electric fence tape, make sure that they are suitable for the type of fence and tape. It helps if you rely on tried-and-tested branded goods.
High-quality, practical polywire clip connectors for electric fence tape
Electric fence tape connectors are generally designed like clasps, and tape connector plates also exist. These are made of galvanised metal or rust-free steel and can be easily mounted with a spanner. Some are designed as tape connectors for broad tape, others are extremely robust and stable while still others are extremely versatile. Out of all the electric fence tape connectors available, quality products made by the top brand “Litzclip” stand out above the rest. What characterises them and why do they ensure so much satisfaction?
Litzclip connectors for electric fence tape do not have to be screwed in, but operate like a snap clip, i.e. similarly to certain insulators. Tool-free installation into the fence system of these connectors for tape, polywire and rope is child’s play and extremely quick to do. The conductors are connected together with a quick move of the hand. Litzclip® stainless-steel tape connectors have synthetic end caps. These are simply pushed outwards after inserting the electric fence tape so that the clips adhere to the tape. It really could not be quicker or simpler to connect conducting material and ensure perfect mechanical and electrical safety. The fact that the tensioner and connector slot for the electric fence tape is very small means that optimum contact is ensured between the connector plate and the conductor. So there’s no need to worry about conductivity. Litzclip tape connectors are compatible with standard electric fence tape and are hard-wearing and weather-resistant. They are even able to resist high tensile forces.
