Adviser: Connectors and tensioners for electric fence wire
Electric fences enjoy vast popularity particularly because there are so many different possibilities for equipping, optimising and using them. The combination of a mechanical and electric barrier, and the wide range of high-quality components characterise the construction, together with the high level of safety. You should particularly make sure that conductors are handled correctly and that you choose the right accessories so that your fence system always remains fully functional. Fence tensioners and fence connectors play an important role in this respect. What characterises connectors and tensioners for electric fence wire?
Equipped for all circumstances
Electric fences are exposed to various types of stress, and sophisticated constructions in particular should be secured and improved. Electric fence connectors are used for this purpose. While insulators are designed for attaching the conducting material to the fence posts, fence connectors are used for connecting the conductors together. In theory, rope, polywire, tape or wire could easily be tied together, however, this is not advised. Doing so would run the risk of damaging the conducting material or impeding the flow of electrical energy. Electric fence wire connectors are used to avoid this. These are complemented by fence tensioners. If you want to keep your hands free when erecting or repairing the fence, synthetic tensioners can help as they hold the conductor in position so that it does not sag or slip.

Wire connectors are made of galvanised metal or, ideally, from rust-free stainless steel. This makes them robust, durable and hard-wearing. A common feature of electric fence wire connectors is that they have a far smaller diameter than standard fence connectors for tape, rope and polywire. Depending on the model, the specially designed wire connectors are suitable for wire with a diameter of up to 3 mm. High-performance models are equipped with screws, nuts and two stainless steel washers to ensure optimum conductor contact and high electrical conductivity. Alternatively, wire connection clips – for example for connecting the lead out cable or for cross-connection – are available. Re-tensioning is also possible with wire connectors. Temperature compensation springs and practical T-clips for attaching the wire to the start and end of the fence, handy aluminium wire tensioners and clamps round off the comprehensive range of products.
