Products: Insulators for Wire
Adviser: Insulators for wire
Electric fences are popular not just for safety reasons but also due to their flexibility. They can be used on a mobile or permanent basis and can be designed with different levels of power and heights. A wide range of conductors is also available. The latter factor also means that high demands are placed on insulators for electric fences. Electric fence insulators for wire are just one of many options available for reliably protecting animals and keeping them safely fenced in.
The insulator is an equally important component of the electric fence
Prior to purchasing an electric fence system, we recommend that you keep certain considerations in mind. After all, the choice of fence model with accessories depends on the widest variety of factors – the type of animal, the conditions of the plot of land, your budget and the precise purpose of the fence. As far as the conducting material is concerned, the following options are available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages or special product characteristics:
- electric fence tape
- rope / cord
- polywire / wire
Taking this into account, you can opt for matching tape insulators, rope insulators and wire insulators. The major advantage with electric fence insulators is that most products are suitable for more than one type of conducting material. Electric fence insulators for wire ,for example, can also be used with polywire or rope, whereby tape and broad tape, in particular, should be combined with electric fence insulators designed especially for them. When purchasing electric fence insulators, it’s important that they match the type and size of the other fence system’s components. This means the fence posts made of metal or wood and the conductors, as the electric fence insulators for polywire join these two fence components together. At the same time, they provide insulation against electricity, so that this can flow through the conducting material rather than flowing unused into the ground.

If you are looking for wire insulators, you will find exactly what you’re looking for with classic ring insulators. These are designed for use with electric fence wires, polywire and rope. Electric fence wire insulators are made of special plastic which is resistant to UV rays, damp and cold temperatures and, to some extent, is strengthened by a metal core or wooden thread. The special insulators for critical parts of the fence such as the start, end, corner or gate, and popular electric fence insulators, are easily attached via a snap lock to ensure a secure and non-slip hold. The electric fence insulators must close extremely tightly around the small diameter of the thin wires. This is not a problem for high-quality ring insulators made by well-known brands. The robust insulators can be screwed or nailed on so that they can sustain heavy loads in the long term. The conducting material passes through them instead of being clamped on. Screw-in aids can be ordered if required or are included in the scope of delivery. The same applies to galvanised insulator screws in 50-piece kits. If necessary, the practical, long-lasting ring insulators made of high-voltage resistant plastic can be provided with a counter nut.
