Electric fence post advisor

Which is the right electric fence post for me?

 

Electric fence posts form an essential component in any electric fence system and create the basis for ensuring a high degree of safety.

If the wrong type or an unsuitable electric fence post is used, problems will soon arise. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you choose the right electric fence post and avoid any nasty surprises. As there is such a broad range of electric fence posts available, we will focus here on the four traditional types: Plastic electric fence posts, wooden electric fence posts, fibreglass electric fence posts and fence posts made of steel

This is followed by a summarising table, providing a quick overview of the detailed characteristics and tips.

Plastic electric fence posts

In recent decades, plastic electric fence posts have replaced the earlier traditional types such as wooden posts. This is because plastic electric fence posts are very cheap to produce. The general development of technical procedures and the production of materials have added to their success. Therefore, there are two aspects which you should take into account when purchasing plastic electric fence posts:

When buying your electric fence posts, look for the feature “glass fibre reinforced”. This industrial material is commonly used and very popular. It is used in applications exposed to a high degree of mechanical stress. Glass fibre reinforced electric fence posts have much greater elasticity than those without. This means that they bend without breaking. They are also able to resist tensile forces. However, this does not mean that the posts do not break at all. Breaking is a necessary feature of the post to ensure the safety of animals. The fact that the post breaks reduces the risk of injury if, despite everything, an animal actually manages to break through the fence. When purchasing your electric fence posts, look for the characteristic “UV-stabilised plastic”. In this case, certain additives have been introduced to the plastic which considerably increase the durability of the electric fence posts. The beneficial effects include the fact that colour is retained, the surface maintains its compact structure and, in general, the electric fence post does not become brittle or break – even when under stress.

Accessories for plastic electric fence posts

The advantage compared to wood and metal electric fence posts is that plastic electric fence posts already come equipped with insulators, i.e. the electric fence post features notches and brackets which, due to the insulating property of the plastic, can be used directly. Depending on the model, the electric fence posts come with various arrangements of eyelets for electric fence tape, electric fence polywire and electric fence rope (on wooden or metal electric fence posts, this must be retrofitted). Thanks to this varied accessories you are certain to be able to find the model which suits your requirements. Depending on the local conditions, it may be beneficial to choose, for example, electric fence rope rather than electric fence tape (lower wind load susceptibility).

Electric fence posts with a single footplate

Electric fence posts with a single footplate enable the post to be thrust easily into the soil. A double-sided footplate is recommended for harder ground.

Electric fence posts with a double-sided footplate

The load can be distributed more evenly with a double-sided footplate so that the post directly enters the soil even when the ground is hard. The base on the double-sided footplate also serves as a ground rest, thus providing increased stability.

Electric fence posts with a single tip

Electric fence posts with a single tip provide excellent stability in the ground under normal soil conditions. Here, “normal” means not overly soft, so that the electric fence post can maintain a firm position. For very soft soil, we recommend the use of a double tip.

Electric fence posts with a double tip

Electric fence posts with a double tip maintain their position extremely well even in soft soil. Thus, even in difficult conditions, the posts can be placed well into the ground and maintain a better position.

Strain relief

With both types of electric fence post (single or double tip), we always recommend using a strain relief device to ease any forces exerted in one direction. Tensile forces always occur in places where the conducting material changes direction, i.e. in the corners. It is best to place permanent fence posts in these areas. If this is not possible, we recommend using struts to strengthen the electric fence posts in the corners. This greatly improves the way in which the conducting material is guided, which, in turn, has an extremely positive effect on the durability of the conducting material.

Height of electric fence posts

Electric fence posts are available in a range of heights. Common sizes include 75 cm, 110 cm and 156 cm. These sizes cover the main animal groups. Always buy posts suited to the size of the animal and never less than its height in hands. Fences which are higher than the height in hands ensure greater visibility. The top electric fence conductor should not be lower than the height in hands of the animal. Otherwise, this would have a negative impact on your electric fence’s ability to ensure safety. In addition, in the event of damage caused by failure to observe height limits, this would be regarded as negligent and could have serious judicial consequences. Judicial rulings exist, particularly with regard to the height of fences, stating, for example, that a fence must be at least 4/5ths of the animal’s height in hands.

Conclusion: plastic electric fence posts

To summarise, it can be said that plastic electric fence posts made with the latest materials and electrical fence designs have now become indispensable. The advantages are clear. With plastic posts, there is the immediate option of using the electric fence conducting material directly by means of the built-in insulators. This saves time and effort when assembling electric fences. New plastic materials are constantly being developed. Plastic materials are durable and long-lasting. Therefore, they offer excellent value for money. Compact electric fence posts save a great deal of time. Therefore, plastic electric fence posts are ideal for use as mobile electric fences and can also be used as part of a permanent or longer-term electric fence investment.

Wooden electric fence posts

Wooden electric fence posts are the oldest known type of electric fence. Electric fences were usually made of wood only, and had a specific design whereby smaller pieces of wood were used as struts to form a fence. This type of electric fence is still used in Scandinavian countries such as Sweden, Finland and Norway. In Germany, wooden electric fences are mainly used in conjunction with electric fence conductor material. In recent years, the timber sector has also undergone further developments which have turned wooden electric fence posts into an attractive material, especially for building permanent fences. When purchasing wooden electric fence posts, make sure that they are made of high-quality timber. The use of oak is preferred as it is extremely resistant to rot and insect infestation and is therefore an attractive option for electric fences. For this type of fence, oak panels are cut into four or eight pieces, giving the electric fence post a rather rustic appearance. This type of electric fence post is very often used to keep pigs and cows safe. Alternatively, various methods now exist to increase the durability of less noble types of wood such as pine. For example, there is the “pressure impregnation” method which is used to refine wood. This is a process whereby the wood is impregnated under extremely high pressure. This method protects the wood against rot and insect infestation for very long periods of time.

Accessories for wooden electric fence posts

At first glance, wooden electric fence posts used on their own would not appear to be an ideal electric fence. It is only when electric fence insulators are added that wooden electric fence posts really become effective. However, anyone who ever paid attention to their physics lessons at school will argue that wood is a non-conductive material. This may well be true, however, this property changes when the wood becomes damp. When damp, wood becomes conductive, weakening your electric fence system and thus reducing safety or even rendering the electric fence useless. Due to their special design, electric fence insulators prevent electricity from being conducted even in damp conditions. We offer electric fence insulators for wooden electric fence posts to suit your requirements. Our wide variety of electric fence insulators will enable you to choose the right type to suit your conducting material.

Wooden electric fence posts with a single tip

Unlike plastic electric fence posts, the wooden version only comes with a single tip. This is due to the fact that its main use is for permanent fences, i.e. electric fences which are permanently installed. However, increased cost is associated with this type of assembly in comparison to plastic electric fence posts. In general, wooden electric fence posts are embedded in the ground. Machines can be used to do this. In both cases, the cost is considerably higher than simply installing plastic electric fence posts in the ground. Therefore, you need to be clear in advance about how you wish to put up your electric fence. Otherwise you will only encounter unnecessary expense and non-essential additional costs. With good planning and by installing your fence in a satisfactory manner, you can create an electric fence with above-average quality, durability and safety. In addition, by using suitable conducting materials and insulators for your electric fence you can achieve the necessary degree of safety.

Strain relief

Due to their stability and anchorage in the earth, wooden electric fence posts do not generally require strain relief. This is only recommended in cases in which wire is used in professional electric fence construction. It makes sense in this case to mount additional wooden struts on the post to relieve the extremely high forces which can be exerted on electric fences with wire.

Height of electric fence posts

Electric fence posts are available in a range of heights. Popular OctoWood electric fence posts are available in lengths of 150 cm to 220 cm. Compared to plastic electric fence posts, these posts are suitable for animal groups with a height in hands of approx. 110 cm–120 cm. Due to their durability and high quality, OctoWood electric fence posts are particularly popular for use in building horse fences. Oak electric fence posts offer an alternative to OctoWood electric fence posts. They are generally available in shorter lengths. For this reason, they are more readily used for animals with a height in hands of under 110 cm.

Conclusion: wooden electric fence posts

In summary, it can be said that the look varies according to the type of wood chosen. All types can be used, from rustic oak to high-pressure impregnated OctoWood posts. As a natural product, the longevity and quality of oak can tend to vary considerably, whereas industrially refined OctoWood posts always fulfil the same consistent standards. Due to the many different types of electric fence insulators that exist, it is possible to easily adapt both types of wood to your electric fence system depending on the type of animal that you wish to fence in. The cost of installing a wooden electric fence system is not exactly low, therefore careful planning is required in advance. However, with careful planning, wooden electric fence posts can be used to install an extremely high-quality and long-lasting electric fence. The high price is justified by the system’s long durability.

Fibreglass electric fence posts

Fibreglass is a commonly used material found in a wide variety of products. It is often used, above all, due to its resistance to weathering and longevity. Therefore it is ideal for outdoor use, and after having proven its worth for many years in the automobile and building industries, it has found its way into electric fence construction in recent years. The advantages offered by electric fence posts made of fibreglass is that they have a particularly low net weight and volume, but do not compromise stability. When purchasing this type of fence, make sure that you take note of the manufacturer’s warranty³, for example, with regard to UV resistance.

Accessories for fibreglass electric fence posts

At first glance, fibreglass electric fence posts may tend to look rather spartan. Depending on the model, versions are available with a single tip made of fibreglass or with a reinforced tip. Most versions have a metal or plastic tip. These posts do not necessarily include mounting options for conducting material. However, it is possible to retrofit the posts with additional electric fence insulators.

Strain relief

As with plastic electric fence posts, tensile forces are always exerted in places where the conducting material changes direction. Therefore, we recommend placing permanent fence posts in these places. Alternatively, it is possible to use struts to counteract the forces. This will guide the conducting material far better, thereby ensuring that it lasts longer.

Equipment for fibreglass electric fence posts

Fibreglass electric fence posts are available in heights of 110 cm to 160 cm. Due to this baseline height, they are predominantly used for sheep, pigs and horses or ponies. As with the other types of electric fence post, when choosing the right height, remember to pay attention to the height in hands of the animals that you wish to protect. Note that the top conducting line must not be lower than the animal’s height in hands. Anything lower than this will lead to safety issues and could also cause problems where insurance cover is concerned.

Conclusion: fibreglass electric fence posts

In summary, due to their material properties, fibreglass electric fence posts offer particular advantages compared with other types of electric fence post. Thanks to their flexibility and lightness, together with their stability and durability, they are an extremely attractive option for mobile electric fence systems. They are becoming more and more popular, particularly for use as horse fences, and can be increasingly seen out in the fields due to their low purchase price.

Steel electric fence posts

Electric fence posts made of steel are one of the more traditional types of electric fence. They have been used for many years, and, particularly in the area of cattle fencing, are considered synonymous with electric fences.

Accessories for steel electric fence posts

Steel electric fence posts have similar accessories to fibreglass electric fence posts. All the essentials have been thought of, and they are perfect for the intended use. As steel electric fence posts are predominantly used in cattle farming, typical spring steel posts only feature one electric fence insulator head through which the conducting material is introduced. Depending on the model, you can use stranded wire, wire, rope or fencing tape.

Strain relief

In general, due to the short height of only approx. 105 cm, the material reinforcement of the metal and the oval design, no additional strain relief is required in corners. However, if you do require strain relief, use well-established solutions such as permanent fence posts or struts.

Spring steel electric fence posts

Spring steel electric fence posts are available in heights of 105 cm. Due to this baseline height, they are predominantly used for sheep, pigs and horses or ponies.

Conclusion

To sum up, we can say that steel electric fence posts have become firmly established in the area of cattle farming. They are ideally suited to this purpose and have now become indispensable in the area of electric fencing. One advantage is that these posts are not expensive. Thus you get an extremely durable product for an extremely good price.
