An electric fence is used for enclosing (protecting) livestock and for deterring and keeping away wild animals. At the same time it serves as a visual indicator of land boundaries. Electric fences are quite different to permanent fences, e.g. mesh wire or panel fences, which are in essence a purely mechanical barrier. Electric fences mostly work on the basis of providing a deterrent using pulses of electricity. This has many advantages over permanent fences. First and foremost is the lower costs and higher flexibility which has led to electric fences being used increasingly widely.
Whether that is a 1000 x 500 m cow pasture in the countryside or simply a 1 x 1 m fenced off part of the garden to protect young apple trees from predators. Electric fences can be used in the most diverse of locations.
As soon as someone touches the fence, they receive an electric shock. This electric shock is not dangerous, but it is certainly unpleasant and has a deterrent effect.
Classic car fans can protect their precious vehicles from expensive marten attacks, chicken keepers can use electric fences to keep the foxes away and gardening enthusiasts can protect their beds from unwanted guests like wild pigs and deer.
