How do I install a gate into my electric fence?

Even in farming, gates for passing through electric fences are necessary. However, gates always present a weak point for the flow of current around the system and should not be installed unless absolutely necessary. The gate should be flanked by permanent wooden posts to ensure sufficient stability. Mount a gate handle insulator onto each of the posts for guiding the conductor through at the desired height. Tension the conducting material (wire, tape or rope) between the permanent posts using a gate handle. Affix the conducting material to the handle insulators, preferably using clip connectors, grommets, gate handle insulators with tape connectors or, the easiest option, our quick connection kit (item no. 44426). Using these will avoid knots and ensure electricity can securely flow. In order to ensure the fence is sufficiently powered even when the gate is open, an additional underground connection across the gate is recommended. To do this, connect the section of fence before and after the gate using an insulated high-voltage lead out cable. Lay this deep enough into the soil (around 30–50cm) and connect each end to the wires either side of the gate using electric fence connectors.

How do I install an electric fence gate into my electric fence?

There are still more options for installing an electric fence gate into the fence. One option uses an elasticated rope. The advantage of this is its higher tensile strength than normal conducting material and contracts when the gate is opened. If closed quickly, the handle can fall to the ground and not be reattached. In this case, the electricity is diverted away through the ground and the fence voltage drops rapidly. Using a gate spring avoids this disturbance as it prevents the handle from falling to the ground. A gate spring also has the advantage of ensuring that the conducting material is constantly tensioned when the gate is closed, and the gate will look maintained.

Warning:
never use handles with tensioning springs in horse fences, as the animals can injure themselves on these. The aforementioned handle kit with elasticated rope is more suitable for horses (item no. 44255).

A flexible gate system lends is a good idea where quick and flexible installation is needed. With these systems, the electric rope or tape rolls up into a drum when the gate is opened. This prevents any disturbances occurring and keeps the conducting material clean.

If you are using electric netting in your fence, then there are a couple of things to note. You will certainly be aware of the problem that it is not particularly easy to pass through the fence with having to take part of it down, thus reducing its safety. Using our door for fence netting you will be able to quickly and easily get access through the net. (Item no.: 27402 und 27407) The door for the fence netting has a narrow mesh electric netting and can be easily installed at any point in your fence. The power supply does not need to be turned off in order to open the door, ensuring the fence keeps its full shock strength. A double door extension set is available.
