Electro Fence


The approved electrified fence has 42 horizontal wires spaced apart at 95mm.

The version with ‘Earthing Rings’ and toroidal insulators must be specified. The height of the APS shall be the height of the host fence plus a minimum of 1.2M acting to form a topping. For example the 3.0M high host fence that was evaluated at RAF Valley required a minimum 4.2M electrified system.

The host fence strength (including foundations) must be suitable to provide support for a tension-wire system typically strained to a tension of 40kg.
