The electric fence is the most effective single deterrent yet devised. 3 or more
strands of high voltage wires strung aro7und the perimeter is enough to insure
that no intruders or trespassers invade your privacy and security of your home
and property. The high voltage fence or wall addition is especially suited to
industrial and commercial security. When properly designed and installed, an
electric security fence is the least expensive, safest, and most secure method
for securing property and lives when compared to walls, other types of fences,
human guards, and animals. The fence does NOT sleep. The fence CANNOT be bribed.
The fence does NOT require food or water. A well designed electric fence has
more deterrence value than a pot bellied guard with a sawed off shotgun that
hasn’t been fired for years to a snarling pit bull.
An Electric Security Fence is designed to protect property, livestock,
production, manufacturing, and lives.
When designing your electric security fence, keep in mind the above two
statements and each individual item that applies. Also to “keep out” or to “keep
in” or “both” are all valid considerations.
The strongest proven fact with regard to Electric Security Fences is the
“lethal look”. The fact the fence looks deadly. The fact that the fence looks
like it will kill, harm, hurt, or maim. However, the fence is completely
non-lethal and will administer no more pain or harm than a stinging slap, so the
“lethal” look is most important.
If an existing wall or fence is in place, then it is a matter of
designing a “fence extension” with a “lethal look” while achieving minimal cost
and still maintain effectiveness.
The smallest effective “fence extension” consists of 3 strands where one
(1) strand is grounded (ground potential) and a minimum of two (2) charged
strands. The reason for 2 charged strands is security. You make the connections
to achieve one (1) charged wire that goes out and then returns on the second
strand. If you connect both the outgoing and returning ends to the charger,
then, even if cut, the high tensile wire is charged from both ends. The more
secure reason is, the returning high tensile wire is connected to a voltage
monitor and alarm.
Therefore all electric security fences should have an even number of
charged “high tensile” strands. 2, 4, 6, 8, etc. strands.
A voltage monitor attached to the very end of the charged strand will
sound and alarm or siren if the wire is cut or shorted making the voltage drop.
Although very few petty thieves will attempt to cut through the fence, the
fence/voltage monitor makes the electric security fence into an alarm sounding
security device when tampered with. If the fence is designed to make it very
difficult to pass without a resultant shock, and then coupled with a voltage
fence monitor becomes an extremely effective security system. The final
determination will always be a balance to whether the additional level of
security is worth the added cost of a voltage monitor.
Grounded Strands: the high tensile strands should alternate with grounded
strands. The grounded strands should be insulated exactly like the high tensile
strands. If all the strands are insulated, the fence is perceived as much more
lethal, and therefore becomes much more effective. If an intruder actually
decides to cut a wire, not knowing which are grounded strands and which are
charged strands makes the fence retain a higher security rating.
A fence is designed with 3 or more strands. Usually, the top strand and
the bottom strand are charged, however, there are some cases where a grounded
strand is added as the topmost strand to help ward of falling foliage, fronds,
etc to help prevent the plants from shorting out the high tensile strands. Also,
if the electric fence is constructed from ground level, then the bottom strand
may be a grounded strand to prevent weeds and grass from shorting out the “high
When considering the design of the electric security fence, look around
at what is already being used. The coiled barbed wire and barbed wire strands
that top off most fences are meant to look hurtful and difficult to get over and
around. Also the broken glass that is embedded on the top of many walls needs to
be plainly visible to be truly effective, and works because it is visible and
makes it more difficult for a trespasser to scale the wall, so that hopefully
the trespasser will bypass this property and pick another house or property to
break into, where it is easier to gain access.
A wall or fence is just a device that defines your property line, and
sometimes provides some privacy. Any wall or fence can be easily scaled. And if
you make the walls higher, the intruder uses a pole or ladder or tree and climbs
over. There are many ways that even a very high wall can be scaled and
Dogs are one of the better methods that will provide an alarm. However if
the dog is tied or caged, then it is only able to provide noise, which is
effective only if someone is there to hear the barking. Dogs can be poisoned;
require care, feeding and sleep. In contrast, an electric security fence deters
someone from even trying to trespass and is actually more effective than a 15
meter high wall and never sleeps and can provide noise if tampered with.
When a thief or trespasser picks a house or property to rob, they will
invariably pick a target that is easy to gain access to, and they will pick a
target that offers the least risk and exposure to themselves. A well designed
electric security fence will virtually eliminate all petty theft and
trespassers. They won’t even try to gain access.
The primary object of an electric security fence is NOT to shock the
intruder or trespasser in the process of scaling your fence or wall, but to
persuade the intruder that it is not worth the trouble to try to get onto your
property in the first place. Let the thief go to another house that is an easier
target for him. Stop the intruder from trying to trespass onto your property
before he even attempts. If he suspects that your fence is a bluff, a very few
might touch the charged wires and the resultant shock will completely convince
them otherwise. Electric fence .Even if the trespasser suspects that the voltage
is “non-lethal” he will not be sure, and he will be quick to try a different
property. This is why “the lethal look” of the fence is just as, and even more
important than the fact that the fence is actually charged. People are scared of
electricity. People can’t see electricity. If people perceive that the fence is
dangerous, then it becomes effective.
Every municipal ordinance that is available for review, require warning
signs spaced approximately every 10 meters or less. The municipal requires
“warning signs” from a liability perspective, but it has been shown that these
signs, by them selves, are as effective as the fence itself in keeping out
trespassers even when, or if the fence is turned off. When you have a “lethal
looking” fence combined with “warning signs”, the fence now becomes almost
totally effective is stopping passage through or over the fence. (NOTE: there is
absolutely NO device or method devised that has proven to be 100% effective)
The “warning signs” take a lightly designed fence and transform it into a
“most lethal looking” fence. Keep in mind that the electric fence is completely
non-lethal and not dangerous to the smallest most vulnerable animal. When
shocked repeatedly, new born baby rabbits are not harmed. The fence will
administer a stinging and most unpleasant feeling shock, but will not physically
harm an animal, child, or adult. So you need to understand, that the fence is an
elaborate bluff, that will slap their wrist hard if someone chooses to ignore
Because of the “non-lethal” action of the electric fence, the legal
liability exposure is very small, however, warning signs about every 10 meters
or so, in plain sight, as close to eye level as possible, minimize the legal
liability exposure to almost nothing.
If you were to plug your fence into the wall outlet/receptacle then you
might indeed kill somebody. Your liability exposure is extreme. Your insurance
will NOT cover you. Wall voltage is not only dangerous, but mostly not
effective. At 220 volts, dry cement, and rubber slippers will insulate you from
a shock, however, if someone accidentally comes in contact with an electrical
ground you may easily be killed.
Dry ground combined with insulated footwear is why 10,000 volts is used,
so as to carry the shock through the ground and the footwear. The “pulse”
technology is what makes it both painful and non-lethal. This technology has
been tested and proven for over 75 years of usage around the world. There are
safety standards all over the world that when met, insure that the shock is
“non-lethal”. The pulse length is approximately 100 microseconds (0.0001
seconds) If you use house voltage on the fence, the fence now becomes
potentially extremely LETHAL !
If you were to hold your arm over a burning candle for several
seconds, you would receive a nasty burn. If you were to pass your arm through
the flame of an acetylene torch (which is much hotter than a candle) and do it
quickly enough, you would escape and not even singe a hair. That is primarily
the safety principle with pulsed electricity charging electric fences. The
safety standards mandate the maximum voltage (not to exceed 10,000 volts) and
the maximum pulse length (not to exceed 300 microseconds) of the pulse and the
repetition rate (not less than ½ second) of the pulse. We use a fence charger
that peaks out at about 9,500 volts and has a pulse length of approximately 100
microseconds and repeats approximately once per second which are all well within
the safety standards that have been set and tested accordingly.
