The Secret to Building a Low Maintenance Electric Fence

Today, we’re diving into the world of electric fences with a mission to simplify your life. Let’s face it, whether you’re a seasoned farmer or a newcomer to rural living, the challenge of building a robust electric fence is all too familiar. But what if I told you there’s a way to make the process easier and more reliable?

The Heart Of The Matter: Fence Posts

The cornerstone of any electric fence is, undeniably, the fence post. Yet, this fundamental component is often the very source of frustration. Whether timber, metal, or concrete, posts have a notorious tendency to short-circuit your electric wire, rendering your fence ineffective. And that’s a problem we can’t ignore.

From timber to metal to concrete, each type of post demands additional insulators to prevent those pesky short-outs. These insulators come in a myriad of forms – from poly clips for steel posts to various sleeves for wooden and concrete posts. Plastic, Bakelite, Ceramic, Porcelain – you name it, there’s an insulator made from it. However, these necessary add-ons not only hike up the cost but also extend the time it takes to build your fence.

The Wear And Tear Of Insulators

Insulators, while essential, are not invincible. Over time, they can break or wear out. When this happens, your fence starts shorting out again, and before you know it, your livestock are making a break for it, either into forbidden pastures or out onto the open road.

Growing up on a dairy farm in Victoria’s Western districts, I remember the constant battle against shorts in our electric fences. Dairy cattle, like most animals, have an uncanny sense when a fence fails, and they don’t hesitate to exploit it. The aftermath? Chaos, as they invade fresh pastures or even wander off the property.

The Search For A Better Solution

So, is there a better way? Is there a more efficient method to insulate your posts from the electric wire?

The answer is a resounding yes, and it comes in the form of the EnduraPost Square Picket. This innovative product eliminates the need for separate insulators altogether. The post itself is the insulator, a game-changer in the world of electric fencing.

Embrace The New Era Of Fencing

Gone are the days of adding insulators to each post and the ongoing maintenance they require. With EnduraPost Square Picket, you can install one wire, ten wires, or any number in between, and rest assured they will remain insulated without the risk of shorting out. The post itself does all the work.

Imagine never having to deal with broken insulators or chasing down faults as your insulators age. With EnduraPost, you can build a sturdy, permanent electric fence that stands the test of time and the elements, without the constant worry about insulation issues.
