Tapes, Wires and Braids are used on portable fences rather than the galvaniz​ed wire used on permanent fences. These conductors are ideal for portable electric fences as they are light, visible and easy to wind.​​

Tips for the Use of Polywire

Polywires, Polytapes, and Polybraids consist of robust plastic threads, which are intertwined with different conducting materials. Wires with different strengths and various conductive materials are available and should be selected according to their intended use.

Because of its flexibility and tear resistance, Polywire is a very good option for both fencing-in and -out, such as a protective measure against wildlife habitat. Since the damage to agricultural fields equals millions, electric fences are increasingly being used. 

Due to their high conductivity and fracture load, electric fences are particularly suitable for livestock farming. Since the Polywire is not as visible as Polytape, with signal colors are recommended to achieve optimal visibility for animals and humans.

Polywire offers powerful voltage even in long fences, because it has a low electrical resistance. A high-quality electric fence energizer charger and regular inspection is necessary, of course, so that growing grass or bushes do not disturb the voltage. For more information on building an effective electric fence visit our guide page

Tips for the Purchase of Polywire 

  • Polywire is mainly used for fencing cattle. Since these are sensitive to current and not as fast as horses (for which a more visible Polytape is necessary), wire is sufficient for secure fencing of cattle pastures.
  • Standard: Polywire brands are suitable for short fences and portions of pastures up to 200-300m max
  • Better: or medium to long fence systems, the Profi Polywire is recommended as the exceptionally conductive TriCOND wires makes it 5 times more effective.
  • Best: for long fence systems the Turbo and Extreme wires are the premium high conductive wires. Since the conductor wires are permanently re-electrified and externally applied, optimal contact is ensured when animals touch the rope.
  • The Premium WildHog Polywire was developed specifically for warding off wildlife. Due to its blue color, it is visible for wild animals and the external tinned copper conductor wires guarantee effective animal contact.
    We recommend buying a few Litzclip® fence connectors, which can be used to repair any breaks or cracks easily, quickly and without tools.
