Electric Fence maintenance is essential for maintaining your security. People rarely buy a car without a maintenance plan, why should your electric fencing and security be any different?  You might think that your electric fence is working… but how do you really know… and are you willing to touch it to find out? Some of the issues for electric fence maintenance include;

  • Vegetation
  • Check earth spikes are connected
  • Broken insulator bobbins
  • Broken wires


Once an electric fence has been installed cannot be left to maintain itself. Compliance certificates require the owner or operator of the fence to ensure the fence is working properly at all times.
