Zareba® 500 Feet, 3-Strand Poly Wire is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazon Review The electric fence poly wire works well as a convenient and effective tool to keep animals (mostly raccoons) out of our garden. It is light, strong, and visible. The conductor is multiple strands of stainless steel, which should last a long time. In a month of operation I have encountered no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazon Review, Works great Exactly what I needed, it's used for portable antenna wire. The cord gives great support and the included wire works fine at 100 watts. Maybe not perfect, but very handy to work with and does exactly what I needed.

POLY WIRE / POLY ROPE

Features and Benefits

  • More visible than traditional wire
  • Lightweight
  • Convenient to install, repair and rewind
  • Will not rust

Ideal Uses

  • Temporary fencing
  • Rotational grazing
  • Controlled grazing
 

Poly wire is a good fence choice since it is more visible than traditional metal wire, lightweight and installs easily. Poly wire is easily tightened, spliced, repaired and rewound. In addition, it can be re-used again and again.

Use a poly wire tightener to maintain wire tension as needed.

This convenient wire can be used for temporary grazing, strip or rotational grazing and pet control. Poly wire should not be used with continuous output chargers

Poly rope is another excellent high visibility choice for your fence line. It is stronger than poly wire, with stainless steel strands woven through the rope.

The steel strands ensure maximum electrical energy is carried through the fence line at all times. Use a splicer to maintain a good connection. Most poly ropes are about 1/4 inch in diameter.

Note: For best results, use a low impedance fence charger to energize poly wire and poly rope fences. Poly rope should not be used with continuous output chargers.

Tips

Expert Tips

WIRE SPACING

The height and spacing of the wires will vary with the animal you are containing. Position one electrified wire at animal’s shoulder height; this will cause it to hit the fence with its nose, making it back up.

POLY TAPE

Use poly tape for horse fencing or in rotational grazing since the animals can easily see this highly visible electric fence wire. Splice poly tape with splicer buckles specially designed for easy splicing and repairing of poly tape.

POLY WIRE

Poly wire is lightweight, so it is very easy to handle. You can rewind it very easily, move it and re-use it. Splice poly wire by tying a good, tight knot to maintain connections. Use a poly wire line tightener on each line and each side of the fence to maintain wire tension.

POLY ROPE

Also highly visible, this electric poly rope is also used for horses and livestock. When repairing poly rope, use a splicer designed for poly rope to maintain a good electrical connection.

FENCE CHARGERS FOR WIRE

Use a low impedance fence charger with poly wire and poly tape products.

PERMANENT PERIMETER FENCING

For a permanent perimeter fence, you may want to use high tensile or steel wire as your fence wire.

FAQs

Fence Wire FAQs

Q: Why is poly tape better for use with horses than regular wire?

A: It's a matter of visibility. Horses can see the tape more readily than wire. Remember, electric fencing is a psychological barrier: after a horse has met up with a poly tape electric fence and has felt the shock, when it sees the poly tape again, it will remember the shock and stay away from the fence.

 

Q: Why should I place one wire at the animal's shoulder?

A: Positioning one electrified wire at animal’s shoulder height will cause the animal to hit the fence with its nose, making the animal back up. See illustration below.

 

Q: What is the advantage of using high-tensile wire rather than aluminum wire?

A: High tensile wire is designed to be both a psychological barrier and a physical barrier. High tensile wire not only carries a shock, it is also sturdy enough to prevent a large bull from penetrating the fence line (as long as it has been installed correctly.)

In addition, aluminum wire can stretch out over time as tension is applied to it (very slowly). High tensile wire will not stretch; this affordable barrier can last for many, many years.
