Zareba® 5,000 Feet 3-Strand Polywire
Looking for lightweight, portable temporary fencing wire? One that's visible and safer than traditional wire?
Our Zareba® 5,000 Feet 3-Strand Polywire has been designed for temporary fencing and is safer and more visible than traditional wire. It has 3 stainless steel conductor strands and is lightweight, weather resistant and UV protected. This polywire is portable, too, so it's easy to install, re-wind and re-use. Its lightweight (weighs 3 lb per 1,000 feet), non-kinking design makes it great for your temporary fencing needs.
Each roll contains 1000 feet of yellow poly wire. Tensile strength is 151 lb/force.
Note: For use in temporary rotational grazing or in conjunction with permanent, perimeter fencing. It is not intended as the sole means of restraint.
For best results: Use with a low-impedance fence charger. AC-powered fence charger should be UL listed. This product is not intended for use with continuous current or weed chopper type of fence chargers.
Zareba® is the largest manufacturer of electric fence systems offering durable, reliable electric fence products for all of your animal fencing needs.

Review RateAmazon ReviewGreat product, fast delivery.Happy customer.I bought it to do an electric fence for my cows and works perfectly in my land.
Review RateAmazon ReviewI only just restrung my fence this afternoon, but it was a lot easier than when I originally did it with the aluminum wire included in the kit. It's also a lot easier to get this wire nice and taut, and it's much easier to see. Hopefully that last characteristic will prevent the same lawn-mowing fate which befell the late aluminum wire. The jolt it delivers is at least as "noticeable" as the aluminum. I'll update this review if I have any problems with the conductors corroding or otherwise giving out. Until then, assume it's held up nicely and kept the groundhogs out of my wife's veggie garden since the date on the review.

POLY WIRE / POLY ROPE
Features and Benefits
- More visible than traditional wire
- Convenient to install, repair and rewind
- Will not rust
- 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.
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.
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 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.

PERMANENT PERIMETER FENCING
For a permanent perimeter fence, you may want to use high tensile or steel wire as your fence wire.More Expert Tips About Fence Wire»
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.More Expert Tips About Fence Wire»
