POLY TAPE

Features and Benefits

  • Highly visible to animals
  • Lightweight

  • Convenient to install and repair
  • Will not rust

Ideal Uses

  • Excellent for horses
  • Temporary fencing
  • Rotational grazing
  • Equine fence kits
 

Zareba® Systems electric fence poly tape provides even greater visibility than poly wire or poly rope. Reinforced, rip-stop edges also help protect the tape from wear and tear.

The open weave design allows wind to pass through, reducing wear and increasing the longevity of the fence line.

Splicing poly tape is easy using specially designed splicer buckles. Use a poly tape tensioner to maintain tape tension as needed.

For best results, energize poly tape fence lines with a low impedance fence charger. Poly tape should not be used with a continuous output charger.

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.

FAQs

Fence Wire FAQs

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

A: It's a matter of visiblity. 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: Won't poly tape succumb to wear and tear?

A: Poly tape is designed to withstand wear and tear. The open-weave design allows wind to pass through it, reducing wear and increasing longevity of the fence. However. logically poly tape will not last as long as steel wire.

 

Q: What kind of fence wire do I need?

A: Generally, use the most highly visible fence wire you can afford -- for the simple reason that animals can't avoid a fence they don't see. For horses, many owners prefer polytape in conjunction with steel wire. For other animals, yellow and black poly wire may do. And high tensile systems require high tensile steel wire.
