Fi-Shock® 656 ft, ½ Inch, Polytape
Horses and other animals will be able to see this ½ inch highly visible polytape more easily than regular electric fence wire.
Fi-Shock® 656 ft, ½ Inch, Polytape has 656 feet (200 meters) of tape on a spool and 5 strands of electrical conductors. It has a breaking load of 150 lb. This polytape is easier to install, repair and splice than regular wiring, and it will not rust.
Note: This is not designed to function under extreme tension and must be used in conjunction with a permanent fence.
Wire Height Guide by Animal
The height and spacing of the wires will vary with the animal you are containing. Some typical wire spacing options are shown below. Position one electrified wire at shoulder height of the animals being contained; this will cause the animals to hit the fence with their nose. Once they receive the shock, they will learn to stay away from the fence.
Determine Your Perimeter Length
This chart offers assistance in determining perimeter length of your electric fence. These distances are based on square-shaped perimeters. Acreage is not limited to one shape, but can be round, oval, square, rectangular, or irregular as long as the square footage is correct.

There are several types of electric fence wire including polytape, polywire/polyrope, steel and aluminum. Each of these types have certain benefits and are ideally suited to particular uses.
Polytape is most often used around horses to help the animal see the electric fence and thus avoid contact with it. Woven into the polytape are wires called conductors. One differentiating point with polytape is the number of conductors that are woven into the product.
Another feature to consider is the type of metal from which the conductors are made. Aluminum wire will stretch over time and the fence will look sloppy. Conductors made from stainless steel will hold its tensile and thus last longer.
Fi-Shock® Polytape comes in three different widths including ½ inch, 1 inch and 2 inch. The Fi-Shock® ½ inch has 5 strands, the 1 inch has 8 strands and the 2 inch has 14 strands. Fi-Shock® conductors are made from stainless steel to hold its tensile and thus last longer.
Polywire and polyrope are also used in electric horse fencing to help the horse or animal see the electric fence and thus avoid contact with it. As with polytape, wires called conductors are woven into the polywire and polyrope. It is important to consider the type of metal from which the conductors are made.
Aluminum wire will stretch over time, resulting in a sloppy-looking fence. Conductors made from stainless steel will help the fence hold its tensile and thus hold its shape and last longer.
Fi-Shock® conductors are made from stainless steel. The smallest diameter polywire has 6 strands of electrical conductors while all other diameter polywire has 9 conductors.
