Features and Benefits
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.
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.
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.

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.
