Amazon Review, Does the job! By
I've had a 16 x 11 foot fish pond in my back yard for about 15 years. This spring some raccoons started using it as their swimming hole. So I put up a three wire electric fence around it. I was able to incorporate the pergola I built to keep herons away as posts for the fence. I used these sleeves to complete the three loops of wire (three sleeves per wire as recommended). They did the job and the electric fence is up and running as of this fall. I can't say for certain that the raccoons have been back or not, but the pond has not been bothered since the fence went up. I'll know better in the spring when the coons are sure to return. I can vouch for the fact that the fence is working (ouch!).

Benefits and Considerations of High Tensile Fencing

High tensile fence is an excellent choice to safely contain most species of livestock, including various exotic species. It is also equally effective keeping unwanted predators, deer or other wild animals out.

High tensile is an affordable, low maintenance permanent perimeter fence, lasting over 40 years. It works as a simple barrier fence or can be electrified for greater effectiveness and animal safety.

The key to a successful high tensile fence installation is advanced planning, combined with proper tools and quality materials.

We recommend Zareba® high tensile components, which are rugged, reliable and designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, providing long life for your fence.

Zareba® has developed high tensile videos to help design and build your high tensile system. Once you build a high tensile fence you won't want any other type of fencing system.


Expert Tips


Posts for High Tensile Fencing

Because the distance between posts in a high tensile system can be 30’–90’, and the wire is under tension, wood posts are recommended.

Line posts should be a minimum 4” in diameter, with 6-8” diameter posts used for corner posts and gate posts. In some cases T-posts may be used for line posts.

High Tensile Line Post Insulators:

We recommend either pin lock or tube insulators for high tensile fence systems. Both allow the fence wire to move as needed.

High Tensile Corner & End Post Insulators:

  • Wrap Around Insulator – Slide wire through tube and wrap insulator around corner or end post. Secure with 2” barbed staple. Durable polyethylene with poly insert for added strength.
  • Donut Corner Insulator – made of unbreakable polycarbonate, extremely strong with 5,000-lb. tensile strength.
  • High-strain Corner Insulator - made of fiberglass reinforced nylon, engineered for full tension of 200,000 psi wire.
  • Porcelain - very strong


How to Electrify Your High Tensile Fence

If electrifying your fence, you need to make electrical jumper connections between all electrified fence wires.

Use a length of 12 1/2 gauge wire as a jumper and connect it to a hot wire with one of the extra crimping sleeves placed on the “hot” fence wires prior to tensioning. Crimp to attach.

Then slide a section of insulated plastic tube, or insultube, over the wire to prevent it from touching the non-electric wires. Crimp.

Repeat until all electrified wires are connected. Next, install and connect your electric fence charger to the fence.
