When it comes to your electric fence system, electric fence insulators can seem like a small component of the entire framework. However, these little pieces of equipment are the key to ensuring that your electric fence works properly. Finding the best electric fence insulators can be daunting, but here at Jono & Johno, we can help you find the right one for your fence.
The insulator you need varies depending on what material your fence is made of, what types of posts you’re using and what part of the line you’re dealing with. Certain electric fence insulators can only accommodate particular types of material. For example, electro-tape insulators only cater to elector-tape. Porcelain wire insulators are a good all-round option though because they can be used on all types of wiring and, if installed correctly, can last as long as the fence. Though they have less shatter resistance and lower height tolerances than other electric fence insulators, such as standoff insulators.
Some insulators are put in place by being nailed in or screwed in. Depending on the size and shape, these different types of insulators can accommodate both temporary and permanent structures.
The most crucial factor when choosing an insulator is knowing what kind of fence you’ll be using. Here are the common types.
Pigtail electric fence insulators are one of the best insulator types on the market today. They are long lasting, resilient and can effectively prevent animals from pushing the posts over.
Offset insulators are the ones that stop livestock from approaching the fence. Bolt-on offset electric fence insulators can accommodate every kind of live material. Offset brackets are also available to carry live or earth wire along the electric fence line.
Electric fence corner post insulators speak for themselves and are a necessary part of your electric fence system. Bolt-on ones can be used for the ends of the fence line and are suitable for a variety of fencing.
