Increased Installation of Electric Fences in Kenya
Electric fence installation is gaining popularity and applicability as many people enhance security around their homes, farms, premises and properties. It makes sense to consider quality fence installation to restrict access to your premises by burglars, strangers and trespassers who, if not prohibited, become a nuisance to your right to privacy.
Electric fences can provide safe and secure boundaries for temporal, semi-permanent and permanent premises and structures more cost-effectively than conventional fences. They are a physical barrier based on the psychology principle. As a robust, reliable and proven barrier, an erected electric fence helps keep wildlife, burglars, intruders, trespassers and idlers away from your premises and other restricted areas. The complex nature of electric fences makes them formidable and valuable in various residential and commercial applications.
Electric fences can be installed on an existing perimeter wall (palisade), on top of walls or as a stand-alone fence (free-standing fence). The electric fence in Kenya can be installed in industrial complexes, housing estates, farms, residential homes, warehouses, military facilities and government facilities with restricted access.
Based on the many inquiries on Electric Fences and Electric Fence installation in Kenya, BigTech Solutions has realized the need to provide solutions to those needing information and how best to secure their homes, farms and business premises.
Types of Electric Fencing to Consider
Electric fencing in Kenya can be something other than a high-cost project, as many perceive it. There are three types of electric fencing, each with cost implications for installation.
1. Permanent Electric Fencing
If you are considering setting up and installing an electric fence system that will stay intact for a long time, permanent electric fencing is the best option. Once established in a given area or premises, it is trouble-free and low maintenance for many years. Such a fencing option requires a combination of wooden, fibreglass, metallic posts and high-tensile wooden wire.
The equipment required for this kind of electric fencing includes:
- Post insulators
- End strain insulators
- Earth Stakes
- Electrified gates
- Joint clamps
- Wire tensioners
- Wooden, metal or fibreglass posts
2. Off conventional Electric Fencing
It consists of an electric fence wire placed a small distance from the existing timber or wire mesh fence. Such fencing prevents wild or domestic animals like cattle from rubbing or pushing against the original fence line. It helps to extend the working life of the original life, which could be compromised if tampered with and put under pressure from the animals and other activities. Off-conventional electric fencing is also a more cost-effective way to feed an electric current around the farm or enclosed area to more distant locations.
Equipment required for this kind of electric fencing includes:
- Wire tensioners
- End strain insulators
- Line post insulators
- Offset brackets
- Earth Stakes.
3. Temporary Electric Fencing
Such type of fencing is designed to be lightweight and easily transportable. Temporal electric fencing, for example, allows large tracks of land to be broken up into sections and serve as paddocks for livestock. The fence can be moved and re-erected quickly using modern technology and equipment.
For livestock on ranches and farms, temporary electric fencing allows stocking density. The number of animals per hectare can be adjusted to control the grazing pressure
Some of the equipment needed for temporal electric fencing include:
- Earth stakes
- Reel and reel post
- Steel wire or poly-wire
- UV-protected posts / plastic posts
- Portable fencing posts, including anchor posts
