By its nature, electric fence tape has high electrical resistance and requires large power units. To mitigate this Fieldguard 40mm electric tape is made with 10 x 0.4mm stainless steel filaments, which is perfect when used with our Speedrite electric fence energisers.
Animals touch the edge, so the filaments of the 40mm tape (excluding white) are bunched along each leading edge, and this has a second advantage for if a filament breaks there is no loss of power transmission.
Creatures of flight, particularly horses, have difficulty seeing fencing less than 40mm wide. Therefore we do not sell wire, string, rope, netting or thin tapes.
To create safe horse fencing you require: a wide tape band that can be either fixed to wood uprights for a permanent, safe fence, or onto glass fibre stakes to construct moveable safe field fencing. It is the minimum width that can be seen by a spooked, bolting horse. Easy to self-erect and highly cost-effective, being roughly one quarter of the price of good quality wooden post and rail fencing. It is Ideal for livery yards, stallion fencing and stud farm fencing; the perfect field and paddock fencing.
Fieldguard electric fencing for horses can fulfil every containment need. For instance it can be used to temporarily fence an area, to render a barbed wire fence safe, keep a stallion in (or out) or as a complete, stand-alone field fencing installation. It provides for fantastic stallion fencing.
