Tackling some of the Myths surrounding Electric Fence

Electric Fences can sometimes scare people. That is what they are intended to do, but security consultants shouldn’t be scared of this very effective solution.

AFI member Advanced Perimeter Systems have released a video to help explain the myths around electric fencing – view it here

The first question people often ask about the 10,000 pulsed volts Electro-fence is how can that be non-lethal? Or often asked “Is it Legal?”.

Not only is it legal, it’s also the safest perimeter deterrent out there. Unlike barbed or razor wire fences, which often leave kids and pets sustaining horrific injuries, with Electro-Fence the only thing that will be injured is the trespasser’s pride. In an era where there are plenty out there willing to turn to litigation, that’s worth considering. By delivering a pulsed 10,000 volt shock, Electro-Fence delivers a nasty short sharp shock which will repel intruders, not kill them…

All of our energisers are backwards compatible to make expansion or upgrades simple. We support our product ranges with excellent customer service throughout the product life-cycle so that no matter how long the system has been in place we will have the parts to fix it if ever required.

People often assume that running a 10,000-volt electric fence will take you to the bank and cost a fortune. Well, it may come to a surprise for most to find out that boiling your kettle will use more power than our 10,000-volt, electric fence.

The average power consumption of APS electric fence is 8 watts with the peak power consumption rising to only 20 watts when in alarm. The average kettle power consumption is around 400 watts to boil a cup, crazy! That’s 20 times the power consumption of APS electric fence. APS offer an electric fence with a solar power option, meaning it can run off fully renewable energy, so not only is it cheaper than a cup of tea, its free if using solar!

Many of our Electric fences have been in place for years, still fully effective and functioning with very little maintenance. We are seeing an increasing number of client opting to upgrade their fence to an APS system due to the performance and reliability of our energisers, not to mention excellent lifetime customer support, making retrofit an easier project than you might imagine.

The obvious physical presence of the electric fence with its bright yellow warning signs presents a potent front-line deterrent. Access to the premises can therefore be denied at the perimeter.

Pulstar Electro-Fence is a high-security product which has been tried and tested for Military use so you can be assured it will give you the ultimate perimeter protection while being cost effective.
