Electro-Fence™ – High Security Electric Fence System
Electro-Fence™ (specialised non-lethal electric security fence system) is a powerful perimeter intruder detection system (PIDS) which can be attached to an existing perimeter fence or wall. In addition, it can provide an extra layer of security within a site’s perimeter as a free standing electric fence. The obvious physical presence of the electric fence with its bright yellow warning signs are visually off-putting to any potential intruder. Together they present a potent front-line deterrent.
Electro-Fence™ System Key Features:
- Visual & physical intruder deterrent
- Shock, voltage & short circuit monitoring
- Cut & climb monitoring
- Controller continuous monitoring
- Interfaces with standard security equipment
How the electric fence works
Basically, a controller continuously monitors the electric fence and generates an alarm when pre-programmed conditions are met. Electro-Fence™ controllers have an impeccable safety record. The high voltage pulse is less than one thousandth of a second in duration. Hence why we also refer to this electric fence technology as ‘non-lethal’ electric fence security. We manufacture all controllers to exceed European standards: BS EN 60335-2-76.
Quality of the components
As manufacturers of our own electric security fence technology we aim for the highest standards of manufacture and design. Component over-rating plays a key part in our approach to providing security system quality. To understand this more fully, here is more detailed information on the core components of our electric security fence:

Electric Fence Insulators
We also offer an Insulators Installation Guide with step by step photographs.
Electric Security Fence Applications
Our electric security fence system has been installed throughout the world. It provides effective perimeter protection and site security across a broad spectrum of applications:
- military site security (eg. Royal Air Force)
- industrial sites (eg. Carlsberg-Tetley)
- power stations (eg. BNFL)
- construction site security (eg. British MOD)
- reservoir protection (eg. Kielder Dam)
Electric Security Fence Case Studies
We have published a variety of case studies to date which highlight the effectiveness of our security systems. In the case of Electro-Fence™ we have focused on high security applications such as prison perimeters and police compounds. Here is a good example which demonstrates why prisons install the system: Prison electric fence installation for a US State Department Corrections Prison.
In our News section we sometimes carry Special Features on our security products. An example which features Electro-Fence™ is this article about an electric fence installation at a British military base. The fact that it is a British Government approved system was an important factor. A member of our APS approved installer network carried out the installation.
