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 or can provide an additional layer of security within the 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 and 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
In principle, 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 this electric fence technology is often referred to as ‘non-lethal’ electric fence security. All controllers are manufactured 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:

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 to provide 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
Electro-Fence™ is also becoming established as the electric fence product of choice for many prisons and police compounds. The special case study below provides an insight into this.
