This HoseGuard electric fencing will be efficient for a long time :
- Because you are using a quality tape.?
- Because you will install it with our accessories adapted.
Bi-Polar fence, how does it work?
The tape is electrified, similar to the well known farmers' 'hot wire' but in contrast with the
thin 'hot wire', the tape is large and visible by horses. The electric fence tape is powered
by a fence charger,which produces constant current pulses.
For the Bi-Polar fence tape you don't need a ground rod even with a sandy, snowy or rocky
soil (bad conductors) because we have put the two lines plus (+) and minus (-) on the
same tape and the fence will work whatever the ground conditions are!
The tape connected to the (+)
of the charger is the positive line.
The ground rod connected to the (-)
of the charger and driven into
the humidity of the earth
is the negative line.
The top green edge connected
to the (+) of the charger is the
positive line. The bottom brown edge
connected directly to the (-)
of the charger is the negative line.
There is no need for a ground rod
and the humidity of the earth.
In both cases when the horse touches the tape he connects himself for a fraction of a second!
Thereafter when the fence is electrified, after that painful (but harmless) experience the
horse will remember and respect that barrier!
What is HorseGuard Bi-Polar tape made of?
10 stainless steel wires diam. 0.016 inch (0.40 mm), 30% thicker than the competitors, 29 totally
UV resistant polyethylene threads diam. 0.02 inch (0.50 mm), 2 stout bumpers diam. 0.032 inch
(0.80 mm). Both have the combination of wires interwoven into the top and bottom bumpers
at the tape edges : this combination has been added to provide cut protection and prevent
elongation, making it a stiffer tape (not flimsy like bad copies) increasing strength,
effectiveness and protecting against wear.

Designed to Reduce Wind Resistance
HorseGuard recommends to set the posts at a maximum of 16ft (5m) apart.
In windy areas the spacing of the posts can vary between 8ft (2.50m) up to 12ft (3.50m).
What Horseguard has done to counteract the strong winds problem and increase the
longevity of your fence since we invented the tape was:
Designed to Last
To drastically increase the thickness of the filaments (metal and polyethylene)
creating a very sturdy tape and a combination of open weave.
ALLOWING THE WIND TO PASS THROUGH THE WEAVING
