New! Provides easy access in/out of netting enclosures without the need to turn off the fence energizer. Same electrified mesh as 48" tall PoultryNet®.

Quickly installs at the ends of existing garden or poultry fences. Gate post locks into place via a handle and docking station. Stainless steel clips at each end of the gate provide electrical connections to the fence. Features drivable posts which are useful in dry, hard or rocky soils.

Benefits
Keeps in or stops: poultry, ground hogs, rabbits, raccoons, foxes, opossums, bears, dogs and skunks.

 

Drivable posts can be inserted into hard soils using a mallet or dead blow hammer.


Common Uses
Poultry runs or gardens where small predators and pests are a major concern.

 

Can be used with shorter (height) nets.


Specs
  • 48" tall installed.
  • Includes gate, posts, handle & docking station.
  • 4 ft, 8 ft and 20 ft length options.
  • 12 horizontal strands (11 conductive).
  • Horizontals are white and black (visible for humans and animals against all backgrounds) or green and black (for those who prefer to have the fence blend into the background or landscape).
  • Horizontal spacings from bottom to top are: 2", 2", 2", 2", 4", 4", 4", 6", 6", 8", 8".
  • Verticals are white plastic strings placed every 3".
  • 0.75" dia drivable posts are PVC with an 8" metal ground spike.
  • 20 ft gate contains a center post.

 


Tips
If the gate is to be used in the middle of a fence line and power needs to be carried across, use a PowerLink to carry the power over to the continuing section of fence.

 


Precautions
PoultryNet Gates are not effective with baby chicks that are small enough to crawl through the net openings and therefore are not deterred by the electric shock.

 

Electric fence is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. A common mistake is not electrifying it. Animals may escape or become entangled (and may die). On a % basis, entanglement is very rare, but it can and does occur. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in.

Netting must be moved when tall grass covers the lower “hot” strands. The alternative? Apply a strip of herbicide to kill vegetation.

Warning! Due to risk of fire, do NOT use continuous output energizerswith electric netting or electro-plastic conductors such as rope, twine or tape. Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. (Fi-Shock™ brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric netting.) All energizers sold on Premier’s website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.

Dry conditions and wintertime usage may reduce the effectiveness of electric netting. We do not recommend the use of electric netting during harsh winter conditions—ice and heavy snow can flatten netting and thereby damage it.

Dry or frozen ground may cause post spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.


Troubleshooting
If the voltage drops below 3000V on the net, you need to turn off the energizer and unhook the net from the energizer. Test the energizer by itself. If the voltage is 5000V or higher on the energizer, the problem is in the net. The most common problem is that the lowest “hot” strand has been caught around one of the metal spikes on the posts and is shorting it out. The net must be at least 2" away from anything metal (metal posts, existing fences, spikes on support posts).
