Is there a risk that during some months part of your electric fence will be under water or that, for example, the lower wires will be under water? Gallagher offers a simple solution to this problem with the "Flooding resistor".
The flooding resistor ensures that the bottom wire is deactivated while the rest of the fence continues to function. It is very simple and effective. It has a resistance of 56000hm. And it's ideal for use when there is a risk that part of the fence may sometimes be under water.
We recommend that you let a Gallagher specialist install this fence.
A passage should be easy to close, while also properly conducting the current. Even when the passage is open, the fence should remain live on both sides of the passage. It is therefore important that you guide the current underground with a ground cable. The choice of ground cable depends on the energizer you use. Look at the table below to decide which ground cable is most suitable for your system.
Gallagher offers many different gates. Which passage you decide to use is a personal choice. However, we recommend the multi-wire passage set, because it’s extremely easy to use and inexpensive.

The SMS Fence Alarm is a unique plug and play security system for your fence. In comparison with the existing systems, this product is a real breakthrough. It warns you with a text message if there is insufficient voltage (e.g. due to plant growth) or when the fence is interrupted (e.g. when a gate is opened). You can divide your fence into two zones for accurate problem detection. It works for a whole season on three standard batteries (not supplied).
The fence does not have to be installed close to the energizer for the following reasons:
1. Risk of theft;
2. Certainty that there is sufficient tension at the end of the fence;
3. Works autonomously. Does not have to be connected to the energizer's battery (100% self-sufficiency);
4. It will alert you immediately in the case of theft of the energizer.
