Electric fence gateways

A gate is the point where you enter and exit your fence. Gates come in different forms and sizes and have to match your specific fence. It is important that a gate closes the fence correctly and the power is able to run through the entire fence. To create a gate where there is no voltage on the gate itself, it is imperative that you use a ground cable (dug in below the gate) to ensure the current can travel on beyond the gate. You place the cable below the gate and connect the cable to both sides of the gate to your fence. This way, your gate will be accessible for both human and animal and your entire fence will remain powered.

When choosing your gate, please keep in mind the below:

  • Type of animal
    Every animal needs a different type of fence, so when choosing a gate it is important to keep this in mind. For horses, we recommend a gate which is highly visible with multiple strands: for example the multi strand gate kit or the retractable auto reel with 15 meters of tape. For cattle, we would suggest a more basic gate with 1 or multiple strands (dependent on type of animal), such as the spring gate or a gate with elastic rope.
  • The type of conductor you are using in your fence
    We have different types of gates in our assortment with different types of conductors. Esthetically it would look the best when you choose a gate with the same conductor as your fence. If you have a tape fence, then choose the multi strand gate kit or the retractable auto reel with tape. If you use cord/rope in your fence, then you could use the retractable autoreel with cord or one of the rope gate sets.
  • The type of fencing, permanent or mobile
    For a permanent fence, you can use all gate kits that we have available. Additionally you can also use a standard gate or the electrified steel gate. The latter is a very safe and nice looking solution, which can be used with the conductor of your choice, so it will match the rest of the fence. For mobile fences you are better off choosing a spring gate or a rope gate set.
