An electric fence is a fence that an electric current can pass through, sending an electric
shock to any person or animal who comes in contact with it. An electric fence is not meant to
kill anyone but rather sends an uncomfortable shock to the person who confronts it.
There are Three Main Advantages of Electric Fences
- An intense shock is given when one comes in contact with it
- An alarm then goes off and notifies any neighbours or bystanders that there is
danger near, to stay on alert and seek help as soon as possible. Another benefit of the
alarm system is that there is 24/7 surveillance around the perimeter of your house whether
you are present or not.
- The visual appearance of having an electric fence creates a psychological barrier as you feel safer once it has been installed. When someone sees an electric fence they automatically avoid it as it is a hazard.
In conclusion, by installing an electric fence the chances of a criminal entering or escaping your premises are very low and it may even buy you some extra time to call for help which gives you an advantage in a life-threatening situation. In the times that we are living in, it is better to be safe than to be sorry. Having that extra protection is vital and it may save the lives of you and your loved ones.
