A wall top electric fence is one that is erected on top of another barrier such as a brick wall or precast cement slats. Wall top electric fence brackets are used to erect the fence. There are various types of brackets available. Your choice depends on the type of wall that you are going to be installing the electric fence
Types of Wall Top Electric Fence Brackets
Round bar brackets
Round bar brackets come in 5 and 6 wire variations and are suitable for prefab concrete walls.
Flat bar brackets
Flat bar wall brackets are also available in 5 and 6 wire variations and can be straight or angled. These types of brackets are suitable for brick walls. However, they are old-fashioned. In addition, they are not as strong as square tubing brackets so you may possibly need more frequent electric fence repairs
. So, in general, these days people usually go for square tubing brackets.
Angled flat bar
Square tubing brackets
Straight flat bar
Square tubing brackets come in 6,8, 10 or 12 wire variations and can be straight or angled. For new fences we highly recommend these brackets because they are strong and durable and they can accommodate more than 6 wires for improved security.
Straight square tubing
Other types of brackets include:
Angled square tubing
- Jurassic brackets
- Profile pole brackets
- T-pole brackets
- Square tube Jurassic t-pole brackets
Electric Fence Brackets
All the brackets have insulators or bobbins attached to them. This ensures that the electric fence wires
get supported by the brackets but do not touch either the bracket or other wires.
When you look at electric fence wall top brackets you also find that at regular intervals of 50 meters and at corners the brackets have stays attached to them.
This is required by law
and enables the wires to be tensioned without pulling the brackets out of the wall. After all, you want a strong and secure fence. The stays also have plastic sleeves fitted around them to insulate your wires so that they don’t touch the bracket and cause a fault or alarm condition on the wall.
