Kencove Fall/Winter Catalog 2019-2020

HORSE FENCE 56 After careful consideration and planning, start by installing end and corner posts They should be a minimum 5” diameter and set 3’ to 4’ in the ground These posts can be either concreted (allow concrete to cure before tensioning) or driven into the ground Round posts are stronger and less likely to warp than square posts Using 20”, 10”, 10”, 10” spacing from the ground up creates a 50” high fence Attaching insulators to the line posts is part science, part art After marking each post, but before permanently attaching insulators, step back and adjust out peaks or valleys. This will enhance the smooth flow of your rope fence Pull all strands tight and secure with a Rope Clamp (CWBT) Final tensioning can be done with an inline tensioner (SSDR) INSTALLING ROPE FENCE Install a low-impedance energizer To ensure continuity of the electric pulse, individual ropes must be connected Leftover rope can be used, or a Kencove Rope-to-Rope Electric Jumper (CRR) will ensure good continuity 1. INSTALL FENCE POSTS 4. ELECTRIFY THE FENCE 3. LINE POST INSULATORS The safety of your animals is dependent on electrification of this fence Be sure to use a low-impedance energizer Have the energizer working before animals are put into the pasture If possible, introduce the animals to the perimeter of their new home before turning them loose ANIMAL SAFETY Attach lag screws (ILCW) to end posts, and use Corner Collar™ Insulators (ICPW) on corner posts Attach and pay out one strand of rope (RO4) as a guide You can use this guide for placement of line posts, which are typically spaced 10’ to 15’ apart The number of strands and spacing you use depends on your livestock and conditions The most common rope fence Kencove sells is 4 strands The rope can be run as one continuous length or cut and spliced at every end 2. CORNER INSULATORS California residents see page 2 for Proposition 65 Warning
