Electric Fencing
One or two strands of 2.5 mm high tensile wire shall be used The top wire shall be 1.1 m above ground level, and where a second line wire is installed, this shall be at 600mm above ground level

Post Requirements
Strainer posts shall be, at least, 2100 mm long and a minimum of 175 mm diameter and shall be driven at least 900 mm into the ground Strainers shall be provided at the beginning and end of every length of fencing, at gaps or openings, at every change of direction where the angle is greater than 30 and to accommodate any significant change in gradient

Method Statement
Where long runs of fencing are to be erected, the maximum distance between strainer posts shall not exceed 150 m In soft ground, the strainer length may have to be increased to provide the necessary stability. H-frames or straining frames may be used in place of straining posts were ground conditions prevent strainer posts being properly placed Intermediate posts shall be, at least, 1800 mm long and a minimum of 100 mm diameter and shall be driven at least 500 mm into the ground.
