Design your tape fence project

Technical Step-by-Step Guide

    1/ TAPE (Calculation of Length Required)
    – Measure the length of fence to be electrified (perimeter + internal separators):
    – Determine the number of rows of tape desired:
    – Multiply total length by number of rows to calculate the total tape length required:

    2/ POSTS (Determination of Number and Type)
    – Count the number of Wooden, Metal and Fibreglass posts plus Trees to be connected.
    – Determine how many are straight in-line posts vs. tension posts (required for corners, curves gateposts and line ends), as the accessories are different:

    Total All Posts



    In-Line Posts



    Tension Posts





    – Provide the average distance between posts (min. 8ft – max 16ft.):
    (We recommend reducing spacing to as close as 8 ft. in very windy areas.)

    3/ GATES (Assessment of Number, Type and Locations to Install)
    HORSEGUARD TAPE GATE REQUIREMENTS

    – Determine how many gates are straight in-line versus corner locations
    – Number of inline HorseGuard tape gates to be built:
    – Number of corner HorseGuard tape gates to be built:




    EXISTING METAL OR WOODEN GATE REQUIREMENTS

    – Determine how many gates are straight in-line versus corner locations
    – Number of EXISTING in-line gates:
    – Number of EXISTING corner gates:
    – Size of EXISTING gates:




    4/ CABLES (Calculation of Cable Length)
    CABLE REQUIREMENTS

    We will calculate your total requirements based on your inputs above plus:
    – the distance from your charger to the fence (in feet):
