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):
