+ Do you accept credit card payments?
No! However we do accept cash payments/EFT and will also require deposit from you before the particular job will start.
+ Will my animals be electrocuted?
No, there is not a constant flow but pulsed flow of electricity through the wires and therefore no electrocution would take place.
+ Will it kill my child?
No, once again there is no constant electricity flow.
+ What sort of deterrent is the electric fence?
Yes, having a good quality Stinger Electric Fence installed to the correct specifications the criminal on the street is going to look at a more accessible property, rather than one having a good fence.
Electric Fencing is the fastest growing method of securing properties and not without good reason.
+ Can a criminal place something like a blanket or rubber matt on top of the fence to gain access?
Yes, they can. However 100% probability there will be either an Open Circuit (Wires Breaking under strain) or subsequently a Short Circuit (Live and Earth wires toughing) alarm condition reported via the Stinger Energizer.
+ Is it possible to connect the fence to my rapid response company?
Yes, it is possible and very advisable.
+ What would happen if the wires were cut?
In the event that wires are cut the Stinger Energizer will report an Open circuit alarm condition. The possibility of keeping the cut wires away from other wires are very slim as the wires are tensioned up to 25 kg tension weight. Short circuit alarm condition would be reported.
+ What sort of voltage is in the fence?
What a Shock uses Stinger Energizers which is 8 joules with a maximum voltage of 10000 volts as per Government Regulations.
+ Will my monthly electricity account increase dramatically?
No, an energizer uses very little power, running cost per Energizer is less than R10 per month.
Stinger Energizers use 220 v AC to drive the 12 v DC power supply, which only keeps the 7 amp Battery charged.
+ What happens should there be a power failure?
In the likely event of a power failure, Stinger Energizers has a minimum of 5 hours battery back up after which the enclosed 7 amp Battery will stop to produce any power and it is advisable to restore 220 volt power via the power supply system as soon as possible.
+ Does tree branches have an effect on the fence?
YES, keep vegetation away from the fence and unnecessary false alarms would be eliminated.
+ Is there a governing body that regulates Electric Fence installers?
This function would hopefully soon be taken up by Psira as this body is long overdue. There is however clear guidelines and all regulations in the South African Standard on Electric fencing (SANS10222-3:2006) should be adhered to.
+ Is an electrified fence safe?
Yes. A correctly installed fence is save and at the same time effective. The high voltage current is non-lethal because the electrical current is not continuous, it consists of 1 second interval pulses. Touching it, will result in a pulsed high voltage shock.
+ What about lighting strikes?
Unfortunately there is nothing really you can do about lighting. What a Shock installs lighting diverters with all Stinger Energizers which offers some protection for the energizer. We also utilizes copper earth spikes on all installations and surge protection on the 220 v AC input.
+ Can I install electric fencing on top of any type of boundary?
Electric fencing can be installed on just about any type of boundary and or perimeter fencing.
+ Are all the wires on the fence live? Is it possible to touch one or two wires and not to get shock at all?
Not all wires on an electrical fence are live. There are earth wires in between the live wires, if an intruder attempts to lift the wires i.e. live shorting against earth. You need earth wires to ensure the shock capability of the system, the better a fence is earthed the better the shock intensity of the fence. Unearthed fences are useless.
+ What are the legal issues regarding an electric fence installation
All existing fence installations have to comply with legislation as per Government Gazzette No: 23648 dated 26 July 2002
+ What about repairs and maintenance on existing systems?
What a Shock does repairs on existing alarms, beams, gate and garage motors, electric fencing, cctv and other electronic security devices.
We deliver a scheduled maintenance service to all customers wishing to ensure timely feedback and reports on the status of their various Security Equipment. As the equipment are working permanently it is important to service and maintain them accordingly.
+ Do i have to connect my Outdoor Beam System to my Alarm System, i heard that you get frequent false alarm?
That is correct, you do get more frequent false alarms but mostly during daytime when your system is armed and the traffic of birds increases, in turn that increases your changes to false alarms. That however could easily be remedied by having your alarm system work remotely with the capability of arming/disarming the inside partition and outside Beam partition separately. The other option is to run the Outside Beam System separately utilizing it as an EARLY WARNING SYSTEM only whereby you have Beams communicating to an HQ that is portable.
+ Do you also install infra red beams for outside use?
Yes we do, please contact us for further information.
+ On a new installation, do you think it would be better to have a full height electric fence or 2m palisade with electric fence on top?
It all comes down to the application, in most cases where the area is large we prefer to install full lengt systems and not only on top as palisades can be manipulated and access can be gained quite easy. On small household installations we place a wall top type fence onto the palisades to prevent access being gained from jumping over the palisades.
