Incorrectly installed or faulty Electric Fences can be dangerous.
It is now a requirement to provide a Valid Electric Fence Certificate when selling your home. Electric Fences have grown in popularity as an effective security measure. Electric Fence installations are designed to deter potential intruders by generating a non lethal electric current. Electric Fences need to be installed in a manner, and properly maintained so as not to pose a danger to yourself or others. An Electric Fence Certificate is valid for two years as long as it has not been worked on or amended during this period.
