ELECTRICAL MACHINERY REGULATIONS

Voltage Electrified Fencing comply fully with the new requirements of the Electrical Machinery Regulations Act: SANS 10222-3 and SANS 60335-2-76. We are an accredited installer registered with the Department of Labour and SAEFIA (South African Electrified Fencing Installers Association).  Our key staff have undergone the prescribed training and are certified and we issue a Certificate of Compliance with every new installation. This is valid for 2 years.

ENERGISER

Electrified fencing is powered by an Energizer – a transformer that converts low voltage power into higher voltage which is normally set between 7,000 and 11,000 volts. VOLTAGE ELECTRIFIED FENCING uses the superior Nemtek range of Energisers which have both proved to be robust and extremely reliable, backed up with a 2 year guarantee.

SAFETY

Unlike the electric power in your home, the energiser powers the VOLTAGE live lines in “pulses”, on/off every second and therefore is termed a “non-lethal” electric fence. The VOLTAGE live lines when touched will give a really nasty shock but will not kill! The low amperage is measured in “joules”.

CERTIFICATE OF COMPLIANCE

Should you require a COC. please give us a call and we will gladly supply. Property owners with their own energizers are advised that a Certificate of Compliance (COC) is available on request to ensure that the electrified fencing system installed complies with new Government Regulations introduced on 1st December 2012. A Certificate of Compliance is mandatory when selling your property and is transferable, provided the certificate is less than two years old.

Electrified fencing was originally developed in New Zealand for the primary use of farm animal movement and containment. Later the Security Industry improved on this technology developing a multi-strand wiring system fitted on to insulators and powered by an energizer to create intermittent electronic pulses through the wires. When touched it can deliver a substantial and most uncomfortable shock delivering up to 10,000 volts and sending criminals well on their way. You can’t touch this!
