Both our Maxi Braid lines are approx. ¼ inch in diameter. This larger diameter is achieved by braiding material over a core. The outer material is braided with the conductive strands of stainless steel. These products are intended to use on their own or in combination with "CAMEO" fencing for a permanent fence. 3 or 4 lines provide an excellent site line and electrified the deterrent to teach your animals to stay off the fence. Installed and used correctly this electric fencing offers a safe, good looking fence for horses and other livestock. Electric lines can be installed on your choice of posts. A great choice is the 2" round x 6 ft. pre-drilled vinyl post or Mule Posts.
