  1. Hi Naeem, I am sorry that you are having a problem with your electric fence but we do not offer a renovation/repair service. I suggest you get a local reputable company to check your system or get the original installers to fix it.

  2. My electrical fence is connected wrong
    And I have received a certificate

    Can some one plz assist me


  3. It’s not a solid structure, so it should be legal.

    My walls are about eye height and I live next to a public park. I often will be in the garden and notice peoples heads pop up and look into my garden. The wall has an electric fence already installed and I’m looking at ways to extend the wall higher. One option I’m considering is to just mount a privacy screen on the back of the electric fence poles by using 3M double grip Velcro tape so I can easily remove it for fence maintenance.
    Would it be be legal to mount a polyester type material on the rear (non wire side) of the fence brackets?
    I can foresee in strong wind conditions that the privacy screen might make contact with the fence wire but the screen wouldn’t be conductive since it is made of a plastic material.


    Good day – in terms of Point 5 & 6; where is is specifically indicated in a regulations that is is not allowed

  6. What if you install an electric fence to COC spec and well you cant write the ticket is this stil illegal fence?

  7. This is really dumb. The winds in the Cape will make these fences like sailboats and they will move around in the wind and BREAK.

    Who thinks up this crap?

  8. Dave: I agree that our tax money is not paying for our security, but a regulation is a regulation. It cannot be that we only cry out to regulation violations when it suites us. This fence would be more secure and preventative if it was installed legally, on top in any case. It’s circumventable like it is now.

  9. Dave, while many would agree with what you say about the lack of enforcement by authorities, your target is unfortunately misplaced. The municipal authority is the one responsible for compliance, not the SAPS.

  10. I know the location of this installation, the installation was fully compliant until the new road was built and sidewalks were raised by close to a meter. The complex is currently in process of raising the wall after which the electric fence will also be raised. Should they have removed it anyone would’ve been able to very easily climb over the wall.

  11. i see wires and insulators … I know its an electric fence. i have a problem with the factt that the SAPS are to useless to pevent crime, I pay their costs with my tax dollar, but still need private, expensive security before I feel safe. Lets not forget the need to pay for education and medica, both of which should be pad for by our tax dollar!

  12. Not electrical, but rather from structural point of view: It looks like the wall was originally designed as a lower wall, with specific pier intervals. Then the walls and piers have been extended vertically by about 600mm without additional lateral support. The piers look like it may comply in size, but for the new height, the spacing may be to large to comply. Looks like more than 5m from the pic.

    I do not see any earth spikes.

  14. Mainly people get fences installed by people that can not do the job,also not knowing specifications on fences or what energizers to use for aplication of fence. I experiance this on a regular basis on existing fences that the energizer is too weak,eart spikes lack and all safty is inadequate for both parties.

    Maybe the reason is because companies that do courses are too expensive for installers,or courses thet was supposed to be done by gov for R 150,00 never happened.

    On my instalations or fixing I use an accredited person to do my COC,for my safty and for the clients safty.

    In our country you go to a Builders Warehouse,and there are guys standing for painting ,building,plumbing etc,and people use them for jobs,after they were quoted by professional people,the same goes for garage doors,gate motors and even roller shutters.
