How to use electrical and hot wire with concrete fence posts.

Concrete fence posts are suitable to use with standard electrical and hot wire fence systems.

Use the concrete post just like you would use a timber post.

We recommend inserting a plastic conduit into the pre-drilled holes even though concrete is not a conductor.

Insert conduit into the 30mm holes, or offset the hot wire alongside the post for other systems.

We recommend the conduit sit 3-5mm over the edge of the hole in the post.
