Thunderbird are specialists in manufacturing:
- - Portable and permanent electric fencing systems
- - A complete range of agricultural weighing systems and accessories
- - Remote controlled fence energisers
Energisers are used to control the flow of electricity through electric fences, from an external power source. When a grounded object (most likely an animal) touches the fence, the sensors in the energiser send electricity down the fence or the live wire.
Saving you time and money by locating faults in electric fences quickly and accurately. Faults can be caused by poor connections, excessive vegetation growth around the fence, short circuits, or broken fences. A wireless design means you can easily test all fences without an electric supply and with a battery life of up to 2 years, your fault locator from Direct Trades Supply will stand the test of time.
Insulators are to be installed on each post of an electric fence. This is what attaches the electric fence to the poles, but being made out of material that does not conduct electricity, the current is stopped at the insulator and isn’t transferred to the ground via the poles. Insulators come in ranges of molds and attachments, Direct Trades Supply will have the right product for your fence needs.
Standoffs & Outriggers
Standoffs and Outriggers are used to set the electric wires away from the fence poles. With configurations of single or double, you have the ability to set live wires on either side of a fence. These will extend the life of your fence poles by keeping the wire away from rubbing against the steel or wood.
Underground Cables & Connectors
Underground cables are used to carry electricity from one part of a fence to another safely. They will also transfer electricity from the energiser to the beginning of the fence. You may also hear these referred to as ‘undergate cable’. The Underground Cable stocked at DTS is double insulated to ensure no loss of electricity or power in the fence. The cables are made from a tough polyethylene to ensure it is abrasion resistant in the ground.
