A properly built electric fence will increase privacy, provide security, improve your home’s curb appeal and offer protection against the elements. Proper financial planning will go a long way in ensuring the success of your project. Before work begins, you should have an idea of how much you are likely to spend. So what is the average cost of building a new electric fence?.

ELECTRIC FENCE INSTALLATION COST IN KENYA

The cost to build a fence varies widely from one project to another. On average, fence installation costs between KSH 800 and KSH 1200 per linear foot. Depending on the fencing materials used, most homeowners spend between KSH1,580 and KSH 3,418 on their fencing project.

FACTORS THAT AFFECT ELECTRIC FENCE INSTALLATION COST in kenya

Now that you know the average fence installation cost in kenya, you need to understand the different factors that affect these costs. This will help you make informed decisions both before and during your project. Below are a few.

  • FENCE DESIGN
  • Not all fences are the same. You may want to choose a fence design that complements the exterior of your property. However, the design you pick will have a direct impact on the installation cost. A more intricate design will help you boost curb appeal but will push up the cost of fence installation.
  • FENCE MATERIAL
  • When it comes to fence materials, you have a wide range of options to choose from. These include wood, metal, concrete, vinyl and PVC. The material you choose to use for your fence will have a significant impact on the cost of your project. The material grade can also be a variable for your overall cost.
  • OVERALL LENGTH
  • The length and height of your fence will determine the final fence installation cost. As such, you should think about these two factors when creating your budget. The longer and taller your fence is, the more the materials it will require and the more the time that will be spent on labor. This will, in turn, raise the cost of the project.
  • EXISTING LANDSCAPE
  • In case you have a sloped yard, special techniques may be required to solve the grading issues. Installation will also be trickier when contractors have to work around obstructions along the designated fence line. Such works will require more posts and panels, a factor that will add to the final cost of fence installation.
  • OTHER FEATURES
  • Depending on your needs, there are several features that you can choose to add to your fence. However, these features will affect the final cost of fence installation. For instance, incorporating lighting and a security system will increase the overall cost of your project.

Razor wire 8m 455mm


KSH 1,600

The razor is galvanized and does not lust. Barbed tape or razor wire is a mesh of metal strips with sharp edges whose purpose is to prevent passage by humans. The term "razor wire", through long usage, has generally been used to describe barbed tape products. Razor wire is much sharper than the standard barbed wire; it is named after its appearance but is not razor sharp. The points are very sharp and made to rip and snag clothing and flesh..


Razor wire just like electric fence can be installed on an existing perimeter fence(palisade), on top of the wall or as a stand alone.

    Warning signs



    KSH 270

    are electric fences constructed using specialized equipment and built for perimeter security as opposed to animal management. Security electric fences consist of wires that carry pulses of electric current to provide a non-lethal shock to deter potential intruders. Tampering with the fence also results in an alarm that is logged by the security electric fence energizer, and can also trigger a siren, strobe, or notifications to a control room or directly to the owner via email or phone.

    How we do the Concertina Razor Wire Installation

    We would like to take you through a step by step process of our concertina razor wire installation. Now, before we start with the installation there a couple of points that we take care of.

    • Step 1
    • Along the fence line arrange the coils. The deployment for each coil needs to be decided. This would depend on the spacing of the coil and the number of coils per roll.
    • Step 2
    • Place the coil on its side and then remove the wire ties and discard them.
    • Step 3
    • Hold the coil steadily and place it along the length of the fencing line. This is where we begin stretching.
    • Step 4
    • Use around six coils and allow them to spring free from the spool which is closest to the starting point. Then these are to be attached to the fence keeping centers of approximately 6 inches.
    • Step 5
    • Once the spool has been anchored, take three coils on the other end of the spool. Grasp all three firmly and spread these about one foot from the spool.
    • Step 6
    • Grasping all the three spools start stretching the wire. We maintain a distance from the fence as well as the concertina wire to avoid any kind of snags.
    • Step 7
    • During the pulling process, shake it gently so as to free any snags between any of the coils. It does happen that barb can get entangled. If it happens, then separate by grasping firmly and spreading them apart. But while we are correcting this, we make sure that there is no one else moving the materials.
    • Step 8
    • When we are pulling the concertina wire along the fence line, there should be another installer to assure the coil spacing consistency by pulling and lifting the materials.
    • Step 9
    • We hog ring the ribbon to the chain link fabric, once the concertina wire is in place. It is possible that we might have to twist the coil so that the ribbon is lined up with the chain link weave.

    Types of electric fencing in kenya



    1. Piggyback
    2. A Piggyback electric fence is mounted off the back of an existing wire or mesh fence, adding another level of security to the existing perimeter barrier. The piggyback profile is fastened to existing fence posts (e.g. pillars of a palisade fence) using rivets or screws. These are the most commonly used security electric fences.
    3. Wall top
    4. Wall-top electric fences attach to the top of an existing perimeter barrier such as a masonry wall. These are the second most common type of security electric fences.
    5. Stand alone
    6. Stand-alone electric fences act as the sole perimeter barrier. This type is normally found as one of many layers of perimeter security around high security establishments, meaning that in order touch it, an intruder would have had to previously bypass at least one physical barrier.
    7. Other uses
    8. Recent innovations include electrical fence monitoring for intruder detection as opposed to providing an electric shock to discourage entry. It can be used in addition to or as substitute for a host of other fence monitoring system Buried electric fence (also called "invisible fences" or "electronic fences") are sometimes used to contain dogs or livestock. The buried wire radiates a weak radio signal, which is detected by a collar worn by the animal. The collar emits a warning noise near the wire, but if this is ignored, produces a mild shock. Humans and other animals are unaware of the buried line. In a similar system, the collar uses signals to determine proximity to a predetermined "virtual fence" without a physical installation.
    Electric fence material list
    • Fence energizer
    • Electric fence energizers vary in their source of power and their power output. They fall into two groups battery-powered or mains powered. Solar powered systems are increasingly popular and involve the use of a battery-powered unit used in conjunction with a solar panel.The energizer has got an alarm output.When the fence has a shot the siren kit alarm system connected to the energizer sounder a warning which alerts the owner. Battery powered energizers Battery powered energizers range from very compact low power units designed for strip grazing or intermittent use, up to high powered 12 volt units designed for permanent installation on long runs of fence. Battery life will generally correspond to the output power of the energizer. High output energizers will require a car type battery in order to operate for a reasonable length of time between recharging. Electric energizer price in Kenya is determined by the type of energizer and the size of the firm to be fenced.

    • Most electric fences use 14 or 17 gauge wire depending on how long the fence is and what animal is being contained or repelled. Keep in mind that the lower the gauge of wire, the thicker the wire will be. Galvanized steel wire is flexible and easy to use. It is coated with Zinc to make it rust resistant. Ideal as a "weaving" wire, it is shiny, versatile, and available in a variety of gauges. It can be used for fencing purposes, strengthening an already existing fence or for electric fencing purposes as it is made from high carbon steel

    • How much does an electrified fence installation cost?
      An electric, above-ground fence will vary significantly in size and function. Both factors impact pricing. Generally, a homeowner can expect the cost of an electric fence to be between 90,000 and 20,000 for installation. This does not include the actual fencing materials or system used. Most of these fences will include a transmitter, receiver, and wires that transmit the energy. It is advised for the property owner to hire a professional rather than attempt the installation herself. Other estimates price an electric fence between 1000 to 2300 per 64 linear feet. This estimate includes the materials but not the cost of labor. Individuals will need to determine the fencing layout to calculate the actual cost. Other key factors include: Labor to plan and install the electric lines and concrete posts The cost of additional supplies including the fencing itself, poles, support systems and connectors Costs related to permits to meet city requirements Electrical panel upgrades or sourcing to meet the needs of the new system Ask your professional installer for a thorough quote to understand all the costs that go into the installation.
