COMPLIANCE

COMPLIANCE & SAFETY 

Electrical Machinery Regulations

Electrifyit electric fencing equipment and installations comply fully with the new requirements of the Electrical Machinery Regulations Act: SANS 10222-3 and SANS 60335-2-76.

Electrifyit is an accredited installer registered with the Department of Labour and SAEFIA (South African Electrified Fencing Installers Association). Our key staff have undergone the prescribed training required.

We issue a Certificate of Compliance with every new installation upon request.

Each  certificate is valid for 2 years. 


Certificate of Compliance 

Should you require a C.O.C. please give us a call and we will gladly assess your electric fence.

Property owners with their own energizers are advised that a Certificate of Compliance (COC)  is available on request to ensure that the electrified fencing system installed complies with new Government Regulations introduced on 1st December 2012. 

A Certificate of Compliance is mandatory when selling your property and is transferable,

provided the certificate is less than two years old.


Safety

Unlike the electric power in your home, the energiser powers the wires in “pulses”, on/off every  second and therefore is termed a “non-lethal” electric fence. When touched will give a really nasty shock but will not kill! 


Legal Requirements for electric fencing (SANS 60335-2-76 - South Africa)

Wall Height Minimum wall height of private property to be secured - 1.5 metres.

Brackets Upright brackets may be used without any height restriction.

Angled brackets Brackets can be angled at no more than 45 degrees out and are to be installed  on the inside of the boundary wall. 

Neighbours It is not permissable to angle brackets into a neighbour’s property without their  knowledge or consent. 

Hazard Electrified fences are to be installed and operated so that they cause no electrical hazard  or entanglement to persons or animals. 

Barbed wire or razor wire These shall not be electrified by an energiser.

We are SABS Compliant

Electrifyit uses SABS compliant energisers and stainless steel 316 marine grade wire for  our electrified fence installations, which all conform to strict legislation as specified in the Government Gazette. Electrifyit electrified fence installations conform to all other controlling 

legislations such as the minimum installation height permissible and warning sign requirements

pertaining to the erection of non-lethal electrified fencing.


Electrifyit groundworks & earthing for extra safety.

1.6m SABS approved A grade earth spikes will be driven into the ground at intervals of  approximately 30 meters. A minimum of 3 is regulatory as is Lighting Protection. All cabling between the fence and the energizer will be sleeved in 20mm PVC conduit piping.
