Many people such as farmers and rural homeowners buy fences from the local farm supply store in their area. There are many different types of fences that can be used for many different reasons. For example, farmers use fences to protect their crops and livestock from intruders and predators, homeowners use fences to separate their property from their neighbors. People with small children or pets use fences to keep them from straying off the property and onto the road where they could be hit by a car. Many businesses and commercial establishments use electric fences as a security measure to protect their buildings and properties from break ins and damage. For example, a warehouse that stores electronics might use an electric fence for security against theft.
Electric fences also have an electric fence insulator to protect people and animals from shock or possible electrocution should they bump into it. Among the different types of electric fences is the portable electric fence. This type of fence can be installed in a few minutes and be moved from place to place. Portable fences are used when protection is needed temporarily such as a mobile business to protect merchandise from theft. For areas where there is no electricity a battery electric fence can be used to secure an area. An example would be a trailer or mobile home that doesn’t have outside electrical outlets. Fences can be used in any area and for any reason and come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes for any use.
