Calculate Wires

Our range of Containment Systems allow you to choose the system best suited to your property size. However, it is important to note that most of our containment systems comes with 100 metres of thicker gauge wire, unless stated otherwise.

To assist you further, we have created the below table to help calculate if and how many additional boundary kits you may require to ensure that you have enough wire to do the desired area. The DMT Boundary Kit includes 100 metres of 1.5mm gauge wire and 25 flags, this kit is suitable for use with our range of invisible dog fences and invisible cat fences. You will need to add extra boundary kits (wire, training flags and joiners) if the area you need to cover exceeds the amount of wire that comes with your kit.  You may also need to add extra wire if you move to a larger block any time in the future.

The table below provides a guide as to how much wire you will need:

Note: The distance from the transmitter out to the boundary fence will also play a part in determining the overall wire required. If you wish to also enclose gardens, chook pens, swimming pool to your overall layout plan, you may require extra wire.
