About Amazon Electric Fencing

Company History and Background

Amazon Electric Fencing Company was formed in March 2009 as a specialist company providing non lethal electric fence installations for perimeter protection. This product arose out of a need to provide a higher level of security in the local environment.

Thus far the only security devices and systems used in the country were equipped only to trigger a visual or audible signal in the event of an alarm or unauthorized entry. The effectiveness of this type of alarm is now questionable since it provides only a monitoring function and has no means of deterring an attempted entry.

Legal Aspects

Electric Fence have been widely used for more than 50 years in countries with the same legal system as Trinidad (viz. Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland and many other countries of the British Commonwealth). The legal aspects of electric fences have been exhaustively researched by our legal advisers (D. Hannays &Co) and have given us the legal green light for installation throughout the Caribbean.

System Operation

The effectiveness of non lethal electric fences have been proven in many countries and is thee only available perimeter protection system that provides an immediate deterrent (a non lethal electric shock) and a warning signal (can be used to trigger an alarm system, send a signal to a remote location, send an alarm over a network, be incorporated into a SCADA system) to a potential intruder.

The system can operate purely in the monitor mode ie., provide a warning of attempted unauthorized entry or exit or in fully energized mode ie., non lethal shock and warning signal.

The system delivers a high voltage (approximately 8,000 to 10,000volts of non lethal electricity) and low current (approximately 1 milliamp) electric shock upon contact. The intensity of the fence is approximately one fifth of the energy delivered by a cardiac defibrillator used for reviving the heart in cardiac emergency.

The system consists principally of an energizer, metal posts equipped with special insulators, several rows of braided stainless steel wire, grounding system, double insulated lead in wiring, power supply with back up battery and audible and visual alarms as required by the installation.
