Floodways


Various designs of floodgates can be used. Below are two systems that are effective.

All floodgates should incorporate a flood/short isolator. This stops the main fence shorting out when water contacts the lower part of the fence.

Hanging wire of chain etc. should be 150mm - 200mm above the normal water level

Vegetation

Flood/short isolators can be used between the bottom and the above live wires. When green grass etc. touches the bottom wire, the above wires do not lose power.

NOTE: USE WIRE JOINT CLAMPS ON ALL WIRE JOINTS
