Electrical Machinery Regulations

Peri Secure 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. Peri Secure is an accredited installer registered with the Department of Labour and SAEFIA (South African Electrified Fencing Installers Association), with two accredited installers in our employ with Certificate Numbers EFSI 00062 and EFSI 00141. 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.


Electrified fencing is powered by an Energizer - a transformer that converts low voltage power into higher voltage which is normally set between 6,000 and 10,000 volts. Peri Secure uses a superior range of energisers which have proven to be robust and extremely reliable, backed up with a 2 YEAR GUARANTEE.


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)

We are SABS Compliant

Peri Secure 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. Peri Secure 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.

Peri Secure groundworks & earthing for extra safety

1.2m 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.
