Spiral Insulator Speeds Fence Installation

BLAIRSVILLE, Pa. — Kencove Farm Fence Supplies is introducing its latest innovation, the Spiralator insulator, a twist-on insulator designed to save time for high-tensile fence installers.

“The amount of time the Spiralator saves us in any given day is huge,” said Tyler Wade, project foreman at Precision Inc. in Bozeman, Mont.

Unlike normal fin-tube insulators, which must be put on before tensioning the wire, the Spiralator is installed after the wire is tensioned, like a claw or pinlock insulator. It can be used on new or existing fence, and with a quick twist of the wrist, it snaps onto the wire.

The spiral design of the insulator allows for ease in rolling it onto the wire for quick installation, and its UV-stabilized, medium-density polyethylene will hold up for decades.
