Purpose of a dropper:

- Keeping distance between wires fixed
- Should not be stiff – need to absorb impact

Our droppers:

  • Are made out of High density Polyethylene (HDPE)
  • Are superior in quality
  • Are SABS tested.
  • Breaking strength of an average of 2.5 KN (SABS nr. 1173 & 971 using method nr. 25 on 22/7/2009)
  • Have excellent anti erosive properties
  • Have prominent ridges
  • Are reliable
  • Are affordable
  • Are weather resistant
  • Are durable
  • Need no paint
  • Have low Maintenance
  • Don't snap as hollow (semi solid) droppers do
  • Are fire resistand
  • We make the droppers in any length required
  • Are suitable for electric fencing
  • Won't be sold for scrap metal
  • Have no electrical drain

 

Features of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

  • Strong, but flexable
  • High resistance against impact
  • Durable
  • Doesn’t absorb water and water doesn’t cling to it (ideal for electric fences)
  • Can be welded
  • Light in weight
  • “flashpoint” (melting point without flame) is 250°C
  • The heat direct in front of a veld fire is ±200°C and therefore the dropper won’t easily melt.
  

Important notes:

  • Remember fire breaks must be reasonable clean
  • Fires don’t only destroy grazing land but also burn galvanizing of existing strains.
  • Use 2mm binding wire in double configuration to bind these plastic droppers to the steel strains for big animals e.g. kudu, eland, etc
  • According to law fire breaks need to be 3m wide with no burning material in between
