Running a single electric wire along the top of new no-climb horse wire on t-posts, to prevent reaching over. 5" snap on insulators are fine on the t-posts, but my fence installers added heavy duty supports every 100ft, which consist of 3 pipe posts set 8’ apart - it’s too wide a span to just skip insulators like I could on my previous 2’ wide H-braces. What kind of insulator can be used/rigged for these posts, that will keep the electric wire far enough off the no-climb to prevent shorting? I’ve zip-tied some regular insulators temporarily, but would like a more permanent setup.
I’ve used the plastic donut type insulators on corner braces, but electric wire tension keeps the electric wire off the fence itself, unlike these straight away sections. The only pre-manufactured insulators I can find for pipe posts fit the small diameter pipes like you’d see on a corral panel, not your typical Texas oil pipe & rail type fencing.
