Plastic Droppers

Plastic Droppers for Security Fencing for Sale

At The International Group of Companies we stock a wide range of top quality plastic droppers. These form part of our new addition to our catalogue; moulded plastics. These particular items are used on fences and are manufactured expertly by our team from LDPE which is Low Density Polyethylene. Each of these units is available in a standard size which ranges from 1.2m to 3m. Each has an internal diameter of 20mm to 25mm which is ideal for the applications for which they are intended.

The main purpose of these items is to ensure that the wires of an electric fence are kept at a fixed distance apart from each other. While they are designed to be sturdy and durable, they also need to be flexible enough to absorb the movement caused by potential impacts which can occur if there are game or pets present in the enclosed area.

There are many reasons why people are moving away investing in traditional steel units of this kind and resorting to plastic versions. For starters, steel units are often stolen where as their polyethylene counterparts are not. The material they are manufactured from of course does not rust and most are UV resistant which means that they will not become brittle or susceptible to the damaging rays of the sun. You will find that insects will also not be able to cause as much damage with these particular units. Overall, the versions that we manufacture at The International Group of Companies will be a long term investment that you will not regret.

If you are worried about potential veld fires damaging the units then fear not. It has been proven that it will take quite an extreme heat to destroy these particular items. These droppers are not easily damaged by heat and the market generally offers the following information on what temperatures can do to the unit:

  • 180 Degrees Celsius the unit will deform.
  • 220 Degrees Celsius the unit will melt.
  • 300 Degrees Celsius the unit will burn.


These are just basic guidelines and it is best to check with the professionals in the field providing the item just what sort of conditions it is able to withstand. Each product will of course vary in strength and quality from supplier to supplier. Our sales consultants will happily assist you with choosing the best quality product for you use. It is always recommended to seek out the guidance and advice of the professionals in the field if you want to ensure that you are being provided with an item or solution that simply will not let you down.  

Another great benefit to using these on your electric fence is that they will not drain the power as steel units often do. Their extreme durability and weather resistance makes them a great investment that will save you on time, money and effort in the long run.
