The Smart Fence is Gallagher's revolutionary new portable fencing system.
It is a four-wire, fully-portable, all-in-one fence system that can be quickly and easily erected and dismantled by people with no prior temporary fencing experience.
The origins of the Smart Fence can be traced back to the Swiss Alps. Gallagher’s Swiss team first had the idea of creating a multi-wire fence, similar to a pull-out clothesline, where all the wires unwind at once. Such a simple concept eventually turned into the Smart Fence product - an international success story set to redefine the concept of portable fencing.
The reason for its worldwide appeal? Unlike traditional temporary fencing which uses multiple reels and standards, the Smart Fence is easy to carry and store and very simple to put up. Once erected and connected to an energizer, it provides an extremely safe, effective barrier for use in a wide range of situations.

Testimonial: Aussie Council rounds up loose stock the Smart Fence way
The Gallagher Smart Fence is making containing and shifting loose livestock on public roads much quicker, easier and more cost-effective for the Yarra Ranges Council near Melbourne.
Council initially bought two set ups following a demonstration of the products by Gallagher Australia Territory Manager Dave Manning. Each set up has a Smart Fence and a B11 Energizer. A council spokesperson said their decision was based on three key factors: they were "... reasonable pricewise, very easy to use, and Gallagher has a very good name." The return on council's investment (ROI) has been immediate, leading them to considering buying five more of each product.
Using the Smart Fence and B11 Energizer, just one council staff member can now round up animals with minimal physical effort and setup time. Previously, council had used cumbersome, time-consuming and costly stock crates, several staff and sometimes a contractor as well for the job. The Smart Fence and B11 Energizer will be extremely useful in the future to deal with animals on the loose as a result of bush fires and the products will also be used in council's stock pound.
