Hot-Rail 5″ Flexible Rail
$364.00 – $682.00
Hot Rail® Electric HTP® 5″ Rail is an innovative fencing product that combines the patented Centaur® HTP® technology with electric fencing properties, significantly reducing installation time.
This attractive rail utilizes insulated brackets for easy installation.
By combining electric properties within the rail, Hot Rail® protects your horse without the need for a separate hot wire that can slice a horse like a knife.
Hot Rail® Electric HTP® 5″ rail withstands impact without risking injury to your horse. HTP® technology combines the pliability of polymer with the strength of high tensile, creating a rail that is safer, stronger and more flexible, helping reduce horse injuries on your farm.
- Withstands expansion rates due to temperature changes
- Each rail is installed in a continuous length allowing impact to be absorbed by the entire length of the fence
- Hot Rail® 5″ Rail is manufactured in Muscle Shoals, Alabama
- Fence life is 30+ years with a 30-year limited warranty
- Hot Rail® Electric HTP® 5″ rail is easily combined with other Centaur rail or strand fencing to fit your budget or design needs
What is the difference between mechanically bonded & molecularly bonded fence? Mechanical bonding means that the wire and polymer are joined during the manufacturing process. As the polymer is cooled, it shrinks tightly around the wires. This creates a natural link between wire and polymer, while allowing each to expand and contract in temperature changes without pulling and degrading the polymer. Because of this process, a mechanically bonded fence will last much longer than a molecularly bonded fence. A molecular bond occurs when a glue is used to fuse the wire and polymer together. When temperature changes occur between the molecularly bonded wire and polymer, the wire will pull and weaken or tear the polymer. Be sure to ask your manufacturer which process they use. CENTAUR HTP, CENFLEX, HOTRAIL, WHITELIGHTNING, AND POLYPLUS ARE ALL MECHANICAL BONDED. Don’t be fooled by other cheaper manufactures. You get what you pay for!
It’s a five-inch polymer “rail,” with three 12.5 gauge high tensile wires embedded in a tough HTP® Polymer coating. 4050lb Break strength 30 yr warranty ~ Don’t forget your two piece bracket -40F to +140F
