Styx Droppers/Battens

Lightweight, durable and easy to install

Styx easy battens and outriggers provide the farming community with durable fencing solutions for the 21st century. The easy batten system is ideal for new fences and a quick and easy way to replace old and damaged battens.


The battens are a cost-effective alternative to traditional wooden fencing products. They remove the need for labour intensive, back-breaking work.


With a simple push and click your battens are installed within the space of a few seconds. Designed for 2.50mm diameter wire only. Not suitable for barbed or No-8 wire. 

Lightweight, strong and made of a high-quality UV resistant plastic material that will not rot or splinter. No staples required, ready for hot wire use. 

We understand that farmers like to take good care of the environment and protect the planet, so these products are manufactured from a material that can be recycled at end of life.

These battens have a 5 year limited warranty. 

Electric Fence Offsets/Outriggers

Durable and easy to install

Styx easy outriggers are designed to attach to the Easy Batten without staples or additional fasteners.


Outriggers can be attached either side of the batten. They can also be screwed or stapled to wooden posts or attached to concrete posts with lacing wire. 

The outriggers are available in 3 sizes

175mm, 300mm and 400mm. 

The unique design stops 40mm tape spiralling in the wind. The 300mm and 400mm outriggers have additional wire locations along the length for pest control and additional security. 

No plastic sheaving that will wear through and conduct electricity like traditional pigtail outriggers. 

They are flexible and can spring back when hit by an animal, unlike metal that bends out of shape. 

These outriggers have a 5 year limited warranty.
