With the release of crime statistics in our country, it is obvious that crime has escalated at an alarming rate this past year.
Many people are looking at improving their security in a bid to prevent becoming another crime statistic.
Whether you have concrete or prefab walling, or palisades, you are able to add an electric fence as a further deterrent to would be intruders, and an electric fence has now become a common sight in South Africa.
If you wish to extend the height of your walling or fencing, then adding an electric fence is a very good option, but always ensure that the correct fence is added and that the installation is correctly done.
Electric fences are used to detect, deter and delay an intruder from entering your property illegally, plus a high voltage shock should be enough to discourage anyone attempting to access your property uninvited. It also allows your back-up security company to respond timeously.
Energizers supply the fence with power and come with batteries so that they operate even when there is a power outage.
The more security you have, the safer you will be. It is also a good idea to have infrared sensors installed.
It is advisable to install an electric fence on a wall or fence that is not less than 1.5m high as this will prevent injury to animals or children. The electric fence should also have at least 8 strands of electric wire to discourage any attempts to tamper with it.
