The first line of defence in keeping your family and home safe and secure in the perimeter fence.
Take special care and install CCTV cameras to monitor your driveway and perimeter fence.
Installing an electric fence is a very good option, but care should be taken to ensure it is not easily penetrated.
The fence bracket must be at least an eight-strand square tubing. Flat and round bar fences are easily breached, whether they be 5,6,7, or 9-string.
Care should be taken that the fence is properly installed with no loose strings, as intruders can easily lift the bottom strands of the fence and slip through.
Make sure you install a strong wall to keep criminals out.
With the load shedding we have here in South Africa, it is a good idea to install batteries to protect against the load shedding.
Always keep the fences on, even when the alarm goes off repeatedly, as criminals can create a short in the fence and wait for you to switch it off.
South African laws require electric fences to be certified with an electric fence system certificate of compliance (EFC)
A good quality Concrete Palisade Fence with an electric fence topping is a very good option. The concrete has no resale value as does steel, so there is no benefit to anyone to try and steal some. The palisade prevents would-be intruders from having a place to hide and is therefore in itself off-putting to anyone who wants to access your property illegally.
The more defence layers you can add to your property the stronger your defence becomes.
Alarm beams together with cameras will make for good strong layers of protection and will make it more difficult for criminals to gain access to your property.
The safety of your property is your priority, and therefore you should go for the best and strongest security you possibly can.
