Security is a Priority

spikesWith escalating crime, security is a high on our priority list.  Our first line of defence is our perimeter fencing.   We all want our family to be safe, and as we work hard for what we have, we do not want criminals just coming in and helping themselves to our belongings.

Putting up good, quality perimeter security fences gives a measure of security.   We need to bear in mind that there is no fence truly infallible.   Fences are erected for our safety and to keep intruders out, but given enough time and the right tools, even Fort Knox can be breached.

fence being cutHaving a good security fence will slow down criminals long enough for security companies or police to arrive and take action.  That is why you need to install the best possible fence to deter criminals.  A criminal wants a fence that is easy to scale or access as they also need to make a quick getaway, and if your security fence is of high quality with extras like spikes, rollers or other climb deterrents, it makes it less attractive to criminals.  

Fencing, like chain link are not a security option, all it takes is a pair of wire cutters and a few minutes and they will be inside your property, and also have an easy way to escape.

There are so many different security fences available, as well as optional extras, like spikes, electric fencing, etc., that we need to have good advice on which would best suit our requirements.

Country Wide Walling are experts in security fencing and walling, so feel free to contact us to have one of our consultants come out to discuss your requirements and give you a free quotation.

Remember, safety is not only your priority, it is also ours.

Exterior Boundary Walls

steel insertsIt has become a part of our lives here in South Africa to make sure we have good boundary walls, not only for their aesthetic appeal, but as an added security feature.   As crime escalates at an alarming rate, we all need as much security protection for ourselves and our families as we can get.

Good quality boundary walls are a must, with added security.  Whether we have palisades or concrete walls, we need to plan carefully, before deciding which would be our best option.   Solid walls are great, and, very pleasing to the eye, and of course ensures we have privacy, but there is one drawback. 

We erect high solid walls to get privacy, but we are then giving criminals privacy too.  Once inside our property, they cannot be seen by anyone from the streets, or by neighbours, and can move about without fear of detection.

A good option, therefore is facebrick walls with steel inserts.   We would still get a mode of privacy, but the steel inserts will ensure that, should an intruder be on our property, they would not be able to move around without detection.

wall with steel insertsFor over 25 years, Country Wide Walling has been in the walling industry, and through experience have developed an exceptionally strong, quality precast facebrick wall, which is manufactured by them, and then good, quality steel inserts added, to give their clients an exceptionally high quality product, which outlasts any of their competitors.

Their workmanship is of the highest quality possible, and the end result is an aesthetically beautiful product, with privacy and security, which will last for many years.

The walls surrounding our property demarcate the boundary of our property, and if it is of high quality and workmanship adds an aesthetic quality which enhances the value of our property.  Usually people first consider security, then privacy when deciding on enclosing their property.   The facebrick wall with steel inserts meets all requirements, from privacy to security to aesthetic appeal.

Planning Boundary Walls and Fences

survey pegIt is important to check the boundary walls and fences policy with your local authority, before you erect your boundary wall, or you might be saddled with penalties and fines, and the possibility of having to tear down your boundary fences.  It is ultimately up to them what you can, and cannot do, as regards your boundary walls.

Boundary walls are one of the most controversial topics facing home owners.  Two very important issues are the position of boundary walls, and the ownership of them. All properties are surveyed and pegged when land is zoned for residential use. 

Generally the pegs are removed as soon as the land is built on, that is why it is important to ensure that the boundary walls and fences are correctly positioned from the start. It may be necessary to get a land surveyor to resurvey the property, if there is a dispute between neighbours over the positioning of the boundary fences.  The land surveyor will resurvey the property according to the official diagram that is lodged with the Surveyor General in Pretoria.

surveyorcheckingwallsYou are allowed to erect a boundary fence on your own property.  This does not only apply to the fence or wall, but also to the foundations which would be wider and longer than the wall itself.   Then the structure will belong to you. On the other hand, if you and your neighbour share the cost, then the structure should be erected so that it is on both properties.

If the wall belongs to you only, the law will protect the structure, should your neighbour decide to dig down next to your wall on their side, especially if it is likely to wash away the earth when there are heavy rains.  If the neighbour wants to do some sort of excavation next to your fence or wall, they would have to erect a retaining wall which would require plans being submitted for approval.

It is always best to check with your local authority as regards the height of the walls to avoid later problems.  Generally walls are allowed up to 1.8m without a plan having to be submitted, as it would be regarded as minor building work.  Some authorities do allow up to 2.1m, but it is better to be safe than sorry, so take the time to find out exactly what it allowed, as regards height and type of walling, and security features allowed.

Stable Boundary Walls

cracksMany boundary walls are poorly built by people trying to cut costs, and not having the necessary experience and know-how skills base to build it safely.

A perimeter wall is built as a security feature to protect your family, and trying to cut costs and doing a poor job of constructing the wall can lead to it collapsing and seriously injuring a child or animal.   

If a wall falls on a child it can cost a lot of money for hospitalization and doctor’s fees.  This money would have been better invested in getting your security walls safely and professionally installed by Country Wide Walling.

Bad designs, poor foundations and also the lack of expansion joints and support pillars usually result in boundary walls developing dangerous cracks and/or collapsing.  

good boundary wallsWalls leaning over, or splitting apart or cracks in plaster, are all indications of a poorly constructed wall, and unfortunately, usually only become noticeable a long time after the builder has left the site.  You, as the homeowner believe you received a bargain priced wall, but the old saying “you get what you pay for” applies, and could lead to a loss of a lot more money should a child be badly injured with broken bones and a lengthy hospital stay.

If you are one of these homeowners, you need to keep a careful eye on the wall, and if any cracks appear, or the wall starts leaning over, it is best to pay urgent attention to the problem immediately, before anything serious happens.

The best solution is to tear the wall down, and have it professionally set up in order to not only provide security, but to avoid serious injury to a child, family member, or an animal.  In the end, this would be the safest, and most cost effective solution to a dodgy wall.

Always bear in mind that sound engineering principles also need to be applied to the design, manufacture and installation of boundary security walls.

Cleaning Precast Retaining Walls

addingcolourOur retaining precast walls can have permanent colour added to the wet concrete during the manufacturing process, which will ensure that future painting will be unnecessary.   You do have the option to have the fences stained or painted at a later date as a design feature.

If your fence is looking dirty or drab, you can clean the fence to make it look new again.   Over time dust and dirt can build up on the fences, and will need to be cleaned.

Even though precast retaining walls are made to withstand the elements, it does not mean that over time they will not begin to show wear, especially if not sealed properly.   Mould and mildew can grow over time, as unsealed walls absorb moisture.

PowerWashingA good foam cleaner can be applied to the walls and left to dig deep into the surface.   A power washer will do a really good job of cleaning the wall.   We recommend a sealer is applied once the wall is properly dry to prevent any further moisture stains on the walls.   

Our walls are sealed as part of the manufacturing process to keep them looking good for many years, but scratches and chips can cause moisture to seep in.

We recommend repair, or replacement of any sections damaged, as this will prevent deterioration of the walls.  Sealing the walls properly is a high priority to extend the life of the walls.

As our walls interlock, we can replace any damaged sections and ensure you have the best looking walls for many years.
