Making Wise Security Decisions

razor wire palisade fenceHaving a perimeter wall or fence in South Africa is a great way to prevent crime in residential areas.

It is very wise to choose to install a concrete wall or fence as your first line of defence against criminals.

Concrete Palisade is a really good option, as criminals cannot easily hide behind the fence, and can be easily seen when they try to breach your property.

Concrete Palisade can be topped with Electric fencing or Razor Wire to give added protection, and making it so much less appealing to would be intruders. A good idea is to never grow shrubs or high plants at the front of the palisades as it gives criminals a place to hide in order to breach your property unseen.

Never plant trees close to your fencing, as criminals can easily use their overhanging branches to get over your boundary and onto your property. Have nothing close to the fencing, dustbins, drums, etc., that way you are not making it easy for potential criminals, and will be more difficult for them to intrude.

Crown of Thorns is, however, a good plant to use, should you wish to do so, as it has thorns nobody wishes to mess with. A rambling rose bush can also be used should you really want shrubbery, it has thorns but also gives you pretty roses.

Good advantages of Concrete Palisade include:

• Intruders cannot hide behind it
• Intruders cannot easily climb over
• It stays strong over time
• It withstands harsh weather conditions
• It will not rust and deteriorate
• It cannot be damaged by fires
• It is practically maintenance free
• It is much cheaper than for instance brick walls.

concrete apron foundationAs concrete is very heavy and has no scrap value, it has no appeal to thieves.

If you choose to have Concrete Palisade Fencing around your property, it is a good idea to have a concrete base laid to rule out the possibility of anyone gaining access by digging underneath the fencing.

A good alternative is to have the palisade fitted on top of a concrete or brick wall.

With all the options available to you, we, at Country Wide Walling, will gladly assist and advise you on what your best option for your property should be.

Laid Bricks or Precast – Which is Best?

Precast Concrete WallingWhich is the better option for a perimeter wall?

There are differences between the two that you need to consider when making your choice.  Laid Bricks, or Precast?

Traditional bricks walls are made of clay, and though sturdy, it has a tendency to crumble when pushed upon continuously.

Each brick must be laid individually, so takes a long time to build, and a lot of labour.

Bricks are also subject to moisture damage, and therefore not a really suitable option for retaining walls, especially in moist climates.

The upkeep on a brick wall can, over a period of time, be financially draining.

Precast walls, on the other hand, are far more durable, and resistant to mould, fire, termites, and other natural hazards.

Very little maintenance is needed to keep them looking aesthetically pleasing as well as strong and durable.

They are quick to put up, so therefore are the cost effective option.

powder cement colourThe concrete walls are also reinforced to last far longer without any maintenance needed for cracking or crumbling, and are a far less expensive choice in the long run.

The precast brick wall is manufactured using our custom moulds, and, combined with an exclusive colouring system, creates a superb finished wall for your property.

At Country Wide Walling, our consultants will gladly assist, and guide you in making the correct choice to give your home or business, not only security, but also the aesthetic appeal you desire.

Electric Fences for Shocking Crime

hole in fence

A good and very potent front-line deterrent to any potential intruder, is the obvious physical presence of electric fence security, with the bright yellow warning signs.

There are many advantages of electric fencing, e.g.  It will give the potential intruder a nasty shock, and also set off a siren, alerting you that somebody is trying to illegally access your property.   Electric fence security will successfully deny an intruder access to your property.  

electric fence palisadeHere in South Africa we pay a fortune to feel secure, by installing burglar alarms, razor wire, guard dogs, armed response, electric fencing, all due to the extremely high rate of crime in our country.  

Our family and property are our priorities, and we all do whatever is humanly possible to keep everyone and everything safe.  It is also a very good thing to combine a number of security options, as this is also very off-putting to criminals.   

Criminals like an easy target, as well as an easy getaway.  By combining e.g. palisade and electric fencing, we are making our property less inviting.  Palisade has no hiding places, and is not that easy to climb, and if we add razor wire and/or electric fencing to the top of the palisade, our property will lose it’s  appeal to would be intruders.  

Make sure that no matter what type of security you implement on your boundary fences, it is installed by a reputable company, and is checked regularly for any attempts at breaching it.  

We cannot stress enough that perimeter security is an important aspect of the safety of your family and property.
