Boundary Protection

electric fencing toppingAlthough boundary walls and fences are mainly erected for security purposes, to keep criminals from entering your property, if you have a good quality and professionally erected fence or wall, it will also give a pleasing aesthetic look to your property.

Aesthetically pleasing boundary walls or fences not only add to the value of your property, they also add to the character of the neighbourhood. You must always remember that boundary walls and fences that front onto public streets are highly visible, and therefore you need to make sure that it is not only a security feature, but is also aesthetically appealing.

shadow of person climbing fenceMany homeowners are tending to install extra security on top of boundary walls and fences, as the crime rate is high, and criminals need to be kept out.

Electric fencing, razor wire, barbed wire and spikes are all utilized for this purpose, and are very off-putting to would-be intruders.

Always check which of these are permitted in the area in which you live, as different areas have different rules.

Always keep the area close to the walls tree free, so as not to give anyone easy access to your property via an overhanging tree branch.

Make sure the foundations to your wall are deep so that nobody can dig under them, and do regular checks to see if anyone has tried tampering with your walls.

To avoid any unpleasantness, contact your local authority about what is permissible when you put up a boundary wall or fence.

Your property and family are important to you, so make the best decision of your life today, and contact us at Country Wide Walling, for more information, or a free quotation.

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.

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.

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.
