Peace of Mind

palisade securityWith crime escalating daily in South Africa, we do need extra security, unlike our European counterparts in other parts of the world.

Palisade is a very good option as it offers no place to hide if the area on both sides of the fence is kept free of any obstruction like trees or shrubs that would offer a hiding place to would be intruders.

A good idea for palisade is to have a concrete apron or base at the base of the palisade fence to prevent the possibility of someone digging underneath to gain access.

You also have the option to have palisade fencing fitted on top of a concrete or brick wall.
If you do have shrubs, hedges or trees close to the fence to give yourself privacy, always remember that you are also giving privacy to anyone who has entered your property illegally.

If security is your priority, then choosing wisely is a real must.  At Country Wide Walling we have professional consultants who will gladly assist you with making the correct choice for your needs.

Perimeter Fencing for High-Security Protection

wall securityWith security our priority, and the first line of defence around our premises, boundary fence security is vitally important. 

Appropriate high-security fencing can act as an effective deterrent to would be criminal intruders.
In today’s continued criminal climate in South Africa, we need to be sure that we have done the best we can, to defend our properties and hard-earned goods.  We pay for whatever we have in our homes, so we need to make sure that we keep everything safe from free-loading shoppers with criminal intent.

With our perimeter fencing as our first line of defence, there are various options available to us, electric fencing, electronic surveillance, CCTV systems, razor wire, etc.  In most cases we need a combination of these options to give us relative peace of mind.

Boundary security is necessary for the following reasons:

1.      Deters some intruders from gaining access
2.      Is off-putting to some would-be intruders
3.    Detects determined intruders when they attempt to access your property or try to remove anything.
4.    Delays and aids in apprehending would-be intruders

Pitfalls to Avoid

There are a few common pitfalls we can avoid to ensure our safety. trees 

  • Always repair holes, as they provide easy access.  
  • Have no trees close to fencing as they can be used to climb over the fencing. 
  • Do not leave rubbish bins out on the pavement, as they provide aid in climbing over fencing.
  • Make sure you do regular checks to make sure that nobody is secretly digging a hole under your fencing, or that someone is chipping away at your walls, bit by bit, and make sure that trees are cut back to avoid easy access if you do have them close to walls or fencing. 

The best remedy for trees is to remove them and only plant at a safe distance from all boundary security.  Plant prickly plants like the fire thorn at the base of your walling or fence, they are not plants to mess with.

Should you notice any of these things, it is wise to get it all sorted out quickly so as not to compromise all your security.

Crime Prevention Boundary Protection

fire thornThere are many ways to make it difficult for criminals to access your property.   You need to make it as unattractive a prospect as possible.

Boundary fences need to be high and of good quality with a topping that will deter anyone from attempting to climb over.  

A good perimeter wall would be a low wall with palisades so that there is no place for an intruder to hide if they do get in.   Topping the palisades with spikes is a good idea and an extra deterrent.

Wall foundations need to be deep too, to prevent anyone digging their way in. If you need to allow for runoff water, pipes can be built into the bottom of the walls at intervals.

An excellent deterrent is to have a trellis on the top of the fence and a thorny plant growing over the trellis.   Nobody likes their hands cut to pieces, or the pain of the thorns digging in deep.  Prickly bushes and hedges around your garden can also act as a deterrent.

pyrancantha firethornTrellis won’t support weight, and besides being noisy when it breaks, it will also bring the thorny plant down on whoever is trying to climb over, and can cause some real bad damage to a would be criminal.

Pyrocanthus (aka fire thorn) is a good option, but takes a bit of time to grow properly.   A rambling rose is also good.  It is thorny but has the advantage of aesthetic appeal when blooming.

The only drawback to these plants is that they will need to be pruned to keep them looking good, but is still a small price to pay for security.

This is another idea to keep you safe and protect your property.

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.
