What are the Benefits

Galvanized Palisade FenceYour home or business deserves the best possible protection in these times, and a perimeter wall or fence will always be the first line of defence.  All properties should now be protected from intruders, and if you have not already erected one, we highly recommend you look into it immediately.

There are benefits for any property in being securely fenced in, and these are in fact very important, especially in this day and age in South Africa where the crime rate is escalating daily.

Here are some benefits you need to be aware of:

•    Security
•    Safe Parking
•    Long lasting
•    Little or no maintenance

Having a good secure Perimeter fence or wall deters would-be intruders and prevents them from gaining access to your property.  With the correct security it detects and delays any intruders who are determined to attempt accessing your property, or for that matter, removing anything from it.

Good Footing foundationsWith the correct security features in place, it does go a long way in safeguarding your property and family.

You need to keep an eye on your perimeter walls or fences to ensure that they are not being tampered with in any way.  

A good foundation, is very important to prevent anyone trying to dig their way under your fence or wall to gain entry. 

Make sure that the foundation is deep and solid so as to be off-putting to anyone trying to dig their way in.

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.

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.

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.
