Are You Covered

electric fence extentionWith the release of crime statistics in our country, it is obvious that crime has escalated at an alarming rate this past year.

Many people are looking at improving their security in a bid to prevent becoming another crime statistic.

Whether you have concrete or prefab walling, or palisades, you are able to add an electric fence as a further deterrent to would be intruders, and an electric fence has now become a common sight in South Africa.

If you wish to extend the height of your walling or fencing, then adding an electric fence is a very good option, but always ensure that the correct fence is added and that the installation is correctly done.

cctv cameraElectric fences are used to detect, deter and delay an intruder from entering your property illegally, plus a high voltage shock should be enough to discourage anyone attempting to access your property uninvited.  It also allows your back-up security company to respond timeously.

Energizers supply the fence with power and come with batteries so that they operate even when there is a power outage.

The more security you have, the safer you will be.  It is also a good idea to have infrared sensors installed.

It is advisable to install an electric fence on a wall or fence that is not less than 1.5m high as this will prevent injury to animals or children.   The electric fence should also have at least 8 strands of electric wire to discourage any attempts to tamper with it.

Should you wish to install a new wall or fence or to extend an existing one, please feel free to contact us and discuss your requirements with one of our consultants, or request a free quotation today.

First Impressions Count

wall crumblingIn South Africa today, perimeter security is a major concern for homeowners, and if you are planning on selling your property then it is a very important point to keep in mind.

What is the first thing anyone sees when they approach your property?

Your boundary wall or fence.

First impressions count.   If your boundary wall is shabby, not properly maintained and is cracking or pealing, then it does not matter how well your house is maintained, the look of your boundary wall will be the impression indelibly printed in a potential buyer’s mind.

The impression will cause the potential buyer to believe that your house is not as well maintained as it appears to be.

It is best to repair or replace boundary walls before putting your property on the market.  That way you are assured of a much better price and an easier sale.

Your boundary wall or fence should always enhance and add to the aesthetic beauty of your property.  

Potential buyers will also be keeping their eye on the security value of the boundary wall or fence.  Your fencing or walling should not look distinctly inferior in any way to any of your neighbours.

This is when keeping up with the Joneses is an effective route to follow.  Security is important, so your walling or fencing should show that it is a priority for you too.  

It is always a good idea to go out of your property to take a really long hard look at your property to get the real street view of where your property stands in the security and aesthetic beauty of the area.

If all your neighbours have electric fencing and palisades and you do not, it will be immediately noticeable to potential buyers.  You do not want your property to stick out like a sore thumb.

Many property owners have chosen to raise their walls or fences by adding electric fencing or palisades to existing structures.  This enhances the security and is also aesthetically pleasing.

palisade on wallsAlways choose a quality product and a trustworthy team for all your walling needs.   Whether you wish to replace an existing wall or fence, or raise it to obtain more security, cutting corners can and will backfire on you when it comes to selling your property.

Your boundary wall or fence should always be something that you can be proud of and which will enhance the value of your property and add to its aesthetic beauty.

Razor Spikes

razor point spikesIf your boundary fence or wall is 1.8m in height, you are able to attach extra security extensions. The total height should not exceed 2m.

Three dimensional razor spikes are very popular as anti-climb protection, and also suitable to top gates.

There is a Razor Spike designed which provides greater strength, and serves as both a physical and psychological barrier to any would be intruder.

These spikes are manufactured from steel and are heavily ribbed during the manufacturing process. This ensures ultimate sharpness and strength.

razor spikes on gateThe spikes are 11cm high and consist of 2 (two) rows of spikes. The inner spike is a thinner and stiletto shaped ribbed spike which is capable of penetrating a foot or any body part coming into contact with it.

The outer spike is barbed and angled outwards overhanging the edge of the structure to which it is attached.

These spikes are virtually impossible to climb over, and are a huge security feature, and have the added advantage that they are maintenance free.

Spikes can be fitted under electric fences, to ensure the extra security and impenetrability we all seek, in order to keep our property and family safe.

razor spike warningSpikes can also be installed under roofs to make it impossible for anyone to climb onto the roof to gain access to your home or business.

As spikes are considered extremely dangerous, they should only be added to walls or fences at a minimum height of 2m. At no time must they be added where there is a possibility of injuring pedestrians.

The spikes must be completely visible and must comply with local laws and regulations in regard to height and positioning. There should also be clear warning signs to prevent any bad repercussions at any time, should an unsuspecting person get seriously injured.

Concrete Palisade Fencing for Security

stormWith our harsh climate and high crime rate in South Africa, Concrete Palisade Fencing has become the material of choice, as it can not only withstand harsh weather and wear and tear, it also has the benefit of being see-through, meaning that nobody can sneak up to your property unseen.

Another benefit is that Concrete Palisades have no scrap value, unlike metal, which can be stolen and sold as scrap.

Concrete Palisade fencing marks the boundaries of your property in a neat and aesthetically pleasing way, at the same time screening your home and garden, thus providing security and maintaining your privacy.

little kids running street 21063594We all know that small children and pets love to wander, and we need to keep them safe, and prevent them from wandering out of your yard into the streets, and into danger from traffic.

We would all love to have high, solid walls around our properties to ensure our privacy, but the drawback is that it also provides privacy to intruders, as, once they have found a way in, they cannot be seen from the outside by anyone passing by, or even security on patrol.

Because our products use integral colour, your palisade fence will stay looking beautiful for years to come. Permanent colour can be added during the manufacturing process, which means your palisade will remain beautiful for many years.

At Country Wide Walling we take pride in our workmanship, and endeavour to exceed our clients expectations.

Boundary Wall Elements

damaged by dampThere are many things we need to take into account when we decide to erect a boundary wall for security for our property and family. A well-built wall is a huge asset, and deterrent to would be criminals, and is our first line of defence.

The most important elements to consider when installing a new boundary wall are:

1. The Design
2. Foundations
3. Whether it is also a retaining wall
4. Adequate expansion joints
5. Drainage
6. Damp

As boundary walls are normally “free-standing”, and not part of a structure, e.g. a house, where the connected walls are self-bracing, the boundary walls are normally built without damp proof, to improve the bond between the foundation and the free-standing wall.

This often results in rising damp seen low down on plastered and painted boundary walls.

above soil levelIf you use harder, high density bricks for the lower courses, up to 150 mm above ground level, and keep the plaster above the soil, it will help prevent the damp from easily penetrating.

The water absorption of the bricks should not be more than 7%.

Concrete Palisade is a very good option to use where excess water is a problem, as it does not rust as steel would, and would also allow the water through and not keep it building up as a solid wall would do.

Keeping the plaster above the soil level will prevent it acting as a wick and drawing the water up into the upper wall. A good, solid foundation, at least 1.5 meters deep will add to the strength and stability of your wall.
