Are You Ready

Electric fence 3Erecting a good, sturdy fence or wall around your property is very important if you want to protect your property and family from unwelcome intruders.

Whether you already have a wall or fence, take the time to inspect it, especially from the street side so that you can get a different view of your property.

Criminals will stake out a property, sometimes for days before they attempt entering, and taking a look from their perspective will help you see whether your walling or fencing is adequate to protect your property and family.

If anyone has tried to tamper with your wall or fence, you need to fix it immediately and not leave it as it will be a weak spot in your security. Sometimes criminals try to dig under the walls or fencing, so ensure that the footing is deep enough to discourage them.

Keep curtains and blinds closed to avoid any window shopping being done. When criminals case your property they will be encouraged to find a way in if you have obvious valuables which they can see through open curtains or blinds.

Besides adding deterrents like spikes or razor wire to your walling or fencing, there are other methods to make it extremely unpleasant for anyone trying to break in.

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.

Razor Wire for Extra Security

razor wire palisade fenceAs we all know, fences have been used for protecting our property by increasing security and also providing some privacy.

There are many boundary wall options to secure our properties today, and it is good to look at all options before deciding what will work best for our needs.

Today we look at razor wire.   There are benefits to installing razor wire on top of walls for extra security.  

As razor wire is difficult to cut due to the steel used to design the wire being very hard, it makes it very difficult for anyone to cut the wire and enter your property.

Once you have installed the wire, it is virtually impossible for anyone to trespass, so it is a really goodrazor wire mesh fencing option, and will enhance the protection of your property and make it far more secure.  Anyone foolish enough to try and climb over the fence or cut it, will end up with very serious deep and painful cuts.

Razor wire can be installed on top of any fence to make it more secure.  One thing to remember is that the fence must be at least 1.8m whether a concrete fence, or palisade.  This is so that innocent people or animals are not caught up and injured by the wire.  

Razor wire is extremely robust and as it is galvanized it has great resistance to corrosion, so it will stay a long time without need of replacement.

It is a good idea to look at the pros and cons of adding razor wire to your boundary fence for added security.  There are different types of razor wire, so you need to know which type would best suite your needs.

Perimeter Security Fencing

security wallSecuring our properties with good security fencing is now a prerequisite in South Africa.   We are all aware of the high crime rate, and to keep our family and property safe is our number one priority.

High boundary walls seem to be the best option, but do you know, criminals love high walls.  They can scale the walls and enter your property, and once there they are invisible to neighbours and passers-by.  

Having a low wall with steel palisade fencing inserts is a good option, although it does limit your privacy if that is your main concern.  The low wall will prevent small children and animals from wandering out into the streets, and the palisade will give you a perfect few of all passers-by and anyone attempting to enter, and if you have devils fork razor wire or electric wiring on top, it will be a good deterrent.

A solid wall is not a deterrent to criminals, unless you have electric wiring or razor wire at the top to stop thempalisade climbing over.  There are many options for secure boundary fencing, and we need to explore each option before making a decision as to which fencing is best suited to our needs.   

It is always a good idea to make provision for 100mm drainage pipes every few metres to provide drainage for surplus groundwater that might other dam up behind the wall.  Drainage pipes are very good, especially in high rainfall areas.
