Wall Leaning

leaning wallThere are many reasons why a boundary wall starts to lean. It could be tree roots that grow and cause heave, thus putting pressure on the wall footings or foundations.

All retaining walls should incorporate weep holes to allow water pressure to be relieved and allows any water to seep through.

It is important to have regular checks on all your boundary and retaining walls to make sure that there is no damage or leaning occurring. A garden wall that collapses can cause serious injury or even death to an unsuspecting person or animal.

Should you find any damage it is very important to have it rectified immediately.

Make sure that the wall is thick enough for its height. The ratio of height and width various around the country and weather conditions and ground conditions.

Different materials will vary and you may have to introduce forms of reinforcements to improve the stability of your walls.

Footing foundationAll walls should have adequate footings, not just shallow trenches with some concrete slopped in it.

Avoid any shortcuts in the erection of your wall or fence, as it can cause serious injury to people or animals should the walls or fences fall.

As your walling or fencing is your first line of defence, you need to ensure that you get the best possible security for your family, property or business.

It is always a good idea to consult with a professional when erecting your boundary walls or fences, and to ensure that it is the best on offer.

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.

Mohave Pyracantha FirethornPlant thorny bushes around windows, which are aesthetically pleasing, they are also able to collect DNA from blood and skin. No criminal likes to leave such evidence around and would rather find a different target elsewhere. Even torn clothing left behind will be evidence.

There are many aesthetically pleasing plants and shrubs available with the ability to deter a would be criminal with their thorns which can rip and cut them leaving enough DNA as evidence. These are the best shrubs to plant around any place where a criminal will likely try to hide or break in, such as windows.

Firethorn is one such shrub and is a really good addition to your security. Although they have very pretty flowers, their thorns are a deadly deterrent to anyone trying to climb over them.

The safety of your property and family is your no 1 priority, and besides ensuring that you have the best possible fencing or walling available, plus cameras and security companies, you need as much security as possible to deter or slow down a would be criminal and ensure that your security company can arrive to help you in time.

More Anti-climb Security

crimesceneWith the crime escalating in South Africa, and the police’s inability to do anything about it, we need to be sure we have the best possible protection for our family and property.

Perimeter walls and fences are your first wall of defence, so you need to be sure to use methods that not only deter criminals, but discourage them from even attempting to enter your property.

Besides having good quality walling or fencing erected, there are, among others, fence or wall toppings to increase the security of our walls and fences.   Rola Spikes, which are regarded as probably the most effective fence topping as regards anti-climbing wall solutions, coupled with electric fencing as backup, are highly rated by security industry experts.  

Rola Spikes have proved to be the most effective crime deterrent solution over the past 15 years, and is therefore a great way to effectively protect your family and keep your property safe and crime free.

robber stuckCriminals love easy access, as they usually need to make a quick getaway, and if they cannot climb over easily are wary of even attempting to gain access. Of the many different spikes available, the Rola Spikes are manufactured from imported tough glass fibre-reinforced polyamide that has been UV stabilised, and are totally rust resistant.

The security spikes or stars are very sharp and rotate on 21mm galvanized steel round tubing.  Each star has 6 (six) spikes and they rotate individually when touched, which makes it virtually impossible for would-be intruders to grab onto and climb over perimeter walls, fences or gates.  With electric fences as backup, your security is of the highest possible standard.

An added bonus is the Rola Spikes are manufactured to withstand South Africa’s harsh weather conditions, and because they cannot be tampered with or bent, they make a wonderful addition to any perimeter fencing security.

The rotational spikes are very dangerous, but are neat and will not distract from the aesthetic appeal of your property, and will blend in well with the overall look of the property, while offering maximum security.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements, and/or to provide you with a free quotation.
