All Round Security

Sliding gateWe all know that fencing your property is not only a good investment, it is also an excellent security asset and off-putting to uninvited visitors.

Your fencing is not complete without a very good access gate. Steel sliding gates are a really good investment as it completes the security of your home and property.

A great advantage too is the fact that you can open and close the gate remotely, and you do not have to leave your vehicle to open or close the gate, making yourself vulnerable to being attacked or hi-jacked when you get home or leave home.

You need to do regular checks to ensure the track the sliding gate runs on is clear of any kind of debris, as even a small stone can prevent the gate from closing, and will result in the gate opening, and leaving your property vulnerable to criminals entering.

Regular checks, especially after bad weather will prevent this happening, and the gate rail can be cleaned easily.

Steel is a really good choice and is strong, sturdy and long lasting.

Steel Sliding Gates are easy to maintain, and can be manufactured to a chosen pattern and can be painted to be pleasing and have great curb appeal.

If you have invested in a good quality fence or wall, it is advisable to round off your security with a sliding steel gate to ensure you have all round security for your home or business.

Sliding gates also take up a minimum of space as the slide to the side as opposed to swinging open and perhaps damaging plants or trees you have planted in the garden.

Please Fence Me In

WallandpalisadeThere are various reasons for installing a fence or wall around your property.

Security is a high priority, but privacy. and animal and child proofing have their place on the list.

One reason that is not often mentioned, or is overlooked, is the ability of a good, quality fence or wall to add distinctive character and aesthetic beauty to your property.

Before you make the final decision on which type of fence or wall would be best for your property, it is a good idea to take time and consider all the reasons you need a fence, then decide which option would be best suited to your property.

There are many options available, but prefab concrete is probably your best option, especially if security is your major concern.

We all know about the escalating crime in our country, and concrete walls make a very good barrier and using concrete palisade will ensure that you can see out, still have privacy, and that there are no hiding places for potential criminals.

To give a pleasing ambience to your prsolarledkightingoperty at night, lighting can be mounted in your fence post caps. This will serve as a welcome to guests, create a pleasing atmosphere outdoors when you are entertaining, and will also ensure that you can better see if anyone is lurking outside your property.

A good option would be LED or solar-powered lights.

Make sure to take a regular walk around your garden and check your walling or fencing to make sure that it is always in tip-top condition.

Concrete can be coloured during the manufacturing stage, so this will aid in keeping your fence or wall looking good for many years. If you have a painted wall or fence, there are many colours you can use to enable your wall or fence to blend into the surroundings, and will also be aesthetically pleasing, which will add value to your property.

High Hedges and Neighbours

neighboursWhen you plan your walling it is best to discuss it with the neighbours, so as to avoid annoying them so they go and report you.

If you are doing it together then you can carefully plan what to use and how best to set it up. You do not want to obstruct your view, or your neighbours, as it is extra security to be able to see through to each other’s property in case help is needed.

If you are using wall toppings, and decide on plants, you need to use something very thorny to prevent anyone accessing your property over the top.

The only drawback is when you need to prune the plants. Always wear adequate protection, including goggles, to prevent injuries to yourselves.

The last thing you want is a thorn in your eye.

bad bush1Plants can be added above fences in boxes, with trellis to climb over. That way, they won’t obstruct the view, but will make it extremely difficult for anyone to climb over without serious injury.

Hedges are a deterrent, but they also offer protection to criminals who have found a way to get into your property, as they can then hide from neighbours or passers by.

An English rambling rose is also a good plant to use, and has the benefit of beautiful, abundant fragrant roses. The rose thorns are vicious to say the least and very copious, making it impenetrable.

Nothing is absolutely guaranteed to keep anyone off your property, especially if they come prepared. But the hassle they will have will give you ample time to summon help.

Bottom line is, do everything in your power to keep your family and property safe, even if it does mean extra work to prune and train plants correctly.

Advantages of Precast Concrete Walls

PRE CAST COMPOUND WALL MOULD

When compared to site-cast concrete, precast does have a lot of advantages:

1.    Precast is concrete, manufactured in a controlled casting environment, making it easier to control the mix, placement and curing, then transported to wherever it will be erected.
2.    The quality can be controlled and monitored easier in a controlled casting environment.
3.    Bad weather is not a factor, as you can cast in any weather, and get perfect mixes and methods.
4.    Less labour is required.
5.    Once on site, precast can be installed immediately, as there is no waiting for it to gain strength.
6.    As you have the ability to tightly control the manufacturing process, you get an extremely durable concrete.
7.    Total construction time is less than site-cast concrete.
