Crime Prevention Roller Barrier Wall Topping

child climbing fenceIf you are in need of an anti-climb barrier that is child proof, yet will protect your property from unwanted people climbing over your fence, then a “Roller Barrier” is the ideal solution.

The Roller Barrier System consists of unbreakable roller cups, which are flame retardant, threaded onto a central shaft, supported at intervals by fixing brackets. The cups are too large to get a grip and rotate freely and independently on the shaft, thus forming an unstable barrier which is extremely difficult to climb over.

The Roller Barrier works effectively at:

1.    Keeping unwanted people out of your property
2.    Is impossible to grasp to get a handhold to climb
3.    Spinning action makes sure it can’t be climbed over

Climb Prevention RollerCrime prevention Roller Barriers can be used extensively to protect your property, you can even have a double row if your wall height is a bit low.  You can install on walls, gates, to keep intruders from climbing onto your roof, and feel more secure.

Not only are they grip proof, should anyone try to climb over, the alarm will go off and alert you to a possible intrusion.  This is a safe way to keep children and pets inside your property, while keeping possible intruders outside.

It is a great way to secure areas you are not sure of, where a ladder or other means to climb over is possible, and ensures that your property is safe for your family’s protection.

What Are Anti-Climb Spikes?

rotating anti climb spikesAnti-climb spikes are widely used on top of walls and fencing and act as a deterrent to a would-be intruder.   They come in single spike, double spike and rotary razor.   There is also a blade spike often used on the top rails of palisade fencing.

Perimeter walls are the first line of defence when it comes to protecting our homes.  Fences should be at least 2.1m high, to deter a would-be intruder from trying to climb over your perimeter fencing.warning sign

Any product that is on top of your wall if it is high, becomes much more effective as it becomes virtually impossible to tamper with it.

Do not have wide pillars or any foothold that will help an intruder climb over.

An excellent product to fit to the top of the wall would be wall spikes as they are heavily ribbed for strength and extremely dangerous to climb over.  Make sure the anchors used to fit the razor spikes are very difficult to remove, they should expand inside the wall for added benefit.

Do not plant trees or bushes close to your perimeter, as they afford burglars an excellent hiding place.  Any bushes should be small and neatly trimmed to prevent anyone from hiding behind them.

A wall that has razor spikes is a good way to keep your family safe and secure.

Choose Your Best Security

There are many homeowners who install a fence around their property without giving it much thought. 

A fence is a fence….right?   Wrong!!!

burglarSome fences can actually make you a target for burglars, which is the opposite of what you really want and need to help protect you from burglars.

There are a few important things to take into consideration when deciding on the type of fence you need:

1.      Doesn’t Provide a Hiding Place.

When deciding on the type of security fence you need, think “see-through”.  You need to be able to see anyone attempting to enter your property and if they do get in, you want neighbours, the security company and passers-by to be able to see them.

High, solid security walls offer a great hiding place for burglars, and should be avoided, especially if you are living in a high crime area in South Africa.

2.    Difficult to Climb Over.

There are ways to prevent a would-be burglar from entering your property.   Here are a few important points to keep in mind.

•    Make sure the fence is high, the higher the better.
•    Another thing to check are the horizontal rails, as fences with too many horizontal rails can give burglars a foothold to help them climb your fence.  The fewer the horizontal rails are, the more safe the fence will be from climbers.
•    The top of the fence should be spiked or pointed at the top, or you can install razor wire, electric fencing, or ant-climb spikes on the top of the fence for added protection.

3.    Not Easily Circumvented.

If a burglar can easily go under the fence, or cut through it, your security fence is worthless to you.  Make sure too that your gates are closed and locked so that they can’t just walk in.

To avoid this type of thing happening, it is good to consider the following:galvanised concertina barbed wire

•    Make sure your fencing is secured into the ground with concrete.  Posts definitely need to be well secured in concrete.   Although it is a bit expensive to have a concrete footing the whole length of the fence, it does offer the best security to prevent digging.
•    Make sure that the steel used for the fencing cannot easily be cut through with, for instance, bolt cutters.
•    A fence is only as secure as its weakest point, so make sure that you have very secure, heavy duty gates that match the security of the fence.

Always bear in mind:   Your home looks more difficult to break into if you have proper security fences and gates.  It serves as a mental barrier as it will be impossible to get to the house unnoticed and a quick getaway is then out of the question, as a burglar wants to be able to get away with whatever they have stolen as quickly as possible.

Wall Maintenance

big treeAs walls are our security, it is a good idea to check them regularly for any damage.   Planting big trees too close to a wall can cause damage as the tree grows and the roots expand.   It is never a good idea to have big trees close to a property, thus circumventing the security your wall offers you.

Check regularly that nobody has tried to chip away at your wall to gain access and immediately have it repaired if you discover any damage.  Country Wide Walling incorporates steel reinforced modular components that interlock during the installation process, thus making them very strong and durable.

Permanent colour can be added during the manufacturing process which eliminates future painting of the walls, rendering exterior wallthem aesthetically pleasing for many years.
