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.

Concrete Security Walls

ready made wallConcrete walls can be decorative and not just a dull grey structure as we imagine.   During the manufacturing process permanent colour can be added to the wet concrete mix to ensure that the colour will be permanent, and the walls will not need to be painted in the future.
Alternatively, the walls can be painted at a later stage to incorporate the desired colour to complement the design of the property or wall.    

Concrete is the perfect walling material as it does not rust like steel, and is very limited maintenance, and is very durable, stable and long lasting.

Why settle for ordinary when you can have a wall that is not only strong, durable but also aesthetically pleasing.   In South Africa we value our privacy and security.   We tend to build high walls as a sense of security and a deterrent to would be criminals.   It is therefore a good idea to have a concrete fencerazor wire of about 2.4m and top it with palisade, razor wire, barbed wire, or electric fencing.  

Unfortunately the high walls also offer criminals a good way to be undetected once they are in your property.  There are many aspects of security to take into account when deciding on a security wall for our properties, therefore it is a good idea to discuss all pros and cons with an expert who can advise and guide us to make the correct choice for the safety of our family and property.

Concrete Wall Panels

precast panelsConcrete wall panels are used for many applications, and are an affordable option for both residential and commercial properties.  Boundary walls are a good security option, but that does not mean we need to put up with lopsided, unsightly or badly designed walls.

Boundary walls should be an extension of the architecture of your buildings.  It should add value and aesthetic appeal.  Good boundary walls do add value to your property, besides being a deterrent to unwelcome people wanting to access your property.

For security reasons, a boundary wall should not be built to eye level.   That would just encourage people to look over the wall, and is easy to scale.  If you want security then a high wall with razor wire is a good option.brick iron

When you have a precast concrete wall and wish to paint it, it is a good option to take into account how close the wall is to the building.  If the wall is close, then white is not an option to use, as the sun reflects off white and would make the house or building even hotter.   Neutral or slightly darker colours are a better option.

Boundary walls can be made more eye-appealing by planting shrubs or flowers that will give it a good aesthetic appeal.  Do not plant big trees close to boundary walls, as that would provide a good option for anyone wanting to gain access to your property.

It is always better to get a professional to design and install your walling, as the result would be of a high standard and last for many years.

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.
