Precast Perimeter Fencing

precast boundary wall installationWhen deciding on fencing the perimeters of your property, it is good to keep in mind that Concrete Walling is the most cost-effective option, and is installed four times faster than other walling types, thus providing the security and privacy you require sooner.

Concrete walling is manufactured in a controlled environment, and is therefore uniformly of a high standard and good quality.

paintingPrecast walling is virtually maintenance free as is. You can, however, choose to have it coloured, either during the manufacturing stage, or sealed and painted to match the aesthetics of your property.

If you choose the latter option, you may need to repaint when the colour fades, or is damaged. Precast walls generally blend in well with the environment.

There are many designs and options to choose from, and it is always a good decision to discuss your requirements with a consultant, or specialist. We, at Country Wide Walling, take pride in our workmanship, and endeavour to give only the very best to our clients. We also give a two-year guarantee on our products.

To complete the security of your property, we will also install either steel swing gates, or steel sliding gates. This means you need have a contractor on site once only, and you will receive a complete all-round service.

Steel Gate Safety

sliding steel security gateMaking sure our homes or businesses are safe by installing good quality walling or fencing is not our only priority.

We also need to ensure that we have strong gates which are working properly.

To ensure the gates are in good working condition, it is advisable to check them regularly to ensure they are functioning as they should be.

Check regularly that there is nothing on the gate tracks to prevent it from closing properly, e.g. mud or debris. Once the gate is stopped from closing by any obstacle, it will merely open again, and will then give easy access to your property.

anti vandalismYou can also install an anti-vandalism bracket on your gate, to prevent anyone from tampering with it, and thus giving easy access. Another good idea is to have an anti-crashing kit fitted which links to your alarm system. This will ensure that the alarm is activated should anyone try to tamper with the gate.

Whether you choose steel swinging gates, or steel sliding gates, always check to see that they are in proper working condition.

Steel gates are a very good option, as they do not offer easy access to your properly as would for instance a wooden gate.

If you would like more information on steel sliding gates, or steel swing gates, or for a free quotation, please do not hesitate to contact us at Country Wide Walling. Our consultants will be happy to assist you

Sliding or Swing?

You can have plain steel gates or gates with doggie bars. These are important to keep your fur babies safe inside your property.

Our sliding gates are made to suit our clients, and are installed with high quality gate tracks. The gate tracks are important to ensure the gate moves smoothly, and does not put any stress on the gate motor, thus prolonging the gate motor life.

Anti-lift brackets ensure the gate cannot be lifted off the track to obtain easy access to your property, ensuring added security. At Country Wide Walling we believe in supplying our customers with a fully tailored package, and take pride in delivering outstanding workmanship and products.

Whether it is a sliding gate or a swing gate that you require, we can and will deliver and install together with your walling, to ensure you have the full security you require.

Spikes or spears can be added to the centre or top of the gate to make it difficult and painful for anyone wishing to intrude on your property.

Steel is definitely the best option for gates as they are not as easy to cut through as a wooden gate would be, should someone try to get through to your house or garage.

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.

Why not contact us at Country Wide Walling to discuss your needs with our highly trained consultants. They will gladly advise, guide and assist you, or simply request a free quotation.
