Razor Spikes

razor point spikesIf your boundary fence or wall is 1.8m in height, you are able to attach extra security extensions. The total height should not exceed 2m.

Three dimensional razor spikes are very popular as anti-climb protection, and also suitable to top gates.

There is a Razor Spike designed which provides greater strength, and serves as both a physical and psychological barrier to any would be intruder.

These spikes are manufactured from steel and are heavily ribbed during the manufacturing process. This ensures ultimate sharpness and strength.

razor spikes on gateThe spikes are 11cm high and consist of 2 (two) rows of spikes. The inner spike is a thinner and stiletto shaped ribbed spike which is capable of penetrating a foot or any body part coming into contact with it.

The outer spike is barbed and angled outwards overhanging the edge of the structure to which it is attached.

These spikes are virtually impossible to climb over, and are a huge security feature, and have the added advantage that they are maintenance free.

Spikes can be fitted under electric fences, to ensure the extra security and impenetrability we all seek, in order to keep our property and family safe.

razor spike warningSpikes can also be installed under roofs to make it impossible for anyone to climb onto the roof to gain access to your home or business.

As spikes are considered extremely dangerous, they should only be added to walls or fences at a minimum height of 2m. At no time must they be added where there is a possibility of injuring pedestrians.

The spikes must be completely visible and must comply with local laws and regulations in regard to height and positioning. There should also be clear warning signs to prevent any bad repercussions at any time, should an unsuspecting person get seriously injured.

Concrete Palisade Fencing for Security

stormWith our harsh climate and high crime rate in South Africa, Concrete Palisade Fencing has become the material of choice, as it can not only withstand harsh weather and wear and tear, it also has the benefit of being see-through, meaning that nobody can sneak up to your property unseen.

Another benefit is that Concrete Palisades have no scrap value, unlike metal, which can be stolen and sold as scrap.

Concrete Palisade fencing marks the boundaries of your property in a neat and aesthetically pleasing way, at the same time screening your home and garden, thus providing security and maintaining your privacy.

little kids running street 21063594We all know that small children and pets love to wander, and we need to keep them safe, and prevent them from wandering out of your yard into the streets, and into danger from traffic.

We would all love to have high, solid walls around our properties to ensure our privacy, but the drawback is that it also provides privacy to intruders, as, once they have found a way in, they cannot be seen from the outside by anyone passing by, or even security on patrol.

Because our products use integral colour, your palisade fence will stay looking beautiful for years to come. Permanent colour can be added during the manufacturing process, which means your palisade will remain beautiful for many years.

At Country Wide Walling we take pride in our workmanship, and endeavour to exceed our clients expectations.

Electric Fences

electric fence wall topElectric Fences are used to increase the security of a boundary wall, and are an electrified barrier added to the top of a boundary wall or fence.

Make sure you check the by-laws in your area before erecting an electric fence, or any wall or fence, as local authorities and municipalities have their their own by-laws that must be complied with.

An electrified fence is an electrified barrier erected on top of a boundary wall or fence, and may not be a freestanding electric fence.

No freestanding electric fences may be erected along any boundary, in such a position that it would allow people to accidentally come into contact with it. Electric fencing is erected to keep intruders out, so should not be erected in such a way that a passer-by could accidentally come into contact with it.

electric fence topElectric fences must always conform to the following specifications:

• They must not be any higher than 450mm.
• They must always be at least 1.8 m above ground.
• They can only be erected on top of walls or fences.
• They must never encroach over site boundaries.

Other wall-top barriers, e.g. barbed wire, should never be electrified, as the purpose of electric fencing is that a person who touches the electric wiring, will let go immediately.

Electric fences are an excellent deterrent to would-be intruders, but we can’t stress enough, they should never be a danger to anyone else.
