Making Wise Security Decisions

razor wire palisade fenceHaving a perimeter wall or fence in South Africa is a great way to prevent crime in residential areas.

It is very wise to choose to install a concrete wall or fence as your first line of defence against criminals.

Concrete Palisade is a really good option, as criminals cannot easily hide behind the fence, and can be easily seen when they try to breach your property.

Concrete Palisade can be topped with Electric fencing or Razor Wire to give added protection, and making it so much less appealing to would be intruders. A good idea is to never grow shrubs or high plants at the front of the palisades as it gives criminals a place to hide in order to breach your property unseen.

Never plant trees close to your fencing, as criminals can easily use their overhanging branches to get over your boundary and onto your property. Have nothing close to the fencing, dustbins, drums, etc., that way you are not making it easy for potential criminals, and will be more difficult for them to intrude.

Crown of Thorns is, however, a good plant to use, should you wish to do so, as it has thorns nobody wishes to mess with. A rambling rose bush can also be used should you really want shrubbery, it has thorns but also gives you pretty roses.

Good advantages of Concrete Palisade include:

• Intruders cannot hide behind it
• Intruders cannot easily climb over
• It stays strong over time
• It withstands harsh weather conditions
• It will not rust and deteriorate
• It cannot be damaged by fires
• It is practically maintenance free
• It is much cheaper than for instance brick walls.

If you choose to have Concrete Palisade Fencing around your property, it is a good idea to have a concrete base laid to rule out the possibility of anyone gaining access by digging underneath the fencing.

A good alternative is to have the palisade fitted on top of a concrete or brick wall.

With all the options available to you, we, at Country Wide Walling, will gladly assist and advise you on what your best option for your property should be.

What type of maintenance is required?

precast concrete fenceIf you install a precast concrete wall or fence, virtually no maintenance is necessary. You can, however, paint it if you wish to change the colour, but, as colour is added during the manufacture process, it is not necessary to paint, unless, as stated, you wish to have a colour change.

You will never have to pay for painting, oiling , resealing or rust removal, etc. You will only need to wash the wall periodically should it get dirty. This is a simple task, using your garden hose.

As individual components can be replaced should they get damaged, repairing the walls is equalling uncomplicated, and inexpensive, as you do not have to do repairs to the entire structure.
