Research has shown that building high walls is actually not good security.
You ask why? The answer is simple.
If you are living behind high walls for privacy and security, your ability to see what is going on outside your property is impossible, and it works both ways. You can’t see out, and security companies or police cannot see in.
If an intruder gets access to your property they are then shielded from being seen by anyone on the outside of your property, and can then happily go about their criminal activities without anyone being alerted to their presence.
Having palisade fencing on a lower wall gives people on the outside the opportunity to see the criminal and alert the security or police. It could save your life and the lives of your family.
Crime is escalating, and good security fencing is your first line of defence. Stop making your property attractive to would be intruders.
South Africa is renowned for having an extremely high rate of violent crime. For example. In the mid 1990’s, South Africa’s murder rate was 6 (six) times higher than that of America and 20 (twenty) times higher than that of Britain. Since 1995 South Africa has ranked in the top 6 (six) countries for violent crime.
