More Anti-climb Security

crimesceneWith the crime escalating in South Africa, and the police’s inability to do anything about it, we need to be sure we have the best possible protection for our family and property.

Perimeter walls and fences are your first wall of defence, so you need to be sure to use methods that not only deter criminals, but discourage them from even attempting to enter your property.

Besides having good quality walling or fencing erected, there are, among others, fence or wall toppings to increase the security of our walls and fences.   Rola Spikes, which are regarded as probably the most effective fence topping as regards anti-climbing wall solutions, coupled with electric fencing as backup, are highly rated by security industry experts.  

Rola Spikes have proved to be the most effective crime deterrent solution over the past 15 years, and is therefore a great way to effectively protect your family and keep your property safe and crime free.

robber stuckCriminals love easy access, as they usually need to make a quick getaway, and if they cannot climb over easily are wary of even attempting to gain access. Of the many different spikes available, the Rola Spikes are manufactured from imported tough glass fibre-reinforced polyamide that has been UV stabilised, and are totally rust resistant.

The security spikes or stars are very sharp and rotate on 21mm galvanized steel round tubing.  Each star has 6 (six) spikes and they rotate individually when touched, which makes it virtually impossible for would-be intruders to grab onto and climb over perimeter walls, fences or gates.  With electric fences as backup, your security is of the highest possible standard.

An added bonus is the Rola Spikes are manufactured to withstand South Africa’s harsh weather conditions, and because they cannot be tampered with or bent, they make a wonderful addition to any perimeter fencing security.

The rotational spikes are very dangerous, but are neat and will not distract from the aesthetic appeal of your property, and will blend in well with the overall look of the property, while offering maximum security.

Stable Boundary Walls

cracksMany boundary walls are poorly built by people trying to cut costs, and not having the necessary experience and know-how skills base to build it safely.

A perimeter wall is built as a security feature to protect your family, and trying to cut costs and doing a poor job of constructing the wall can lead to it collapsing and seriously injuring a child or animal.   

If a wall falls on a child it can cost a lot of money for hospitalization and doctor’s fees.  This money would have been better invested in getting your security walls safely and professionally installed by Country Wide Walling.

Bad designs, poor foundations and also the lack of expansion joints and support pillars usually result in boundary walls developing dangerous cracks and/or collapsing.  

good boundary wallsWalls leaning over, or splitting apart or cracks in plaster, are all indications of a poorly constructed wall, and unfortunately, usually only become noticeable a long time after the builder has left the site.  You, as the homeowner believe you received a bargain priced wall, but the old saying “you get what you pay for” applies, and could lead to a loss of a lot more money should a child be badly injured with broken bones and a lengthy hospital stay.

If you are one of these homeowners, you need to keep a careful eye on the wall, and if any cracks appear, or the wall starts leaning over, it is best to pay urgent attention to the problem immediately, before anything serious happens.

The best solution is to tear the wall down, and have it professionally set up in order to not only provide security, but to avoid serious injury to a child, family member, or an animal.  In the end, this would be the safest, and most cost effective solution to a dodgy wall.

Always bear in mind that sound engineering principles also need to be applied to the design, manufacture and installation of boundary security walls.

Risk Assessment is a High Priority

palisadeIt is vitally important that we have a very secure perimeter fence or wall to protect our property and family.  It is, and always will be our first line of defence, and, as such, we need to ensure that we have high-security fencing around our property to act as an effective deterrent to would-be criminals.

We must always ensure we know the legal requirements necessary for the erection of good perimeter walls and fences, to avoid unnecessary tearing down of a structure because we have not met the legal requirements.

This is where it is good to consult with experts like Country Wide Walling, who will be able to advise and guide us in making the best possible choice to meet out specific needs.

It is vital to perform a risk assessment to establish threats and consequences of any breaches in security.

You need to take into account whether your property is in a high crime area, and also whether there have been attempts to breach your existing security.

Sometimes you may need to re-evaluate your security, and the risks to see whether you have achieved an acceptable level of protection.  You need to get your security to as close to 100 per cent as possible, and always have the option to add to your protection by installing CCTV, or electronic surveillance systems.

male security guardAlways remember that it is not possible to make your property 100 per cent secure, as a determined criminal will still try and find a way through.

In very high crime areas, it is also a good idea to belong to an armed response group.   You need to do everything you can to ensure you have peace of mind and feel safe and secure in your home.

You need to check periodically that there have been no significant changes in the risk factors in the area you live.   
If there have been any real changes, you need to up your security in order to meet the new challenges.

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.
