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.

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.

Your Home is Your Castle

manufacturingYour fence is the first line of defence against uninvited intruders to your property.  If your home is your castle, then a good security fence is a must have.

The type of fence you choose to secure your property is very important, and can be the difference between good security and fence which is easily scaled and gives access to unwanted intruders.

Choosing the best materials and type of fence or wall is totally important and, as there are many options available, it is good to look into the different types available, then make your choice.

How to Paint an Outdoor Concrete Fence

Concrete fences are typically grey and dull, making them boring and sometimes uoutdoor concrete fencensightly. To remedy this, you can paint a concrete fence, giving it colour and make it look new. Painting an outdoor concrete fence can be done alone or you can ask a family member or friend to help you. It is important to remember to use only primer, paint and sealer that is made for concrete and block. Otherwise, the paints will not bond and will flake off the fence.

Things You'll Need

•    Trisodium phosphate (TSP)
•    Bucket
•    Rubber gloves
•    Scrub brush
•    Concrete patch
•    Trowel
•    Concrete primer
•    Pump sprayer
•    Paint thinner
•    Concrete paint
•    Concrete sealer
•    Paintbrush

Mix together three parts water with one part trisodium phosphate (TSP) in a bucket.

holesPut on rubber gloves and thoroughly scrub the concrete fence with a scrub brush, cleaning away any dirt and grime. Rinse the concrete fence with plain water and allow to air dry.

Fill any holes or cracks in the fence with concrete patch using a trowel to apply the patch and to smooth it flush with the surface. Let the patch dry according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Pour concrete primer into a pump sprayer and apply a coat of primer to the fence. Let the primer dry completely before continuing on to the paint.

Rinse the pump sprayer with mineral spirits, then water and let air dry. Add concrete paint to the sprayer and spray on the first coat of paint. Let the first coat dry between 3 and 4 hours, then apply a second coat of paint.

Brush a coat of concrete sealer onto the fence using a paintbrush once the second coat of paint has dried.

Sliding Steel Gates

Sliding Steel Gates

Along with providing walling for your home, Country Wide Walling are also gate manufacturers and can install sliding steel gates and steel swing gates.   

When security is a high priority for you, and you install quality precast walls or fencing, you need to have the added benefit of a steel sliding gate or pedestrian gate, to ensure you have complete protection.   Country Wide Walling will not only erect your precast walling or fencing, we can also install a steel sliding gate, or pedestrian gate.  This will ensure you have a fully tailored package, with the added benefit of having contractors on site once only.

Steel gates have advantages over other types of gates, as they are strong and durable, and not easily tampered with, thus providing added security to your property.  Steel gates can have fancy shapes which will allow visibility inside your property, as well as allow you to see what is going on outside, without having to open the gate.   No need for a solid steel gate, the designs are aesthetically pleasing, and can blend in with the walls to compliment and enhance the beauty and value of your property.  Solid steel gates have disadvantages as they are very heavy and difficult to transport and install.

Wooden gates are not a good option, as it makes it easier for a burglar to cut through and break in.  If security is your priority, wooden gates are not an option, whether they are carved, or plain, they can be cut through and damaged. 

Your walls and gates are the first impression people have of your property.  Make it count.  

There are several companies operating nationwide who not only manufacture the gates, but also do the installations.   They will not only sell the gate, but in addition, offer a gate repair service, should it be required in the future.

Whether you are situated in Bloemfontein, Kimberley or Gauteng, let us install a steel gate with your concrete walls.   Have it done right, and ensure your peace of mind.
