Soaring crime rates over the last years have seen homeowners resorting to trying to fortify their properties with high walls, yet these walls have had the opposite effect, instead of keeping criminals out, these walls have become the biggest threat to residents themselves.
Sadly, brazen home invasions and serious crimes have continued unabated despite the high walls, giving criminals the opportunity and time to act unseen behind these walls, which is when the most serious crimes occur, out of sight of anyone else.
With the changing climate of safety and security, many people see little point to breaking down these walls, despite the fact that studies by experts in the safety and security industry agree that high walls have become counter-productive as crime deterrents. Many homeowners who have done their own research into which form of perimeter security offers the greatest degree of protection have discovered that the increased visibility offered by palisade fencing is a far more viable alternative to solid barriers.
While the importance of security technology such as beams, passives or CCTV in optimising security cannot be ignored, an emphasis on natural surveillance from within the home and outside looking in, especially helpful to security patrols and neighbourhood watches, has become a vital way of changing how we view our perimeter safety.
