Topfence offers the best first-level security as protection for your property

There are varying types and levels of security that cover a multitude of deterrents for residential, commercial and industrial properties, but no matter where your property fits in, Topfence will work with you to maximise the perimeter security.

The team at Topfence has been protecting families in the Western Cape since 2008, which is more than enough experience to tell you that when they say they’re fully committed to the safety and security of their customers, you can believe it!

Having designed a unique palisade fencing system that can withstand extreme weather conditions around the coast, Topfence has made sure that the fencing they manufacture will protect properties long after installation.

Here are the main levels of security that are used either as standalone systems or as combined systems for maximum protection.

First-level security

Your first-level of security would be the wall or fence around your property.  If there is no first-level of security, anyone is able to approach your building, whether residential or commercial, without any hindrance.

Adding a palisade fence and topping it with electric fencing, which will take making your property unattractive to criminals to a whole new level!

Second-level security

Second-level security is generally a combination of physical crime barriers and passive detectors.

Burglar bars and security gates are essential physical crime barriers on any home or business.  These form another layer of security to your property if intruders have already managed to gain access.

Go the whole hog and add a fence alarm system via a beam into the mix, and your property won’t even be worth a second glance from any criminal!

On the passive end of security for your property is the use of CCTV cameras and motion detectors, however, and it’s a big however, CCTV works best with palisade fencing due to the clear line of sight the fencing offers.

Third-level security

Third-level security generally consists of burglar alarms inside your home or office, triggered either by movement or as a result of doors and windows being forced open.

Stopping intruders before they even get near your home or business is going to depend on how tough your perimeter security is, which is why the route being chosen by homeowners and business owners today is to break down walls and raise up quality palisade fencing.

Early warning

Many homeowners are opting for early warning devices such as external beams, but there is a bit of a distance to go before these beams can tell the difference between a bird, plant or person accurately!

Still, there’s a lot to be said for being woken up by these early warning systems if it means that when it is something serious, you’ll be ready for it!

Don’t settle for anything less than the very best in palisade fencing

Investing in palisade fencing isn’t something one does on the spur of the moment, it takes more than just a bit of juggling on the financial side of things for a start.

The fact is, however, that it’s worth juggling those numbers if you’re serious about the safety and security of your family.

The current generation will never know what it’s like to be allowed to play outside until the street lights come on, instead, they’re growing up in a pervasive atmosphere of fear as a result of high crime rates.

Our children and pets are now relegated to playing behind fences or walls, with stern warnings from parents not to talk to strangers or let anyone onto the property ringing in their ears from an early age.

Ours is the age of palisade fences, gated communities and security complexes, an age in which people are finally realising that we need to break down walls and work as a community to protect our families and homes as a whole.

Consider the link between unemployment & high crime rates & then choose the best perimeter security

Perimeter security is all that stands between the pavement of your property and the front door, and it’s this perimeter security that acts as the first line of defence for your family, assets and property.

This level of perimeter security applies to all properties, whether residential or commercial, and it should be an uncompromising decision that backs up just how serious you are about security.

When we speak of overwhelming loss, we aren’t just referring to the valuables you keep in the safe at home or in the office, we are also thinking about violent crime that takes place in broad daylight when someone is at home, whether it’s a child, parent or employee.

When criminals are intent on carrying out their nefarious actions, they really don’t care who gets in their way. As long as the property is an easy target in terms of access, it’ll be considered easy pickings.

There is undoubtedly a direct correlation between unemployment and the growing crime rates in South Africa, which has led to an awareness of how dangerous it is to have perimeter security that isn’t up to scratch as a tamper-proof crime deterrent.

A fence that’s easy to climb or cut won’t help, nor will a high wall.  Once a criminal gains entry over the wall, he has free reign to do as he pleases, without anyone being able to see into the property.

In addition to this, most criminals are clued into private security and police service response times, they make it their business to know!

The more the economy slides down, the more poverty rises, and on its heels, so too do the crime statistics.

While the majority of perpetrators are career criminals, the saddest statistic of all is that of ordinary mothers, fathers and children who turn to criminal activities just to put food on the table!

This is not in any way a justification for any type of crime, it’s simply the way it is, and with little light on the horizon in the near future, it’s only natural that our safety and security becomes our number one priority.

While you are debating about the type of perimeter security you’d choose as quality protection for home and business, here are a few numbers sourced from Stats SA’s quarterly labour force survey that will make you take the security of your property very seriously:

Unemployment in general

9.6 Million South Africans are unemployed, bringing the unemployment rate to almost 28%, the highest it’s been in the last 10 years

Unemployed youth

In the second quarter of 2018, Stats SA reported that 6.1 million of our youth is unemployed, a whopping 38.8%!

Job losses in 2018

90 000! This in just one year?  Worse, it’s the manufacturing industry that’s hardest hit in terms of laying off employees.

Before we go any further it’s important to note that high crime levels and unemployment statistics are not limited to our country alone, both are also worldwide crises.

Is high tech security gadgetry enough on its own?

With crime statistics and unemployment rates being this high, it’s not surprising safety and security has morphed into state of the art high tech crime prevention.

Despite all the high tech security gadgetry available today, it will only be as good, and work as effectively as it should, with the right kind of perimeter security!

A high wall unfortunately still has dark corners out of view of a CCTV camera, which is well known by criminals, who then use these dark corners as cover while gaining entry to your property.

If you want your other security measures such as CCTV to work as effectively as it should, then palisade fencing is the best option.

Palisade fencing allows for a clear view in and out of the property, which in itself is a great crime deterrent!  If gaining access to your property looks like too much hard work, criminals will move on to softer targets.

They want the easy way out of everything, after all!

Give the team at Topfence a call and let them give you the facts you’ll need with which to make an informed decision about what would constitute the toughest perimeter security for your property!

Having been in the industry as market leaders since 2008, there’s no doubt that you’ll find the perfect solution for perimeter security from Topfence.
