What type of security fencing will protect your business best?

As a business owner there’s no doubt that no matter what you’re protecting, you’re going to look at installing the most effective security barrier to do the job, and to do it well.

It’s going to take more than having a security guard on post day and night to protect your interests. There are just too many areas that can be used as a way to enter your property, especially if the area that he has to cover is quite extensive.

As the technological aspects of security increase, criminals continue to adapt, using sophisticated methods designed to override security systems on private and commercial properties with frightening ease.

Your investment into the production of products that you’re protecting at your premises makes it worth doing a thorough investigation into the most effective security barrier to repel anyone intent on stealing the product of your hard work!

Every business is unique of course. For some it’ll be the protection of materials used to manufacture products, whether in-house or as exports to clients who use the materials in the production of their own products.

Theft of your materials leads to more than just the loss of these materials.

The knock-on effect is that your ability to meet supply and demand will take a downward spiral. This is a situation that will force your customers to look elsewhere for these materials while you seal up the breach in your security barrier.

No matter how loyal your customers are, they cannot hold things up on their end until you’re able to replace materials or components that have been stolen.

Perimeter security in the form of either palisade fencing or rigid mesh fencing is an absolute necessity if you need to have strict control over who is allowed onto your property.

For many business owners, especially those involved in research and development of new products, heightened security is a no-brainer!  The secrets that go into this type of research and development leaves a business open to corporate espionage, without the proper access controls in place.

The admission to your property of just one person not meant to be there could lead to losses no one can afford in today’s highly competitive industrial and commercial sphere. In fact, the theft of secrets about manufacturing processes is a very lucrative industry for the unscrupulous.

Let’s look at two fencing options available today from Topfence in Cape Town that’ll mean your business is protected by tough, durable security barriers:

Palisade fencing

Standing tall, with no foot-holds, palisade fencing has earned its place as a top security barrier, particularly for commercial businesses intent on adding elegance and style to the perimeter security around their buildings.

This is also a very popular type of fencing solution for business complexes, especially those that incorporate round-the-clock security guards and entrance barriers, which is an excellent approach to multi-layered forms of protection.

The design of the tops of palisade fencing, along with the variety of colours available for this fencing, means that each can be as unique as is desired.

Topfence has proven over and over again that perimeter security no longer needs to look drab or to resemble a prison!

Rigid mesh fencing

Rigid mesh fencing is a style often chosen to protect industrial premises, schools, parks, hospitals, private homes and more, which can look as attractive as palisade fencing does and be equally effective!

The choice is yours!

Whether you’re looking for a standard type of perimeter fencing solution, or are after something a little more out of the box, the team at Topfence is more than willing to share many years’ worth of experience in the industry as a way to make sure you have the best security barrier in Cape Town!

Save money by choosing high quality fencing that’s maintenance free

If you’re going to go with fencing as the best perimeter security, it’ll be best to make your investment really worthwhile by choosing the fencing very carefully.

The same care needs to be applied to finding a fencing contractor, so that you don’t end up with one that’ll do a sloppy installation and leave you with a fence that starts falling apart far sooner than promised.

If you live in Cape Town you really need to be careful about both the credentials of the contractor and the quality of the fencing produced by the company.

This really matters if you want to invest in a fence that will stand the test of time, without putting you in the position of having to fork out more and more of your hard earned cash on maintenance.

Questions to ask fencing contractors in Cape Town before committing yourself:

  • Ask about the background of the company and how long it’s been in business. This is a sure way of ensuring that you are dealing with a fencing contractor that is anything but a fly-by-night company.
  • Ask for references. Any fencing contractor will be only too happy to share recommendations and references from past clients.
  • Ask questions about prices before you even ask for a quotation. If the contractor is open and easy to approach, you’ll be in the pound seats. They’ll be more than willing to give you an indication of prices, so that you have a basic idea of how to plan your basic budget accordingly.
  • Ask for photos of previous fence installations so that you have a visual of what can be done, especially if you want your barrier fence to be an attractive extension of your property, whether residential or commercial.
  • Ask about the manufacturing process of the fencing and the type of materials used to produce the fencing, especially because it has to be tough enough to repel the rust floating around the coastal area of the Western Cape.

Once you’ve had all your questions answered, you’ll already have a good handle on the professionals you’ll be dealing with, based on their level of honesty and transparency in their dealings with you.

This will give you the confidence you deserve before committing your budget to securing your property with a perimeter barrier that will be of long-lasting quality.

The choice of fence also brings up the question of whether a modular fencing solution will suit your property, or whether you need to look at a more tailored fence to fit the natural contours of your property.

Security fencing in Cape Town has to be manufactured using galvanised materials. Anything less is going to mean that rust will find purchase somewhere on the fence, and where it finds its first home there’s a guarantee that it’s going to spread.

While you’re scouting around to find well-established fencing contractors in Cape Town, a good place to start will be at Topfence, where you’ll find all the answers to your questions.

Enhance the curb appeal of your property with a tailor-made security barrier

There are a few major points that make palisade fencing the best security barrier for residential and commercial properties, and if you get all of them to work together, you’ll have perimeter security second to none.

What are some of these points?

Can the fence be climbed?

The impact that ever-escalating crime statistics are causing in South Africa, has meant that home and business owners have started paying serious attention to the level of security around properties, and which is best suited for their purposes.

Palisade fencing, when it’s done right, is virtually impossible to climb.  You need to be absolutely sure of the quality of fencing you choose, so that you end up with fencing that would give no criminal any purchase place from which to enter your property.

No foothold means no way in!

Is the fence tamperproof?

If it’s easy to cut the fence or to tamper with it in any other way, you’ve chosen the wrong fencing!

Everything from the nuts and bolts, to the galvanised steel pales (rails) that are connected to vertical steel joists, has to be of the highest quality in order to make the security barrier tamperproof.

A further note about this is that a palisade fence is more than just an excellent crime barrier, it is also one of the best deterrents you could add to your property.

If it’s too much trouble to access your property, anyone with criminal intent is going to move on to a softer target.

Will the fence sag?

If the horizontal section of the palisade fence you’ve chosen is made from inferior materials, you’ll find that before long the fence will begin to sag, which is going to make access to your property easier.

It will also cost you more if it needs to be repaired, and, if the fence needs to be replaced, you’ll have to dig deep into your pocket again to do so.

A high quality barrier fence only costs you the initial layout. If it keeps draining your finances, it would cost you less to start all over again and choose strength, quality and durability.

Will it add curb appeal?

There’s no doubt that any property owner, whether residential or commercial, has invested much into the design of the property and would be loath to add an unattractive security barrier to its perimeter, simply for the sake of security.

The beauty of palisade fencing designed and manufactured by a top company such as Topfence, is that it can be designed to be a stylishly attractive extension of your property, which in no way lessens its strength to protect your loved ones and property.

Will it add to the resale value of your property?

Whether or not you’re planning to sell your home, now or in the future, there’s no doubt that buyers are taking perimeter security as seriously as you do, and palisade fencing is a great selling point today.

A durable, attractive palisade fence ups the value of your property far more than a high wall would. This is borne out by the fact that experts agree, that today a high wall can be scaled by the most determined criminal, whereas fencing won’t give them anywhere to hide from view.
