3 Easy steps to making your palisade fencing last longer!

If you’re offered palisade fencing in Cape Town at a price that sounds too good to be true, then it probably is! The quality of the fencing will be poor and will more than likely need yearly expensive maintenance just to keep it standing, which is why it’s essential that you work with a reputable fencing contractor that offers only high quality galvanised steel fencing designed to give you a great return on your investment.

Provided that you’ve chosen SABS quality palisade fencing, you won’t be spending a fortune on maintenance after every tough Cape winter or summer, it’ll still be a good idea to keep an eye on the fence for any wear and tear.

3 Easy steps to extend the life of your palisade fencing:

Check for any rust spots

Despite the fact that Topfence Palisade Fencing is manufactured using galvanised steel specifically because of the salty coastal air around the Cape, our winters can be brutal enough to make it worth your while just to do a walk around to keep an eye out for any sign of rust, though, with this quality it’s highly unlikely you’ll find any rust!

Speak to Topfence if there are signs of rust or flaking paint

Should you find any points in the fence where paint is flaking or rust spots appear, though they shouldn’t, you’ll find that the service excellence you experienced from the start with the Topfence team extends to after-sales service that can’t be faulted or beaten.

When a company like Topfence can say that their guarantee is their previous work, you can take that to the bank, and, they add warranties against defective workmanship and materials, which mean you more than likely won’t be calling on them for issues like rust or flaking paint!

Limit plant growth along your palisade fence

This is for the practical reason that plants growing close to the fence causes moisture build-up that could potentially damage the root of your fencing installation. The even better reason not to plant large bushes along your palisade fence is to make sure that there is nowhere for any criminal to hide, should he be willing to risk life and limb to climb a virtually impossible fence to climb!

Ultimately, choosing Topfence as your fencing contractors in Cape Town will assure you of working with a company that has never compromised on quality, and that you can be absolutely confident that your unique Topfence Palisade Fencing will keep you safe for many years to come.

Keep employees safe by protecting your business with Topfence Palisade Fencing

With the high unemployment rate that existed in South Africa before the overnight arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, these figures have risen dramatically, leaving many without an income and many that have had to close their businesses during the complete lockdown in 2020.

Today, over a third of our people don’t have an income and have no way of putting food on the table, and, the negative result of this means that high levels of crime have simply soared, with even those who may never have considered committing a crime now resorting to desperate measures merely to survive.

The facts are that, as South Africans, we have the responsibility of protecting our families, employees, homes and businesses in every way possible, and, for those who are employers and have managed to keep their businesses going; the responsibility has become even greater to protect their employees from robberies.

If in 2018 armed robberies of businesses amounted to 20 047, you can well imagine what they must look like in 2021!  These are robberies that take place in broad daylight and, within seconds, gangs of robbers invade your business and change lives forever for those who survive.

Too many lives are lost in business robberies today, through the sheer lack of respect for life that has become a reality in our world, and, for those who survive, PTSD becomes a very real part of life for years to come.

Start with tough perimeter security as your first level of protection for your business and employees!

There is nothing that can guarantee the safety of your employees 100%, however, you can start by making it virtually impossible for criminals to enter your premises by erecting the toughest palisade fencing in Cape Town, working with the professionals at Topfence!

Every step you take towards securing your property is a step closer to saving the lives of your employees and protecting all that you have worked so hard to build in terms of your business.

Contact Topfence in Cape Town for affordable, durable galvanised steel palisade fencing, this is a team you can rely on to take you from measurements to drawing board and manufacture to installation without missing a step!

Invest in Topfence Palisade Fencing as your first line of defence against residential crime

With soaring crime levels in 2021, it has become essential to have the right perimeter fencing around your property, whether residential or commercial, to protect your loved ones and property under current conditions, especially since home robberies are at the top of the list of crimes in South Africa.

The statistics are horrific, but, unless you’ve been a victim, you can never fully comprehend just how bad these numbers are, and, they are increasing, whether we accept them or not, but, whatever your choice is, security around and inside your property has become an absolute necessity if you want to avoid becoming a statistic.

Home invasions have increased dramatically, many of which end in lives being lost and not even for very much in terms of takings for the robbers. The fact is that life has become cheap, and, with statistics like 300 000 cases of assault on record per year, it’s easy to see why we need to take drastic steps to avoid becoming victims of robbery, whether at home or at work.

House robberies and burglaries are on the rise. Every day 625 homes are burgled, with an additional 61 cases per day where the occupants are confronted in their home, which means that we need to become serious about the security measures we use to deter criminals from attempting to enter our properties.

Start from the outside in with the installation of high quality Topfence Palisade Fencing as your first line of defence

4 Basic security measures that will assist to protect your home in South Africa

While statistics can’t be relied on 100%, they are always a good indication of what’s really happening in terms of the increase in crime, and, if the 250 355 cases of residential robbery and home invasions as reported by the SAPD in 2019/2020 are anything to go by, you’d be looking at almost 700 cases of residential robbery a day!

Of these, nearly 10% take place in broad daylight and when the occupants are at home. This is where the danger lies most of all with the cold-blooded brutality that has become commonplace today, with over 50 people losing their lives to this brutality, oft times for very little reason at all.

All that’s left for us to do as homeowners is to put security measures in place that become a tough enough crime barrier to put off even the most determined criminal from entering our properties.

Here are 4 of the most common security measures we can put in place to avoid becoming victims of home invasions and robbery:

Unobstructed automated driveway gates or garages

The reason for making sure that your automated driveway gates have unobstructed views onto your property is to limit the chances of hijackers having anywhere to hide while they wait for you to enter the property.

It’s essential to remain very alert when driving onto your property, because robbers will wait until you’ve closed the gate and then get you to take them through your home to get what they want, and, again, this is where violence is often the result.

Peripheral security alarms

We can’t afford to live without some form of peripheral alarm that is directly linked either to the police or to your armed response company. Please note that if you have a high wall, neither the police or armed response company is allowed to climb the wall to stop any crime in progress.

Palisade fencing for tough perimeter security

Palisade fencing is the number one choice as the best perimeter security possible. In the first place it’s the best crime barrier you could invest in because it makes your property a hard target for criminals who would rather look for easier pickings elsewhere.

In the second place, it’s almost impossible to climb, cut or hide behind, which means that even if a criminal is idiotic enough to attempt climbing it, he will not have anywhere to hide once an alarm is triggered and your armed response company arrives.

This is the toughest form of perimeter security that can keep you from falling victim to a home invasion.

Add a sting to your palisade fencing with electric fencing

While no one can claim that any security measure is perfect, there can be no doubt that if you take all of the above measures and add the final touch of electric fencing to top off your palisade fencing, you are going to have a property that will significantly reduce the likelihood of your home being targeted by criminals.

The continuing growth of security measures in terms of technology doesn’t mean you’re covered against crime, because as security measures become more sophisticated, so do the criminals who make a study of beating virtually any high tech security measures you’ve installed.

While every business is different in terms of whether it’s a manufacturing plant, a warehouse containing expensive items for export, or, perhaps yours is a research and development business, where patents and secrets about new products need to be well protected.

Tough perimeter security fencing is an absolute must if your commercial or industrial property keeps strict control over who may or may not enter the property, maintaining tough access control in order to protect your business from criminals who are hired to carry out corporate espionage.

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

Investing in quality palisade fencing that will outlast the seasons and salt air of the Cape isn’t a financial decision entered into lightly. However, if you’re serious about the safety and security of your family and property, it’s worth speaking to the team at Topfence to get the assistance you may need to juggle the numbers enough to make it possible to install the best in security fencing.

We live in an age where we have to educate our children from a very young age to protect themselves by not talking to strangers, relegated to playing behind fences and walls that even then aren’t going to keep them safe, depending on what you’ve chosen as perimeter security.

High walls aren’t safe, determined criminals will get over any wall if they choose to, in which case your family is in even more danger because these criminals are then free to go about their business unobserved from the street.

Safety and security experts looking at the exceptional increase in home invasions have advised strongly against high walls. They maintain that walls need to come down so that communities can start looking after their own, as well as giving security patrols a clear line of sight onto your property if there is anything suspicious going on.

Here are just a few of the reasons that Topfence Palisade Fencing in Cape Town is the top choice for tough but attractive perimeter security:

Locally manufactured for local conditions

Considering wet and stormy winters, along with exceptionally windy hot conditions experienced in Cape Town summers, it takes a unique type of palisade fencing to withstand all that the coastal air brings with it.

Essential galvanised steel components

Nothing less than the best in galvanised steel will be of any value to you as a long term investment in security fencing around the perimeter of your residential, commercial or industrial property!

Anything less than this means you’ll be investing in fencing that will need maintenance yearly, and, if it’s particularly low quality fencing, you could well be looking at forking out another small fortune to replace it!

Topfence Palisade Fencing is maintenance free, and it will withstand all that Mother Nature throws at it gracefully, year after year!
