It’s unfortunate but true, that there simply isn’t a crime barrier that can guarantee 100% protection against escalating crime rates in South Africa, however, there are excellent ways in which you can make sure that your property is as unappealing as possible to a criminal looking for easy pickings.
The crime rate and rate of unemployment was bad enough towards the end of 2019, however, no one could foresee the havoc caused to lives and the economy that the COVID-19 pandemic brought by early 2020.
This is our new reality, and, in this new reality, even people who would never have resorted to crime have been forced to do what’s necessary simply to put food on the table in the face of mass unemployment and a climate of fear and insecurity.
There is some good news though, if you want to make sure that your property, whether residential or commercial, is as secure as possible and as inaccessible as possible too.
This good news is that palisade fencing has become the number one choice for property owners’ intent on protecting lives and property, in addition to other security measures that work really well in tandem with palisade fencing, such the addition of electric fencing to round off your palisade fence and CCTV.
In 2021 people are breaking down high walls to replace them with palisade fencing, in the main because crime experts have indicated that high walls don’t keep determined criminals out, especially from what they consider to be high-value targets.
Once they’ve gained entry to your property, no matter how high the wall is, they lie in wait for driveway gates to open and to pounce, and, once they have you and your family behind that wall that was supposed to keep you safe, they are free to do whatever they please without being disturbed.
Palisade fencing makes your property less attractive to criminals because gaining a foothold is a tough nut to crack, as is risking the spikes that line the top of your palisade fence, and, when you deal with Topfence, you’ll find that you can make those spikes as vicious as you like, just to make life even more dangerous for criminals!
If it’s real perimeter security you’re looking for, you cannot do better than durable, attractive Topfence Palisade Fencing!
The basics of palisade fencing & its makeup
Palisade fencing is made up of cold-rolled steel rails, which are commonly known as palisade pales, which are then attached to horizontal rails and connect to vertical steel joists.
The height is of the fence is also an important factor to consider, although a well-designed palisade fence doesn’t have to be too high just to make it more difficult to gain access to your property.
If your fence has been designed to keep criminals out, as long as they aren’t long jump champions, you can discuss the height with the team at Topfence for maximum protection.
While these may be the fundamental basics of palisade fencing, it’s very important that you know what type of material is used in the manufacture of your fencing, especially in Cape Town, with its corrosive coastal air.
