Topfence – your one-stop fencing solutions company in Cape Town

Why go from one contractor to another to handle different stages of your fencing installation when you can do it all, start to finish, with one very experienced, professional fencing solutions company?

Deciding to invest in palisade fencing isn’t a cheap decision to make, it’s a big step and you no doubt want to be absolutely certain that you’re putting your hard-earned cash into the right hands, to get the returns you deserve.

This is why Topfence has tailored the entire experience for customers, taking them from quote to manufacture to installation, without missing a step.

As an experienced team that’s been in the industry since 2008, you can look forward to dealing with people who are down to earth, easy to chat to and to work with, once the project moves from the drawing board to the Topfence manufacturing plant.

Topfence palisade fencing is by no means a DIY product, it’s a one-of-a-kind unique quality of fencing, and each part is manufactured individually to offer you fencing tailored to suit your requirements and taste.

If you want to make sure that your property isn’t considered a soft target by criminals, your best option for perimeter security is palisade fencing, not the high walls that have been the norm before they started giving criminals free reign once they get over the wall.

What makes palisade fencing the best choice for perimeter security?

The Topfence way is to:

  • Manufacture palisade fencing that’s tamperproof, so that cutting the fence isn’t possible nor is tampering with the nuts.
  • Help you to ensure that your palisade fencing choice is going to make it nigh on impossible for anyone to climb. They’ll show you how to do this most effectively by working with you to determine the spaces between the palisade pales as well as planning the ‘ouch’ factor when it comes to the spikes you choose.
  • This team ensures that through their design and experience, you won’t be left with a fence that that sags after the first heavy winter, or the first summer that ushers in the Black South Easter wind!
  • Galvanise all components that go into making this fencing able to withstand the coastal air, especially since rust loves the coast and will creep in anywhere that isn’t protected by galvanised steel.
  • Offer palisade fencing that will last year after year and still look good, without making you fork out a fortune in maintenance costs every time the wind blows too hard or the rain gives it a good pounding. Cheap palisade fencing is going to cost you more and more in maintenance costs over time, making it well worth your while to invest wisely in the right fencing.

If this is the type of investment you’re looking for in perimeter security, Topfence will do it all for you.

They’ll do free, meticulous on-site measurements followed by a no-strings-attached quotation, and, if you decide to sign on the dotted line, they’ll help you with drawing up plans for your individually tailored palisade fence and take you from manufacture to installation, without missing a beat or making you wait forever for action!




Questions to ask a palisade fencing contractor in Cape Town before signing on the dotted line

Top quality perimeter security isn’t a luxury today, it’s an absolute necessity, but before you consider where you’ll make your investment to get the best returns possible, you’ll need to know more about the fencing contractor you’re planning on working with.

A bad investment in palisade fencing is going to cost you a lot more in the long run than placing your investment in quality that will give you great returns for many years to come.

Here’s what you need to know about a fencing contractor before you sign on the dotted line:

  • Will the company be able to give you references from clients that have been satisfied with many years’ worth of quality, durable fencing?
  • Does the company manufacture their own fencing?
  • How long have they been in the industry?
  • What choices do you have with regard to whether the fencing will follow the contours of your property or be of modular design?
  • Will they be open to discussing prices with you before you ask for a quote? If they’re cagey about this, give them a miss!
  • How does the company go about doing on-site measurements and will they charge a fee for this? The right answer is that it should be a free service.
  • How quickly will the company get back to you with a quote designed to suit your budget?
  • What kind of assistance will they give you to draw up plans for the fencing?
  • Will they take your personal preferences into account when tailoring the fence to your requirements?
  • Do they have professionals who are trained to ensure the quality of workmanship is of the highest standard on installation?
  • What kind of warranties are offered?
  • Will the steel that’s used in the manufacture of the fencing be of the type of quality to withstand the coastal air and the rust it brings?

Having been established in 2008, and as market leaders in the palisade fencing industry, Topfence endorses the importance of asking fencing contractors these questions.

Add value to your property & increase its curb appeal by choosing palisade fencing

We all know that installing solar panels, solar water heating systems and other energy-wise systems will increase the value of your property, but, it’s seldom recognised that palisade fencing is yet another addition to your home that adds tremendous value to the property.

Crime levels in the Western Cape show no sign of decreasing, on top of which crime has taken on a far more violent aspect than we’ve ever had to deal with in our quiet little spot near the sea.

This has led to an ever increasing demand for the highest level of security for homes and business properties, and this starts with the first line of defence, the perimeter of your property.

No matter how good your CCTV coverage is, if you have high walls there will always be a blind spot to be taken advantage of. Even with the best of alarms, once the perimeter has been breached there are any manner of ways in which criminals can force homeowners to shut them down and turn away any armed response.

Palisade fencing of today is designed to deter crime, to make sure that it looks like too much work (and probably too much pain) to consider trying to climb, which sends any would-be criminal on to softer targets that don’t come with the same risks.

Buyers in the market today are looking for a home already well-secured, and palisade fencing is generally their first choice of perimeter security, especially when they know that CCTV is far more effective with palisade fencing than with a high wall.

So, where does the curb appeal come into it?

Topfence Palisade Fencing is designed and manufactured to suit the preferences of individual customers, not as a boring, standard fence that doesn’t do much for the property other than protect it.

By choosing the right style and colour of palisade fencing you can extend the work you’ve done to make the façade of your home attractive, making it an aesthetically appealing addition to your property, upping its curb appeal to where you deserve it to be.

And increasing the property value?

As discussed above, people in the market for buying a property will choose a property that already has quality palisade fencing in place as the first crime barrier rather than not.

The emphasis though is on the quality of the fencing. This is where Topfence takes first place with their unique palisade fencing system designed by a team that’s been protecting families and properties since 2008.

Every palisade fence is manufactured according to the individual requirements of a customer, using galvanised steel throughout, from nuts and bolts to the pales, which makes it the best palisade fencing for the Western Cape.

This results in palisade fencing that can’t be cut, climbed or tampered with, nor does it give any criminal a hiding spot, should he make it over the fence without impaling himself on it!

Topfence palisade fencing is made to last and to be maintenance-free, making it an all-round excellent investment in the aesthetic appeal and value of your property.

10 Reasons to trust the quality of Topfence palisade fencing

There’s no doubt about it, Topfence was born in 2008 out of a passion to protect families and properties from ever-increasing crime levels in the Western Cape, and that same passion still drives the team to maintain an unwavering commitment to superb quality in safety.

These guys put their heads together to design a unique palisade fencing system that would be tough enough to withstand many years’ worth of brutal winters and broiling summers, and still look good.

The result is that Topfence has gone from strength to strength through the years, becoming a top fencing contractor in Cape Town and surrounds, growing mainly out of recommendations from clients, which is a real feather in the cap of any long-standing company.

Palisade Fencing Cape Town

Is your home protected by the best perimeter security in Cape Town

If you want to invite criminals onto your property, build a wall. If you want to keep them out, install palisade fencing!

The fact that building a wall is an open invitation to criminals may seem pretty brutal, however, any wall is scalable to the most determined criminal.

As walls go higher, crime syndicates become more sophisticated, especially if the home behind the wall has been watched closely once they’ve chosen it as a high value target.

They’ll know exactly how much time it’ll take for an alarm to be triggered and they’ll also know exactly what type of response can be expected, as well as how long it’ll take for a response from either a security company or the police.

We’ve all seen what happens in movies when a high value home becomes a target. It’s not farfetched to concede that with the level of technological sophistication available to all today, any property can be infiltrated.

The thing with a wall is that once the perimeter has been breached it’s too late, even if an alarm has been triggered.

Home invasion has become rife in a climate of escalating crime. More often than not these home invasions are violent, designed to create maximum terror for the occupants.

With the home invasion taking place behind a wall, the criminal is in a position to force you to inform your security company that it’s a false alarm, giving them all the time in the world to do exactly what they want to, for as long as they want to.

A wall also gives the criminal a way to lie in wait on your property until someone gets home, to avoid the trouble of breaking in.

So, what’s the best response to escalating crime against homes?

Palisade fencing! But why? Well, there a few good reasons that palisade fencing is one of the very best forms of perimeter security available, which we’ll look at below.

Here we take a look at what the team of professionals at Topfence have put together to protect families and homes with quality palisade fencing in Cape Town, and why theirs makes a great investment in your safety.

  • It’s tamper-proof

Put it this way, any criminal facing your property protected by palisade fencing will immediately think it’s not worth the effort. The fencing cannot be cut, nor can the nuts that hold it together be tampered with.

  • It’s dangerous to climb

A palisade fence of high quality is virtually impossible to climb, with the spikes that bring the element of danger to the forefront. The spaces between the palisade pales give no purchase place to assist a climb.

It’s simply too much trouble for your garden variety criminal. If you want to add another level of security to the fence, secure it with electrified fencing above the spikes.

  • Its durable and maintenance free

Once Topfence has completed installing your palisade fence, you can sit back and enjoy the security it offers for many, many years to come.

One of the things that contribute to this durability is that this palisade fencing has been designed to withstand the corrosion and rust that’s inevitable around the coast.

The most important reason that this is the perfect palisade fencing for Cape Town, is that all the components are manufactured by Topfence using the highest grade of galvanised steel!

Want your perimeter security tailor-made to add aesthetic appeal & resale value of your home?

Nothing can beat the end-to-end service offered by the team at Topfence!

They’ll take you from your first enquiry, or obligation free quote (based on free meticulous measurements) to the drawing board, through manufacture on to the final installation of your brand new palisade fence…without missing a beat!

Cape Town quality palisade fencing

All the elements to take into account when you’re ready to opt for fencing in Cape Town

No matter what you build in the coastal air that dominates in the Cape, erosion is always a threat to be considered, irrespective of material used, which includes the right choice in steel for fencing.

Choosing the right fencing that’ll withstand season after season of battering winds, salt, sand and water, which is in abundance anywhere you live close to the sea, is a decision not to be entered into lightly.

This challenge is made even greater by the fact that fencing in regions that are far inland look good a lot longer than the same fencing installed on the coast, which is when choosing the quality in steel fencing plays a vital role in light of offering a great return on investment.

Your investment won’t count for much if you choose to go with low quality, cheap fencing, since you’ll be digging deep into your pocket to maintain the fence for longer than a year or two at a time, at best.

What happens to materials used on the coast for construction and fencing is a lot like what the same elements do to our skin and the protective measures we take to minimise the effects by wearing sunscreen, for instance.

For the same reason it’s essential to choose fencing with the right protection to keep it looking fresh for close on a lifetime.

Here’s a look into each of the elements your fence will have to face at the coast:


The Cape Doctor, known as the infamous black southeaster in Cape Town, brings every element together with brutal efficiency, resulting in the perfect recipe for corrosion.

The northerly winds that prevail during the winter storms are every bit as damaging in the delivery of all that encourages corrosion anywhere it can settle.

Salt erosion

Simply put, the ions in salt, when carried by the coastal air, come together to produce the chemical reactions that are responsible for rust, leading to corrosion on any metal materials.


Water resistance is a priority for anyone building along the sea shore. This is because aside from the spray that carries a concentrated share of salt, the presence of even more water eats into materials like steel fencing that’s not protected with a layer of zinc.


When sand batters against your fencing day after day you can be absolutely certain that it’ll slowly chip away at the paint on your fencing.

The same wind that carries salt brings its friend sand along for the ride and together have a whale of a time pulling your chain to keep you focused on a tiring cycle of trying to maintain the fence against these prevailing odds.

What is the best fencing solution in Cape Town?

If you want a fence that won’t need cleaning or repainting, then it has to be one that is manufactured using galvanised steel, and nobody does this better than Topfence, the premier fencing solutions company in Cape Town.

Why Soaring Crime In South Africa Requires You To Better Your Security Game

What is happening to our beautiful country? Crime rates are increasing by the day. Some people choose to stay oblivious while others do everything in their power to keep their homes and families safe. For those who’d rather get the facts and deal with the reality of the situation, here are some statistics for the crime in South Africa.

In 2018, 20 336 murders were recorded. That’s around 57 a day. Just take a moment to let that sink in. Nearly 60 people die every day in South Africa at the hand of cold-blooded criminals. Additionally, 18 233 cases were opened for attempted murder. That’s a further 49 people per day that survive to tell the story.

As for rape, 110 cases are recorded per day. Since not all rape victims make a statement, the amount can easily be double. More than 300 000 cases of assault were recorded in 2018, 50% of which were with the intent to inflict grievous bodily harm. Robberies, where property is forcefully removed from the victim amounts to more than 500 cases per day. Nearly 70% of these happen with aggravating circumstances.

House robberies and burglaries are on the rise. Every day 625 homes are burgled with an added 61 cases per day where the occupants are confronted in their homes. It seems we aren’t even safe in our own homes any more. What can we do to reduce the risk of becoming a victim? We need to up our security game.

Secure Employee Safety With Palisade Fencing For Your Business

It’s no secret that the crime in South Africa is rife and we don’t foresee it getting better any time soon. While there are many motivations for crimes, one of the biggest seems to be the high unemployment rate which is currently sitting at 27.6% This means that nearly a third of this country doesn’t have an income, thus can’t provide for themselves or their family.

Criminals are also getting more angry and vicious and killing someone for a cellphone has become customary. Obviously, our history doesn’t help the case. But, it is up to us as South Africans to keep ourselves and loved ones safe. We need to take every measure possible to protect our homes and businesses from these criminals.

Business robberies amounted to 20 047 in 2018. These are the type of invasions where employees are present and in broad daylight. That’s 55 businesses being robbed a day! Business burglaries were even more – 71 195 reported cases for 2018. That’s nearly 200 business break-ins a day. If these statistics don’t scare you, nothing will!

Reduce the Risk of Falling Victim to Business Robberies and Burglaries by Installing Steel Palisade Fencing

While palisade fencing alone won’t guarantee the safety of your employees, it will deter potential criminals. Making it more difficult for them to enter and exit your property will make them think twice and they’ll possibly find another easier target.

Every step you take towards securing your property is a step closer to saving the lives of your employees.

Make Your Palisade Fencing Last Longer In 3 Easy Steps

Anything that’s worth buying these days isn’t cheap. The same goes for palisade fencing. In fact, if your offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The quality might be poor. And while poor quality isn’t life threatening when it comes to household items or clothing, your palisade fencing should be of the highest quality. Or you’ll risk the safety of your family.

Since you’ll be spending money on installing high-quality palisade fencing, you’ll probably want to make it last as long as you possibly can. You can extend the lifespan of your palisade fencing with regular maintenance. Here’s how:

Step 1: Regular Inspections

Performing regular inspections will reveal any signs of rust. And while we only use galvanised steel at TopFence, the winters in Cape Town can be harsh. Exposure to rain and storms for long periods of time will take its toll on your fence. Keep your eyes open for water accumulation after a storm and regularly check for signs of rust.

Step 2: Address Rust and Flaking Paint

If you come across damage due to rust or flaking paint during your inspection, you’ll want to sort it out right away. If you wait too long, the damage might spread to other parts of the steel fence. You can eliminate water damage by sanding off the flaking paint or rust with a wire brush before applying paint.

Step 3: Limit Plant Growth near Palisade Fence

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – palisade fencing doesn’t mix well with water over long periods of time. This includes plants growing beside your fence. The plant itself isn’t a problem, it’s the accumulation of moisture that can cause damage to your fence.

Maintaining your palisade fencing isn’t complicated and you and your fence can have many happy years together. Just make sure you hire professional fencing contractors in Cape Town for the installation. Topfence will never compromise on quality and you can be sure your fence will keep you safe for many years to come. Give us a call for a free quote today!
