Protecting family and property is a top priority for South Africans struggling to counteract high crime rates that just keep soaring, year on year.
Unfortunately, because of the sophistication of criminals these days, no crime barrier is 100% fool proof, but palisade fencing comes as close as can be when it comes to tough perimeter security.
For those still labouring under the false impression that a high wall will do it, it won’t. Criminals will gain entry by waiting for driveway gates to open, or use efficiently planned ways of scaling the wall, no matter how high.
Besides being a really tough nut to crack in terms of climbing, palisade fencing is also an excellent crime deterrent that’ll send criminals on their way, before they even attempt to gain entry to your property.
Let’s get to the nitty gritty of palisade fencing, so that you can make an informed decision about the choice of perimeter security for your property
What is palisade fencing?
Cold rolled steel rails (otherwise known as pales) attach to horizontal running rails, which are then connected to vertical steel joists, to form tough, durable palisade fencing.
These are the basics of how palisade fencing is manufactured, but this is where the boys are separated from the men in terms of individuality.
With a company like Topfence in Cape Town, you’ll have a palisade fence system that’s tailored according to your unique specifications and design.
You certainly won’t be lumped with all the rest, since you’ll be choosing the most attractive fence possible to grace your residential or commercial property.
Another thing is that the team of experts at Topfence will make sure that you understand how important it is to get the height of your fence right to enhance security.
What about the top of your fence?
The design you settle on for the top of your palisade fence isn’t only for added security. It’s yet another way of adding more style to it and working in all the extra’s that make it even less attractive to criminals.
Your Topfence consultant will discuss the options available with you, so that you get the best finish possible. By the time you’ve decided on whether you want a topping such as a rounded or notch finish, a single or triple point option, among others, you’ll be absolutely confident that you’ve chosen the best.
Topfence is the #1 palisade fencing manufacturer and contractor in Cape Town and they mean business when it comes to protecting your family and property, drawing on the quality of their fencing to provide clients with benefits such as:
- Visual deterrent – your property is no longer considered a soft target when it looks too difficult to access, which sends criminals on their way before they even make the first move. The sharp edges at the top don’t allow for criminals to gain a foothold either, further increasing the deterrence qualities.
- Tamper proof – it’s important to choose palisade fencing that can’t be cut or tampered with. This is only possible if security shear nut fasteners are used, along with sandwiched fixers, which are a unique feature of the Topfence palisade fencing system. These components mean that the fence can’t be cut or interfered with at all.
- Non-sagging – Topfence palisade fencing does not sag, ever! Many have invested in palisade fencing only to find that sagging starts barely a season later. This tough quality is achieved by using a bended horizontal section, ensuring that your fence will remain straight, season after season.
- Maintenance free – this is a palisade fencing system that is maintenance free, so that the only thing you budget for is the actual fence itself, especially in the extreme weather conditions around the coast in Cape Town.
- High security – if you want to go all the way with high security, electric fencing can be added, along with CCTV cameras, which are highly effective when used with a palisade fence.
