Choosing the correct kind of fencing for premises security is of critical importance for every business seeking to safeguard their operation. While there is a wide range of options available to protect the perimeter of your property, using electric fencing can provide a powerful deterrent, both physically and psychologically to potential intruders. In the next sections, we’ll explore just some of the advantages of selecting an electrified fence for your site.
Three-step onsite security
Electric fences can offer enterprises the ability to not only deter trespassers but detect and delay them as well. Smart criminals will always favour a weak target rather than one presenting a challenge, so signs of an electric fence will often make them look elsewhere for a more vulnerable victim. If criminals persist and attempt to penetrate the fence, they’ll receive an electric shock, and if this doesn’t deter them, it will certainly delay them long enough for you to respond. Additionally, if the fence is connected to an alarm system, they will also be detected long before they can cause damage or commit acts of theft.
Easy to set-up
While a professional installation is always recommended for maximum security, electric fences are renowned for how easy they are to set up, and electric fence toppings can also be added to existing fences to give them a powerful upgrade to shore up your defences.
Defended against the elements
Commonly crafted from steel or aluminium, the latest electric fence solution uses a specially formulated powder coating to safeguard electric fences against rust. Protection from oxidation is key for security fencing as rust causes iron alloys such as steel to lose structural integrity. This results in them becoming brittle and more prone to breaking.
Overall, electric fences are extremely low maintenance and weather-resistant. Patrols to remove any unwanted debris against the fence and routine checks on connections and voltage is all that is typically required.
