Using electricity as a safety measure
For many people knowing there are security measures in place
at your premises is a reassuring fact. As we live in a day
and age where crime is increasing yearly; keeping your family
and your assets safe has become a full time activity. There
are many security solutions that are available to you as a
person and selecting the appropriate solution can be a daunting
task. However there is one security solution that every premises
can benefit from, this is of course electric fences.
Factors in selecting the right electric fences
There are a couple of factors that contribute towards the
effectiveness of electric fences and which should be taken
into consideration when getting electric fences installed. The first and foremost factor of electric fences is that the
structure of the fences should be stable enough to keep intruders
out. Remember that electric fences act as a front line defense
therefore the electric fences should employ the use of the
highest voltage possible and should also have an alarm system
to warn of tampering of the fences. The alarm system that
is used with electric fences can be operated as a separate
unit or the alarm system can be routed through your existing
There are two different types of electric fences that can
be installed on your premises depending on the set up of your
property and your necessary security requirements. There are
wall top electric fences which is electric fencing mounted
to the top of an existing wall or fence around your property.
The second option is a freestanding electric fence which is
constructed from scratch and the fence is electrified from
the top to the bottom. Freestanding electric fences are popular
on small holdings as well as gem farms.
Added benefits of electric fences
The biggest and most important benefit of electric fences is that you are ensured of greater security. These fences
are also beneficial as they reduce the frequency of false
alarms and improve the physical barrier of your premises.
The alarm that goes off when the electric fences are cut or
tampered with act as an early detection system and warns you
of possible intruders. If you are not at your Home or business
the fences can be monitored by your local armed response unit.
An added extra with your electric fences is that a strobe
light can be fitted onto your property to indicate that the
alarm went off, this light will continue to flash until such
time that it is switched off.
