For certain crimes, such as murder, robbery and rape, the official figures are notoriously unreliable, because of massive underreporting to the police, and bearing in mind that South Africa is a top murder country, it makes sense that South Africans with income to spare will spend more of it on home security, and free standing electric fences can go a long way in restoring some sense of peace when we go to sleep at night.

Free standing electric fences are just large open circuits waiting to be closed. The electric fence energizer or charger sends a high voltage pulse of electric energy through the wire at short intervals, usually between one and two seconds. The circuit is closed when an intruder, standing on the ground, touches the fence. The electric energy in the fence wire flows from the fence, through the thug’s body and to the ground causing him to be shocked. Tampering with the fence results in an alarm activation.

The structure of free standing electric fences must be of high quality material and strong enough to keep intruders out. High-tensile, smooth wire, electric fencing is the fastest and most reliable fence. Gone are the days of wires breaking, chargers starting fires, wet vegetation shorting out the fence and other troubles.

Free standing electric fences are built strong from the top to the bottom with all the flexibility and performance you demand, and can be integrated with your access control system. As security is a key issue for many industrial and commercial premises today; perimeter fencing is used very effectively to help with residential security, factories, schools and car park security and others.

Electric fences require little maintenance but should be checked regularly. With our extensive knowledge and experience in the security industry , we at Tandem have provided effective and reliable free standing electric fences for commercial and private applications for many years.
