With crime being a reality in South Africa, security products can be seen on many commercial and residential properties. From CCTV cameras to perimeter beams, these products help to secure your property and keep you and your family safe. Security fencing has become very popular in Pretoria and it is an effective way of keeping intruders out of your home, thereby reducing the possibility of theft and property damage.
When it comes to security fencing, there are several options to choose from. Depending on the type of property you want to secure, you will need a specific product and installation type. The fence around your property is the first area an intruder will try to cross, It is therefore crucial that your first line of defence starts with your wall, palisade or fence. An energiser for domestic fences uses 220 volts of power, but generates 9 900 volts of non-lethal pulses. This will not kill someone, but definitely scare them off. These energisers are fitted with batteries, so that your electric fence will always be up and running, even during a blackout. Because electricity should be used in moderation, the consumption used by your electric fence is very low.
Security Fencing from Tandem Security
The Magnum Simplex 8 Joule is a domestic energiser that carries a one year warrantee, which includes lightning damage. A service exchange unit is also available to repair units on site, which means that you do not have to go without protection while you wait for someone to repair your fence. When it comes to security fencing, industrial and commercial properties will require larger energisers since these properties are bigger in size. Keep in mind that industrial areas will also need a higher level of security and therefore, zoning is recommended. With a zoned area, you will be able to pin-point more accurately where the problem is located and in the event of a short, the whole fence will not be at risk. If the property is not zoned, the whole fence will be compromised, making it so much easier for intruders to enter.
There are different types of electrical fences available, depending your security requirements. Free standing fences are usually installed on small holdings, government properties, military installations and game farms. The voltage of these fences is just enough to scare wandering animals, but is not lethal. Another popular benefit of electrical fencing is that it can be installed in addition to existing features like walls, palisades, sliding gates and precast walls. You will be able to keep the current structure in place, while adding additional security measures in the form of an electric fence.
