An electrified security fence connected to an alarm system is an essential part of a comprehensive layered security solution for any business premises.
Electric fencing has been proven to successfully act as a psychological deterrent to burglars, and has been known to delay intruders from breaching a perimeter. Additionally, it can serve as an early warning system to ensure maximum security.
Forming one of your first lines of defence, electric fencing for business should be zoned and synced with the business alarm system. This will provide an early warning that will set off the alarm should an intruder tamper with the fence, and identified zones will indicate location on larger sites. A blaring siren draws attention to suspicious activity and also buys time by signalling their presence before they gain entry to the premises.
While the fundamentals of electric fencing for business remain the same, there are many factors to consider for optimal installation. Variables such as the number of strands, the distance between the strands, the length and number of zones, and the integration with other types of fencing or walls are determined by the distinctive requirements of individual clients.
The first step is for one of our accredited security specialists to conduct a free assessment of the business premises. This will ensure that each of our electric fence installations are uniquely designed to meet the needs of our individual business clients.
By conducting regular inspections on the fence you will be able to extend its lifespan. Cutting back any overgrown foliage, keeping a special eye out for damage on the insulators, and checking for broken or corroded wires, could contribute to lower maintenance expenses in the long run.
Take that extra security measure to protect your perimeter with electric fencing for business.
