3 benefits of using electric fence security


Selecting the right type of fencing to secure your business’ property is a significant undertaking. Having put so much of your hard work into creating the best possible version of your business that you can, it can be devastating to see it all go to waste due to an act of theft or criminal activity. Therefore, utilising an electric fence security system can greatly benefit your valuable property assets. With that in mind, here are just a few benefits of using electric fencing to secure your business.

1. deter, detect and delay

Electric fence security can be invaluable in simply deterring potential intruders from even attempting to break into your property. Most criminals will pass your business by and look for an easier target. However, if they attempt to climb the fence, they will receive a non-lethal shock that would delay their entry and hopefully deter them even further. Additionally, when electric fence security is used in combination with other high-tech alarm systems, you will have the ability to detect intruders before they get anywhere near your property and assets.

2. Simple installation

Even though it is always recommended that electric fence security is installed by an expert, electric fences are notorious for being easy to install and maintain. In addition, they can be installed on top of or parallel to existing fence structures. Finally, as they are typically lighter than traditional fence systems, they are much easier to transport.

3. Lower maintenance costs

Electric fences are typically made of aluminium or steel and have a specially designed coating that prevents rusting. This means you do not need to worry about the wear and tear caused by precipitation, and there’s no need to spend time and money painting or re-staining the fence, as you would have to do with a wooden fence structure. This all leads to lower maintenance costs, an obvious benefit to your business. The only maintenance required is occasionally checking that the wires contain adequate voltage, ensuring that the connections are secure, and preventing unwanted objects from touching the fence.
