Does your private property need a security fence?

11th February 2016

You may associate security fencing with major events and large businesses. However, security fencing can also be used to secure residences and privately-owned properties. If you’re worried about the security of your home or any other properties that you might own, security fencing may be the appropriate solution for you. Of course, we understand that having security fencing installed is a big decision. Luckily, the decision doesn’t have to be hard to make: there are three simple factors you should consider when deciding if a property really requires secure fencing.

1. Location

Sadly, some areas are more downtrodden and prone to crime than others. If your property is in an area where many burglaries and home invasions have taken place, it is advisable to secure it using security fencing. Whether you live there yourself or rent the property to other individuals, protecting the residence from unwanted guests is important. Here at Zaun, we can provide perimeter fencing with whatever type of pedestrian or vehicle access you or your tenants require, so there’s no need to worry about whether you’ll be able to access the property.

2. History

Has your property suffered any break-ins before? If so, burglars and vandals may be emboldened and try to break in again in future. Installing security fencing is a simple and effective solution to this problem. The more times your property has been broken into, the more urgently you need to install security fencing. After all, you don’t want your property to become a regular target for local hoodlums.

3. Value

If your property is precious, it may look like a tempting target to criminals and malfeasants. What’s more, when a high-value property is stolen from or vandalised, the cost to fix it or replace the stolen goods is likely to be significant. Therefore, while protecting all your lower-value properties may not be necessary, you should always place security fencing around any high-value properties.

Here at Zaun, we understand that homes and residencies need as much protection as major events and businesses. If your private properties need the level of security that only perimeter fencing can deliver, contact us ASAP.
