Are you planning on hosting a large-scale private event, such as a wedding or a group meeting? If so, you may need to invest in security fencing to protect your event. Regrettably, holding events in certain locales can be risky, due to high crime rates or (sometimes) simple public nosiness. In some cases, investing in security fencing is simply the sensible choice. You may even wish to add extra security measures to support your fencing. However, as a private individual with a limited budget, you may wish to do this in a cost-effective way. That’s why we’ve come up with three simple ways you can boost the security of your perimeter fencing affordably.
Fence toppings can be purchased or rented very cheaply: they can be added to the top of many perimeter fences in order to make it even more difficult for trespassers to climb over them. They range from barbed wire to smaller, more discreet spikes, so you can choose the style of fence topping that suits you.
Hiring someone to guard the entrance to your event throughout its duration is a simple but effective way of increasing your security. Perimeter guards or doormen act as a very effective deterrent against would-be trespassers. What’s more, you can ask them to walk around the perimeter every so often and check that none your fencing panels have been moved or damaged. This means you will be alerted as soon as possible if a problem does occur.
If a trespasser does somehow make it past your security fencing, it may be hard to spot them. However, if you simply ask your guests to adopt a dress code to attend your event, anybody who isn’t supposed to be there will be very noticeable. Insisting on a dress code may not affect your perimeter fencing, but it is a good fall-back security measure. What’s more, it’s completely free!
Here at Zaun, we can provide you with great-quality high security fencing and fence toppings. However, you will have to provide your own doormen and dress codes.
