Fence Toppings -The Final Nail for Property Intrusion Attempts

Fence Toppings -The Final Nail for Property Intrusion Attempts

Your existing physical perimeter fence is generally your first and strongest line of defence against intruders and potential security breaches. However, installing a towering fence structure along your perimeter zone may be insufficient. This is where additional fence toppings become a valuable property investment to enhance its effectiveness.  
With innovation in fence design comes a change of strategy by criminals and opportunists. It falls on the custodians of properties to ensure that your physical perimeter can nullify changing threats, ensuring that your property remains secure and inaccessible to unauthorised groups or individuals.  
In this article, we outline the motivation for entities to invest in fence toppings to enhance perimeter security while presenting Shark Tooth and Castle Spike as industry-leading security solutions to fortify your fence and deter unwanted guests.  

The Extra Nail in Securing Your Prized Assets 

While standard fencing structures, such as barbed wire or palisade may act as a basic deterrent, they are still unlikely to discourage determined intruders who are willing to cut through it. The installation of  fence toppings adds another layer of protection to your perimeter. Designed to be intimidating, they not only present a physical barrier but also act as an effective psychological deterrence. Potential intruders are far less likely to attempt to breach a fence fitted with imposing spikes on top due to the obvious risk of serious injury. Hence, the unsightly and formidable presence of fence spikes can deter the majority of unwanted guests to tempt fate!  

While fence spikes come at an extra expense, it should be noted that the cost of this additional layer of physical perimeter protection is far less than that of a security breach, both financially and reputationally.
