An electric fence is unquestionably the wiser, safer choice when compared to a traditional fence.
Electric fencing is an excellent perimeter deterrent when properly installed. It serves as a perimeter alarm system as well as a physical barrier to keep intruders out of the property.
As one of your first lines of defense, commercial electric fencing should be zoned and synced with the business alarm system. If an intruder tampers with the fence, an early warning signal will be sent, and identified zones will indicate location on larger sites.
While the fundamentals of commercial electric fencing remain the same, there are numerous factors to consider for optimal installation. 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 all determined by the specific needs of each client.

In a typical security setup, electric fencing is regarded as the first line of defense. When touched, it creates a physical barrier that sets off an alarm and delivers a 10,000-volt shock. By monitoring the return voltage to the energiser, the electric fence detects an alarm. The energiser will sound an alarm if the fence voltage falls below a predetermined level, whether due to wire cuts or blankets thrown over the fence.
Electric fencing can be installed as a full height or wall top fence, making climbing or cutting impossible.
Globally, there is a growing need for increased security to deter intruders. Whereas in the past, a security fence was simply a passive physical barrier, the reality of today’s world requires the use of an active intrusion detection system that responds to any intrusion attempts, preventing or delaying intruder access, and is not reliant on human surveillance.
The Deter, Detect, and Delay approach is commonly used when designing these physical security systems, and the Electric Fence meets all three.
