If you want to secure your property against potential intruders, you can’t beat the protection and peace of mind you get from electric fences. They’re your first line of defense, and will deter, detect, and delay those that threaten your business, your assets, and your property.
Electric fences use non-lethal electric shocks that will stop unwanted intruders from climbing the fence, making them a safer choice than a potentially dangerous barbed wire fence. An electric perimeter security fence can come in several styles and sizes, depending on your needs. If you want to safeguard your property with an electric fence, here are some factors to consider.
Electric Fence is a Physical and Psychological Deterrent
Electric fences can piggyback on an existing fence, function on top of a wall, or stand alone as a main perimeter barrier. Wall tops and stand-alone electric fences are especially good at acting as physical deterrents, because their height and imposing presence will discourage unwanted visitors from going any further.
Regardless of the fence’s physical presence, the threat of electric shock acts as a psychological deterrent against trespassers and intruders. If the sign on the fencing advertising its voltage doesn’t deter intruders, the experience of the electric shock will. The voltage intensity can be adjusted according to your security needs, but the shocks are always regulated to be safe while also being short, sharp, and unpleasant.
Select an Electric Fence with Alarm Monitoring
If an intruder attempts to climb the fence or cut the fence wires, there should be an immediate alarm triggered. Some companies use alarm monitoring that includes a log of the times and dates when the security system is armed, disarmed, or sets off an alarm.
Depending on your security needs, you may want to pair your electric fence with cameras, security lighting, imaging systems, intruder alarms, and other alarm monitoring systems.
The Right Electric Security Fence Includes Access Control
You should be able to configure your electric perimeter security fence to fit your needs. A fully integrated access control system allows you to manage and monitor the functionality of your fence. Everything that happens on your property is communicated in real time to control system operators, who can provide quick response to breaches and other security threats. This puts you in command of your security system, supported by security and site management solutions.
Make Sure Your Electric Security Fence is Safely Installed
To get the most out of your security fence, its installation is best left to the experts. If an electric fence doesn’t have a good grounding source, you run the risk of stray voltage. They should be installed away from hazardous facilities and protected against power fluxes with a surge protector.
