Why Steel Fencing Provides Superior Security

Installing a steel boundary fence might seem like a quick shortcut to security. While it is true that such fencing is far less expensive and faster to install than things like palisade fencing or brick walls, there are several other critical security benefits that fencing solutions such as our EasyView fences can provide.

Physical Barrier

The physical barrier that a fence provides makes it much more difficult for intruders to get onto your property in the first place, providing a first line of defense against break-ins. It makes it just as hard for criminals to get out again as well, making it difficult for them to escape quickly ‒ particularly if they’re carrying stolen goods. 

Psychological Barrier

A good quality, robust fence can act as a strong deterrent to would-be intruders, making them think twice before attempting a break-in. Generally, criminals casing houses for break-ins will avoid those with fences because it makes it more difficult for them. They would rather go for something a little easier.

A quality fence such as an EasyView fence sends the message that the property is well protected, which means that they will be more likely to get caught should they attempt anything. The fear of getting caught is more likely to deter them from trying.

Good Visibility

Fences have the dual advantage of being a physical barrier that also allows for unfettered visibility in and out of the property. This makes it easier for neighbours, passers-by and patrolling security vehicles to see if someone is attempting to break into the house. Such naked exposure to the world around them is another powerful deterrent for potential intruders, who would prefer to have more privacy for their nefarious deeds.

Moreover, if you have a dog on the property, the fence will allow the dog to see intruders in advance and raise the alarm early on. The visibility that a fence affords provides a better chance of intervention before the break-in can take place.

Enhanced Security Solutions

Fence solutions such as the EasyView can be easily equipped with added security features such as CCTV cameras, alarms and motion sensors, which can significantly enhance the level of protection available for your property. High-tech cameras, such as our Lymeta & Co 4MP wire-free security camera, can aid in identifying and catching intruders, while also providing added peace of mind.

When you purchase a fencing solution from Betafence, it is easy to simply add the security camera feature as an extra measure to prevent break-ins and assist law enforcement in the identification and capture of criminals.
