Security fences protect property and ward off invaders.
Security fencing, whether electrical or not, is the device capable of protecting the entire perimeter of a property. Oswaldo Oggiam, marketing director of ABESE, Brazilian Association of Electronic Security Systems Companies, explains that only by analyzing the security project and the plan of the property can it indicate the most appropriate type of fence and the places for its installation.
“It is not recommended, for example, the use of fences with shock in places of leisure where it is known that there will be children who may for some reason access the walls. In the same way, in places where there is a lot of vegetation the maintenance of this type of fence will be more constant “, observes the ABESE direct.
The market provides electrified fences that are connected to the residence alarm system and monitored 24 hours. When the wire is broken they trigger a siren on site and alert the remote operations center. Oswaldo comments that there are alternatives without shock, also monitored full time. It is also possible to find more robust, steel and electrified fences, which release shocks when touched, and may or may not be connected to the security system via SecurityPology. Another option is the sharp fences, called “concertinas”, normally used only as a physical barrier, without shock or monitoring.
Mario Ecclissi Junior, commercial systems electronics consultant for Grupo Pro Security, says that security fences can be applied and combined in different ways with other devices, including infrared sensors. “Fences can be used with other devices as long as a detailed site assessment is carried out, verifying the actual need of the customer, not just selling equipment,” he argues. It also clarifies that fencing is not indicated when the height of the wall is less than 2.2 meters.
For Oswaldo Oggiam, one of the advantages of fences, especially those of pulsative shock, is that protection is performed even when the house’s internal alarm system is deactivated. “Residential houses and condominiums surrounded by walls with fences allow residents to move through gardens, backyards and patios without being directly exposed to possible fringes,” he points out.
