A common place that intruders gain access to a home is over a wall or fence. While it’s difficult to stop intruders from climbing a garden wall or fence, especially if they come prepared, a strong deterrence is the addition of anti-climb security measures.
Anti-climb measures can take many forms. From defensive shrubs and trees placed next to a wall, to extended battens attached to the top of a fence. But with so many options, choosing the right one can be tricky.
The key is choosing the right security measure that will suit your wall or fence specifically. This means analysing where potential break-ins could occur and choosing a security feature that will work well with the other features near by. For example, if you already have a strong fence, then extending it will be much more secure. However if that fence is quite weak in its construction, then a completely new fence will be a better option.
