In addition, we have included a few commercial security applications which you can also apply to your own home security arrangements.

some general home security advice and security barriers

Houses are most vulnerable at the rear. Burglars can be quite athletic and good at climbing fences. However, if a two metre fence is topped with a 30-45cms of weak trellising, the burglar will have great difficulty climbing it without risking being seen and breaking the trellis. The noise involved and the risk of injury is very likely to put them off.

Using plants as a fence topping is another option, for example a climbing rose.

Wooden gates can be easy for thieves to climb, covering cross members with panel security barriers can make life more difficult for criminals by removing an obvious foothold.

Ornamental iron gates are more difficult to climb and intruders can be seen through them. It's a good idea to have two locks on a gate, for example a padlock and padlock bar plus a barrel bolt at the bottom.

In order to protect vehicles on your drive, security barriers such as collapsible posts can be installed. A key enables you to pull these up, push them back down to ground level and lock them into place.
