Electric fencing

Why should I have electric fencing installed?

This is a question that few living in Johannesburg need to ask. Crime is on the increase throughout the country, especially in the big cities. Protecting yourself has become a necessity. If you don’t have enough reasons to invest in an electric fence, here are a few more:

  • Electric fencing not only gives a shock but also acts as an outdoor warning system. The system is capable of giving an audible warning when wires are cut or touched together.
  • You are able to connect your electric fencing to your security company radio resulting in a quick response time.
  • Having an electric fence is a physical deterrent and adds height to your wall in a cost-effective way.
  • Freestanding electric fencing not only acts as a security system but also keeps in livestock or game by acting as a physical barrier.
  • Finally, electric fencing is affordable to install and it is also easy to maintain if installed correctly.

Certification and compliance

Saxmoore Services issues a compliance certificate with all installations. In order to comply with the regulations, a certified installer must install your electric fence. If neglect to do this your insurance will not cover you in the event of a robbery. Furthermore, you will not be able to sell your home if your electric fence is not compliant. To make sure that your electric fence will meet the various requirements choose an electric fencing company that has a compliance certificate. Saxmoore services is a certified electric fence installer that is recognized by and registered with the Department of Labour.

Don’t be on the wrong side of the fence, instead, use an electric fencing company that is compliant with the law.

  • Regulation 12 of the Electrical Machinery Regulations, 2011 imposes an obligation on the user of an electric fence system to have a certificate of compliance. (reference Occupational Health and Safety Act 85).
  • This does not apply to an electric fence system in existence prior to 1 October 2012.
  • The electric fence system certificate is separate from an electrical compliance certificate. This is an additional requirement if the property has an electric fence system.
  • An electric fence compliance certificate is required upon change of ownership of a property as well as newly installed or modified electric fences.
  • It is thus imperative to ensure that the electric fence installer is registered with the Department of Labour.
