We pride ourselves on specialising in electric fencing in Durban and can guarantee a cost effective solution for all your security requirements for your personal property as well as industry related premises in Durban.



Cost savings of an electric fence are significant when compared to other fencing options such as wood, rail, vinyl, woven wire or barbed wire in the security industry in Durban.

Less metal wire is needed and fewer posts are needed which is where most of the cost for an electric fence system is generated.


Charged fence systems, also known as electric fence systems, provide a safe alternative to woven and barbed wire fences.

A pulsed electrical current is sent along the fence wire, at about one pulse per second, from an electric fence charger, which is also known as an energizer.

These short electrical pulses produce short and sharp but safe shocks.

There are three main advantages of an electric fence installation:

  • The visual appearance
  • The shock capacity
  • The alarm given


When you install a good electric fence then the visual appearance will be a definite deterrent. For example if the house/property next door is not fitted with an electric fence you are at a distinct advantage.


When correctly wired by Allway security systems, electric fencing specialists in Durban, and the right size energizer installed, the shock experienced will be of such a magnitude that it would deter a normal person from trying to enter the premises.


When wired correctly the electric fence will go to an alarm when the fence is tampered with.
The electric fence will have served its purpose as an early warning device should the above occur.
Although house alarms are of importance in Durban, the advantage of a correctly installed electric fence is that:

  • either the person does not try to enter your premises, or,
  • should the alarm be sounded the person is not already in the house or building and therefore time is on your side
