Your home should still be your castle


In the olden days, castles were protected by moats and high walls. Centuries later, life has changed dramatically but the fundamental concept of your home being your castle hasn’t. Indeed, in some regions of the world there is a law known as the ‘Castle Doctrine’ which essentially states that one’s residence is a place of protection. But just as a castle needs its walls and moats, so does your home need good security in place.

This is where Margate Engineering, established more than half a century ago, really shines. Instead of high walls, the company offers (literally) cutting edge fencing such as palisade that protects your home beautifully and instead of moats there’s automated driveway gates and burglar guards and a host of other security solutions. Managing Director Geoff Howard-Tripp says, “Having a fence and an automated gate is a very good idea for your property because it’s your first line of defence. And when you get to the actual house, even when an ordinary window or door is closed, it generally takes very little effort for the average thief to pry them open. But properly installed security gates and burglar guards will offer serious protection against such intrusions. Key components of this include the hot-dip galvanising process which guarantees strength and durability in the corrosive local climate as well as a careful, solid installation.”

Margate Engineering also offers other security solutions such as roller shutter doors and custom-made garage doors. Visit their workshops and showroom in Manaba Beach or learn more on their website at www.margateengineering.co.za

 

 



Keeping your home secure. Darryl Howard-Tripp demonstrates the strength of fence poles installed by Margate Engineering at a South Coast palisade installation. They are always secured in a deep, concrete-filled hole with special attention paid to stay-posts and corner posts.
