Advice on Usage of Wall Toppings
By law a property owner or manager must prevent intrusion to any area or equipment where a person can be injured. Also by law an innocent or unsuspecting person cannot be injured by a deterrent which they contact accidentally or unexpectedly it is also highly illegal to place a danger where an intruder is lured into injuring himself (entrapment).
How does one reconcile these two legal positions?
Firstly any of these products must be installed in a clear and obvious position. They should be fixed in a position where a casual passer-by cannot come in contact with them. As a general rule we believe that any deterrent placed in a clear and obvious position at a height of at least 2100mm above ground will be fully legally complaint. We would also recommend that where appropriate signs highlighting the deterrents presence and nature should be fixed. We can provide appropriate signage.

The fixing detail to the post is totally dependent on the structural stability of the wall, along with the construction of the fence to be fixed to it.Considerations such as fence weight, height, wall structure and wind loading all have to be factored in when calculating the post section and fixing detail. Fixing detail can be by means of independent foundation or bolt and baseplate detail fixed directly to the wall or structure.
