Anti-Climbing Measures You Should Consider for Your Property

Anti-Climbing Measures You Should Consider for Your Property

Anti-climbing measures can greatly compliment your custom louvers and help improve perimeter security.

If you are dealing with securing a commercial facility, security is something you must take seriously. There are many different options for you to look into, including louvers, which are excellent at deterring crime and preventing anyone from being able to enter your property. That being said, you might want to beef up your security measures just a bit to make sure that you are doing everything in your power to keep your building safe and secure. This might be required from specific industries, especially those that deal with a lot of sensitive information that cannot be breached. Read on to learn about some anti-climbing measures that could greatly compliment your custom louvers and help improve perimeter security in general.

Defensive Wires

Whether you are using a razor or barbed wire, this is usually an option used in many industrial settings. It might not always be feasible depending on your louver layout, but where suitable, razor or barbed wire can be very effective. You also have to make sure you are taking a look at all local regulations. That said, defensive wiring is usually only suitable for extremely industrial areas and is not the most aesthetically pleasing defensive appliance. If you are not worried about anyone seeing your louvers or fence and just want something useful, defensive wires could be a good option for you.

Creative and Unique Plants

On the opposite end of the spectrum, you have plants. Nature can be a beneficial way of discouraging people and is also effective at keeping aesthetics up to par. If your facility is very visible and you have multiple visitors or guests coming by, you might want to look into the right kinds of shrubbery and plants. There’s plenty of bushes, shrubs, and even vines out there that grow big thorns and help discourage anybody from trying to get over your custom louvers. Because it is a natural option, this is sometimes favorable as it presents less of a risk to wildlife, so it is an ideal choice if your business is around nature.


Manufactured spikes are not always ideal, especially not against somebody who really knows what they are doing. That said, it can help cut down on crimes of opportunity and act as a reliable deterrent. There’s plenty of extended, angled spike options that can go a long way in improving the security of a building and can be applied greatly to both louvers or fences. Consider any of these anti-climbing measures to improve your property’s security.
