learn about our history
remember the past
Fences & Guards was established in 1965 as a division of Premier Wire & Steel (Pty) Ltd to handle the manufacture, sales and installation of fencing and related products.
In December 1982 the company was officially registered as Fences & Guards (Pty) Ltd after a management buy-out by the present directors of the company.
During the early 80’s, the need for enhanced perimeter security measures was rapidly growing, and it was decided to differentiate between two technologies: that of conventional fencing and electronically enhanced security fencing.
“FANG” was born. This acronym of Fences & Guards has grown from its basic humble beginning to a company that not only provides the highest quality perimeter security system hardware internationally, but one that has also developed the most advanced computerized, centralized security management system (Fang CSMS).
In 2010 Fang Fences & Guards (Pty) Ltd was registered and it was formulated that Fang will focus all its resources on turnkey security infrastructure design and implementation comprising electrified fencing & conventional fencing, CCTV, access control and communication networks that support the above. Thus the next chapter in our history was opened.

electrified fence control systems & Fang CSMS
CCTV is a well established yet still developing technology-in both the technical components and integration into systems with specific objectives. The most measurable effect of CCTV is not on crime prevention as such, but on detection and prosecution of alleged criminals. The success rate of prosecution is direct related to the availability and quality of the CCTV footage.
All the above systems create a security infrastructure platform that enables an organization to have control of their assets; physical, human and intellectual, and thereby increase their effectiveness and profitability.
We design and install CCTV systems, complete access control systems and supporting communication network and power reticulation.
