The Fence Factor-you can look, but you can’t come in!

Sometimes, there’s a need for a high-security perimeter to keep intruders out and similarly keep people, animals or property safely inside.

Strength, high quality and durability are hallmarks of secure fencing solutions and Barrier Tech’s products tick all the boxes and more. A fence helps to increase security and improves the overall appearance of your property.

The leading manufacturer and installer of fencing in Zimbabwe, Barrier Tech started out in 2003 as a fence erecting company. Initially, it operated on a supply and install basis, sourcing materials from manufacturers. The company began manufacturing in 2006 with the acquisition of diamond mesh manufacturing machines and related equipment. In 2011 Barrier Tech expanded to the production of ‘Mhuka’ fence, also referred to as Square, Livestock or Field fence.

“This product has allowed the general population access to a very cheap and effective type of fencing which is easy to transport and erect in the rural areas as well as in game parks and sanctuaries with or without electric strands,” the company highlights.

The fence manufacturing company notes that as a result of its capabilities, they are ahead of the game in the fencing sector pointing out that, “we manufacture our own product, where possible, so durability and a strong product is what we aim for.

Quality and strength are often equated with steep pricing. However, Barrier Tech is very competitive in the market and aims to be the best priced fencing company.

Choosing the best fencing solution should not be a daunting task. Barrier Tech makes this undertaking easy by offering expert advisory services and pre-sale assessments. This ensures that the customer gets the right product in the first instance. Coupled with that, the enterprise offers after-sales service mentioning, “We like to maintain our product and advise on what will be next.”

Because of the sturdiness of their metal products, Barrier Tech only offers warranty on electrical products. The validity period of the warranty is six (6) months, albeit for factory faults only.

Apart from manufacturing and installation, Barrier Tech undertakes repairs as well as supplying accessories such as gate motors and infrared beams.
