Due to two recent events, palisade fencing was vaulted into the news more than could have been predicted, and on both occasions it was a case of directly benefiting from others’ misfortune. It never ceases to amaze one when Watchdog or Rogue Traders is aired, the lengths the BBC go to in order to unearth the companies and those that are in business purely to rip people off.
This is most commonly exerted onto vulnerable people and the elderly are the biggest victims of rip-off merchants who charge a fortune to repair a small fault or, worse still, those who invent a fault to bleed people dry of their retirement money or savings. How does this come back to palisade fencing and benefiting from negative press though?
Palisade Security Fencing
A recent episode of Watchdog focused on the great car scam in which companies are selling clocked vehicles (disconnecting speedometers so that the miles recorded are totally different to actual mileage). They are also flogging cars that are not roadworthy or ones that are ‘cut and shut’ (where two or more vehicles have been welded together to create a new model).
When Watchdog caught up with the companies in question, along with some seriously unhappy customers, angry punters were trying to drive into the gates of the business. However it was not the ‘gates’ they were trying to get through but palisade security fencing, a term which was blurted out so often in the heated conversations you could not help but Google the phrase to see just what they were talking about. It was also clear the benefits that this type of fencing security brings to a premises.
Palisade Fencing could Prevent Break-Ins
The second instance in which palisade fencing indirectly came out smelling of roses in the face of adversity was when a conversation was overheard in a local Manchester drinking establishment when a proprietor was the unfortunate victim of a break-in to their computer business. The police were called and the MD arrived at the scene to actually witness the culprits breaking into his property. The police rang back to state that they were busy with other incidents and did not arrive until morning, by which point over £100K of equipment had been taken.
One of the listening groups sympathized heavily with the victim and recalled his own misfortune in exactly the same situation and commented that his answer to prevent this happening in future was to install the very best in palisade fencing, or high security “D” section palisade fencing to give it its full name.
Who would have thought in these distressing situations that one product could witness such a spike in inquiries. It just goes to show that any PR is better than no PR. For total peace of mind regarding your business or home, palisade fencing is a consideration must.
