Farms in Cornwall are prime target for thieves

product-fencing Farms in Cornwall are prime target for thieves Farmers in Cornwall seem to be plagued by a wave of rural crime, mostly thefts, which leads to higher levels of concern and stress, not to mention significant financial losses.

In fact, according to a report in the local media, new research reveals the total cost of rural crime in the Duchy was nearly half a million pounds last year.

One farmer declares that he has had metal feed troughs, fencing posts and tools stolen. And the biggest problem, apart from the actual losses, of course, is represented by insurance premiums, that go up in areas plagued by rural thefts. "Insurance levels are rising because of quite a lot of theft. You can’t keep claiming off the insurance for small scale things and increasingly then you have to invest in security on the farm – maybe CCTV” said the farmer.

Metal fences represent a very cost-effective initial line of defence against trespassers but also a suitable way of protecting members of public against potentially dangerous activities on a site. Car Park Barriers & Turnstiles offers complete metal fencing solutions, made from durable steel and featuring pre-welded panels with internal connectors that make the metal fencing as vandal-proof as possible.
