What is clear view / clearview / clearvu fencing?

The reference to “CLEAR VIEW” is based on the transparent aesthetic of the barrier that is presented in the finished application of the fencing product.

The names such as ClearVu, ThruView, CThru and so on, are exactly that, names that manufacturers have named and referenced their range of products such as ClearVu which is a registered trademark name of a patented range of products by a specific manufacturer…for the rest, they are names adopted by distribution channel on-sellers for various manufacturers or importers of this product type…

It is to be noted, the brand name that stands proud of the crowd is Vi-guarD sanctuary defined by Vi-biZ for so many reasons –

  • The highest technical/quality specification in the industry - verifiable

  • ISO accredited factory and management system

  • SABS Quality Management system, with mark bearing product range

  • 100% South African

  • Competitive pricing

  • Full turn-key project services, from design to installation…

  • 10 Year guarantee on all manufactured product

Why was such a product designed, a transparent barrier?

The reasons for such design criteria are numerous –

  • Transparent barriers do not block aesthetically pleasing views, while providing a needed barrier…

  • Security… it is important to be able to see out, where potential perpetrators may be up to mischief, as it is important to be able to see into a premise, in view of not arriving at your destination and being surprised by an unauthorised visit or invasion, as well as law and security services being able to view a threatening occurrence…

  • In commercial applications, such as the likes of motor vehicle dealerships can display their wares behind a protective barrier, securing their products and assets while still advertising…

 

“ONES IMAGINATION FORMS THE LIMIT TO THIS PRODUCT IN APPLICATION…”

Why would I choose this type of fencing barrier over “old school familiars” such as diamond mesh, palisade and the such?

There are so many responses and answers to this question, but serious consideration has led me here –

  • Barriers of every shape, size and form have been part of the civilizing evolvement of humans since the beginning of time, primarily to secure a given site of occupation from predators of every size, shape and form…and even in the sophistication of our current form, as hard as we work to secure our environment from predatory presence, predators work as hard at devising means of circumventing these security barriers AND that is the simplicity of the answer to this question, i.e. the innovative design, manufacturing technology and materials used in the creation of this product type are of a level of sophistication that far exceed fencing products of yesteryear and prove to be INTRUSION RESISTANT to the highest level (acetylene cutting torches or robust high speed grinding disc tools required to penetrate this barrier type verse a light ball-pean hammer for palisade intrusion and light hand side-cutter for diamond mesh). AAaaahh and before I forget, a rubber mat and wooden stick to by-pass electric fences…!

There appears to be so many sources of supply for this TRANSPARENT BARRIER type fencing product…

how do I choose the correct supplier and product type for my application?

A very simple and accurate response is –

  • By choosing Vi-biZ and the Vi-guarD brand of products you will be guided through the entire process of meeting with your projects requirements in their entirety, be they the appropriate product kit material supply only or a full turn-key project from design to product and the installation thereof, always meeting with your budgetary constraints and achieving your reasonably specified time-lines for satisfactory completion …

But I guess that is a biased response, so let’s get to answering your question objectively –

  • Local manufacturers should always prove to be a first choice over fully imported product, for the following reasons –

  • Besides “local being lekker”, it will be easily established, that reputable local manufacturers provide a limited extended guarantee on all their manufactured products, usually similar to or the same as the Vi-guarD product range, i.e. 10 years…

  • Once you start asking questions of suppliers of fully imported product, it will rapidly become apparent that they usually do not warrant and / or guarantee the product they’re selling, their fencing products are discreetly inserted among their unrelated products that may be locally produced in instances and you only establish this when you have a claim against poor quality etc…(wouldn’t it be nice if it was a requirement for these suppliers to state up front that their product is not warranted or guaranteed)

  •  Criteria that has been apparent on fully imported product coming into South Africa has been –

  • Generic statement of on-seller of fully imported product, "We are unable to supply you right now, your purchase requirements are still on the water" (in a container on a container ship…AND this is usually the ships fault…”do excuse my sarcasm”)

  • The status quo in so many instances, seem to be that excess non-conforming product is being “dumped” here locally at extremely competitive pricing levels from points of supply origin being either India and China

  • These products appear to meet with quality specifications, but usually are coated, either with steel paint or polyester powder, hiding the actual wire, which has in instances proven to be lightly coated (class C) galvinized mild steel wire ... NOT high tensile wire which has an acceptable 400 - 700 Mpa rating, including heavy galvinized class A coat, i.e. the non-conforming material has similar qualities to diamond mesh fence wire, which you can literally cut through with a light side-cutter tool.

  • In the Afrikaans language there is a nice saying that goes like this, “goed koop kan duur koop wees…” roughly interpreted as, “ buying cheaply can be an expensive experience…” OVER AND ABOVE supporting local manufacturers has an immense social impact on the well being and employment of many AND AS WE ALL KNOW, OUR ECONOMY AND COUNTRY DESPARATELY NEEDS THIS…
