The full perimeter of the industrial area is fenced in by modern technology, creating a "see-through wall" of wire mesh standing three metres tall. The fencing-off was done as a security measure, to keep unwanted elements out as a means to curb crime perpetrated in the area.

The settlement borders the N5 national road leading to the KwaZulu Natala coast, and is situated just north of the Sterkfontein Dam, a major water reservoir and the second largest dam in South Africa.
