Err, yes, it would. Just treat the sections above and below the fold
as separate elements, or just put the anti-climb stuff above the fold.

I'd think 5' panels would be too short to be useful.

Treat the anti-climb panels as a place to put art.

Or put your tower on the roof.

   Unfortunately some of those ideas do not work for a self-supporting 72 ft. 
fold over tower, folding over at the 4 ft. level (Heights Tower) the only thing 
I think that would work well would be a 6-8 ft. fence surrounding tower base 
with 2-3 inch metal post for corners and gate. Gate situated where when open 
tower will fold in space opening and when not folded over, gate kept locked 
with padlock. Scaling fence next to impossible unless using ladder. Place no 
trespassing signs and high voltage sign on sides of fence and plant nice 
shrubbery around fence to please xyl. Total cost can be reduced by buying all 
the stuff at home depot or Lowe's. All post placed in concrete filled holes.

   Will be installing tower this fall with fence, when setup completed, will 
make pic available for viewing.

   Seems like plenty of trouble to go through, but I have 6 grandchildren ages 
2 months thru 3 years old. Cost inconsequential!
