All business owners want to keep their property safe and secure. To do this, you can choose from a variety of commercial fencing types depending on your requirements.
At LA Fencing Contractors Ltd we specialise in commercial fencing for businesses in Stafford and the surrounding area. In this week s blog, we discuss the types of barriers available and their advantages.
If durability and longevity are your priorities then steel or aluminium for the boundaries of your commercial site are fantastic options. They do not need much maintenance and can be colour treated for a customised appearance.
Two choices of design for steel and aluminium fencing that are popular include Paladin and Palisade. Paladin boundaries offer protection against intruders climbing or cutting through to gain access to your site. Palisade is a versatile option that is suitable for all kinds of commercial sites and is resistant to vandalism.
The most common type of fencing for commercial sites is chain-link. With the possible add-ons of barbed wire and slats for wind reduction and privacy, it is a very versatile option.
The material is durable and long-lasting. It can have a galvanised coating making it weather and rust-resistant. Alternatively, a vinyl or powder-coated layer creates a weatherproof veneer that is fully colour-customisable.
Apart from checking now and again for loose bolts or nuts, there is little to no ongoing maintenance required. Chain-link designs are suitable for a range of commercial sites and can also be installed indoors, for example as boundaries around machinery.
While being a popular choice for residential homes, wooden fencing can also be an effective choice for commercial properties. Available in a range of types of wood including pine and cedar, it is a versatile and environmentally friendly option. Some designs to choose from include:
- Tongue and Groove
- Spindle Picket
- Lattice and Spindle
- Vertical Board
Solid timber planks provide properties with privacy and can be built to whatever height you require. Maintenance is required to keep the material in a good condition, however with one fresh coat of paint or stain every 12 months the fencing will last a long time.
Enhance Your Site Security
The main purpose of commercial fencing is often security. Alongside lighting and signage, it acts as a deterrent for intruders and many designs are difficult to cut through or climb easily.
The type of barriers that you decide to install around your property depends on the requirements of the site. Additional security may be desired such as wardens and guard dogs, CCTV and motion sensors.
Alongside the barriers, you can also install electric gates so you have more access control. With this, you will know who is at your property, why and for how long.
