New Commercial Building And Worried About Thieves? Some Fencing Options You Have

by Kent George

If you have a new commercial building for your business, you should do everything you can to protect it. If crime has gone up in your area or you are just worried about someone breaking in, there are many things you can do to beef up your security. One of these things is installing fencing. There are a variety of types of commercial fencing you can choose from with some being for aesthetic appeal while others for security. Below are two of these types so you can determine what would work best for your commercial building.

Chain Link Fencing

When choosing chain link fencing, you will find they come in a variety of gauges. The lowest number in gauges means the heavier the wire is and more secure.  Even though heavier wire will cost more money, it is the best choice for security purposes. The mesh diameter is something else to consider. Mesh is how far each diamond is from side to side. For security purposes, you want to choose a tight mesh.

The wire in a chain link fence is coated with zinc to protect the metal from rust and oxidation. If you do not want the standard grey color of chain link fence, you can have a colored PVC coating placed over the zinc. There are a variety of colors you can choose from including white, tan, brown, and black. PVC coating adds even more protection against rust. Make sure you choose a tall fence to make it harder for someone to climb up it.

Wrought Iron Fencing

Wrought iron fencing is another choice if you want security along with aesthetic appeal. During installation, you can mount the wrought iron fence by pouring concrete flush to the ground and setting the fence posts in the concrete.

When purchasing a wrought iron fence, make sure the fence is commercial grade instead of residential grade. This is because commercial grade wrought iron fences are much heavier and durable. As in chain link fencing, consider the height of the fence.

When consider the type of wrought iron fence, choose one that has rails that are spaced close together. This will make it difficult for someone to slide through the rails or stick their hands through them to try to unlock a gate.

Talk with a commercial fencing contractor in your area about these types of fences for your commercial business. They can also go over some options for security gates to use with your fence.
