Five Benefits of Security Fencing for Your Home

If you’re on the fence, so to speak (ha ha), about shelling out for security fencing for your home or commercial property, wonder no more. There are a number of reasons why security fencing is ideal for your home, from the obvious security benefits to providing adequate privacy and vandal prevention, to adding an aesthetically pleasing barrier between your property and the outside world. With so many varieties on the market now, it can be difficult to make a choice on what kind of fence you should invest in, so we’ve done the hard work there for you too. Read on to find out more about why security fencing is the best thing for your home.

The benefits of security fencing

Usually, security fencing is installed on a property for two main reasons—to keep your home secure and to add a visually appealing element. We’ve gone a step further and come up with five brilliant benefits that will have you sure that a security fence is the best thing for your home.

#1 Security

This one is obvious, but it’s the most important one. Private homes definitely need security, especially if a home owner has a young family or valuable belongings to protect. Protecting your home against would-be thieves is probably the most important benefit of a security fence. A security fence is also an important part of a commercial property—with the premises being unoccupied for such long periods of time after staff go home for the night, commercial properties need outstanding security. Equipment, furniture, assets and even the building itself need to be protected at all times. Nothing can be more effective at providing security than effective fencing.

Security fences are a great way to ensure that your kids and pets stay safe and secure. The fence will provide them with a safe place to play, while protecting them from cars and other external dangers.

#2 Vandal and graffiti deterrent

Vandalism is a growing problem for many people, both home owners and commercial property owners alike. Vandals can leave graffiti on a wall or damage the outside of a private property. Commercial properties or public buildings seem to be the most attractive to graffiti artists and vandals. The key aspect is positioning—if you choose the correct location to install your security fence it can make it almost impossible for a vandal to leave their mark. Used in this way, a security fence can be a great deterrent for vandals and graffiti artists.

#3 Aesthetically pleasing features

While a security fence should ultimately provide a strong, reliable barrier between your property and the rest of the world, it can also improve the overall look and style of your home. This can result in an increase in value for your property, should you be looking to sell at any time in the future. To that end, security fencing comes in a wide variety of designs—from electric fences to fixed iron, aluminium or mesh (to name just a few). There is a range of colours as well, so you can choose a security fence that will best complement your home or that will update your existing style. The final decision on what kind of fence you need depends entirely on your security needs, your aesthetic preferences and your budget.

#4 Privacy

Have you ever opened a window only to notice a neighbour or someone outside watching you, your home or your family? It can be quite disconcerting and can make you think twice about opening your home up to light and fresh air on fine days. Having a solid barrier like a security fence prevents people from being able to peer into your home, from checking out your belongings, or from watching you and your family while you relax. It can mean that you’ll be able to open up your home without the rest of the world being able to peer in.

$5 Providing a protective barrier against weather

A security fence can also add a barrier against bad weather. When it comes to strong wind, rain or hail, a solid security fence can protect your home from severe damage. Of course, it all depends on the type of fence and where you position it, but either way you’re looking at an added layer of weather protection your home or commercial property otherwise wouldn’t have.

What type of fence is best?

So, you’re now well aware that there is a range of security fencing out on the market today. But before you close the gate on any of them, here’s a bit of information to help you make a more informed decision on the fence that will suit the level of security or privacy you require. Read on to find out which type of fencing best suits your property and your needs!

#1 Chain-link

This fence is easily installed and traditionally used for commercial and industrial properties. It’s affordable, long lasting, and can be made to any specification. For added security, razor wire can be added on top to further prevent intruders.

#2 Weldmesh

Sturdy and durable, this type of fence is also cost-effective. Weldmesh is most commonly used on leisure centres, playgrounds, parks, industrial areas, schools, agricultural sites, and swimming pools. It’s definitely more attractive than the chain-link fencing.

#3 Palisade

This type of fence is the strongest and the most durable type of security fencing on the market. Made from heavy-duty rolled steel pickets, it is extremely hard to climb and is used in electrical sub-stations, train and bus depots, and other high-security premises.

#4 Garrison

One of the most popular choices, garrison fencing is perfect for medium security requirements. It’s welded with tubular panels and is pleasing aesthetically. It’s also great at deterring vandals and intruders. This type of fencing is best suited to built-up areas and is most commonly used in light commercial areas, schools, public buildings, private and public swimming pools, and community centres.

These are just some of the types of fencing available to secure your property. Now that you know the benefits security fencing can provide and you know some of the most common fencing options, contact Fence Corp for an obligation-free quote on how to pick the best fencing for your needs.

We had a custom design manufactured by FenceCorp and would like to acknowledge their workmanship and quality of the finished product. We were very happy and we constantly get compliments from friends and anyone just walking by.  We are definitely fussy people and had our mind set on what we wanted.  FenceCorp did and has made what we hoped for.
