You do your best to prepare and protect your employees and customers from harm, but what happens when a potentially dangerous situation suddenly arises? Unfortunately, emergencies can happen when you least expect them to, putting your business, employees and customers at risk. At City Fence, we take special care to help alleviate dangerous situations and the accompanied stress.

Benefits of an Emergency Fence Installation for Your Business

\n

We understand that the nature of your business or the dynamics of your operations may not require a permanent fence on your premises. Here are some advantages of our emergency fence rental service:

\n
    \n
  • Provides an effective barrier from the elements - Canadian winters are tough and relentless, often bringing high volumes of snowfall in the Greater Toronto Area. Additionally, as we enter into the spring season, heavy rain can quickly turn into flooding. In these instances of dangerous weather and natural disasters, one of the best safety control measures is to erect a fence on your property.
  • \n
  • Provides security - Posting emergency fencing on the site of dangerous terrain can help keep the area and people surrounding it, contained and secure. Dangerous terrain can include collapsed buildings, sinkholes, mudslides and generally uneven surfaces.
  • \n
  • Emergency resource relief - If an industrial accident occurs in a residential area, fences are able to stop the flow of people and traffic. Installing a temporary fence not only protects bystanders and your business, but assists the already over-wired police and fire services in Toronto and the surrounding area.
  • \n
\n

Hire Trusted Experts for Fence Installation in Toronto

\n

There are many moving parts that operate within your factory. Workers are going about their daily business, driving tow motors and operating heavy machinery like forklifts and pump trucks. So what about the countless pieces of equipment that are often overlooked, yet, responsible for keeping your facility running? Without installing the right protection, items such as boilers, electrical panels, water meters, gas lines, and more, remain vulnerable. Factory fencing serves to provide a protective enclosure, keeping these expensive and essential items safe from damage and theft.

\n

Unfortunately, fences and posts are usually installed by factory owners / operators when safety has already been compromised. This may occur for instance, when an employee has accidentally pierced a hot water heater with the fork of a tow motor. Having neglected the installation of a preventative barrier, you now have to deal with an active workplace hazard, as well as, additional repair or replacement equipment costs. Looking back, the foresight to ensure fence installation for your Toronto factory would be a wise investment!

\n

How to Protect Your Factory Equipment with Security Fences

\n

Fortunately, there are many ways in which you can protect your factory equipment with indoor fencing. Listed below are some of the options available to suit your needs.

\n

Types of Fences to Protect Equipment On Your Factory Floor:

\n
    \n
  • Iron gates - Due to their durable nature, iron gates are an effective solution when it comes to protecting your employees and equipment. Iron gates can deter unwanted access, while simultaneously providing ease of access for employees. These gates are ideal for protection against theft or damage of your equipment.
  • \n
  • Security fences - Safety is the main priority in any workplace and our security fences offer just that. These fences are best suited to avert property damage, while protecting employees and bystanders from potential danger. Additionally, security fences offer employees an increased level of security from potential harm caused by equipment in the workplace.
  • \n
  • Chain-link fences - This cost-effective option is both easy to maintain and repair, unlike the costly expense to repair the equipment it is protecting. Chain-link fences also come with a low installation cost, while still offering a complete sense of security and durability.
  • \n
  • Partition fencing - Partitions are another useful option when looking to protect your factory equipment. These allow employees to section off specific areas, for example, where sensitive equipment is stored, thus keeping both employees and equipment safe.
  • \n
\n

Installing fencing inside your business premises, is just as important as protecting the outside of your property. Made from the highest quality materials, our indoor fencing products are durable, customizable and affordable to fit your factory enclosure and protection needs.

\n

At City Fence, our experienced fence contractors will provide a free on-site quote and work with you to come up with a customized installation plan. Investing in our factory fencing will not only help extend the longevity of your equipment, but offer an added level of safety for employees and save you money in the long run.

Utilizing Your Space with Custom Fence Installations from Toronto Contractors

\n\n

Today, more companies are opting to construct or develop existing areas. Also, green tech jobs are becoming the preferred choice for new businesses, and more companies are starting to rent out a portion of their warehouses to emerging businesses. Loft spaces are also becoming the ideal location for offices, and collaborative use for offices allows multiple companies to share costs, work from the same downtown office, and still have all the space they need to conduct business in a professional manner.

\n\n

Here are some useful fencing ideas to consider when establishing your new business:

\n\n
    \n\t
  • Commercial Parking Partitions: When converting a warehouse or constructing a new building, employee parking should be a top concern. Employees should be able to park their vehicles on company grounds without security issues. With a commercial parking partition, you can close off employee parking areas, ensuring only those permitted can access the parking lot. While you are cordoning off parking areas, be sure to make space for employees that ride bicycles to work, so that they have a safe place to park their bikes too.
  • \n\t
  • Partitions for Loft and Shared Warehouses: When you create a co-op workspace or warehouse, you still need to divide the square footage for privacy. City Fence can install partitions that separate your business from your warehouse co-inhabitant. Partitions may also be used to help organize larger warehouses for storage, split up departments in loft-style offices, and more.
  • \n\t
  • Entry Gates: Gate systems provide you with a higher level of control and security. Add entry gates to your warehouse or employee parking lot so that only authorized individuals can enter.
  • \n
\n\n

City Fence offers a versatile arrangement of fencing ideas and services for emerging businesses. Whether you are starting fresh in a “top ten” city or elsewhere, check to see if City Fence’s team of contractors service your area.

\"Chain

\n

You have a powerful advertising tool at your disposal, and you may not even know it. The construction fence installation on your Toronto building site is prime real estate for advertisements. Not only can you sell the ad space, but you can use it to promote your project and generate neighbourhood interest long before the construction is done.

\n

4 Benefits of Using Advertising Space on Fences

\n

Worksite boundaries are fenced off with chain link to reduce liability and keep the grounds secure. Instead of letting the chain link surface greet those driving or walking by, you could take advantage of the opportunities for advertising on a space you already own.

\n

Here are some benefits of advertising with fences:

\n
    \n\t
  • Cost-Effective Advertising: You are not purchasing advertising space or renting it; instead, you are using space you own on a barrier you have already paid to install as part of your project’s requirements. The cost of advertising materials, such as a colourful mesh banner, will be nominal compared to the promotional and display value. After all, you are reaching thousands of people per day for a fraction of what a billboard would have cost.
  • \n\t
  • Opportunity to Generate Income: In addition to advertising your project on the exterior of your fence, you can also rent space for local companies on your fencing. If you have vendors working on your construction site, consider exchanging free advertising on the fencing for discounted work.
  • \n\t
  • Improves Aesthetics of the Construction Site: A construction site is full of debris and often looks messy from the exterior. When you cover your chain link fence with advertisements, you have added an attractive appeal to your site and no longer are you bringing down the aesthetics of the neighbourhood.
  • \n\t
  • Develop Brand Awareness: Whether you are building a new condominium that needs to generate buyers or you are a construction firm in need of increased brand awareness, fence advertising is perfect. You can notify the public about the project, which company is constructing it, and how to get in touch. Just make sure your logo is present on the advertisements so that consumers will recognize your logo again when it is advertised elsewhere.
  • \n
\n

Start with a Quality, Durable Chain Link Fence in Toronto

\n

\n

When you are dealing with a fence installation project in Toronto, there are a few factors to consider before hiring a contractor. Not all fencing companies in Toronto are created equal, and with permits and by-laws in place, the wrong contractor could end up costing you more than you budgeted for fence installation.

\n

A good contractor is aware of the permit requirements as well as the fencing standards outlined by the city of Toronto.

\n

So, before hiring the first name you find in the phone book or online classifieds, there are critical considerations that must be assessed first.

\n

5 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Fence Contractor

\n

To ensure you are hiring someone with your business’s best interests in the forefront of operations, here are five points to check and verify with potential contractors:

\n
    \n
  • Type of Fencing: The type of fencing you need matters. For example, if you are in the construction business, a chain link fence in Toronto is required. However, if you want to secure the perimeter of your building, wrought iron fencing offers better aesthetics. Inquire about which types of fencing the company offers; some only have temporary fences or chain link.
  • \n
  • Specialty: A vast majority of companies offering fencing in Toronto also offer other construction-related services. While they market based on the one-company-all-services model, it is better to work with a company that deals exclusively in fencing. These companies are up-to-date on the latest fence materials, technology, and requirements by the city.
  • \n
  • Insurance: Your company has enough potential for liability. So, you do not need to worry about the liability of fencing contractors on your site. A fence contractor should have full business liability coverage as well as WHMIS for any workplace injuries.
  • \n
  • Employee Status: Some fencing companies employ sub-contractors so that they can accept numerous projects. These contracted workers, however, are not permanent employees and they have no ties to that fencing company. The company also does not train a sub-contractor, so there is no guarantee on the quality of work. Instead, you want a company that has employees who are skilled and knowledgeable.
  • \n
  • Permits and Laws: The City of Toronto has strict rules about fencing. While there are fence exemptions, your business may be required to obtain a permit. Also, it is important that the company you hire understand all height, material, and other requirements to meet city standards.
  • \n
\n

Finding the right contractor is easy when you talk to our team at City Fence. At City Fence, we hire our employees, train them, and ensure that they meet our strict quality standards with every project. Furthermore, we are fully insured (including WHMIS).

\n

Our team understands all permit and standards required by the City of Toronto; therefore, you never have to worry about a citation or permit issue with our fences.

\n

We also offer numerous options for specialty fencing on commercial and industrial properties.

\n

Over the past few years, the value of placing fencing around Toronto schools has been increasingly noticed. Hundreds of schools, including private and public, around the city have implemented fences or have plans for a fence installation soon.

\n

The reasons more schools are implementing the use of fencing vary, but when comparing each school’s reasoning, there are four common elements.

\n

4 Reasons a Fence Installation Around a Toronto School is Beneficial for All

\n

There are four reasons schools are opting to put a fence around their perimeter:

\n
    \n
  • Deterring Vandalism: After school hours, vandalism is common on public property; especially school grounds. Before security fencing came about, breaking into school was easy; such as simply walking onto the property! Fencing companies in Toronto now offer security fences and gates that make it harder for anyone to enter the property after school hours; thus, deterring vandals.
  • \n
  • Improved Safety: Parents enjoy peace-of-mind knowing their children are in a fenced playground at school, and teachers, as well as students, have a barrier between the school grounds and the public. There is no one crossing through a school yard to get from one point to another, small children cannot wander during recess time, and schools can direct the flow of traffic through main entrance points.
  • \n
  • Improved Student Movement: A wrought iron fence around Toronto schools not only provides security but also offers management potential. Schools can ensure students come and go through select gates, and students cannot leave school without permission. With one or two entry and exit points on the grounds, the gates can be locked during school hours so that visitors and students are filtered through distinct entrances.
  • \n
  • Improved Aesthetics: With the right type of fencing, a school can protect their students and still have an aesthetic appeal to their exterior.
  • \n
\n

Working with the Right Fence Contractors in Toronto Matters Too

\n

Installing a fence is not enough; your school must ensure you are working with a quality contractor.

\n

A trusted fence contractor, like City Fence, carries full liability coverage and WHMIS coverage for their employees. Also, their staff consists of actual employees; not sub-contractors. These staffers are trained to deliver high-quality results and consistent installations. Most importantly, the team at City Fence only installs, repairs, and maintains fencing. We are a full-service fencing contractor, so our time, energy, and craftsmanship are dedicated to fencing.

\n

When your school is ready for a new fence installation in Toronto, trust in the team at City Fence.

\n

We offer a wide variety of security and commercial fencing options, including wrought iron and chain link.

\n

We can also create gated systems that work for student flow and management, such as cantilever gates, theft-prevention gates, and double swing gates. Our team can help you develop entry and exit points in accordance with city laws and also obtain the necessary permits for fencing (if required for your property).

If you are concerned about the structural integrity of your commercial fence, don’t wait to make any necessary repairs or adjustments. Unfortunately, not all commercial fencing is as secure as it should be, which can leave your property vulnerable to theft. This can have a huge impact on your business, especially if the vandals have targeted important and expensive equipment and materials. Not only will you be responsible for replacing all of your stock, but your insurance premiums may also go through the roof.

\n

Factors to look for in a Secure Fence

\n

You can avoid expensive property damage and loss by regularly inspecting the following areas of your fence and taking any necessary measures to keep it safe and secure.

\n
    \n
  • The top part of the fence - Even with a high chain link fence, intruders can simply climb over by putting their feet through the holes in the fence. However, if the top consists of razor wire or bends over towards the outside, it can deter vandals from trespassing on your property.
  • \n
  • The bottom part of the fence - It is possible for someone to enter your property by digging a hole under the fence, even if it is ground level. You can prevent this from happening with a cement base, which leaves no room for thieves to climb beneath it.
  • \n
  • Through the fence - Investing in a solid and strong fence means burglars will not be able to get through by cutting the wire or driving into it. City Fence has a wide range of high quality fencing options that are designed to provide optimal security, strength and durability, protecting your investment from intruders.
  • \n
  • Trees close to the fence - If your fence has been installed around an area with growing trees, you may have a security problem, especially if a strong branch extends over the fence. Burglars can easily climb the tree to make their way over into your property. Choosing a company that specializes in commercial fence installation in Toronto is the best way to eliminate this type of risk to your property.
  • \n
  • The fence is weak – It is crucial to ensure your fence’s hinges and locks are secure and all posts are strong. If you suspect that your fence is not as secure as it should be, City Fence can offer affordable repair services to restore it quickly and effectively.
  • \n
\n

Making the necessary adjustments and repairs to any weak areas of your fence can protect your business from potential break-ins. City Fence has over 35 years of experience in security fence installations for all types of commercial and industrial properties, as well as sensitive projects including police stations, jails, courts, and governments railways. We also offer free, onsite estimates to better serve you.

When choosing to install a fence on your commercial property, you want to be sure you hire a professional contractor who knows about fence construction, sizing, placement and city bylaws. This will help you avoid running into serious complications down the road, including potential fence damage, costly fines and even worse, a class action lawsuit.

\n

Always do your due diligence before committing to any purchase and/or contract. Here are some important factors to consider before selecting a contractor to build your commercial fence:

\n
    \n
  • Is the company locally owned? Supporting a local and family-owned business means you are making your contribution towards improving the local economy. And chances are, you even know the people behind the product, so you can expect straightforward and honest service.
  • \n
  • Are you paying for high quality work? There are several fencing companies in Toronto that will tell you they deliver exceptional service and products, but how can you be sure? Do some research on the company and read some online reviews to see if they actually live up to their word and provide quality workmanship. Also, be sure to choose a company that guarantees their work.
  • \n
  • How long has the company been in business? Choose a company that has been in the fence installation business for a long time. This way you know they will be around if you run into any problems. You can also have peace of mind knowing they have a good reputation in the marketplace.
  • \n
  • Do they provide free estimates? When a company takes the time to provide you with a free estimate and discuss the project without pressure, you can get a realistic picture of your needs and how much you can expect to invest. It also gives you the chance to compare prices with other contractors.
  • \n
  • Does the company offer flexibility? Finding a contractor that can patiently alter schedules to complete the job in a certain amount of time is key, even if it involves working extra hours.
  • \n
  • Is the contractor licensed, bonded and insured? If something goes wrong on the job site and the contractor gets injured, you could be liable. A legitimate license and insurance validates the contractor’s credibility and knowledge, and also protects you from getting cheated.
  • \n
  • Has the contractor offered to show you work samples? Samples can give you a better idea of what you want and even help spark ideas for your project. They are also important references that can help you see the contractor’s quality of work.
  • \n
  • Will you be provided with a detailed contract before the work begins? Ultimately, a contract ensures expectation setting and can help prevent any surprises from surfacing before and during the project. The contract should include costs, items being installed, start and finish dates and the company’s contact details.

All construction sites in Toronto must adhere to strict protection and safety guidelines. City bylaws control many aspects of your site, including protective boarding and fencing. In an effort to ensure your construction site is safe for neighbours and workers, you are required to protect the area. Without the right measures in place, you may be fined and even forced to close down your entire project. Even worse, someone may sustain an injury at your jobsite, which can prove to be very costly to you.

\n

According to Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act, “if work on a project may endanger a person using a public way, a sturdy fence at least 1.8 meters in height shall be constructed between the public way and the project.” So, as you begin to set up your construction site, be sure to take into consideration the following:

\n
    \n
  • You must apply for a city permit before installing your fence
  • \n
  • You must install protective boarding or fences around trees and shrubs
  • \n
  • You must enclose the site with protective fencing to restrict access
  • \n
  • Your fence must adhere to regulations regarding size and placement
  • \n
\n

Advantages of Fence Installation on Your Toronto Construction Site

\n

Fencing in Toronto is a crucial factor in any construction project, as it alerts people that construction work is being carried out in the area. Not only is it a smart strategy to avoid personal injuries and lawsuits, but a fence can also provide many other benefits.

\n
    \n
  • It can limit the movement of personnel, vehicles, and equipment to a specific area, minimizing disruption of the site and reducing the potential for soil erosion.
  • \n
  • It can protect trees against damage and their roots against soil compaction.
  • \n
  • It can protect water bodies or newly seeded landscapes.
  • \n
  • It can prevent unauthorized access by people, vehicles, and equipment.
  • \n
  • It can control pollutants by confining construction activities to a specific location.
  • \n
  • It can keep hazardous materials fenced off with available access only for trained personnel.
  • \n
  • It can prevent thieves and vandals from stealing your expensive construction equipment and materials.
  • \n
  • It can prevent damage to surrounding properties.
  • \n
\n

Once you have installed a temporary fence on your construction site, inspection and maintenance is extremely important. If at any point the fence fails to be effective, it is your responsibility to either make the necessary repairs or install a more resilient fence. It is especially crucial to monitor the fence during the winter season, as it may require extra maintenance due to snow compaction.

\n

We understand what is required in the construction industry and can provide recommendations, as well as a free, onsite estimate for a low-cost fencing alternative.

The winter season can impact just about everything, including your property fence. Luckily, there are simple steps you can take to prevent and minimize cold weather damage to your steel, metal or wrought iron fence in Toronto. Read on to learn how you can get a leg up on winter fence care to help you avoid costly repairs or replacements down the road.

\n

Wrought Iron Fence

\n
    \n
  • It’s a good idea to clean your wrought iron fence once a week to improve its longevity.
  • \n
  • It’s an even better idea to clean it before the first snow fall, as snow tends to gather dirt and grime, which will be left on your fence once the snow melts.
  • \n
  • If you notice rust on your fence, the best way to tackle it is to clean it off before it snows, as melting snow will only make matters worse.
  • \n
  • You can use a paint scraper or a wire brush to remove the rust. But if there is just too much of it, it may be a good idea to replace that specific part of your fence.
  • \n
  • Once you have removed the rust, you will want to sand, prime, and paint the fence to properly seal it and give it a brand new finished look.
  • \n
\n

Steel Fence

\n
    \n
  • Don’t let snow accumulate on your fence. Take the time to brush it off after every snowfall to prevent water from seeping into any potential areas that may be flaking.
  • \n
  • If you have noticed rust, you will need to repaint your fence to prevent the damage from worsening.
  • \n
  • Use a stiff metal brush to remove the rust and then wash the fence to remove all lingering debris.
  • \n
  • You will then need to apply a coat of primer once the fence is dry. Follow it up with a coat of paint.
  • \n
  • It’s best to treat your rust problem as soon as possible to avoid bigger problems from surfacing in the spring.
  • \n
\n

Metal Fence

\n
    \n
  • Though metal fences are one of the strongest you can buy, they too can experience some form of damage over the years, which will require necessary repairs or replacement.
  • \n
  • Check your fence for any exposed metal, particularly towards the grass where mowers or weed whackers may have chipped the coating.
  • \n
  • Be sure to touch up any exposed metal with appropriate coating to prevent rust from developing.
  • \n
  • If you have already noticed rust, you will have to scrape it off, wash off the debris, and then paint the area to prevent the rust from spreading.
  • \n
