5 Things to Consider When Installing Indoor Fencing
Chain link partitions and security fences offer many benefits for industrial and manufacturing operations. However, these benefits are conditional on proper planning and installation. Here’s what you need to consider when installing an indoor fence.
1. Area size
The first thing to determine is how large of an area you want to fence off. Depending on the size and shape of the area, you may want to use chain link fence or something else, depending on prices and your budget. There are also safety and operational considerations, so make sure to weigh your options carefully.
Appropriate fence height can vary depending on what you’re trying to do and the equipment and products you want to fence off. The main consideration is whether the fence will be high enough to prevent injuries and will be compliant with local regulations as well as industry standards. That’s why working with an experienced contractor is crucial.
3. Operations and safety
Never forget that you need to plan around your business’ operational requirements. You’ll also need to ensure that your workers can perform their tasks safely and efficiently. This means that any security gates and doors will need to be installed in a way that doesn’t put the safety of your workers at risk while providing some measure of convenience so that you don’t have to sacrifice productivity.
4. Installation and expansion
Proper installation is paramount. First, a poorly installed fence is unlikely to provide the level of protection you need it to. Second, it’ll eventually need to be replaced or fixed, meaning you’ll be spending more money than you should. Hiring an experienced contractor is the best way to ensure your fence will be installed properly. In addition, you should determine whether there’s a possibility you’ll need to expand the fence in the future.
If your fence is at risk for collisions with personnel, carts or motorized equipment, it’ll need to be sturdy enough to handle the impact. In addition, chemicals used in industrial operations can damage your fence, so find out whether investing in a special coating is worthwhile. The extra investment can sometimes save you from having to pay for a premature replacement. Also, consider how easy it would be to repair the fence should it become damaged.
