Busting 5 Myths About Security Fences

High-quality fences and gates allow you to rest assured that your business is safe from burglars and other unwanted visitors 24/7. Not sure that a security fence is right for your business?



One of these five common misconceptions might be to blame. Keep reading to get the facts about how a security fence can benefit your business. 


1. Security fences are only for certain types of businesses

If you believe security fences are only suited for big institutions and airports, think again. Nearly every business can benefit from increased security. Security fences come in many shapes and sizes and can be designed to perfectly complement your property and the needs of your business.


2. Fences will harm your curb appeal

Some business owners feel a fence would be an unattractive addition to their property or that it could hide their business from view. But this isn’t the case at all. In fact, to many onlookers, a fence sends a clear message that yours is an established business that takes its security and that of its clients seriously.


3. Fencing maintenance will be a huge burden

Most commercial and industrial security fences are made from chain link or wrought iron. In both cases, very little maintenance is required. Apart from deliberate damage, chain link requires almost no regular maintenance and can easily last for 20 years or more. 


4. Fences won’t stop a burglar

Security fences are designed to be strong and difficult to cut through. Chain link fences are typically at least six feet high, making them difficult to climb over, even for the fittest would-be burglar. Plus, the addition of an anti-climb feature will ensure your fence is impossible to scale. 

5. Fencing is expensive

The cost of your fencing depends on the material you choose. Chain link is a popular choice because it provides business owners with good value while delivering reliable protection from intruders. Ornamental, because of its impressive strength and durability, comes with a higher up-front cost but lasts for much longer.
