The Importance of High-Quality Fencing

If your place of business does not have a quality fence, you might as well lay out the welcome sign for thieves, vandals, and other threats to security.

You fence ensures a safe environment for not only your building, but for you and your employees as well. Don’t leave this important aspect of your building up to chance! Guarantee your safety and protection by working with a reputable fencing company that always has your needs in mind.


When it comes to fencing, one size does not fit all. Different buildings will require multiple types of fencing throughout the property. For example, the fence you use around the garbage bins is not the same as the fence that will line your property.

The fence around your property is there to protect your building and your employees. As your first line of defense (which will likely run adjacent to a road), this fence can be 2.5 metres high. If the fence borders a highway or another rapid transit road, the fence can be as tall as you would like it to be.


Looking for a little extra security on top of your fence? You’re in luck! Commercial fencing is allowed to feature certain security measures such as barbed wire.

Toronto law allows the fence to exceed a height of 2.5 metres.

The material is installed on a fence that is at least 2.5 metres high.

The barbed or sharp materials incline toward the enclosed area at a 45 degree angle.

The style, materials, and height of a fence are all determined by various standards set forth by the city of Toronto. It can seem impossible to navigate the ins and outs of commercial fencing, but never fear. There is someone who can help you! Hire a City Fence contractor who is dedicated to providing you with high quality fences that meet the standards and requirements for safety and efficiency.
