5 Myths Surrounding Security Fencing

Security fencing is a great way to improve your perimeter protection!

Protecting your commercial property is of the utmost importance to the well being of you and your business. If any potential intruders or anyone wishing to hurt your business was able to enter your property, it could have catastrophic repercussions. The best way to protect your commercial property is by installing security fencing. Although this seems like an obvious solution, there are several myths surrounding security fencing that make some hesitant to invest in it. However, these myths about security fencing prove to be quite false.

You don’t need it

Some businesses foolishly believe that they cannot benefit from a security fence, and as a result, do not invest in it. However, the fact of the matter is that every commercial property should be making this investment. By having security fencing, you are providing your business with the benefits of enhanced perimeter protection, as well as additional privacy, among many other benefits.

Fences can be climbed over

Another common misconception is that criminals can simply climb over fences to enter the property. However, an anti-climb feature can easily be added to your security fence to prevent anyone from invading your property this way. Your security fence will prove to be impossible to scale thanks to their anti-climb features. Even without an anti-climb fence, security fences are typically very tall and hard to breach.

There are no additional benefits

A myth you might hear often about security fencing is that there are not many other benefits to it. In reality, security fencing provides you and your business with a more benefits than just protection. Security fencing that is made from wood can help block both wind and noise from bothering your property, allowing your property to be more peaceful and relaxing. Which also leads into the next myth…

There are limited options for materials

The idea that aluminum is the only real option for security fencing is a silly one. As previously stated, wood is another option that you can choose for your security fencing. There are plenty of other fencing options for you to choose from, even when dealing with a chain link fence. For example, instead of aluminum, you can opt for stainless steel wires.

Heavy maintenance is required

Lastly, there is the myth that security fences require a lot of maintenance from your end. Security fencing actually requires only very little maintenance, if any. Some material options may require a little more maintenance than others, but security fencing can last you for years with minimal maintenance.
