Is Aluminum a Good Choice for a Security Fence?

Aluminum is one of the most commonly used materials for fencing. Aluminum is long-lasting, durable and attractive, but is the right choice to enclose your property securely? When it comes to installing a security fence, there are several factors that you may want to consider. Here are a few things you need to know about before deciding on the best option for your security fence.


Aluminum is lightweight, making it one of the easier and more cost-effective materials to install as fencing. In comparison to metals like steel or iron, it can be transported much more easily and typically costs less to ship. It also doesn’t require upkeep maintenance costs Not only is it easy to install, but it can also be repaired without difficulties.  

Aluminum security fences are versatile. They are sold in a variety of different colors and styles, as well as glossy or matte finishes to make any yard look welcoming and attractive. This material is also malleable, so it can be shaped into different designs to fit the landscape of your property seamlessly.

Aluminum is also durable and long-lasting, so your one-time investment will last for decades without losing the quality and strength over time. Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about your aluminum fence rusting or peeling. Unlike many other metals, aluminum can withstand corrosion. Plus, you will have peace of mind knowing your security fence won’t become damaged from moisture or sunlight.   


Due to its low impact resistance and lightweight, aluminum security fences can become damaged fairly easily in inclement weather. It is not suggested in regions where there are heavy winds and frequent storms as it will most likely bend or dent. Aluminum is more fragile than it’s steel and iron counterparts. Although it is not strong or heavy as materials that are more commonly used for security fences, aluminum fencing can provide functionality without the rust, maintenance, or cost.

Aluminum fences that are untreated often develop an unattractive patina. Although this can be removed from time to time, it is suggested to get a protective coating. However, caring for your fence is relatively simple and only needs to be hosed down periodically to remove dust and dirt.
