Choosing The Right Fence For You

Security fencing can be used for all manner of things, from the old fashioned, chain-link fence with its “DO NOT ENTER” metal signs to the modern, top of the range, anti-climb, anti-break fencing, designed with today’s volatile world in mind.

With violent protests hitting the news at an alarming rate, never before has knowing about security fencing and the types available to you been so important in protecting the sites you own.

Chain Link Fencing

The traditional choice and the image conjured in people when a security fence is mentioned. With its widely spaced design, the fence is an inexpensive option to consider when low to medium security is needed. When twinned with toppings, this can be a formidable security measure at a reasonable price.

Palisade Fencing

This is the kind of fencing most often found around businesses and hospitals. Its design of many long, thin strips of metal held at the top and bottom make it more difficult to climb than the chain link fencing, and with the tops often sharpened to a point, rarely requires toppings.

Welded Mesh Fencing

Welded mesh is like the traditional chain link fence but with its links much closer together. This is a more expensive option but is one of the most secure. Its closed design makes it one of the most difficult fences to climb, although it would still require toppings to complete the job thoroughly.

Fence Toppings

Toppings can range from the long strings of barbed wire seen atop of many security fences, to thick coils of razor wire. Not only is razor wire sharper than barbed, it also looks a more formidable device, the coils often adding a foot or more to the height of a fence.

Rapid Deployment Security Barrier

Looking like a bundle of coiled razor wire, a rapid deployment security banner is one that can be deployed by just two people in five minutes. The fence is 75 metres in length and can be attached to adjoining barriers to cover an even larger distance. These are ideal for the temporary security of an area at very short notice.

With all these opportunities on offer, and the sensitive nature of what they are designed to protect, knowing what is available is half the battle covered when you need to protect what you have. SABUNG AYAM
