An effective security fence is essential to keeping your and your property safe. Whether you need to protect your business assets on a commercial property or are simply looking to install commercial fencing for aesthetic purposes, Wyoming fencing has a solution that will meet your unique needs.There are several reasons that security fencing in Wyoming is beneficial, and this article discusses the best types of fencing materials for your commercial property or business.
The Strongest Wyoming Security Fence Options
An effective security fence protects your assets and property by deterring or delaying intruders. In areas where crime is typically low and opportunistic, Wyoming commercial fencing may meet all the security demands for your business. In commercial and industrial settings, a security fence usually is a metal structure that acts as a deterrent, is unscalable, and may include additional security features such as spikes and razor wire.
Maintaining visibility and line of sight is essential for adequate security, so metal and chain link fences are preferable as they provide security without compromising visibility.
Unfortunately, no security fence can keep out all intruders. With the right tools and enough time and patience, intruders can thwart even the strongest fence, so the goal is to delay entry as long as possible.
Before choosing Wyoming commercial fencing for your property, ask these three important questions:
Does the Fence Provide Hiding Places?
Consider visibility when choosing security fencing styles and materials. Solid, tall fences provide privacy, but they also provide hiding places for intruders. You may want to choose materials that do not hinder visibility, so that you will be able to easily see any prowlers and have time to call the police or investigate any disturbances before anyone has the chance to breach the fence.
Is the Fence Easy to Climb?
An appropriate security fence should be both tall and difficult to climb. If there are height restrictions for your fence, choose a design that has spikes or points at the top to hinder potential intruders. Fence designs containing horizontal rails should be arranged to face the inside of your property and spaced far enough apart to prevent easy climbing.
Is the Fence Difficult to Bypass?
Most break-ins are unplanned and based on convenience. How quickly can an intruder climb over, around, or under the fence? If the property can be accessed easily or retreated from quickly, it will be more attractive to burglars and will not provide much security. To ensure that no opening is left open or exposed, a good security perimeter fence should surround the entire property, should include security gates and driveway gates, and should be secured to the ground. Additionally, it should not be easy to cut.
SWi Wyoming recommends the following effective security fences:
1. Aluminum Fencing
Aluminum fencing remains the preferred security fence material for many business owners and neighborhood associations since it is strong, intruder-resistant, and aesthetically pleasing. In fact, even the White House has long used aluminum fencing for security purposes!
Pests, Weather, and Wear Are No Match for Aluminum Fences
Unbothered by weather, wind, or insects, well-made aluminum fences are unmatched for strength and longevity. Aluminum fences are affordable and will not rot, rust, or deteriorate. Despite being a lighter-weight fencing material, they have proven to be as strong as wrought-iron fences. They happen to be more affordable than iron fences, yet are just as durable. Because they are made with a protective powder coating, high-quality aluminum fences are practically indestructible.
Aluminum security fencing will not rot or rust and it requires minimal upkeep. This type of Wyoming fencing only needs to be cleaned occasionally, simply to ensure that the specialized powder coating remains in great shape. Following these simple cleaning instructions will keep aluminum fencing in good condition for years to come.
2. Chain Link Fence
On its own, chain link fence is only moderately effective at preventing entry to your property. The open visibility and lower price point make it a desirable option for property owners on a tight budget. However, chain link’s diamond-shaped 3-inch holes are an easy toe-hold for most shoes and the 9- or 11- gauge steel wire can be cut almost effortlessly with a hacksaw, bolt cutter, or garden loppers. To boost the effectiveness of your security fence, add barbed or electrical wire to the top of the fence, select thicker galvanized steel wires, or choose a taller fence height. These measures can increase security and durability and may also discourage intruders from attempting to climb your fence.
Chain Link is Durable and Long-Lasting
Pests and rot are no match for chain link fences, as they are made of galvanized steel. Choose from several colors of protective PVC coating to further protect your Wyoming commercial fence, increase longevity, or add to the aesthetic appeal.
Chain link fences require little to no maintenance. Chain link fences never need to be painted or stained and they do not attract dirt or debris. Occasionally sweep off leaves and cobwebs, and this type of fence will look as good as new. Chain link fences are an excellent choice for property owners who are not interested in increasing their maintenance requirements.
3. Vinyl Fencing
In commercial settings, vinyl fencing is commonly used to provide a barrier around equipment, to hide garbage containers, or to hide other unsightly equipment. The benefit of vinyl fencing is complete privacy and a virtually unscalable privacy fence. However, if you need full visibility this may not provide the best solution for your security needs.
Vinyl Fencing is Strong and Durable
We adhere to the strictest American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards in the USA, which means our products have superior durability. They will not rust, mildew, crack, flake, corrode, curl, or attract termites. When correctly installed by SWi Wyoming, vinyl fences can easily withstand harsh Wyoming weather conditions.
Low-Maintenance and Clean Appearance
Vinyl fencing is clean and polished, almost completely weatherproof, and low maintenance. There are a variety of colors and styles to choose from including solid panels that mimic wood fencing, picket fences, or ranch-style fencing. Vinyl fencing can improve the appearance of your business property and will look new for years to come.
