Choosing a commercial fencing can be a difficult decision because each material has its own advantages and disadvantages. With zoning specifications in mind, each fencing material should provide your company with either privacy, security or aesthetic enhancement. Once your company’s needs have been established, the search for which fencing material to use begins.
A commercial privacy fence can be as simple as a six-foot fence that denotes the property’s boundaries and as complicated as an eight-foot fence with barbs across the top. Designed to conceal your property from prying eyes or curious competitors, a privacy fence can also be pleasing to the eye when constructed from PVC or wooden planks. Privacy fences can also be found in panels, mesh, and screens.
Many business owners choose security fences for their commercial properties. This type of fencing wraps around the perimeter of their structure and helps prevent any unauthorized access. Designed to prevent climbing, it may have bent spikes at the top or double barbed rails to deter intruders. If the nature of the business and its location require privacy as well, the fence should be constructed to provide both. With the addition of gates and doors, a security fence often appears intimidating by design. Ten-foot chain-link industrial fences are the most often requested security fences. When privacy is needed, the chain can be combined with inter-woven materials such as slats, or specially designed mesh coverings.
Aesthetic enhancement fencing on its own is an infrequent commercial fencing request, but modern materials often have such clean lines and sturdy construction that a privacy or security fence can look good and protect at the same time. Tubular steel or aluminum fences have a pleasing contemporary appearance that can still offer security. Wooden rails, posts or pickets are strong, yet fit right into almost any neighborhood without looking commercial. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a popular vinyl fencing material that is strong and weather resistant.
A commercial fencing contractor can save you time and money when building a fence. Check with them regarding zoning requirements and city regulations. He or she can also establish property lines.
