Selecting the right type of industrial fencing for the perimeter of your site is most likely going to be defined by budget and the level of security you require. Most companies also want the type of industrial fencing that will be long lasting with minimal maintenance so here are a few tips to assist you in the decision making process.
Invariably secure, industrial fencing is more expensive per metre and can make a big hole in your budget before you have even thought about the installation of it. However, depending on the areas you want to protect you might want to take a close look at welded mesh panels with their anti-climb properties. These panels are a highly popular choice for securing industrial premises because they are durable, low maintenance and affordable.
Palisade fencing provides additional security when a medium level of security is required. Choosing this for your industrial fencing needs is a great idea due to its D shaped heads which makes it difficult for anyone trying to get over the top of it; and its appearance is usually enough to stop intruders even trying. This type of fencing can often be seen around retail and recreational parks.
Posts make a huge difference to the price
In the installation of industrial fencing, as indeed with any other type, the amount of posts required will impact adversely on the budget. The fencing will be more expensive if you need a lot of posts. However, if you are upgrading an existing fence it is sometimes possible for a professional fencing installer to incorporate them into your new industrial fencing system using rolls of welded mesh. But if you don’t have an existing fence your best option is to choose 3 metre width welded mesh panels to cut down on the amount of posts needed to secure the fence.
Robust industrial fencing
Irrespective of budget, it’s vital that you don’t waste your budget on industrial fencing that won’t stand the test of time. Cheap, sub-standard fencing is false economy if you have to replace or repair it frequently. In the long term you will end up paying double the price so invest in the most robust fencing you can afford.
