We are living in an extremely unsettled world at present and given the recent global economic recession it’s not surprising that despite the installation of over 4 million CCTV cameras throughout the UK, property to the value of around £1.2 billion is stolen every year. According to recent market research conducted by Plimsoll, acquisition of fencing companies is a great investment at present. Security fencing for commercial sites is a lucrative business for existing and prospective fencing contractors.
Experienced fencing contractors know that the perfect installation of fencing to protect commercial sites is just one part of the job. Equally important is keeping up to date with the latest innovations and technology in the security fencing industry, so that you can advise your clients on the best products to match their specific requirements.
Security and Aesthetics
Whilst your clients’ primary concerns relate to protecting their plant, machinery and other valuable possessions from vandalism, robbery and sometimes arson they will often want security fencing that is aesthetically pleasing. Some commercial sites will require permanent security fencing and others temporary; and some sites demand a higher level of security than others so if you are new to the business it’s wise to choose suppliers who are well established and have the expertise to share their knowledge of the industry with you.
For example, construction sites invariably need temporary fencing that can be assembled and then taken down easily with very little focus on aesthetics; whereas other businesses require permanent security fencing for commercial sites that offers protection as well as aesthetics. Always find out which type is appropriate before meeting with the client so that you take all the materials and specification literature with you that relate to the product they are likely to purchase.
Industrial Welded Mesh Fencing
By far the most popular security fencing for commercial sites, not only in the UK but also throughout the whole of Europe, is Industrial Welded Mesh Fencing. The security performance of this product is outstanding due to the diversity of style, durability and the difficulty any intruder would have in climbing it. In addition it is extremely aesthetically pleasing.
In the UK some business are required by law to fence their commercial sites due to the nature of activity carried out on them. Prime examples are power or industrial plants or any other industry that may cause harm to people outside of the site. Security fencing for commercial sites is sometimes essential for the protection of people who work or live near to the site because despite the danger or illegality of them doing so, there are some individuals who will try to enter the premises even if it’s just curiosity that motivates them.
Reduce liability claims with high quality security fencing
If your clients require permanent security fencing, it’s always best to sell them quality products if budget allows. This is not just because of the durability of the product but liability claims will be dramatically reduced since high quality security fences seldom fail to keep people out.
