There is currently no other fence material available that has the strength of steel fencing, not to mention that joins are usually welded and not screwed together which adds to its durability.
Whilst steel is prone to rust, particularly if it comes into contact with salt water, galvanising the fence with zinc will stop corrosion so it is well worth the extra cost of doing this.
Steel fencing can be heavy or light depending on the purpose you want to use it for. For example, tubular steel fences are much lighter but still maintain their strength. No matter which type you need there is now an almost infinite range of styles and colours to choose from.
When galvanised, the fencing requires very little maintenance but when it finally reaches the end of its life it can be recycled so you are lowering your carbon footprint by installing it.
Fencing for almost any application
This type of fencing can be used for a number of applications such as children’s playgrounds, schools and colleges, pet enclosures including those at zoos for wild animals, security perimeters and many more.
Steel is the material of choice for many security applications including prisons, military bases and other areas that require a high level of security. Technology in fencing now makes steel fencing difficult to breach or cut through hence its daunting appearance is usually sufficient to deter even the most daring of intruders.
The cost of installation is directly related to how high you want the fence to be, the size of the perimeter, the amount of fence posts, the number of access points and any accessories you might want to add such as alarms, security cameras or possible a barbed wire topping to mention just a few.
You can cut the cost of installation if you install the fence yourself but sometimes this can be false economy if you have no experience. The money you save on labour might well be usurped by the money you will have to spend on a professional installer if you get the job wrong.
