How secure is your commercial property? All properties should have some sort of fence to help secure it. Depending on how many acres you have, you may need a larger fence that is both higher and more extensive. One way to achieve that level of security while keeping costs down is to choose a chain link fence.
For one thing, have a security fence helps keep burglars away. After all, this discourages intruders since it means that you as a property owner are serious about security. These fences also help mark where property lines are to help prevent accidental trespassing and more intentional crimes, such as a vehicle break-in. Chain link fences carry a bad reputation for being flimsy, but many of them are made of steel. Compared to other fence materials, you can’t go wrong with using steel. Any intruders who are trying to get in will have a much harder time cutting through the links. This means that staff, neighbors, or police can spot the trespasser and stop them before they can get into your commercial property, no matter what it is they plan on doing.
Designing Your Chain Link Fence
You’re convinced: chain link fences are worth it. So now let’s talk about how to design one. Every chain link fence is unique, so yours probably won’t be the same as the business down the street. You can include barbed wire or razor wire at the top, especially for construction sites or other places with restricted exterior access. Just make sure that this upgrade is legal. You should also include a bottom rail to help secure the mesh. Pick a color other than black, which is a good idea from an aesthetic standpoint, but also makes the fence easier to spot at night. The fence should be at least six feet high, but keep the mesh small. This size discourages climbing. Choose a mesh size that ⅜” and a wire gauge of 9 or lower.
