The requirements that commercial fencing needs to fulfil are very similar to the requirements pertaining to residential fencing, but commercial applications need to provide much sturdier solutions for all those requirements, therefore the materials used for making these fences are slightly different. The principle roles of both residential and commercial fencing are access control, security, visual appeal and property delimitation, but commercial facilities usually carry large inventories of products and other very expensive assets, so the fences that surround them need to be able to deliver the best performance. Here are some of the most popular, time-tested materials used for making commercial fences:
- Chain link – the durable chain link fence Denver material is very sturdy and great for property delimitation purposes as well as for protection against intruders;
- Barbed wire – the material uses sharp barbs located on the top of the fence, which makes it the preferred solution for areas where access control is essential as well as on farms where livestock needs to be safely contained;
- Ornamental aluminium and steel – made from heavy-duty materials, these fences suit aesthetic as well as protection purposes;
- Composite fencing – a relatively new material on market, composite panels are made from a mix of plastic, resin and wood. The material is available in many different styles and it is suitable for building very tall fences for complete privacy.
