5 Reasons To Use Steel For Your Security Fencing

If you’re considering installing fencing around your property to keep out trespassers and safeguard your possessions, you’re probably wondering what the best material is to use. Understandably, you could argue that we’re biased, but we have no hesitation in recommending steel. There are many advantages to choosing steel over other fencing materials such as aluminium or timber, but here are 5 of the best.

  1. Durability – One of the main reasons for choosing steel is that by nature it’s extremely hard and durable. It’s often galvanised or coated with a layer of zinc to make it last for several decades. With other materials, there’s always the chance that they will rot or become damaged, giving access to intruders.

  1. High security feature – Another advantage of using steel as security fencing is that your home, business, and possessions are kept much safer. You can have control of who can or can’t enter your property by using it in conjunction with swipe cards, electronic gates, and security cameras. In many cases, the mere presence of steel fencing is enough to prevent anyone from trying to get in.

  1. Convenient parking – If you own a property with a large open area, then quite likely visitor parking is haphazard, and doesn’t look particularly professional, either. With steel fencing you can create an organised parking facility with visitors forced to follow the outlined parking that you have marked.

  1. Great safety feature – Steel fencing also provides an excellent level of safety. If you’re worried about trespassers gaining access, you’ll feel more at ease knowing that your property is surrounded by a steel fence and that no-one can get in without being spotted. Children and pets can also be prevented from straying on to a busy road.

  1. Low maintenance – Another reason for the popularity of steel fencing is that it is relatively low maintenance, saving both time and cost. Not only will you spend less time ensuring your barrier looks in good condition but it will cost less to maintain too. Steel looks shiny throughout all the seasons and isn’t likely to rust or corrode. All that’s needed to keep it looking its best is clean water and a cloth.

Whether you’re looking to protect your property from unauthorised access, to prevent the theft of your valuables, or to make your family feel safer, we always recommend steel.
