For many businesses, fencing is just not an aesthetic choice, but rather a safety and security necessity. The right fence selection with the right design elements and add-on materials can help to ensure that your fence keeps unwanted trespassers off of your property. Today, the Carnahan-White team will discuss the many ways in which you can bolster the security of your business with a commercial fence.

Design Factors That Impact the Security of Your Fence
- Fence Height – You want your fence to be tall enough that intruders are unable to easily climb or jump over. Generally, a security fence should be at least 6 feet tall. This height is tall enough to make climbing difficult but not so high that it is menacing to potential customers.
- Security Gate – A security gate allows you to prevent potential intruders from simply circumventing your fence through your entrance. When your business is closed, lock the gate to create a complete barrier around your property.
- Pickets or Security Add-Ons – Picket tops will help dissuade potential intruders from attempting to climb over your fence. If it’s a high-security area, you may also decide to top your fence with security features like barbed wire or razor wire to deter intruders.
- Visibility – One security factor that is often overlooked is the visibility your fence can offer. For instance, many prisons opt for chain link fencing to ensure they have complete visibility of their facility to prevent people from hiding. You can also use a full-panel vinyl fence to create a fully private visual barrier around your property.
