Here is the Truth About Security Fences

Common myths about security fencing might be at the root of this, so let’s break those down.

When you’re thinking about a fence for your home, it is pretty straight forward. Do you need to keep pets or kids on your property? Get a fence. Do you need to keep people or eyes off your property? Get a fence. Making the same decision for your business should be just as straightforward, but for some reason, it’s not. Common myths about security fencing might be at the root of this, so let’s break those down.

Fences And Curb Appeal

Security fences don’t have to be unattractive, and they also won’t necessarily hide your business from view from the street. There are so many different security fence styles available that there is sure to be one that complements your brand identity and provides security without compromising views.

Fencing For “That Type” of Business

Somehow people still associate security fencing with only particular businesses and feel that if they don’t run an airport or a junkyard, they don’t need one. Security fences offer security. If you worry about needing to protect your property and keep unauthorized people off it, you need a fence.


Another misconception is that adding a security fence to your property would increase your workload in terms of maintenance. The truth is that most security fencing is either chain link or wrought iron, neither of which requires much maintenance. If someone deliberately destroys your fence, there will be some work involved in repairing it (or having a professional do so). Still, you could say the same for the door or window to your building, and its more difficult and time-consuming to damage a fence.


If you’re avoiding getting commercial fencing for your business because of cost, you may be surprised by the actual number of options you have at really reasonable prices. Fencing also has incredible value, and the more expensive types, like ornamental, have even greater longevity to improve that value.


If your concern is that a security fence won’t keep a thief out, rest assured– this is their primary purpose. Security fences are challenging to cut through, regardless of style and material. They are also typically very tall and hard to climb, especially if you add an anti-climb feature like razor wire.
