3 Security Necessities for Your Business

Much has been said about the need for cybersecurity measures, and while securing computers and digital devices is important, the physical security of business premises should never be overlooked. There are 3 security necessities that every enterprise needs.

Camera

Security cameras are an essential element in protecting property from burglars. They can provide the images needed to identify thieves, bring them to justice, and facilitate the return of stolen goods returned. Don’t skimp on the quality or number of cameras. Businesses will want cameras that record in normal light and infrared at night.

Surveillance cameras are just as important inside a business. They’re effective in documenting instances of employee or vendor theft. They’re also beneficial for identifying employees that are using unsafe work habits that can result in costly lawsuits if an injury occurs.

Alarm

While security cameras deter most intruders, the highly-motivated will still attempt to enter. That’s when an alarm system is invaluable. It will notify authorities when an incursion is actually in progress.

Fencing

Fencing is an excellent deterrent against trespassers and there’s a wide array of fencing from which to choose. A sufficiently high chain link fence is always an effective solution and it can be made even more so by adding an extension at the top with an outward angle. It’s also effective for keeping wildlife out. Business owners can also choose to attach barbed wire or razor wire to the top. It’s typically used at production plants, construction sites and utility facilities.

Housing developments, restaurants, non-profits and even animal shelters can benefit from aluminum fencing. It has the appearance of wrought iron, is available in multiple heights, and can be customized with iron spikes.

Another option for housing developments and eateries with outdoor facilities is SimTek® or PVC fencing. They’re stylish, can be installed at varying heights, offers multiple customization options, and don’t provide intruders with protrusions they can use to scale fencing.

4 Commercial Fence Options for Your Business

Fencing serves a variety of purposes for businesses. They provide security, control access, and can be used to direct foot traffic. Depending on the choice of fence, the structure can provide visual appeal and enhance the perception of the business.

Aluminum

Stately, elegant and durable, aluminum fencing rivals the appearance of high-end wrought iron and can be customized in multiple ways. Aluminum is a sustainable metal that’s highly decorative and can be equipped with spear pickets for enhanced safety and security. The material isn’t susceptible to corrosion, is available in multiple colors, and is low maintenance.

SimTek®

Chain Link

A chain link fence is an ideal solution for production plants and similar installations that are at risk and vulnerable as determined by the Dept. of Defense. The fencing is relatively inexpensive and can be affixed with tarping known as privacy screening or wind screening to block operations from prying eyes. Chain link can be equipped with an underground cable to prevent wildlife from burrowing under it and overhangs at the top to prevent wildlife from climbing over. The fencing is highly durable and available in multiple colors and heights.

Businesses that desire wood fencing can choose from three styles – shadowbox, board-on-board or stockade. The fencing can be customized in multiple ways for added decorative value and assembled with hurricane proof nails. Wood fencing can also be painted or stained if desired.

Commercial Fencing Options

Fencing in commercial venues can take many forms, from temporary fencing on job projects to high-tech security around warehouses. There are multiple types of materials from which to choose that will accommodate very specific needs.

Hiding Unattractive Features

Dumpsters, generators and electrical boxes are just some of the items that can be found in and around home developments, warehouses, factories, stores, and restaurants. They’re unsightly and can attract unwelcome wildlife. One of the most popular options for camouflaging and containing those areas is wooden fencing. PVC and SimTek® are also excellent choices. The options come in a variety of styles, colors, textures and won’t attract insects.

High Security

Whether it’s a wild animal enclosure, food processing plant or correctional facility, high-security fencing is typically an incarnation chain link. It’s available in multiple-size weaves, can be erected in multiple heights, and spikes or razor wire can be affixed to the top. The fencing is equally applicable for facilities ranging from airports and shipyards to chemical plants.

Large Gates

A fence isn’t complete without a gate and there are several types that can be paired with commercial fencing that open vertically or horizontally. Commercial endeavors can select from sliding and bi-folding styles, vertical lift or pivot gates, and those that require a keycard or keypad to gain entry.

Temporary

Chain link fencing is the undisputed king for creating temporary barriers and barricades. The material is cost-effective and installs quickly to secure expensive tools and vehicles on construction sites and protect companies from liability. 

The fences are also effective in areas where commercial remodeling or landscaping is being performed. The fencing can be used on uneven terrain that could be dangerous to people. Two added benefits with temporary chain link fencing are that a tarp or other material can be easily affixed to the fencing to prevent prying eyes from seeing inside and the fence covering aids in keeping down dust.

Fence Durability has Come a Long Way

Fencing has played a roll in safety and beautification of properties for centuries. In the beginning, there was only wood, rock or metal in its most basic forms. Today, individuals have access to an extensive range of modern materials made possible through technological advances that provide greater durability while remaining aesthetically pleasing.

Wood

Individuals can still choose wood for their fencing needs. The difference is that new treatments have been developed that can be applied to ward off insects and protect against rot. In this instance, the wood hasn’t changed but the methods to extend durability has.

Metal

Powder coatings and sealants for anti-weathering protection have extended the lifespan of metal fencing. In the case of chain link, newer and more lightweight materials, combined with the practice of dipping the metal in steel, has made the fencing more cost effective while improving durability. Wrought iron is popular for fencing, but it’s more typically constructed of an iron core surrounded by a steel polymer. That polymer makes the metal resistant to UV rays and rain.

PVC/Vinyl

The development of pvc/vinyl fencing in 1981 created one of the most enduring alternatives to wood. The technology available enables it to appear as wood or stone and it’s a popular substitute since it won’t warp like wood. New manufacturing techniques enable it to be produced more cost effectively. Some manufacturers even provide lifetime warranties on their pvc/vinyl fencing since it doesn’t peel, crack or chip and its resistant to pests, mold and mildew.

SimTek®

A relatively new addition to the fencing industry, SimTek® has quickly become one of the most preferred materials for fencing in multiple environments. It’s an eco-friendly solution that combines plastic and galvanized steel. It can withstand hurricane winds, is impact resistant, blocks sound, and it’s available in textures that mimic wood and stone. In terms of maintenance, it simply needs to be hosed down to remove dust and dirt.

Choosing the Best Fence to Protect Your Business

There really isn’t a one size fits all solution for fencing based solely on the type of business that’s being operated. The type of fence that’s chosen will also depend on its intended purpose. It may be erected for privacy, security, or safety. You may need a fence to prevent unauthorized people from entering or prevent access to potentially dangerous areas.

Aluminum

Those that choose aluminum fencing have a variety of colors, styles, and designs from which to select. The fencing resists weathering and features low maintenance requirements. It’s often used for housing developments, gated communities, and areas where lightweight yet durable protection is needed. It’s also effective at fending off incursions by wildlife.

Chain Link

A chain-link fence is an economical option that can be installed fairly quickly and is good for large scale projects such as construction sites and warehouse facilities. It’s available in multiple heights, can be equipped with barbed wire or razor wire on top, and it’s see-through so individuals can be seen if they gain access. The downside is that would-be intruders can also see what’s inside. Another area where chain-link fences shine is at animal shelters and for wild animal enclosures.

SimTek®

SimTek® is an undisputed leader for fencing that’s durable and almost completely maintenance-free. It’s offered in multiple styles, colors, and textures. It’s high-impact resistant and very effective at absorbing sound. SimTek® is often used in and near restaurants and bars for privacy, along with housing complexes.

Metal

The choice of metal fencing is typically more expensive than other types but can be customized in multiple ways, whether it’s iron or steel. It’s advantageous around pools, any type of business, and is equally appropriate for parks and schools.

Vinyl

If you’re seeking privacy, a vinyl fence may be the best option. Vinyl fencing can be especially beneficial for blocking off outdoor areas for dining and drinking. It’s equally advantageous for hiding items from view such as AC units and trash bins. The fencing is available in multiple heights, colors, designs, and it’s very low maintenance.

Commercial Fencing for Protecting Your Business

If you’re a business owner, there may come a time when you may want or need temporary fencing for your enterprise. There are a number of options that can be employed singly or in conjunction with others when you need temporary fencing to protect your business.

Temporary Fencing

Chain link fencing offers a good temporary solution for a wide variety of properties. It provides security, can be installed quickly, and offers a cost-effective solution. It deters trespassers and is an excellent way to protect your customers, employees, and vendors from potentially dangerous situations such as construction work.

Another benefit of chain link fencing is that it can be equipped with barbed wire or razor wire at the top for additional security. A cable can also be installed at the bottom to prevent pets and unwanted wildlife from entering.

When specific notices must be posted, it’s easy to display them on chain link and the fencing is effective for containing activity during promotional events. They’re equally effective for restricting access to property during demonstrations, parades and similar events.

Privacy

The unique weather in South Florida means that restaurants, bars and similar establishments can extend their customer space through fenced in patios for al fresco service. There are several types of fencing, including PVC and SimTek, that provides privacy for consumers while aiding in blocking street noise. They’re aesthetically pleasing, impact resistant, almost maintenance free, and eco-friendly options.

Commercial properties such as housing complexes and equipment rentals can also benefit from privacy fencing. On a smaller scale, privacy fencing is a sound investment for hiding unsightly electrical boxes or dumpsters that increases curb appeal.

Barbed Wire

Most people immediately envision a farm or ranch when they think of barbed wire fencing, but it has other uses. It can be added to other types of fencing as an added deterrent to potential trespassers. However, you need to be aware that there are very stringent laws governing the use of barbed wire in any capacity.
