Security

Security is usually the first reason that people install a fence around their business as it will enhance protection against intruders, thieves, vandals, and other dangers that your business could possibly face. A fence around a commercial property will prevent the business owner and the employees from being interrupted at work by any random passersby, solicitors, trespassers, thieves, and unwanted guests thus enhancing the productivity of the company.

Privacy

There are many positives that exist for the addition of a privacy fence to your commercial property.  Business property can benefit from having a fence erected around it by keeping inquisitive people and curious eyes at bay,  particularly if your business is located in a residential area. By the same token, if the business is located in an area that is not considered safe, installing a fence around it is usually a good idea.

 Aesthetics

Since image for a business is everything, an aesthetically pleasing fence installed around a commercial property will help conceal sights such as warehouses and working areas that may be considered eyesores.  A fence will also enhance the appearance of the business giving it an overall attractive appearance.  With the variety of materials available to choose from, you will surely find a style to suit your business.

Access Control

A fence can prevent safety hazards by identifying dangerous areas and by keeping people away from such regions.  A fence would be a great tool to avoid accidents, complaints and possible lawsuits that may result from a person wandering into dangerous areas of the establishment.

dog-proof fencing

Dog Proof Fencing: Things to Consider when Choosing a Fence

Pets are wholesome creatures in this world, as many consider them to have a significant role in one’s life. Pets such as dogs, cats or birds, etc. require their zone too where they can move freely apart from having their time with the owner.

For dogs, there is dog-proof fencing which gives access to them where they get a certain zone and they are not able to escape. As such creatures are free and they love to run whenever they get an opportunity to do it, dog-proof fencing fills the void gap of allowing the owner to be at peace rather than worrying about its dog pet.

Dos and Don’ts of Dog-proof fencing

There are certain aspects when it comes to selecting a fence. The following blog includes the dos and don’ts when choosing a dog-proof fence.

Fence’s material

The quality material of the fence matters a lot as it is the main lead when it comes to strength.

Don’ts: Choosing a low-quality material fence such as plastic which can be destroyed easily by the pet.

Dos: Choosing high-quality aluminum fences which can resist animals invading it or barreling into them.

As such creatures are full of energy and they are ready to run anywhere whenever they get the opportunity to leap, they never leave a chance to avail themselves of it.

Height of the fence 

The height of a fence provides the maximum or minimum probability of crossing over it if one wants to cross the fence through illegal means.

Don’ts: Choosing a short heightened fence that can be crossed over by the pet easily.

Dos: Choosing such a fence following the pet’s height but taller than the pet.

Huskies can easily leap over a 4-foot-high fence. In such a case, at least 5 feet high fence is preferable.

Distinguishing the Boundary lines 

Boundary lines are essential when it comes to installing fences and boundaries offer a great deal of representing fences whenever some matter occurs.

Don’ts: Installing the fence in a very compressed area where the dog is not being able to move.

Dos: Installing the fence following the property’s limit where the pet gets a wide range of areas where it can play with itself.

By doing such a thing, the dog can run as much as it wants and have its area at least where it can play.

Maintenance 

It is a fact that everything you claim needs maintenance. Without maintenance, the quality of certain objects fades away.

Don’ts: Keeping the fence dirty and never analyzing or short-checking the fence once a month.

Dos: Keeping an eye on the fence once a week by observing its shortcomings or lacking and fulfilling the lacking’s gap.

Maintenance of fences can offer a great deal of more secureness and safety, especially for the pet living inside the fence. Not just to the settlement of the pet but also when it is playing inside the fence or if it tries to go out of the fence.

fence gate

Preventing Your Fence Gate from Sagging

A sagging gate is almost inevitable at some point, simply due to its construction and the way it attaches to a fence. Even a gate that’s been installed by highly skilled professionals can sag over time. Gates are square or rectangular in shape, a framework that’s essentially unstable when fastened to a fence. They’re attached by one side and the weight of the gate makes it droopy and saggy.

A brace run diagonally from one side of the gate to the other is the easiest way to prevent it from sagging. It helps balance the tension on the gate. Other forces also come into play when a gate sags. The mere opening and closing of the barrier accelerates the process over time by loosening hardware that attaches it to the fence.

Excess Weight

A gate presents an almost irresistible temptation to children. Riding the gate while it travels back and forth is a fun game, but it places excess weight on the gate, along with the wear and tear of it opening and closing. That’s just one of the reasons why the gate lock should be placed in a position where children can’t reach it.

Another factor in gate sagging is the size of the post to which it’s attached. The post has to correlate to the size and weight of the fence. A post that’s too small allows the gate to sag because there’s too much weight for the post to adequately hold. A gate post must also be set sufficiently deep to support it and the weight of the gate.

Hindges

The choice of hinges on the gate will also determine the potential for sagging. Just as the gate post is crucial, so are the hinges and screws that are used. The entire weight of the gate rests upon and pivots on the hinge. The hinge must be able to hold the gate, its weight, and withstand multiple openings and closings. Screws must be sunk deep enough in the metal or wood to hold without pulling out of the barrier is to withstand the wear and tear of time.

Safe Holiday Decorating

Decorating for the holidays is a great American pastime and holiday displays are becoming more elaborate every year. As much fun as it is celebrating the season, holiday decorating also accounts for numerous injuries and fires each year. Rule #1 of holiday decorating is to always have a fire extinguisher handy. The following tips are essential for safe decorating.

Candles

Always keep candles on a sturdy base that can’t be easily tipped over and never place them anywhere near flammable objects. Candles should always be monitored and never left burning if there’s no one in the room or at home. A good alternative are electric candles that aren’t reliant upon an open flame.

Cords

Using extension cords can increase the risk of fires. A home’s wiring can quickly become overwhelmed with the extra drain on the system. If breakers or fuses begin to trip it’s a good indication that electrical circuits are being overloaded.

Fake Food

A variety of plastic food and candy items are used for decorations during the holidays. Some are even enticingly scented. The fake food can be confusing to children and pets, so eliminate them entirely or place them where they’re not accessible to kids and pets.

Lights

Examine any lighted decorations for exposed wires, burned out or missing bulbs, loose connections, or damaged sockets. Throw away any lights that have damaged or frayed wiring. Individual bulbs can be replaced if desired – otherwise, throw them away. Always turn off or cut power to lighted decorations before going to bed or leaving the house.

Ornaments

To prevent injuries, choose unbreakable ornaments. Eliminate ornaments that use ribbons and similar items that children and pets can ingest.

Plants

Many of the traditional holiday plants used for decoration are poisonous to people and pets. Be sure to display them out of reach of young children and pets.

Teamwork

Stringing lights, erecting lawn decorations, and creating rooftop displays should always be done with another person. Don’t work alone. If an accident does occur, the other person can render aid or call 911.

Trees

Keep cut trees well-hydrated. They dry out quickly and can quickly catch fire. They should be kept away from heaters and fireplaces. If placed near furnace ductworks, they can dry out quicker and require more water. If an artificial tree is chosen, make sure it’s fire resistant.
