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.

Is Barbed Wire Legal for my Business Fence?

Barbed wire is a powerful deterrent to would be intruders in any environment. The drawback is that while it may be legal, police warn against barbed wire and similar methods in certain circumstances as the owner could be held legally responsible for any injuries that an intruder sustains. Even posting appropriate warning signage may not be enough to absolve businesses from responsibility and the potential for litigation.

Barbed wire, like razor wire, is prohibited when adjacent to public right-of-ways in a wide variety of commercially zoned districts. Florida has very stringent laws governing the use of barbed wire in any capacity since it can be so dangerous. In non-residential areas, barbed wired can be used for security purposes on top of walls, fences and gates, but must be installed a minimum of six feet off the ground.

Due to its dangerous nature, barbed wire fencing is typically prohibited for use in a number of business environments. It’s usually found atop chain link fencing in industrial and construction settings to aid in the protection of equipment, tools, materials, and to protect against injuries by the general public that may intrude into areas that could prove dangerous. It may also be found to protect utility installations.

No business owner should attempt to hang barbed wire unless they’re fully cognizant of the rules for their specific industry and within their location. Barbed wire is typically the least preferable solution in a variety of situations due to the business owner’s potential liability for injuries should someone attempt to intrude on the property.

There’s a wealth of other options available and the ultimate choice will depend upon the business, usage, and location. The best solution is to consult with a fencing professional who will be knowledgeable of the regulations governing the use of barbed wire in multiple settings.
