Which Metal Fence for Your Business Site?

If you have a business site, a school ground, or another commercial property with its own grounds, then you will likely want to use some kind of fence and this will normally be a metal fence. The reason for this is that a metal fence is to a degree, expected, and this then means that a wrought iron fence or chain link fence will lend your grounds credibility/authority. At the same time this provides better security and is a better investment for your company as metal fences are more resilient and less likely to succumb to wear and tear nor malicious tampering.

The remaining question though, is what type of metal fence is best for your business? There are a couple of options but each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Here we will look at what those are and how to go about choosing.

Wrought Iron Fence: A plane wrought iron fence is simply a flat piece of wrought iron that will surround your site and keep people out/in. This is highly effective as a form of security in that it has no weak spots being one large sheet of metal. It won't succumb to force, and nor will it rot or be damaged by termites etc. At the same time a wrought iron fence is very difficult to climb as it's one completely flat piece of metal (and metal is not known for its grip, particularly if you add anti-climb paint) and it also provides the most privacy.

The downsides of a wrought iron fence however come from its strengths. For instance, though you get more privacy this also means you feel more 'hemmed in' by a single flat piece of metal surrounding the property. This means that if you have a school or something you might make the children feel more like 'prisoners' than is intended. A wrought iron fence is also the more expensive option when it comes to fences.

Rod Iron Fence: A rod iron fence means your fence is made from rods of iron, and that means that you don't use as much wrought iron in order to surround your home while at the same time you enable yourself to look out and let more light in. These rod iron fences are often lower than a wrought iron fence or chain link fence, but they also often have points on top which make them harder to climb as they can dig into the hands and feet. They offer less security than a wrought iron fence but cost less and at the same time are more secure than a chain link fence. These are more appropriate for homes, or parks, and perhaps less appropriate for schools as they are easier to climb and might result in an accident.

Chain Link Fence: A chain link fence is the kind of fence you associate with a tennis court. They are flexible and easy to bend, but at the same time made from strong metal wire meaning they're resilient. They are high and hard to climb which makes them good for keeping people in, but it is possible to cut through them where pliers are used.
