Fencing for industrial applications is different from any other property fencing we deal with at FloriFence. While residential and most commercial fences share common uses and styles, industrial fencing must meet a completely different set of needs. Whereas aesthetics and visibility may be important for a commercial fence, security and durability are of the utmost importance for large-scale industrial fencing projects.
Your industrial site needs proper fencing installation. It will help your facility to:
- Prevent unauthorized access to your facility
- Control access to dangerous work sites
- Reduce insurance premiums
- Protect the health and safety of your staff
FloriFence offers several different options for industrial fencing. Before you make your decision, it’s important to know the pros and cons of each fence type, and discuss with your FloriFence contractor which is best suited for your facility.
Steel fencing is the most durable of industrial-grade fencing. It is ideal for applications like highway fencing or perimeter fencing in secured areas. While this fencing is the strongest option for industrial sites, it is also the most expensive and difficult to maintain. Steel needs regular touch-ups of its waterproof coating in order to prevent signs of aging over time.
Aluminum is a lightweight alternative to steel that can be used for a variety of purposes. Though it is not as heavy as steel, it is naturally rust-resistant and more affordable in most cases. Aluminum fencing can be used for enclosing hazardous areas or for places susceptible to vandalism such as large HVAC or outdoor generator units.
Chain link and wire
Chain link or wire fencing is commonly used on industrial sites for perimeter fencing or for areas like parking lots and outdoor worksites. It is not as secure as aluminum or steel, but is very affordable which makes it ideal for covering large areas. Both chain link and wire are available through FloriFence for industrial and commercial facilities.
