When it comes to perimeter fencing, there are a few different options you could choose from. One of the most popular is metal railings. These can often be seen around villages, towns and cities right across the UK. Next to welded mesh fencing, they offer a distinct set of features that makes them worth considering. But why should you think about choosing them?


One major advantage this type of perimeter fencing offers is versatility. Metal railings are effective and suitable for a whole range of uses in a variety of settings. Whether it is on a high-end housing estate, a small village play area or a city park, they are the ideal choice. As these railings come in various styles and colours, it is easy to find the sort that gives the desired look.

Tough, stylish and durable

Metal railings also offer superb strength and durability when installed. Metal is a tough material and one that will withstand being out in all weathers and the rigours of daily life. So whether they are getting balls bounced off them or people leaning on them, the sturdy design of these railings will handle it. Metal railings also look very stylish and give great visual impact to any area they are found in.


One important aspect of perimeter fencing for many people and organisations is visibility. So put, it is handy to see what is going on through the fencing in many settings. A kid’s play area is a great example as it means parents can always see their child if they are not actually in the play area with them for any reason. Metal railings offer fabulous visibility and are the ideal choice in many situations.
