One of the key things for any business is to secure their grounds, property and buildings. This will not only help protect you from thefts but also from damage to windows, doorways or your outdoor spaces. Of course, one of the most popular ways to achieve this is installing effective perimeter fencing. Security fencing like this not only gives a physical barrier for people to contend with but a psychological one too.
Your security fencing is only effective though if it is in good shape. But just how can broken fencing affect your business?
The main issue with broken or damaged fencing is that it completely derails your whole security efforts. Criminals and delinquents will soon notice when a section is not in top condition and able to be bypassed. However small the section in question might be, they will find it and take advantage of it. This makes your perimeter totally unsafe and the ability to stay in control of your site impossible.
The next way damaged fencing will hurt your business is the image it presents to others. Shabby looking or broken fencing reflects badly on your company and people will begin to think the same about you. Clients will simply think twice about doing business with someone who does not care enough or take the time to keep their site in good order. It could also affect your ability to attract and retain top staff. Many people will not want to work somewhere which is not well maintained.
We have already mentioned that broken security fencing makes it easier for intruders to come in from outside. But it also presents an internal security risk too. Broken fencing gives workers who may be up to no good a way of bypassing your front end security or other measures you might have in place. If they can simply slip off and pass stock through a hole in your fence to a waiting accomplice, they may well take up the opportunity.
At Zaun, All of our posts, panels, gates and painted auxiliary components benefit from a protective zinc layer, and electrostatically applied polyester powder coating to BS1722 p16. In a UK C1 environment, as defined in ISO 12944 p2, this should ensure a useful life expectancy of the fence of at least 15-20 years. Life expectancy in all environments can be extended by maintenance of the fencing with regular washing. Useful life will be reduced if the fencing is damaged. Any coating damage should be repaired to reduce the effect on useful life.
