What does your fence say about your business?

folder_openCorporate, Industrial

Security fencing is the backbone of most security systems. It stops most petty criminals, vandals and intruders in their tracks and can even deter more organised, well-equipped criminals. It is also an obvious security measure and therefore sends a clear message that your business or organisation is safe and properly protected. This doesn’t just warn prospective intruders away: it can also reassure customers and other members of the public. However, because security fencing is so visible, it’s important to make sure it doesn’t clash with or undermine the appearance of your site or premises. It must support and complement your public image. Luckily, there are several ways you can ensure your fencing does this.

1. Powder coating

The colour of your security fencing makes a huge difference to its aesthetic impact and can therefore affect the way your premises or site is perceived. That’s why having your bespoke security fencing solution powder coated is highly advisable. You can choose from a wide variety of hues when powder-coating your fence, so it should be easy to find one that reflects your business or organisation’s public identity. It’s also worth noting that powder coats tend to last longer than other types of paintwork.

2. Laser-cut shapes and logos

It’s easy to attach metal shapes or logos to your fence. These can dramatically improve its appearance while reinforcing your public image. Laser-cut shapes and logos help personalise a security fence, making it seem less intimidating and remote. However, it’s worth remembering that while they generally make fencing appear friendlier, laser-cut logos and shapes can be used to cultivate any public image.

3. Fence shape and design

Lastly, it would help if you remembered that security fences come in a wide variety of different shapes and designs. For example, some curve at the top gives them a slightly whimsical appearance, whereas others have straighter, more rigid shapes that make them appear more imposing and stately. We recommend choosing a style of the security fence that matches your business or organisation’s identity.

Here at Zaun, we can provide a wide variety of different fences and laser-cut fencing decorations. We even offer powder coating! So if you need a security fencing solution that also looks fantastic, get in touch with us today.
