Anyone with a business – no matter how small or large – should give some serious thought to installing a fence as a means of security. If a business is the victim of theft, it can be a huge inconvenience, not to mention leaving them out of pocket. That is why fencing should be considered to keep intruders out. There are many benefits of fencing surrounding property, and here are four different ways that secure fencing deters intruders.


Thieves and burglars will surely rethink their plans when they come face to face with a huge fence. Some fences can actually stretch several metres high, thus leaving intruders stuck for a way to enter the property. Those intruders who are bold enough to try and climb over the fence will find that it’s a lot harder than it looks.


There are certain fences where individuals will have to risk serious injury if they attempt to make it onto the property. For example, some fences include sharp toppings like barbed wire, spike strips, anti-climb guards and concertina razor wire. These fences will have intruders thinking twice about whether it is even worth trying to enter a property.

High security

A fence is the first sign that a property is secure. In fact, it will likely leave intruders questioning what other security measures are in place. Installing CCTV and burglar alarms can be pricey, and they can also fail due to electrical glitches or human error. If your workplace doesn’t have CCTV or burglar alarms, then fear not; a decent security fence will still have intruders thinking you do.


One of the main functions of a fence is to reduce visibility. This means that people can’t see what is behind it – and therefore can’t see what’s there to be stolen. Also, fences generally mean that intruders can’t strategise how to get into the property until they have breached the perimeter. This would hopefully deter them from attempting the crime altogether.

Choose your fence carefully.

There are many different fences available to serve a wide range of properties. Be sure to research what is best for your business, and you can rest assured that you’ll be keeping intruders firmly at bay.
