Security fences are generally meant for protecting commercial and residential property and sometimes even events. But do you really know what to look for when shopping for high-security fences? Customers are likely to make mistakes when selecting and installing security fencing around their properties. And when this occurs, your fence won’t likely protect your property or event with 100% accuracy. Select the right security fence that also complements and anchors your security gates too.

Here are the common mistakes to avoid when selecting a security fence:

1. Choosing the wrong type of fence

This is perhaps the most common mistake people make when selecting security fences. Ultimately, the wrong fencing won’t serve the purpose for which you bought it. Different types of security fences have different working abilities and purposes. For instance, prison fencing doesn’t serve the same purpose as school fencing; it must be fit for purpose.

2. Focusing more on fencing designs

The type of fence design doesn’t really have much importance when selecting security fences. However, it’s understandable to want a beautiful fencing design that also enhances the aesthetics of your property.

However, it’s also critical to remember the primary reason for buying the security fence. Security fencing is mainly meant to secure and protect property from any unwanted visitors. So give importance to security first before considering other reasons.

3. Location to be fenced

Where you intend to install your fence also has a lot of impact on the fence’s overall protection ability. Assess the ground to be fenced and ensure that it is solid enough to hold together after installing the fence, or else the ground will start to loosen up and weaken the fence after a few days.
