Downplaying the visual impact of security fencing

15th July 2016

If your premises are particularly high-profile or are located in a high-risk area, security fencing may be essential for their protection. However, you might be hesitant to install security fencing if it ruins the premises’ aesthetic and projects the wrong message to members of the public. If the premises are part of your business, this is likely to be a major concern. However, even ultra-secure fencing doesn’t have to look intimidating. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be noticeable. There are steps you can take to ensure that your security fencing blends seamlessly into your premises’ existing aesthetic.

1. Powder coating

Powder coating is one of the simplest ways to downplay your fencing’s high-security look and make it appear visually appealing. You can powder coat your fencing in whatever colour you choose so that it matches your premises’ current colour scheme. This will naturally make it appear more unobtrusive and ensure that it is in harmony with the rest of the area.

2. Placement

Your security fencing doesn’t have to crowd your premises and impinge on it. If you have sufficient space, you can create a perimeter some distance away. This creates a spacious environment within the bounds of your security fencing, making the fencing itself appear less visually oppressive.

3. Fence toppings

While most fence toppings are designed to add extra security to your perimeter fencing, some are also stylish and visually striking. The right fence topping can really improve the appearance of your fencing by giving it a more artistic or architectural look.

4. Integrated fencing

If your security fencing is completely unobtrusive and vitally important to you or your business, you can opt for a fencing solution integrated into your premises’ architecture. These solutions blend into your premises’ existing style perfectly. As discussed in a recent blog entry, integrated solutions can be slightly less secure than perimeter-based fencing solutions. However, they are suitable for premises that aren’t likely to be targeted by professional criminals.

If you’re worried about the visual impact of security fencing, you can use the techniques and options listed in today’s blog entry to counter-act potential problems. However, don’t hesitate to invest in perimeter fencing and secure your premises because of aesthetic concerns!
