Strong, Thick, and Built to Last
Industrial fencing should be strong, thick, and built to last for years to come. It should also be affordable and easy to order.
Industrial properties need plenty of security. From security guards and security alarms to security fences, most property owners with any type of industrial building will be ready to purchase the best-quality security items for the property. Thankfully, you won’t have to pay an exorbitant amount for a top-quality fence if you choose aluminum.
The Beauty of Aluminum
Industrial metal fencing can be purchased in wrought iron, but the preferred metal these days is aluminum. Aluminum is easy to order, a breeze to install, and needs minimal upkeep to keep it looking as good as new for a long time to come.
One reason aluminum stands apart from iron is the different oxidizing process involved. When water or moisture hits iron, the metal begins to rust, causing an unsightly orange oxidation that flakes off as the metal deteriorates. This is not what you want for a fence that needs to stand tall and strong for the security of everything on your property. Aluminum oxidizes in the opposite way; moisture actually causes the metal to become thicker!
Although thicker industrial metal fencing sounds ideal, it’s actually not very attractive once it oxidizes. That’s why there is a powder coating applied to the panels, posts and parts to keep moisture and water away from the aluminum. Industrial metal fencing is already thicker compared to residential or commercial fencing, allowing for an even stronger perimeter for your buildings. This type of fence also comes in various heights to allow for added protection.
How Industrial Properties Benefit
Cleaning any aluminum fence is pretty simple, and the same is true even for the biggest, toughest industrial fence. The person chosen to clean the fence will find that a quick wash with mild soap and a wipe-down between seasons is enough to keep the fence in good condition. It is important that the person who is cleaning the fence keeps an eye out for any scratches or dents that may have compromised the important powder coating. This can happen more frequently at industrial properties that have a lot of large machinery and debris, but it can be easily remedied with a little touch-up.
Ordering aluminum fencing could not be easier thanks to the internet. Instead of visiting store after store hoping to find a style or color you want, everything is easily accessible at your fingertips. This can help when there are multiple interested parties making the decision about the fence type, allowing everyone who will benefit from the fence to be on board with the final choice.
There are plenty of decisions to make when ordering a fence. The first is the style and look, with choices ranging from elegant to classic to customized for your company. Next is sizing, with many options available to match your property. Then you will need to do some measuring to ensure you purchase enough panels for the job. Last but not least is the choice of how much privacy you want. You can rest assured that once you have picked the perfect industrial fence, you will have a safe, secure and attractive property.
