In this article, we will show you why chain link fencing is the right way to present and secure your commercial property in Toronto. Where we have erected them around public facilities and commercial property, chain link fences have enhanced security and allowed property owners to concentrate on their core operations.
To prove that chain link fences are a superior choice over wood and other types of fencing, we will discuss five of their top benefits.
Let’s dive right in:
Benefits of Chain Link Fencing for Commercial Properties
#01. A reliable barrier against thieves and stray animals
Not surprisingly, one of the main reasons why commercial property owners in Toronto choose any type of fencing is for the security it provides. What they also realize is that some fences are secure and more reliable than others.
Because chain link fences can be quite high, they are a much safer option. The fences are also effective at keeping stray animals out of your property as only the smallest rodents can get through their small holes.
#02. An adaptable choice
Where you suddenly feel a need to increase security around your business premises or office, you can easily add post extenders to your pre-existing chain-link fence. This will add height and make it difficult for people to climb over the fence.
Fence extenders can angle in or out depending on whether you want to keep people in or out. By angling the fence extension inwards you make it much harder for people to climb over the fence from within the property. Angling the extension outwards keeps thieves and intruders out.
#03. Chain link fences are highly durable
Easy to install, chain link fences are also highly durable. You can rely on them to provide security and an effective barrier from intruders for many years after installation. But the strength of the fence depends on the gauge you choose. With 13-gauge being the lightest, for commercial properties, the 6-gauge wire is the recommendation because the wire is thick, so it provides the best security.
The size of the wire mesh’s holes is also a marker for the fence’s strength and durability. As with the wire gauge, the smaller the number, the stronger the fence will be. In this case, the number stands for the size of the hole, which ranges from 3/8inches to 2 ⅜ inches. The smaller, 3/8inch hole produces a tighter, more secure fence.
#04. Minimal maintenance required
Chain link fences hardly need any maintenance. Seeing that they are also very durable, this makes them a cheaper option. Wooden fences, for example, need repainting almost every year. If the paint is left to peel off, the wood will rot from all the moisture soaking in.
Another attribute of chain link fences is they can be and are usually protected against rust. This significantly extends the fence’s service life. Even galvanized steel, which is considered the least protected can last many years before you see any rust. Vinyl and powder coatings are the most protective. They will ensure greater durability for your chain link fence.
#05. A smart and professional look
Any commercial entity that wants to be competitive will care about its image. This entails making sure its facilities, buildings, and fences look well-kempt and professional. Chain link fences will give your commercial property a smart and professional look that requires very little effort to maintain.
Depending on the design you choose, your chain link fence can also distinguish your business and set you apart from your neighbors and competitors.
