Commercial and federal facilities are busy places that should keep up their high security fence maintenance. Regular maintenance is necessary for all security measures, including your high security fence. 

Update Your Fence to Update Your Security

Generally, you should replace your high security fence every ten years. If your high security fence seems less protective and doesn’t measure up to your standards anymore, replace it. Fencing near a parking lot or street parking may need to be repaired if people bump into it often. Occasionally, you will need to upgrade your high security fence. We have several add-on options for chain-link fences or guard booths. We will work with you to update your security measures to keep your commercial property safe. 

Seasonal Cleanings

Weather can do a lot of damage to exterior security measures. Even with precautions like powder coatings on aluminum to protect against rust, there can be breakthroughs. For ornamental steel fencing, soap and water with a damp cloth will work well. If it is a fenced-in facility, consider hiring a power washer and make sure they use a low PSi setting. Seasonal cleaning will help reduce the amount of debris that accumulates on your fence throughout the year. Some examples of build-up are pollen in the spring, rock salt in the winter, and rainy conditions. At the minimum, some fences only require a cleaning annually. 

Visual Inspections

At the end of each season, take a thorough look at your fencing to make sure it holds up. Check for visible damage like rust, dents, broken linkages. If it looks damaged, it probably is. On your inspection, see if the fence has weak points that need an added layer of protection. Weak points in your fencing may not be evident to you, but it is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to security. Call us, and we will send out a technician to investigate and give you repair options.
