What You Should Know About Security Fencing

A quality security fence will help keep your home safe!

To discourage intruders and would-be burglars from gaining access to your property, security fences play an important role in keeping your property, investments, and family safe. You should consider the quality, features, and added accessories that come together to truly turn a fence into a security fence. Here’s what you should know about security fencing.  

Fence Details

There are some specific details that your fence should include to truly be considered a security fence. The first deterrent is simply its position on the perimeter of your property. Intruders are looking for the simplest way to gain entry and the easiest targets. Having a security fence gives them one more element that they would need to bypass. Height is especially important as it makes the fence less scalable. Most residential fences have a height limit of six feet, but commercial security fences can feature added security panels. When selecting a security fence, go for an intimidating aesthetic and include security signage that warns would-be intruders of the consequences of entering your property.

Security Gates

An effective security gate should be strong, and feature bolted or welded hardware. The bolt threads should also be stripped to prevent them from being removed. If your security fence features more than one gate, each should be as reliable as the next. Be sure that they each have been assembled with high-quality materials, including reliable locks that are powered by either hard wire or solar power.


Consider adding technological elements to your security fence, including motion sensors that will turn on lights, security cameras to capture and record people that approach your property, or an intercom system for authorized entry. Electric wire, barbed wire, and barb wire arms will also enhance the security of your fencing. Ensure that these elements have a reliable power source to ensure that they are always in working condition when you need them.
