Chain-link fencing is the best fencing material for many industrial, commercial, government, and public applications. Due to its durability, strength and various height options, professional installed chain-link fences provide a perfect safety barrier to deter people and animals away from potentially dangerous or sensitive structures such as electrical substations or mine sites. For more protection, barbed wire or razor wire attached to the top of the fence discourages any attempts to breach a perimeter.
Other uses of chain-link fences include correctional facility containment, airports security, highway projects, baseball fields, tennis courts, military bases and more. The open weave of the wiring allows maximum transparency to support observation of activities both within and outside of the fencing. Fencing is available in a variety of gauges and sizes depending on the particular function of a fencing enclosure. Customized gate construction is available as part of the fence installation.
Because of its metal makeup, industrial-strength metal fencing does not bend, providing a rigid barrier. Non-residential fencing for commercial and industrial sites has posts with a larger diameter and heavier wall pipe to maximize strength.
An added benefit of chain-link fencing is affordability. Compared to other fencing options with similar strength and visibility benefits such as wrought iron, chain link fencing helps keep costs down. Non-residential chain-link fencing for commercial and industrial sites involves posts with a larger diameter and heavier wall pipe to maximize strength. Of course, proper installation is required to maximize the function and durability of the fencing.
When requesting bids from professional fencing contractors for a chain-link fence installation, it is important that all bids adhere to the same specifications. Lower bids can result when specifications are unclear or bids contain different gauges and sizes of fencing components, making them difficult to compare.
Selection of a professional chain-link fence installation company should be based on several factors aside from the bidding process. Professional installers with extensive experience in commercial and industrial jobs are most likely to offer the level of skill required to meet any fencing goals. Look for a company that has a firm reputation with professional associations such as their local chapters of the Associated General Contractors of American, or Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. Some other good ways to find the best fencing contractor is to see if they have won awards, look through their portfolio, and to ask for references from other customers.
Don’t forget to find out about the contractor’s safety program and safety record. Fence installation professionals that are bonded and licensed and have an exemplary safety history are at least if nor more important than price itself. Experienced contractors will gladly offer you a free consultation.
Strength, value, security, and professional installation combine to make a commercial or industrial chain-link fence the preferred solution for most projects. With the added bonus of being rather quick to install, your fencing project will be completed right when you need it.
