Having such a wide variety of choices in the Melbourne fencing industry, it may be difficult to choose suitable commercial fencing for your property. This post may help you decide which option is the best for you as not all fencing alternatives offer the same benefits to your premises.
When it comes to commercial sites, two aspects are on the top of the list: safety and security. Other important factors, if not equally important, are durability and budget. Thus, let’s focus on some of the fencing options for commercial fencing purposes in Melbourne.
Commercial fencing types
There are various commercial fencing types. We will shortly describe each of the fencing alternatives and provide some of the benefits.
Colorbond fencing is a popular commercial fencing choice due to its being highly secure and private. It is not only aesthetically pleasing but also offers good functionality.
Colorbond steel is made from a durable ZINCALUME® core and has a baked-on corrosion inhibitor sealed with a tough painted finish. Exterior grade paint is also baked on. Thus, creating steel that is resistant to chipping, flaking, and blistering. The process used in creating Colorbond steel ensures that commercial fencing made out of this steel will last for many years to come. Furthermore, Colorbond steel fences are low-maintenance fences, allowing you to spend the time that would otherwise go on maintaining the fence on something more useful.
Tubular steel fencing is also suitable for commercial fencing purposes. These fences not only look good due to having the flexibility to custom-design the fences, but they are also extremely durable fences. Therefore, offering the security your commercial property might be seeking.
Tubular fencing are typically made of steel or aluminium. Aluminium is naturally corrosion resistant. However, tubular steel fences are usually galvanized to apply a zinc coating that will make the steel fence moisture resistant.
Both fencing types are low-maintenance fences that may require biannual cleaning and check-up to make sure no further damage has been done by exterior factors.
Tubular steel fences can additionally be powder coated to offer even further protection from corrosion while allowing you to choose the fence colour you like.
Some tubular fencing applications for commercial purposes include privacy fences, swimming pool fences, public play areas and security fences for commercial properties.
Aluminium fencing comes in various types. Some of the most popular choices include either vertical or horizontal slat fences. The slat height and width also vary, depending on the level of privacy you are after.
As mentioned above, aluminium fences are low-maintenance fences as they are naturally corrosion-resistant. Hence, a good fencing solution for large commercial sites.
Chain link fencing is used not only for industrial or domestic purposes but also for commercial properties. The difference between domestic and commercial chain link fencing is that commercial chain link has much larger diameter posts and heavier wall pipe for both posts and top rail. The diameter of the diamond of the chain link mesh will depend on the preference and the security level desired.
Chain link fencing is one of the cheapest fencing alternatives, thus, suiting large commercial sites if you are on a budget. Please contact Diamond Fence’s fencing specialists for fencing quotes or more information.
PVC coated fencing
At times, some commercial fences require more protection from corrosion, depending on the location. An additional protection measure is adding plastic coating, also known as PVC coating. A fencing type that is usually PVC coated is chain link fencing.
When the aesthetic look matters, you can add various ornaments to your existing or new fencing. Some of the ornaments include metal spikes, latches, scrolls, rosettes, pickets, rings, pressings such as leaves or flowers, twisted tubes, spheres and hemispheres, etc.
