Benefits of industrial metal fences

Below are the top three reasons why industrial fencing pays off.

Sturdy and robust metal fencing will potentially protect your industrial premises from theft. It is important to have highly functioning security fencing, especially if you have expensive machinery or equipment on the premises. 

2. Safety

Having industrial fencing in the right places on your premises can keep your employees, as well as external visitors, safe. It includes wildlife. 

3. Aesthetics

A strong well-installed and well-maintained industrial metal fencing can increase the value of your premises by improving the aesthetics.

Maintenance of industrial fencing

Industrial metal fencing, simply due to its environment, can gather a significant amount of dust, dirt and debris. It is essential to clean it at least twice a year to ensure that external factors will not create an environment perfect for moisture, which we know can lead to rusting of your metal fence. If the fence is located near the coast, it is advised to wash your fencing every three months.

How to clean your metal fence? With a broom, remove any cobwebs and debris. Then wash the fence with a mild solution of soap or non-abrasive kitchen detergent with warm water. For more stubborn dirt stains, use a soft sponge. Lastly, rinse the fence with clean water.

Ongoing maintenance is also necessary to identify any damages in the fencing’s overall structure (for example, leaning posts), paintwork or loose palings. Once detected, the damage should be fixed as soon as possible to avoid further damage to your industrial metal fencing.
