​Different Types of Security Fencing

Published on May 22nd, 2019

Determining which type of security fencing is best for your application will depend on the level of protection required. Do you need something particularly impenetrable for the foreseeable future, or would something less substantial suffice?

In this blog, we take a look at the different types of fencing to help you know what to expect when it comes to these common products.

Chain link fencing

Tubular security fencing systems clad with Chain link fencing is very flexible and can be used to delineate boundaries, provide security, or even around sports pitches and courts. They can be galvanised or powder coated to help the fence blend in a little more. If you need particularly high security, barbed or razor wire can be installed at the top of the chain link fence. We offer two specially designed fencing systems with three extension arm choices providing different levels of security.

Mesh panel fencing

Mesh panel fencing is particularly popular because of its relatively attractive appearance. Typically used to provide medium security, this type of fencing provides an attractive perimeter fence, allowing people to see both in and out, without compromising on security.

Palisade fencing

This type of security fencing, is popular for those needing a strong barrier against thieves and vandals. Constructed from hot and cold rolled steel sections, palisade fencing is available in either a ‘D’ or a ‘W’ profile, with ‘W’ providing the highest security of the two.

The open slots of palisade fencing, plus its range of heights, finishes and colours, make palisade fencing flexible and relatively attractive. Almost impossible to climb, you can choose to make palisade fencing even more impenetrable by adding pointed pales to the top of each steel vertical. Perfect for fencing for schools.

Additional considerations

Although you want to keep intruders out, you also need to be able to access the protected site, as do any permitted visitors. This means that you need to choose an appropriate security gate.
