Residential and commercial properties alike face security concerns, and a new fence is an excellent way to stay protected. While wood and vinyl are great for privacy, chain link is uniquely suited to applications where security, visibility, and durability are critical. Best of all, chain link fences are remarkably affordable. If security is your primary concern, contact the team at Hercules Fence of Richmond to learn more about chain link fence installation.
Chain Link Fences are Ideal for Security
There are many different kinds of barriers that can be used to secure a perimeter, but few are as synonymous with security as chain link fences. Chain link is a popular choice for security applications because of its height, strength, visibility, and affordability. Lines of sight are critical for security guards, cameras, and concerned homeowners, and chain link provides unparalleled visibility while also creating a significant barrier for trespassers. The material’s affordability and customizable height allow property owners to install as much fencing as they need to maintain a secure perimeter without breaking the bank.
They are Incredibly Durable
With chain link fences, home and business owners do not have to sacrifice strength for affordability. Chain link is remarkably durable and able to withstand the harshest conditions. There are also plenty of coating options available for even greater weather protection, including vinyl and zinc. Unlike wood, chain link fencing does not require staining or sealing, and the material is not vulnerable to rot or insect damage. Maintenance is as simple as hosing off any dirt or debris, using a light scrub to dislodge any stubborn grime.
Chain Link Fences Don’t Have to be an Eyesore
While chain link is an excellent material for security, some home and business owners shy away from the material based on its look. Or rather, the look of an old, rusted, and broken chain link fence. In reality, chain link fences don’t look half bad. There’s nothing better in terms of providing security while preserving a stunning view from your property, for instance. Vinyl coatings or slats can provide a pop of color, and many homeowners use chain link fences to train their vining plants. Some fences get a bad rap, but the truth is that a well-maintained chain link fence can enhance your property’s look rather than detract from it.
