Selecting a Fence If privacy is the watch word in your selection youll want something relatively tall, without gaps, durable but cost effective. Often youll find that timber fences will cover all these bases for you. Youll be looking at a typical fence panel fence initially on the basis of cheapest price and easy installation and height options. Fence panel fences come in standard heights from 3ft through to 6ft, and being of standard width they are easy to install and maintain over time.
Selecting a Fence : If decoration is your main concern then your choices are starting from the least expensive: wooden trellis fencing, picket fencing, decorative fence panels through to many varieties of metal railings. Budget and appearance will be the main deciding factors, although generally the more you spend the more durable the fence will be. The common factor with declarative fences is that they are usually short on privacy and security, but if used as internal dividers on your property they can be nice additions to the garden. Metal railing fences can offer a degree of security without privacy and are often the best, but most expensive selection for perimeter fences.
Selecting a Fence : If security is your aim youll be looking for a fence with height, structural strength but a solid fascia may not be so critical. The best security can be achieved with a rigid mesh fence system mounted on steel posts in heights from 6ft through to 8ft, or alternatively a steel palisade fence which can be purchased up to 3m high. The problem with steel fences is that they are great for industrial or business situations but can feel like a prison when used in a domestic context. If you are looking for improved home security then you will want the strongest, tallest timber fence you can get to hide your property, prevent intruders scaling the fence and offer a solid boundary such as a close board fence or if you are not so concerned with privacy then a chain link fence which can be constructed to greater height and is harder to climb than a timber fence. A close board fence will be more expensive than a fence panel fence but being mounted on heavier section posts and coming in more height options will offer a higher degree of security than fence panels.
Uses of fences o Perimeter - Fences are used to mark perimeters and boundaries. These are important to prevent trespassing and also to protect children and pets from wandering. o Agriculture - This fencing is used to keep livestock in and keep the predators out. o Privacy - Fences provide privacy when placed around a building. o Landscaping - Many times fences are used just for the decorative purpose. They are used to distinguish an area or flower beds. Also they are used to close in a pond or pool. o Boundary Fencing - These fences are used to define the bounds of a property and are sometimes even electrocuted or barbed to ward off trespassers. o For areas like airfields, prisons, military areas, zoos, swimming pools, open air entertainment areas that charge an entry fee, explosive factories and facilities with high voltage transformers, fencing is of utmost importance.
