Security is extremely important for an office building. The building may contain expensive electronic equipment, furniture, confidential files, and many other items that burglars or unscrupulous competitors would love to get their hands on. Executives may drive expensive cars to work and feel uncomfortable about leaving their vehicles exposed in an open parking lot in the middle of a city. Of course, anyone driving to work and parking in a metropolis area may feel some concern about having a car broken into. For these reasons, many companies opt to build fences all around their property.
A sturdy metal fence around the premises can be the first line of defense against would-be robbers. Often just seeing an intimidating fence surrounding property will deter a crook from trying to break through. He’ll go on to the next building that does not have fencing around it and commit burglary there. Although a fence isn’t a perfect deterrent, it’s inconvenient to have to climb over a fence to get in if there is another place that is easier to rob.
Of course, unless you’re involved in manufacturing top-secret government hardware, you probably don’t want your property to look like a prison camp. You want it to appear friendly and inviting during the day for clients that come to visit. Naturally, you can find fencing that looks nice and even adds a classy metallic appeal to the surrounding environment.
Now, you can easily purchase pre-fab fencing and install it all around your property. But you can also work with a metal fabricator to develop a custom metal fencing solution to protect your land. A company such as Hendrick Architectural Products that has been working with metal for over 100 years and has developed large-scale products for clients all over the nation will have much more know-how than the local fencing business down the street. You can choose from a variety of metals, thicknesses, and hole patterns to suit your specific needs. Want metal grilles around a part of the property? You can have them. You can use profile bars for a tight, thick metal fence that cannot be cut through using any conventional technique. Profile bars also can provide a stylish, modern metal look that allows people to see through to the structures within the fencing.
Combine profile bar metal fencing with a cement bottom for a solid wall that’s even harder to breach. Ever tried climbing up a solid cement face? Unless you’ve got some serious climbing equipment or a way to blast through, you’re not getting through too easily.
You can also consider perforated metal screens, which provide a solid, firm protective edge while allowing high visibility through to the structures inside. You can choose from large and small hole sizes to suit whatever specific needs and desires you may have.
In summary, you can protect your building and feel safe without having a complex that looks like a prison camp. Connect with a custom metal fabricator today to see how you can secure your facility.
