The U.S. fencing market is projected to reach $11.5 billion by 2024. Fences and entrance gates are used across the country to border residential properties, as well as commercial businesses. A fence can certainly look nice but provides so much more benefit than a visual boost in appearance.

Here are a few advantages of having quality fencing and secure entrance gates on your commercial property:

  • Powerful deterrent to trespassers — Any commercial business of any size needs to constantly be focusing on security — gates and fences can act as a great deterrent to criminals and trespassers. In order to maximize your business’ security, you should have surveillance cameras in addition to your fencing and gates, but simply having a small fence surrounding your property will keep unwanted trespassers out. The presence of a gate and fence barrier will not only slow intruders down, but will likely cause them to not even attempt to break onto your commercial property. It’s virtually impossible to look inconspicuous while hoping a fence.


  • You’ll actually be saving money — You won’t necessarily be saving too much money if you hire a full-time security team, but installing some electric security gates will certainly help you save some money on asset protection. Fencing isn’t nearly as expensive as some other commercial security measures. Additionally, the presence of a fence and security gate will give you a return on your investment.


  • Improved company peace of mind — You and your employees will feel much more comfortable about coming into work each day if there is a quality security gate out front. Certain gates can even have automatic doors and provide increased convenience, as well as security, for each employee on site.


  • Customizable and long-lasting — No two businesses are exactly the same. Similarly, no two security fence projects are exactly the same. By working with quality commercial fencing services, you’ll be able to have long-lasting fence materials customized to your company’s physical needs.
