The Advantages of Sustainable Security Fencing
Many security fences are made from steel palings that are attached to steel horizontals similar to the design of a timber paling fence. The difference may be that there is a concrete footing along the bottom so that no access can be gained by digging a hole under it. Security fencing of all kinds does an essential job of keeping assets safe and preventing harm from coming to people or animals.
Steel is sustainable
Steel fencing can be said to be sustainable or environmentally friendly because it can be reused and recycled. For instance, when wire fencing is no longer required around construction sites it can be taken down and used somewhere else. Steel also has a very long lifespan so it may also be taken down and re-used in another application. But even if it is not, it is so durable that it will last for many years. During this time there is really nothing in it that can cause harm to the environment.
Use appropriate fencing for the job
When you need to use security fencing, it is essential to use what is appropriate, whether it is wire mesh, chain link or steel rods. Sometimes, what you use will actually blend into the environment so it is not going to cause any harm, even to the look of the place. Wire mesh wending its way through bush and scrub is almost invisible.
Use colour to create aesthetics
Steel security fencing may not blend in so much, but if you choose a colour such as green, it won’t really be a blot on the landscape. In any case, it does a good job of protection and it is a necessary part of today’s society. It would be far worse scenario if children wandered onto a dangerous site and were injured. Or if intruders broke into a house and caused loss and injury.
The making of steel and wire create many jobs, so it is something that cannot be dispensed with any time soon. And there is really no viable alternative when it comes to security fencing. It is an essential protection that cannot be done without, providing a physical barrier that keeps people and animals safe and protects assets.
It gets the tick
When there are so many benefits, whether or not it can be considered environmentally friendly is really a moot point. However, the fact that it does, in fact, provide safety not only to humans but to animals and in many cases, wild animals, must be a point in its favour and give it a tick on the eco-friendly side of the equation. And of course, such fencing can also provide safety to flora that could otherwise be trampled out of existence, so that is another tick for it.
