How does security fencing protect your property?

Posted on in Helpful Guides, Property Protection, Security

Property is one of your most valuable assets so it’s important to take steps to protect it. One of the best ways to keep commercial premises safe is to consider installing security fencing. Whether a temporary solution to keep trespassers out of construction sites or empty premises or an investment in the long-term security of your business, Maltaward’s experts can advise on the best solution for your situation.


What is security fencing?

Security fencing is purpose-built to provide maximum security for buildings, storage areas and open spaces. It is designed to withstand force and prevent penetration. It offers a number of enhanced security features when compared with standard perimeter fencing.

These include:


A powerful visual deterrent

Surrounding a site with modern, high-spec fencing shows criminals that your premises will not be an easy target for break-ins. In addition to providing an obvious barrier to your buildings, investing in quality security demonstrates that you take the safety of your assets seriously. It sends the message that any attempts at gaining entry will be futile.


Difficult to climb

One of the obvious ways trespassers attempt to access a site is by climbing over barriers. Steel palisade fencing makes this almost impossible. One of the most popular choices for securing commercial sites, this fencing is constructed using two horizontal running rails to which vertical joists are attached. It isn’t easy to gain a foothold on this kind of fencing. In addition, it can be up to 3m high and for maximum protection, the vertical joists can rise to a point or even a triple point, risking injury to potential intruders.


Maintains privacy

One of the biggest advantages of professional security systems lies in deterring crime. Installing the right type of barrier around your property prevents break-ins by shielding your assets from sight. Solutions such as closeboard fencing stop criminals from getting close enough to spot what lies behind, so reducing the likelihood of anyone attempting to gain entry. In the case of vacant premises, fencing shields the site from view, reducing the chance it will become a target for squatters.



Here at Maltaward, we understand that there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to maximising the security of a site. That’s why all of our fencing options can be tailored to the exact requirements of your business or premises. Our options include temporary Heras fencing, which is lightweight and easy to transport and install yet also strong and difficult to climb to protect your assets. We also offer standalone wireless CCTV systems that do not need to be mounted on a tower so can be added to any fence or posts to increase coverage of a site. Whatever your requirements, we have the solution.


Boosts your peace of mind

Whether you are shutting your premises down for the evening or you have a vacant site that you want to protect for an extended period, choosing professional fencing means you can rest assured that your valuable assets are secure. Once your choice of fencing has been installed there is very little you need to do in maintaining it, so you can sit back and relax in the knowledge you have taken all necessary steps to maximise the safety of your property.

If you’re ready to discover how best to secure your premises, call one of our experienced team today. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of the industry and we thrive on challenge. Let us help protect what matters to you.

I have been using Maltaward for about 12 years, mostly using their traveller eviction services. They have always been very helpful and easy to deal with. No fuss, just get the job done! More recently in my new company, I have brought them in to use utilised their vacant security services. They have worked with me to provide the correct service for our specific requirements. They have a common sense approach to everything. I really cannot recommend the team enough. They have been without a doubt the best security company I have been involved with.
