Are you a small business owner located on a private property? If so, do you have a security fence surrounding that property? If you don’t have one, let Sierra Structures explain why you should add one. 

There are several reasons why you likely need one. For starters, a properly installed fence provides security for your employees’ safety. It’s not just crime you should be concerned about. If you are in a remote area, wildlife can venture on to your business’ site. As an added bonus, any visitors or customers who come to your location will have that extra assurance that you care about their well-being. 

Security fences help control access to your location by requiring everyone to enter through one or two locations where you can provide security or a gate that requires an access badge or code. This way, you know and can control who enters and leaves your business at all times. 

In addition to protecting your employees and visitors, a fence protects your property and buildings as well from thieves, vandals, and other potential threats. There’s less fear that someone may enter your business after hours and do damage or steal property. 

Since most fencing is set up around the perimeter, security fences mark your boundaries. As other businesses set up shop and start construction, they will clearly know where your property begins. 

Besides bring all of the peace of mind described above, one of the key financial reasons is that having a security fence can possibly reduce your insurance premiums. It’s a good idea to discuss with your insurance provider about a security fence and whether they require one or if they offer reduced premiums based on the security your provide onsite.
