Perhaps you have just purchased your first business or are looking to move your existing company onto a new property. Whether you are a home or business owner, security will be an important aspect of your new move. You will want to take measures to protect your equipment, inventory, and company assets.
You may consider hiring a security guard to protect your business. Nothing says security like a 6 foot tall 200 pound man standing in your front yard. You may hire one employee for daytime monitoring and another for night time. They could provide an around the clock physical presence to deter any possible burglars or trespassers.
However, for most small businesses, placing another person on the payroll may not sound appealing. You may not want to hire an employee that may or may not actually contribute to the business. A security guard cannot secure every angle of your house. Perhaps they are in the back yard sipping a coffee to stay awake, when a perpetrator attempts a break in through the front windows. They may not be aware of the offender until they have vanished into the night with your $2,000 computer equipment.
Perhaps the strongest preventative measure would be to install a security fence. A simple, white chain linked fence will probably not deter any criminals. You can display as many “No Trespassing” signs as possible, yet a determined burglar will simply disregard and step over the fence.
Consider installing a custom designed perforated metal fence. You can decide if you want your fence to stand 5 feet tall or maybe even 8 feet tall with a cement base. A thick, heavy duty fence would deter most criminals. Rather than waste time considering alternative ways to enter your property, they will most likely move on.
However, you don’t want to completely sacrifice appearance for safety. You still would like your property to look unique and inviting to prospective customers. With perforated steel products, you can design unique patterns that are pleasing to the eye. Perhaps you want to stick with the standard circle or square shape perforations. Or, you may consider using a diamond or octagon design. You can custom design how many holes you would like per inch and their size.
You may even consider having your company’s name and logo implemented into the fence. Perforated metal signage could be custom designed to rest on top your fence. You want to ensure that prospective customers are impressed with not only your company, but also the property. Seeing your logo and name laser designed into the fence or on a signage would leave your customers appreciating your own taste in design and appearance. Consider Oprah Winfrey Casey Key’s property. Nothing says Oprah like the letter O displayed on her driveway gates.
If you have recently purchased property or are looking for a way to secure your business, consider a perforated metal fence. It will offer an intimidating feature that will deter most criminals. However, it won’t sacrifice the overall appearance of your property. In fact, you may find your customers looking for the place with the “fence displaying an eagle.” You have invested a lot of money into your company’s inventory, equipment, and assets. Be sure to secure them.
