There are a lot of people that see the advertisements for a security fence and think that they could never use one because they live in the city, or they do not have a dog, or they are in a gated community so they are safe from theft. A lot of those people are severely disappointed when they get to church on Sunday morning and discover there is no heating and air conditioning because someone stole the wiring that connected the unit to the main building.
A security fence placed around the exterior portion of the central heating and cooling units at the church could have prevented the thieves from being able to access the wires. Times are tough and a lot of people have begun to sell scrap iron for money. The copper that is used to connect the air conditioning unit to the building sells for a lot of money at salvage yards. With the economy like it is there is more theft and robberies happening.
A security fence needs to be placed around commercial properties that have anything they leave outside. If you work on cars that belong to other people, or if you have tools and equipment that must stay outside then you have a need for a security fence to protect those items. You need to have a fence that is eight foot high or taller in order to protect your property.
You are going to be sadly disappointed if you think that living in a gated community is going to prevent you from ever being robbed. A gated community will reduce the number of times you are robbed, but it will not stop a thief. The thief could very well live in the same community as you and have free access to your home when you are not there. You need to install security measures like alarms, outside lighting, and fences when you live in a gated community. Never take for granted the fact that thieves spend their whole lives trying to think of ways to outsmart their victims.
Schools, daycares, and any location that has children coming to play outside needs a fence in place to keep the kids from being able to run into the street. These barriers keep the outside world at a distance so that the children get to be free to run and play without constant fear. The adults watching the children in these locations will be able to spend more time helping the kids learn and less time worrying about their safety.
There are hundreds of reasons to build fences. There is an old saying about these barriers that says “fences make good neighbors”. That means that when you have an established boundary you will have fewer disagreements over who owns what property, or whether your dog was in your neighbor’s yard. Fewer arguments between neighbors will make you like the people next door a lot more. So build a fence and define your property from theirs.
