How Secure is Your Security Fence?

Security fencing is intended to keep your business, construction site, or home safe from intruders and theft. As the name suggests, the whole idea is security – but how secure is your security fencing? It is worth running through the list below to make sure your fence is keeping your valuable belongings safe, and keeping trespassers out. Security fencing is critical to many Perth businesses. Is yours up to the mark?

Fence height

It seems obvious that higher fences are harder to climb, but how high should your fence be? Usually security fences higher than 8 feet are a good choice to deter potential thieves. Not only are higher fences harder to scale, they are also a psychological deterrent.

Barbed wire

It might seem a little barbaric but barbed wire and razor wire serve a real purpose. Again, it serves as a psychological repellent as well as an obvious physical barrier. Perth security fences with barbed wire mounted on a 45-degree angle out from the fence are even more effective at keeping people out.

Mesh size

The higher the mesh, the harder it is to climb. If trespassers can’t get a foothold, then they will really struggle to get over the fence – a 50mm diamond with a 2.5 wire thickness is most common on security fences. However, if you need a sturdier, more permanent security fence then a 50mm diamond with a thicker wire diameter of 3.15 will make it much harder for determined thieves to cut through; you may also want to consider plastic coating to give your security fence a longer life – perfect for keeping intruders at bay!


How many gates do you need, and how many do you have? This is an important question to ask when planning security fencing as installing too many gates can open entry points for trespassers. In our experience, the most common incident involves thieves entering through gates that have not been locked, or fitted with poor quality security measures.
