Tips for the correct choice of metal fences

The criteria for choosing a metal fence depends mainly on the priorities of each professional or individual: functional fence? What is easy maintenance? What is cheap? Easy to install? Is it better to opt for aesthetics or security?

Chainwire Fencing Specialist gives us some valuable advice for the correct choice of metal fences.

In all cases, three parameters have priority: the use that can be given to it, the price that can be put according to the budget, and the regulations around the metal enclosures.

Decorative or protective fence

When choosing a fence, the first question to ask is: what is the purpose in dividing the property? Can you simply delimit the property? In this case, perhaps a simple 1-meter-high fence will do.

If, on the other hand, you can also want to be out of sight, you can opt for a more subdued model such as a PVC fence or a wooden palisade.

Know what type of enclosure to choose for the home and what purpose the fence has, for example, to increase the security of the home. A fence at least 2 meters high, made of concrete blocks, stone or wrought iron, will be the most appropriate.

The different types of enclosures

There are several types of solutions for fencing a property. Here is a small summary of the most common and should-be-chosen rigid mesh ranges.

  • Rigid Flexible Mesh - A flexible roll of wire mesh is the ideal solution for delineating steep or uneven terrain, especially in rural areas. Thanks to the wooden or metal posts on the ground, it is easy and quick to install.

However, if you want to be out of sight, it can be combined with a gazebo or a hedge. The small mesh prevents the intrusion of animals, but not that of people, as it is easy to cut.

  • Rigid Wire Mesh: In panel form, rigid wire mesh is preferable for flat or slightly sloping terrain. It can also be installed by sealing the posts fixed to the ground.

More resistant, it is a safer and more aesthetic solution than a flexible mesh, which however does not darken, unless the plants climb it.

  • The classic mesh: it is the most common mesh model for aesthetics, it is available in more or less hidden models and in a wide range of materials. Depending on your needs and budget, you can turn to PVC, wood, aluminum, or even composite wood. Typically installed on a low wall, the installation requires more work than a fence.
  • Fencing or blackout panel - The palisade, also known as a blackout panel, is an alternative to the classic pool security fence and is simpler to install. Made of wood or composite material, it closes the garden while decorating the outside.
  • The wall or low wall: a low wall is most of the time of stone, other times of bricks or cement blocks. It is an ideal solution to obtain a delimitation of rural land. For a more secure delimitation, a wall should be chosen at least 2.60 meters high.

Materials for a garden mesh

Many materials can be used to build a mesh, whether it is classic or not.

The warm and authentic look of wood makes it a highly demanded material for garden fences. With wood, you can get a solid fence, which is resistant to the elements.

An aluminum fence

Aluminum is attractive for the many advantages it has a very particular design style, availability in a wide range of colors, 100% recyclable, does not require maintenance and does not rust.

A concrete fence

Concrete makes a new look for the exterior and can be turned into a design element. The concrete slab fence is known, but much less the very modern one that brings an unstoppable class to the exteriors, and even more so when combined with other materials.
