United Fence offers many different types of ornamental fencing to combine decorative appeal with the stability of durable, expertly crafted materials. In fact, buyers have used it for more than 50 years to give their commercial property an elegant look and a secure boundary.
If you want a fence with these qualities, then check out these widely used ornamental fencing options, as well as the benefits that they provide. Here are a few fence ideas for your property.
Types of ornamental fencing
This kind of fencing comes in two types: aluminum and steel. Both have served many customers well. Here’s a bit about aluminum and steel fencing options and what they offer your property.
One distinct feature that separates aluminum fencing from other fencing materials is that it doesn’t rust. This makes it an ideal choice for properties in cities with a lot of rain, snow, or high humidity. It’s also 100% recyclable so it’s eco-friendly. On top of requiring no upkeep with expensive toxic chemicals, aluminum fencing can be recycled and repurposed without harming the environment.
If you’re looking for an ornamental fence with lots of strength, steel is your best choice. Although aluminum can resemble steel, it doesn’t compare in weight and durability. For example, whereas a four-foot aluminum panel weighs around 12 pounds, a four-foot steel panel weighs around 45 pounds. This means that once installed, your steel fence isn’t going anywhere without heavy machinery.
Benefits of ornamental fencing
If you’re going to invest in this type of fencing, it’s important that you know exactly what you’re getting out of it. Different fences serve different purposes, so here are five ways that you can benefit from going the ornamental route.
Buyers choose this type of fencing for many reasons. Most value its appearance and the statement it can make about their business and brand. If you want a sleek, minimal design, you can have it. If you want a prestigious look with the “wow” factor, you can have that too. Your fence can be simple or stunning, and the choice is all up to you.
Don’t let the stylish design fool you. Ornamental fencing can protect your commercial property as well as any other type of fence. Your employees, tenants, and customers won’t have to worry about their safety because ornamental fencing gets the job done.
You can also add more security with an industry-leading access control gate system. Whether you’re looking for commercial or industrial gate system options, know that United Fence can provide a range of designs to fit your needs.
Another great benefit of ornamental fencing is that you can customize it. This gives you the versatility and freedom to match the fence with your property’s landscape and your building’s architecture. Not only can a customized fence improve the curb appeal of your property, but it can also improve the value of your property.
This has also already been mentioned, but a major benefit of aluminum fencing is that you never have to worry about rust. Aluminum ornamental fencing doesn’t rust. This means no maintenance for you and no unexpected rust treatment budgeting for your wallet.
And although you can’t avoid the rusting of steel, you can slow the process with a protective coating and an occasional spray with a high-pressure hose for cleaning. If you see wear and tear or damage that worries you, just contact United Fence for a repair.
As also previously mentioned but something we think is worth repeating, aluminum fencing is recyclable. In fact, the Aluminum Association even calls this material “infinitely recyclable.” This means that when it’s time to dispose of your fence, you can take it to your local scrap recycling center to be used again and again.
Fence accessories and tops
Not only can you choose the design of the fence’s vertical bars (also called pickets), but you can also choose what the top of your fence looks like. Here are two options to make your property stand out even more.
These are ball or flat-shaped tops that go on the fence posts. They usually come in black, and they provide a minimal but strong look. They also keep debris and water from building up along the fence.
These decorative tips go on the top of the pickets. They usually look like the head of a spear or a three-point spear, but you can also get a quad flare design for added boldness and a sign of strength. And if you want even more visual appeal, you can choose a fleur-de-lis. This is a stylized lily that has a long history in decoration and fencing.
Fence location ideas
Along with picking out what ornamental fence that you want, you should also think about where exactly you want it on your property. Here are two ideas to get you brainstorming.
This is the obvious choice and one that many property owners prefer. An ornamental fence around your entire property sets property boundaries, keeps out trespassers, and improves the appearance of your property.
If your business is close to other businesses, then you likely have the problem of people using your parking lot who aren’t your employees or customers. There’s also the problem of employees not finding a parking spot in the morning or when they get back from lunch.
This fencing option can make your parking lot exclusively yours while also being visually appealing. Employees value accessibility, and a nice fence with an access control gate will tell them that you value it too.
