2. Security: Which garden fencing solution is best for security?
When it comes to fencing, security is arguably the most important. It’s what a fence is made for. There are several factors that determine the level of security in a fence. From overall strength and longevity of the fence posts, to height, and your choice of fence panel.
It’s fairly obvious that the taller your fence, the more secure it is. While closeboard fence panels offer more protection than openboard.
But what are the differences in security between timber, concrete, and steel?
Durability plays a huge part in how secure your fence is, and this is where timber falls behind. Prone to rotting and warping in wet conditions, a damaged timber fence won’t stand for long in strong winds.
Similar to timber, concrete posts are surprisingly prone to damage. Wear and tear is a major issue with concrete fence posts, especially when faced with excessive wind and rain environments. This can cause cracks and chips to the surface, exposing interior wire reinforcements – weakening the structure.
Made from galvanised steel, DuraPost doesn’t rot, split, warp, crack, or chip, giving your property the security it deserves. DuraPost even withstands winds of up to 110mph. Put simply, concrete and timber are no match to duraPost when it comes to security.
