Modern Commercial Fence Solutions

Chain link and wood have long been thought of as the go-to materials for inexpensive, sturdy, and utilitarian commercial fence applications. 

But today we see more and more businesses investing in durable, low-maintenance materials like vinyl, steel, and aluminum or using a creative combination of these materials to suit their budget and the needs of the property. Here are just a few examples of how and why these materials are increasingly being used in modern commercial fence solutions:

Self-Storage Facility

The need: A new self-storage facility wanted to install a chain link fence around the entire building to add security and increase customer trust/attraction to use the facility.

The solution: In the end, the manager chose to go with an ornamental steel fence around the entrance and front end of the property that would be seen from the street, and chain link fence behind the rear of the building. The ornamental steel fence provides a more attractive customer-facing entrance, while using chain link for the back helps cut down on overall cost.


The need: A new bank wanted to build a secure, tidy-looking exterior to help build brand loyalty and keep customers coming back. The fence would also provide separation from adjacent businesses.

The solution: Wood was attractive, but would need more upkeep than vinyl. Vinyl was the perfect low-maintenance choice. Available in a variety of attractive colors, it was easy to find something that would compliment the exterior of the bank.

Fast Food Restaurant

The need: The restaurant wanted something low-maintenance that would offer additional privacy and security for residences located behind the restaurant’s property.

The solution: While wood may have been cheaper upfront, the restaurant chose to go with vinyl for its low-maintenance and durability. The fence would offer a good amount of privacy to neighbors and be a "good neighbor fence"; attractive to those on both sides.
