When businesses need to protect an open area, lot, or storage area, most often they choose chain link fencing. Security fencing is meant to be a barrier that slows intruders down; however, from my experiences, chain link fencing does not accomplish this and should not be considered security fencing. It does not provide an adequate protection because it can easily be cut, climbed, or crawled under.

Sean,

Good article. Here in Israel we started building a VERY big security fence several years back. In fact if I look out of our back patio, too dark right now, it is clearly visible.

Before the fence was built, there were suicide bombings and terrosits infiltrations VERY regularly. There were bus bombings, cafes blown up, etc.

Now there is the fence, well over a hundred kilometers if I'm not mistaken. Up to 30 feet high in places.

It is controversial, but no matter how you look at it, IT WORKS!

"In 2002, the year before construction started, 457 Israelis were killed by terrorists who had infiltrated. Since 2009 that number has dropped by 90%." (From an article)

I have never needed to fence in a business, but if the "Geder Hafrada," our security fence, is any indication, fences work!
