industrial electric fencing
Electric fences around small businesses, security complexes and residences are usually small in terms of cost, complexity and extent. However, large businesses, the military and industry may want to protect larger areas and would require large-scale industrial electric fencing services. Here are a few examples:
- Large vehicle stockyards or dealerships
- Prisons and prison facilities
- Commercial and industrial property
- Utility companies
- Marinas and airports
- Military or government installations
Electrical fence providers would often design an electric fence system for an industrial client that is tailored to the client’s needs and specific application. Heights can vary and electrical supply and voltages depend on several factors.

Industrial electric fencing is usually equipped with monitoring facilities to find faults easily and quickly and avoid downtime that may pose a security risk through a perimeter breach. There are frequent inspections and the fence is well maintained to keep energy consumption low.
Here are some of the advantages of an electric fence:
- Easy to install on existing fences or walls
- A physical as well as a psychological barrier
- Delayed intrusion time
- Reduced security personnel cost
- Low maintenance. Most components are stainless steel, galvanised, powder-coated or aluminium
- Fence activation may be linked to an alarm to alert security personnel that a breach was attempted
Industrial electric fencing is often coupled with CCTV systems. This enables security personnel to view the section of the fence that was activated to see whether further action is necessary. Animals that live close to a fence quickly learn not to touch it and are usually not repeat offenders.
