Why choose steel fencing over other fence materials?

When it comes to choosing a fence for your home, you’ll, of course, want to consider the aesthetic effect the fence will have on your home, as well as security and privacy benefits.

Although KP Engineering are experts in wrought iron and mild steel manufacturing, and favour these materials for both domestic and commercial fencing, there are a range of fence materials to choose from.

One of the most popular fencing materials is, of course, hardwood and timber, particularly in domestic properties.

Other materials available for fencing are vinyl, aluminium and chain link, as well as materials like bamboo in milder climates.

However, here at KP Engineering, we’re sure that steel fencing offers the most advantages when chosen as a fence material. Here’s a few reasons why you should choose steel fencing over other fence materials:

Steel fencing is incredibly durable

Because steel is a very strong and long-lasting material, when you opt for a steel fence, you can be sure that it will not fall victim to harsh weather. Ultimately, a steel fence is a long-term investment that is likely to have a very long life time, no matter whether you are having steel fencing installed in a domestic or commercial property.

Steel fencing can be treated to prevent rust

Most steel fencing, including the steel fences available from KP Engineering can be galvanized and treated with a powder coating to prevent rust.

Ultimately, galvanized steel has been treated with a coat of zinc which prevents rusting of the metal.

This is one of the factors that makes steel more popular than wrought-iron fences, since wrought-iron is more prone to rusting.

Steel fencing offers advanced security

Steel fencing is much more secure than timber and aluminium fencing options, as it is extremely difficult to bend and destruct.

This means that steel fencing is often the choice of fence material in commercial buildings, where security is a priority.

Steel fencing requires minimal maintenance

Steel fencing lasts for years and, apart from washing, requires very little maintenance. This is an attractive prospect for those wanting to keep a well-presented home, but do not necessarily have the time to frequently mend, paint and treat other fence materials, particularly wood fences.
