If you own or rent a commercial facility, odds are you’re housing some valuable inventory or data inside. Even if you aren’t worried about the replacement cost of stolen computers or equipment, you need to keep your data safe. Managing physical security risks is an unfortunate reality for businesses all over the country. Security planning needs to be simple enough to maintain and strong enough to prevent issues. The best strategy for physical security for businesses is creating layers of security. A metal security fence is a wonderful deterrent to keep unwanted people from gaining access to your business. Here are some of the major benefits of a metal security fence.

Relatively Affordable Cost

Compared to many physical security layers, a metal fence is relatively affordable. It will be around for years longer than a wooden fence as well. Installation doesn’t take that long, and the finished product is an attractive perimeter that also serves as a convincing deterrent to intruders. You can contact metal fence installers to compare your options and make the best choice.  In the end, the money you invest in a fence will be far less than any loss from theft. 

A Metal Security Fence is Low-Maintenance

Our fences are durable and low-maintenance. You don’t have to apply sealants, and aluminum fences are rust-free. Metal is a very durable material, so it’s not going to break down after a few years. A simple annual inspection is enough to see if there’s been any damage to the fence that needs to be repaired. Other than that, they’re very low-maintenance. Businesses choose metal security fences because they’re a good value and get the job done.

An Effective Security Measure

Of course, whenever you spend money on security, you want things to work. Physical security is about prevention. The best metal security fence is one that convinces would-be intruders that it’s not worth their time because it would be too difficult to break through or climb over. A good metal security fence serves as an effective deterrent, so your property is safe, and products, information, or equipment inside are secured.

MFR Corp has helped clients with fencing solutions for years. Our commercial and business metal security fences are the perfect exterior perimeter security solution. Call us to hear more about our products. We are happy to run through the benefits of a metal fence so you can decide if it’s right for your business.

3 Gate Systems To Consider For Your Home or Business

Filed in Blog by on October 3, 2019 0 Comments

gate system
Are you considering adding a fence and gate system to your home or business?  There are many benefits to doing this, like security, privacy, and setting boundaries. With MFR Manufacturing Corporation, you are guaranteed to receive the best gate and fence system customized to the needs of your residence or business. We offer many different fence and gate solutions for every application, and we work alongside architects, engineers, contractors, owners, and facility managers to ensure that product integration is secure and appropriate. There are many benefits to installing a gate system in your fence, but you want to be sure to choose the right one for you. At MFR Corp, we offer three main gate systems that could suit you.

Swing Gates

Your gate system entrance is your first chance to prevent any unauthorized or unwanted visitors. Swing gates offer protection by acting like a door that can swing open side-to-side. They offer either a 90- or 180-degree radius. Because of this, they may take up more space than a gate that opens left-to-right. However, they are also more flexible and easier to use. This is what makes them a popular choice for residential fences. Swing gates are also beneficial for controlling the traffic flow of commercial and industrial areas, such as transportation hubs, airport terminals, and large event venues. A swing gate offers protection against intruders, which makes it a popular choice for these particular businesses or homes. Typically, a swing gate should not be chosen for a high-traffic vehicle entrance due to the swing radius.

Cantilever Slide Gates

A cantilever slide gate is also a common choice for an entrance gate. These are popular in both commercial and industrial settings in search of more security. Typically, they will have an access keypad or guard, allowing security allowance before visitors gain access. These gates operate reliably, have low overall costs, and require minimal maintenance over time. This gate is moved sideways using rollers or wheels on the gate posts.  Many businesses with a strict perimeter or boundary use cantilever slide gates to enforce security policies.

V-track Slide Gates

The V-track slide gate system is a common design in commercial facilities. This gate moves sideways and aligns parallel with the fence when fully opened. As a result, it allows vehicles to easily enter without taking up additional space. The V-track enables the gate to slide open and stay in alignment. Because it uses a track, it may require more maintenance than a trackless slide gate, which makes it more suitable for areas of high security with less traffic flow.

Try A Gate System from MFR Corp

Great gates should be reliable, easy to use, and strong.  At MFR Corp, all gate systems are made to meet the needs of our clients, which is why we offer many customizable choices for each gate system.  It is important to consider space, purpose, traffic flow, gate opening speed, and level of security you want for your home or business.  If you are considering a gate system for your home or business, call us today at 815-318-0843 for a free consultation and estimate.

Have you been thinking of adding privacy, security, or decoration to the exterior of your business? Many of our popular fence systems will offer a solution for you. At MFR Corporation, we build fence systems to meet your business’s needs, whether it be functional or aesthetic. We offer a range of color choices, levels of security, degrees of privacy and visibility, and ornamental features. MFR Manufacturing Corporation, Inc. has created innovative designs to appeal to all business and community needs. When choosing a fence system, it is important to consider our options and the features each choice offers.

Grigliato Fence System

The Grigliato fence system is one of our most flexible and customizable options. It’s suitable for both commercial and industrial purposes. It offers medium- to high-security options. The fence is an electro-forge-welded, galvanized steel bar mesh. This gives you flexibility to choose your visibility depending on its purpose. Our unique railing system also provides many design solutions. Because of this, it appeals to those who want a more attractive fence. Its versatility means this system works in many places. It’s found in schools, military, urban, commercial, residential, and other institutions. This option is the most customizable, so MFR Corp works with you to create a design solution that solves your business’s issues. 

Twinbar Fence System

The Twinbar system is forge-welded, galvanized wire mesh, but it includes one vertical wire sandwiched between two horizontal wires. The vertical and horizontal wires make the Twinbar fencing system virtually indestructible. As a result, it’s a great way to replace old or unsafe chain link fencing. Many people love Twinbar because it’s durable but still looks good. Despite its light appearance, our Twinbar design offers triple strength, durability, and protection. We pride ourselves on the fact that it is more rigid than any other welded wire system on the market. It is also available in a wide variety of colors. Many types of businesses use our Twinbar fencing system. You can find it in playgrounds, railroads, parks, and residential communities.

Amego Fence System

The Amego fencing system is a stylish wire mesh system. It’s priced for businesses that are looking for an alternative to expensive ornamental fences. While it’s a less expensive option, its quality is not compromised. The system is made up of forged-welded wire mesh panels with horizontal reinforcement ribs that provide extra strength and durability. It is a secure fencing system that is difficult to climb. As a result, it blocks intruders from entering. With this system, there are customizable options and colors available to ensure that the fence fits in your landscaping. The Amego fencing system suits a wide array of businesses, including airports, parks, industrial, commercial, and many more.

Securite

Our Securite fencing system is our most suitable option for high security. It is also a welded wire mesh system, but it offers a thicker mesh and a double wire design for added security and protection. Depending on your needs, you can install it with either a horizontal or vertical mesh alignment.  The Securite option is an affordable, durable solution for a business requiring high security.  With its small opening, strongly welded joints, and small mesh, it has innovative features to prevent cutting, climbing, and destruction, no matter the efforts. 

The four main types of fence systems we offer have helped businesses and communities for more than 40 years. We value customization, longevity, durability, and ease of installation. We have designed, manufactured, and installed fences for airports, high-security prisons, government agencies, playgrounds, stadiums, residences, and many other businesses in both rural and urban environments.  Call our team of experienced engineers and architectural designers today at 815-472-9154 to get a quote for your business.

How Custom Metal Fabrication Enhances Your Brand

Branding is crucial these days. Companies from small to large spend dedicated portions of their budgets on it, and specialists charge an arm and a leg to create logos and color schemes. But one area many companies overlook is metal fabrication. Custom metal fabrication is a great tool for enhancing your brand. Here’s how.

Custom Metal Fabrication Leaves a Memorable Impression


Metal fabrication is a great way to leave a lasting impression on customers. It pulls a product out of the sea of conformity and draws attention toward itself. Metal fabrication puts a spotlight on your product.

Also, custom metal fabrication draws attention to your place of business. It entices new business from the outside and unifies the brand on the inside.

Reveals Consistency


People know what to expect when they see your logo. Whether it’s a large logo or a stamped part, when customers begin to see your branding, they start to associate it with quality. This is the point of branding– to make your company well-known and well-liked. Custom fabrication helps accomplish this in a unique way. Cheaper options don’t communicate the quality you want associated with your product like metal fabrication.

Sets You Apart From the Competition


In a consumer world of over-saturated industries and marketing, it’s easy to become drowned out by the visual noise. It’s easy to blend in when you need to stand out. The importance of branding involves the importance of becoming recognizable, and that requires separation. Your consumers need to know your product and company among the crowd of other options.

Custom metal fabrication sets you apart from the competition in every way. Your logo distinguishes your products from those of your competitors. The quality of the fabrication distinguishes it from other lesser quality branding options. The uniqueness of metal fabrication draws the consumers’ attention. 

Communicates Quality


When a company puts effort into the quality of their products, it can pay off in a big way. But unless that quality is communicated, the payoff never happens. Quality is expressed in several different ways. The initial perception of value and the actual performance of the product are the most important aspects. Great products are essential, but it’s not enough to just perform well.

Custom metal fabrication links brand recognition with quality. The benefits are not just short-term but have a lasting effect on your consumers.

Interested in Custom Metal Fabrication?


Call MFR Corp for all of your metal fabrication needs. They have the skills and experience to see your custom fabrication from brainstorming to the finished project. Nothing is too simple or complex for them, and no industry is outside of their wheelhouse. Check out MFR’s custom design solutions to see if custom metal fabrication is the next step for you.

3 Ways a Security Fence Protects Your Business

Securing your business is a necessity. From valuable assets to invaluable employees, and from physical to intellectual property, a lack of security is not a risk worth taking. Having a security fence keeps your place of business protected, and it gives you and your employees the peace of mind to focus on what matters. If you’re unsure about fencing or just don’t know where to start, here are three ways a security fence protects your business.

1. A Security Fence is a Mental Deterrent

The best way to protect a business from criminals is to make sure they never attempt the crime in the first place, but this isn’t always possible. Therefore, the most effective strategy is to use a mental deterrent. This is why security stickers line home windows and neighborhood watches post signs to warn off those with bad intentions. You need to send the clear message that criminal activity will fail at your location. A well-built and well-designed fence will help ensure that potential criminals think twice.

2. Good Design Prevents Climbing

Beyond the mental deterrence of a security fence, the fence itself forms a nearly impossible barrier to cross. A well-designed fence makes climbing difficult or even impossible. Without the ability to climb, getting past a security fence becomes even more unlikely. Our SECURITE Fence System’s openings are too small for prying fingers or climbing toe holds. Leave the fence climbing for children at home. Prevent unwanted guests from hopping onto your business property with a SECURITE security fence.

3. Good Materials Withstand Cutting and Destruction 

A security fence goes beyond the average chain-link or barbed-wire fence. Because of the need for physical deterrence, this kind of fence is made with higher quality materials which are nearly impossible to penetrate with brute force or to separate with cutters. For instance, our GRIGLIATO Fence System provides a high level of rigidity and durability. It does this by utilizing steel bars, electro-forged cross rods, and various mesh sizes to pair with your specific needs. Having a fence resistant to physical force significantly decreases the risk of serious criminal threats.

Take the next step

Check out what we consider the best options for your business. No matter what kind of business you run, a security fence is a useful investment for your property and your people. Above all, make sure you, your employees, and your clients feel confident in your commitment to security. 

Decorative Metal Art Adds a Unique Touch in 3 Ways

Could you use some decorative metal art for your architectural project? Want something unique for your space? Metal art will certainly help you stand out from the crowd. You have so many options for your metal art, too. Do you need an industrial look? A classic look? Whatever your preferences, decorative metal art can give you the perfect finishing touch that will draw the eye and can also help you stand out. MFR specializes in the most unique metal structures. We’ll help you realize your design dreams. Here are just three ways it can add a unique touch to your structure.

Not Your Average Architecture 

First of all, not everybody has metal art in their architecture. These days, most architecture is purely functional. When it comes to a decorative touch, though, metal can accomplish more than most people realize. You’ll have art that stands out. While purely functional architecture is fine, people can easily overlook it. Metal art doesn’t work that way. Since it’s so different from average architectural pieces, it stands out right away. By the way, you don’t have to sacrifice function for form, either. You can absolutely have both. For example, what about a brightly colored bench with interesting shapes? Decorative metal art encourages people to think outside the box.  

Catching the Light 

Thanks to its reflective surface, decorative metal art catches the light in beautiful ways. And if its uniqueness didn’t draw enough attention, its reflectiveness absolutely will. Add it to the places that don’t get much attention on their own. It’ll reflect the light and will also make people pay attention. As a result, places with metallic art often become bright, happy spaces. A lot of parks, for example, use metal art to emphasize feelings of fun and whimsy. 

Focal Point 

Do you need a piece that will tie a theme together? Need something that will also stand out from the rest of your art and architecture? Decorative metal art can do just that. Because of this, if you need a focal point or a centerpiece, then let your metal piece do the job. 

Decorative Metal Art 

Looking for some decorative metal art? MFR has exactly what you need. Whether you have a few vague ideas or a completely detailed plan, we can work with you to bring your vision to life. We’ll work together to create gorgeous metal art to transform your space. Ready to get started? Contact MFR today
