Choosing the right fence for your business or home can pose many important questions. If you are adding a fence to your property, one thing to consider is the environmental impact of your newest addition. Thinking about these relationships shows that you care about the planet, other people, and creatures of all kinds. However, it can also affect your own physical and mental wellbeing. Fencing systems that are not environmentally friendly could harbor harmful substances for you to breathe in or interact with. As a result, environmentally responsible fencing is the best investment you can make for a new fence project.

Honesty, integrity, quality products, and a forward-facing attitude regarding environmentally friendly practices are at the heart of what we do. That means you get more than just a reliable and durable fencing solution. You also get a fence that is safe for your property and environment that lasts a lifetime. What more could you ask for from your trusted fencing experts at MFR Corp? You can learn more about our philosophy for the best fencing solutions on the market by visiting our website. 

Consider Where You Live 

One of the most important steps of adding a fence to your property and being environmentally friendly is understanding where you live. While most of us are familiar with where we live, we have not truly examined the surrounding environment in depth. Learning about how adding a fence to your property might affect nearby plants and wildlife is the first step to making a conscious choice in your investment. The good news is that most fencing solutions won’t pose a major threat to your surroundings. However, it is still a good idea to learn about local wildlife and plant life. Plus, now you are more familiar with your area, which in itself is a bonus.

Figure Out Your Needs

The next step for environmentally responsible fencing is to decide what your needs truly are. What you might think you need and what you truly need are likely to differ at least a little. That is why reflecting on your exact needs can be helpful. If you have no idea where to start, that’s also okay. At MFR Corp, we have specialists who would love to set up a meeting with you to help you figure everything out. 

We can show you fencing designs, styles, and coloring options to help you choose the best solutions for your needs. Plus, our specialists can help you decide on exact installation specifications based on the size, scale, and scope of your property. Finding and creating the right environmentally responsible fencing solution for your needs is another way to look out for the environment. 

Choose a Company That Cares

Of course, the number one thing you can do when shopping for environmentally responsible fencing is to choose a company that cares. Your fencing company is the one that can have the biggest impact, negative or positive, on the environment. That means your choice to invest in a company that takes measures to create environmentally safe products and manufacturing is important. At MFR Corp, we take environmentally responsible choices very seriously in every step of our production, crafting, manufacturing, and installation. 

LEED Environmentally Responsible Steel

MFR Corp is LEED-certified for steel and powder coating. Our steel is one of the easiest materials to recycle. It’s made of 85% recycled steel, most of which is harvested from old metal such as recycled automobiles. This also means less energy is required to manufacture the product in the first place. That makes it one of the most sustainable options for fencing solutions that will still create a durable and long-lasting fence. 

Additional benefits of using recycled steel include low waste, off-site manufacture, resource facility, safety, and high levels of reusability. These factors help meet goals for environmentally friendly LEED certifications. These inherent characteristics result in many social, environmental, and economic benefits to satisfy sustainability’s triple bottom line.

Powder Coatings For Environmentally Responsible Fencing

We also use environmentally responsible fencing solutions for our color powder coatings. Ours are eco-friendly, organic, high-quality finishes. They still provide the same durability and beautiful appearance over time, but with the added benefit of safety for the environment. Powder coating has been proven to be safer overall for the environment than wet paint alternatives since it lacks harmful solvents. As a result, little waste is created, there are low VOC emissions, and it can be reused as it is sprayed electrostatically.
