Steel grid fencing is gaining popularity with homeowners and businesses looking for sturdy and reliable anti-theft fencing solutions to protect their investments against thieves, vandals, and stray pets. Notably, steel grid fence systems are a lot more than just the standard chain link or wire fencing. It is a grid fence made from mild carbon steel that has a stable, solid frame. It comes with a framework of spaced bars parallel to or crossing each other to create a solid grating pattern.
What Is a Steel Grid?
A steel grid refers to a network of uniformly spaced horizontal and vertical lines or bars made of steel to give unmatched strength. Steel grid fences are used for various environmental conditions, including playground fences, parking fences, garden fences, street fences, or business district fences.
Are Metals Fences Good?
Metal fences are much sturdier and more hardwearing than other technologies such as wood or plastic. They are robust, highly durable, and can withstand a range of environmental elements and weather conditions for several years. Where it is properly installed and maintained, a metal fence will give you reliable protection for several years with minimal repairs.
Of all the typical metal fences, steel fencing offers the most significant benefits and a higher return on investment. Unlike wrought iron fencing, steel grid fencing cannot rot, meaning it will provide the same level of protection for centuries with little to no servicing needed.
Are Metal Fences better than wood?
Metal fences are a lot sturdier in extreme weather than wood. The following are some of the advantages of metal fences over wooden ones:
Better aesthetics: Today’s metal offering also provides more design flexibility owing to the variety of options available, including wrought iron, galvanized steel, and aluminum. You can get unmatched styles with metal accessories such as finials, knuckles, ball caps, and rings.
Robust strength: Unlike wood prone to moisture absorption and risks or warps and rotting, metal fencing such as steel grid fences provides unmatched strength and won’t rot. Some manufacturers also install hidden pin-hinge systems that enable rackability.
Lower maintenance needs: Wooden fence must be routinely maintained to last and keep its performance at optimal levels. On the other hand, metal fencing needs little to no maintenance. Unlike wooden fences, steel grid fencing doesn’t require staining, painting, sanding, priming, or refinishing after every few years.
Easy installation: Although wooden fences are simple to install, they shrink up to 1/4″ as it dries after installation, leaving unforeseen gaps in the fencing system. Wooden panel gates can also swell in winter with changing temperatures to tighten doors, making them difficult to open. However, with metal fences, most manufacturers have designed pre-assembled systems for ease of installation. These systems come with a rackable design that easily adjusts to suit uneven terrains.
