Installation of a metal gate to a residential property

This property had fallen into disrepair and the old gates need to be replaced as part of a large refurbishment project. Firstly, we removed the gates and then started the process of re-installation including locks, gate, hinge installation and paint for a durable finish. The gate was polyester powder coated to protect it from the elements for many years. We supplied a matching gate as per the original requirements i.e. colours and designs. Once the customer was happy with every aspect of the metal gate installation, we left safe in the knowledge that it will provide great physical security for the property and look good in the process.

Installed retractable security grilles in Birmingham

We were contacted by one of our customers in Birmingham for some security grilles at a new site they had recently acquired. Like most showrooms, the front elevation is a large expanse of glass split into numerous windows. Since there was a lot of glass involved they were concerned about the physical security. The customer made it clear that they wanted to protect the building without compromising access nor spoiling the look of the showroom. These all windows were of a larger size so we felt the best solution was to use electric, retractable security grilles. We installed these grilles to the property and feel we have met both the security aspect and the cosmetic requirements on the original brief.

Highly secured fencing installed in Birmingham

A leading company in Birmingham, needed to manage the physical security of a sensitive site. Although they were well protected from two sides by an adjacent building, they were vulnerable from the remaining two sides. One of their team members approached us due to our proven experience and expertise in the field.

The team worked carefully on the site for over a week and installed highly secured fencing on the vulnerable sides of the premises. The owner is happy with both the new security they have, but also finds it aesthetically pleasing too, ‘a tick in both boxes’.

Choosing the right fencing for a property is very important. It can give security, durability, and value of money whilst enhancing the appearance of your property. Deciding on the type of fencing to suit your needs, and can give the best level of protection and security can be difficult. Here are some tips to select the right fencing:

Security level
The security level of the fencing depends upon the area or property you want to secure. Be sure to select the right fence, maybe palisade fencing or security could be within your budget.

Palisade fencing provides medium security for commercial properties and may also prevent robberies & / or intruders.

b) Security fencing
Security fencing is recommended for a stronger deterrent. They can still look attractive, and are available in many different designs and colours.

Number of posts
The amount of posts required to fix fences can cause a direct effect on your budget. There may be a compromise so ask a qualified fitter for their expert advice.

Investment
Although you will be using money that you do not wish to spend, Security is paramount and neglecting this will result in more insurance claims / lost goods / feeling exposed, none of which are a better solution. In fact, these situations will almost certainly cost more money and the hassle too!
