Safety Standards And Procedures When Installing A Commercial Fence

Your commercial property has to have a security fence.  Whether it’s a new venture or you’re simply renovating an existing property, the fence is really important.  After all, this is your means of telling the world where your property stops and starts, protecting yourself and your assets from vandals and burglars and controlling who comes and goes from the place, 24/7.

Unfortunately, commercial fence installation isn’t just as easy as 1-2-3.  There are a number of laws, safety standards, and procedures that surround fence erection that you’ll be obliged to adhere to.  And, considering this is an investment that you’ll have for a good many years to come, it’s worth getting it right from the get-go.


Australian Standards – what does that mean?

Standards Australia is a non-government institution that’s responsible for setting out and reviewing the ‘rules and regulations’ surrounding many building practices.  These standards aren’t just somebody’s good ideas either – they’re based on research.

Although the Australian Standards protocol mightn’t technically be law, the government will regularly refer to them when creating building legislation.  So, it pays to be familiar with the standards governing the fence you wish to install.

Why Standards?

The Australian Fencing Standards have been developed to keep Australians safe.  For example, high-security situations such as jails, detention centers, military bases and government organizations require fencing that’s strong, robust and able to withstand threats from both within and without.  Security fencing in public places needs to be sturdy and secure: where there are traffic, waterways and other dangers, you can’t afford to be taking chances!

The Australian Standards take the ‘guess work’ or ‘gut feeling’ out of the equation: the fence must comply with a rigid set of rules no matter who you are or where you come from, otherwise, it’s not up to scratch!
