Are Boundary Fences Necessary? Australian Security Fencing

A boundary fence is one of the first things we think of when it comes to protecting our family and assets, and defining our property.   It’s a no-brainer.  The fence is like the foundation of your security system. It marks where your land starts and stops and it may even help lower some of the annual overhead costs associated with your property.


When we talk security, it’s logical to start at the fence and move inwards.  A good, secure fence around the boundary of your property is going to deter unwanted intruders and help protect you against theft and vandalism.  It provides a major obstacle for a burglar and is your first line of defense in the protection of your business or family.  Plus, it gives you that peace of mind we all crave.


In the workplace scenario, it is your responsibility to protect the public from dangerous situations that may occur on your site.  These may include such things as traffic, hazardous chemicals or machinery that could cause harm if not fatalities.  Erecting a boundary fence will prevent people from wandering onto your property and putting themselves and your staff into a situation that could turn into a disaster.

Let’s look at the benefits.

  • In the domestic setting, a secure boundary fence will prevent children straying off the property.  This is absolutely imperative, especially if you live on a busy street, near water or close to bushland where a child could get lost or badly hurt.  As a parent, protection of your family is paramount and a fence is only common sense.
  • A boundary fence may also add considerable value and street appeal to your property.  An attractive fence which provides protection is going to be a major drawcard to prospective buyers, should you want to sell your home or business at a later date.
  • Furthermore, a boundary fence defines the exact area of your property.  This is important because it removes any ‘grey areas’ over land ownership and clearly marks your estate.  It will also do away with any possibility of land being claimed by unauthorised personnel through Squatter’s Rights.  After all, your property is most likely one of your major assets, so you need to be definite about exactly what you own.
  • And, just to add the cherry on the top, did you know that installing a boundary fence may even help to lower your insurance costs?  Insurance companies generally recognise a secure fence as an extra measure you are taking to protect your assets against theft and vandalism, and offer lower rates in such cases.
