Five Benefit of Security Fencing for Your Home


Perth Fencing Centre

If you’re on the fence, so to speak (ha ha), about shelling out for security fencing for your home or commercial property, wonder no more. There are a number of reasons why security fencing is ideal for your home, from the obvious security benefits to providing adequate privacy and vandal prevention, to adding an aesthetically pleasing barrier between your property and the outside world. With so many varieties on the market now, it can be difficult to make a choice on what kind of fence you should invest in, so we’ve done the hard work there for you too. Read on to find out more about why security fencing is the best thing for your home.


Usually, security fencing is installed on a property for two main reasons—to keep your home secure and to add a visually appealing element. We’ve gone a step further and come up with five brilliant benefits that will have you sure that a security fence is the best thing for your home.


This one is obvious, but it’s the most important one. Private homes definitely need security, especially if a home owner has a young family or valuable belongings to protect. Protecting your home against would-be thieves is probably the most important benefit of a security fence. A security fence is also an important part of a commercial property—with the premises being unoccupied for such long periods of time after staff go home for the night, commercial properties need outstanding security. Equipment, furniture, assets and even the building itself need to be protected at all times. Nothing can be more effective at providing security than effective fencing.

Security fences are a great way to ensure that your kids and pets stay safe and secure. The fence will provide them with a safe place to play, while protecting them from cars and other external dangers.


Vandalism is a growing problem for many people, both home owners and commercial property owners alike. Vandals can leave graffiti on a wall or damage the outside of a private property. Commercial properties or public buildings seem to be the most attractive to graffiti artists and vandals. The key aspect is positioning—if you choose the correct location to install your security fence it can make it almost impossible for a vandal to leave their mark. Used in this way, a security fence can be a great deterrent for vandals and graffiti artists.


While a security fence should ultimately provide a strong, reliable barrier between your property and the rest of the world, it can also improve the overall look and style of your home. This can result in an increase in value for your property, should you be looking to sell at any time in the future. To that end, security fencing comes in a wide variety of designs—from electric fences to fixed iron, aluminium or mesh (to name just a few). There is a range of colours as well, so you can choose a security fence that will best complement your home or that will update your existing style. The final decision on what kind of fence you need depends entirely on your security needs, your aesthetic preferences and your budget.


Have you ever opened a window only to notice a neighbour or someone outside watching you, your home or your family? It can be quite disconcerting and can make you think twice about opening your home up to light and fresh air on fine days. Having a solid barrier like a security fence prevents people from being able to peer into your home, from checking out your belongings, or from watching you and your family while you relax. It can mean that you’ll be able to open up your home without the rest of the world being able to peer in.


A security fence can also add a barrier against bad weather. When it comes to strong wind, rain or hail, a solid security fence can protect your home from severe damage. Of course, it all depends on the type of fence and where you position it, but either way you’re looking at an added layer of weather protection your home or commercial property otherwise wouldn’t have.

How to Clean and Maintain Aluminium Fencing


aluminium fencing Perth Fencing Centre

One of the biggest reasons aluminium fencing is the most popular fencing option that we sell here at Perth Fencing Centre is because they require virtually no upkeep.  Once your aluminium fence is installed many homeowners choose to set and forget, with the confidence their fence will stand strong and proud into the future without needing any extra care.

However, with that said there are some quick and steps you can take to keep a top notch appearance of your fence, and maintain the best possible condition for decades to come. We explain these fuss free fencing cleaning and maintenance tips in this post.


Part of what makes an aluminium fence virtually maintenance free is the powder coated finish which provides tough protection and no upkeep. Depending on the climate conditions and if there is low rainfall, or you live close to heavily industrial, coastal, or dusty areas, the surface can benefit from some periodic cleaning.

Here’s how to clean your aluminium fence:


1.    Spraying with a hose will remove most dirt, dust and residue. We recommend this for aluminium fence owners in coastal areas to remove abrasive salts which can accumulate over time.

2.     For more stubborn residue use a mild detergent wipe a cloth along the fence railings in warm soapy water. Do not use coarse sponges, brushes or solvents to clean the fence as this can scratch or dissolve the powder coated finish.


For some fence owners the brightness of the paintwork may become dull over time. While this is normal to a point from natural weathering effects, if this is a concern following the cleaning steps above can help to brighten fence panels.

Over time the natural aging process of the aluminium powder coat may involve some oxidisation, leaving a light chalky powder that forms on the surface – this can be more prevalent in areas of the fence which receive direct and consistent sunlight. To bring back the shine, rubbing car wax coated along fence railings will brighten the fence paintwork and provide some future protection against the elements.

Not all of these measures are 100 per cent necessary with aluminium fencing since unlike timber and wrought iron, aluminium fences are extremely maintenance and fuss free. However, at PFC we do understand how much pride people take in their fences in Perth, and if you’re lucky enough to have aluminium fencing, these measures will ensure you fence looks fantastic into the future!

9 Benefits to Installing an Aluminium Fence


Aluminium Fence - Perth Fencing Centre

Aluminium fence is a common option for many fence applications but what are its benefits? The following is a list reasons why aluminium fencing is a perfect choice for your next fencing project.

1. Affordability
With aluminium fencing, you get the same great look as iron, just for a much better price (especially when you take our price guarantee into account).

2. No Rust
Unlike iron, aluminium doesn’t rust. This means it will keep its beautiful look much longer despite any harsh weather conditions.

3. Low Maintenance
In addition to it not rusting, aluminium fencing doesn’t need to be repainted every few years and it can easily be replaced when needed.

4. Aesthetically Pleasing
Similar to iron, aluminium fences provide a classic look to any home or design aesthetic without blocking your view. Weatherables offers a variety of styles to help you find the best fit for your vision.

5. Security
As a good fence should, aluminium fencing adds another level of security to your home and yard (which is why an aluminium pool fence is a great choice). And, unlike chain-link fences, aluminium fences can’t be cut to gain entry. These aluminium fences also won’t easily fall apart over time like wood.

6. Versatility
Aluminium fencing can easily be adjusted to fit your landscape, meaning you can use it on flat or sloped surfaces without worrying about having ugly gaps or transitions.

7. Durability
Aluminium fences won’t rust, rot or be damaged by the sun; these durable fences are able to withstand the elements with ease (especially one from Weatherables, since we use the most durable materials in the industry).

8. Simple Assembly
These fences are easy to assemble and require no special training or tools. We also offer installation videos to help you through the process.

9. Lifetime Warranty
As with all of our products, our aluminium fencing is backed by a lifetime warranty.
