Protecting Your Perimeter: Self-Storage Operators Discuss Fencing Materials and Other Specs

Storage Masters in O’Fallon Missouri

The perimeter fence is a critical part of your self-storage facility’s overall security, even if your business isn’t in a high-crime area. It shows tenants that the safety of their items is important, and signals to criminals that you take protection seriously. However, there are lots of important considerations to keep in mind, such as cost, curb appeal, installation and maintenance. How high should the fence be, and of what materials should it be made? What should it look like? How often does it require upkeep, and how long will it last? In this thread on Self-Storage Talk, members are discussing all the best options (and a few that haven’t worked great). Jump in to read their experiences and add your own two cents.
