\n

You already know it is critical that you prepare your fence for the winter months since it can cause a wide variety of damage to your fence. Severe weather can do enormous damage. Before, you write it off, you can still apply protective maintenance tips to your fence before the next batch of winter weather.

\n

The Big Freeze

\n

With temperatures at a record zero degree average, Richmond Metro, and Norfolk areas this week, your fence is continually alternating between cold wet and warmer wet moisture.  While our wood fences are installed with high-quality wood products, the organic structure of wood can still give pesky mold and mildew opportunity to flourish. 

\n

If you have not already this year, you can still help protect the life of your wood fence by applying a high-quality fence stain and sealant in between storms.

String Theory

Inspect your wood fence following significant storms. Check for damage and ensure the posts are still level by running a piece of string along the tops.

\n

Look for dips or rises in the string, and examine those posts to see if repairs are needed. Making structural repairs now will prevent the damage from worsening throughout the winter.

Snowed In

\n

Whether you live on the main street or a winding country road, snow plows will push dirt, snow ice and chemicals from the road all over your fence.

\n

When you gear up to go outside to clear the driveway, you should at least try and knock most if not all of the lingering snow from your fence. The longer moisture sits, the more damage it may do.

\n

Remove any branches that look prone to breaking off especially if they are large in size. Routinely clean your fence of leaves or other organic matter that has settled on the rails or become lodged between boards.

\n

Overhanging tree limbs can break under the weight of snow and ice, causing damage to your fence on their way to the ground. Monitor any trees within falling distance of your fence, and trim back any branches.

You already know it is critical that you prepare your fence for the winter months since it can cause a wide variety of damage to your fence. Severe weather can do enormous damage. Before, you write it off, you can still apply protective maintenance tips to your fence before the next batch of winter weather.
\n

The Big Freeze

\nWith temperatures at a record zero degree average, Richmond Metro, and Norfolk areas this week, your fence is continually alternating between cold wet and warmer wet moisture.  While our wood fences are installed with high-quality wood products, the organic structure of wood can still give pesky mold and mildew opportunity to flourish. \n

If you have not already this year, you can still help protect the life of your wood fence by applying a high-quality fence stain and sealant in between storms.

String Theory

Inspect your wood fence following significant storms. Check for damage and ensure the posts are still level by running a piece of string along the tops.

\n

Look for dips or rises in the string, and examine those posts to see if repairs are needed. Making structural repairs now will prevent the damage from worsening throughout the winter.

Snowed In

\n

Whether you live on the main street or a winding country road, snow plows will push dirt, snow ice and chemicals from the road all over your fence.

\n

When you gear up to go outside to clear the driveway, you should at least try and knock most if not all of the lingering snow from your fence. The longer moisture sits, the more damage it may do.

\n

Remove any branches that look prone to breaking off especially if they are large in size. Routinely clean your fence of leaves or other organic matter that has settled on the rails or become lodged between boards.

\n

Overhanging tree limbs can break under the weight of snow and ice, causing damage to your fence on their way to the ground. Monitor any trees within falling distance of your fence, and trim back any branches.

This time of year, visions of butterflies and backyard barbecues are overshadowed by ones of sugar plums and mistletoe. However, having your fence installed in the fall & winter months has some crucial advantages you should consider.

\n

Along with the latest toys and technologies, a new fence is a perfectly reasonable and highly impactful gift to add to the top of your Holiday Wish List. Indeed, September-March is the best time to build your new fence.

\n

Overlooked, but probably not a surprise that conscious consumers make big purchases for their homes in the off season. The fact is that most homeowners are not concentrating on outdoor projects until the spring thaw.

\n

Preparing your home and business for annual winter weather should be a priority. Before you head out into the wild winter wilderness, here's some insight into scheduling and installing a fence in early winter so that you can check those projects off your list, twice.

TIME & LABOR

It’s simple supply and demand. Homeowners who do their homework want the best service, and they want it at a reduced cost with little to no overtime. Being aware that in the off season; you are likely to pay less for your residential fence installation and get the most attention from your contractor.

\n

Professional fence contractors tend to fill up very quickly with new and repeat Residential Commercial & Industrial customers during the spring and summer.

\n

Peak season fence installations can have longer turnaround times.  Other anticipated spring projects could end up on the back burner waiting for installation from a busy contractor.

\n

Keep in mind that there are two winter situations where fence installation on is not recommended.

\n
    \n
  • \n

    Rainy days: Digging in the mud is never easy, and the holes tend to fill with water. Even if you do manage to get the fence up, chances are it will not be straight.

    \n
  • \n
  • \n

    Lots of snow: Snow causes issues with the string line as well as the barrier edges.

A huge perk of this strategy is that when you start your fence installation in the off-season months, you will get to work in close collaboration with your Professional Fence Specialist. If you have specialty materials or regulated job specifications, a fence company can help you line that up.

\n

Off Season is perfect timing to replace a dilapidated or damaged fence. Maybe you are ready to replace an old fence on your property that is not up to code.

\n
\n

Alternatively, if you are tired of staining and maintaining an old wood fence, you may want to consider a low maintenance option like vinyl or Ornamental Aluminum.

\n

These two options need very little attention after installation. Replacing your wood fence with these options will allow you to see firsthand how these weather resistant materials stand up to the colder months.

\n

It is a good idea to consider pool installation in winter months as those prices are also generally lower. Having the pool and fence ready to go by the time the flowers start blooming will be worth its weight in winter weather. Be proactive and schedule your pool and fence jobs in unison.

\n

If you are in contact with your pool company for a winter installation, a Professional Fence Specialist should be able to work with your preferred contractor. Both construction companies should work in sync to achieve your individual project goals.

\n

A Professional Fence Company should even be able to provide temporary fencing for the duration of the construction process. They can help streamline your project for your future Residential Fence Installation.

\n

RECALL THE MOST FAMOUS REASON OF ALL

\n

There’s nothing quite like that first enchanting blanket of snow, timeless holiday lighting and cool holiday decor Christmas draped across your fence. Your neighbors and family will be in awe at the sight of your very own winter wonderland. Moreover, while your neighbors are planning and constructing and spending, you’ll be the one chilling.

Preparing your home and business for annual winter weather should be a priority. Before you head out into the wild winter wilderness, here's some insight into scheduling and installing a fence in early winter so that you can check those projects off your list, twice.

TIME & LABOR

It’s simple supply and demand. Homeowners who do their homework want the best service, and they want it at a reduced cost with little to no overtime. Being aware that in the off season; you are likely to pay less for your residential fence installation and get the most attention from your contractor.

\n

Professional fence contractors tend to fill up very quickly with new and repeat Residential Commercial & Industrial customers during the spring and summer.

\n

Peak season fence installations can have longer turnaround times.  Other anticipated spring projects could end up on the back burner waiting for installation from a busy contractor.

\n

Keep in mind that there are two winter situations where fence installation on is not recommended.

\n
    \n
  • \n

    Rainy days: Digging in the mud is never easy, and the holes tend to fill with water. Even if you do manage to get the fence up, chances are it will not be straight.

    \n
  • \n
  • \n

    Lots of snow: Snow causes issues with the string line as well as the barrier edges.

A huge perk of this strategy is that when you start your fence installation in the off-season months, you will get to work in close collaboration with your Professional Fence Specialist. If you have specialty materials or regulated job specifications, a fence company can help you line that up.

\n

Off Season is perfect timing to replace a dilapidated or damaged fence. Maybe you are ready to replace an old fence on your property that is not up to code.

\n
\n

Alternatively, if you are tired of staining and maintaining an old wood fence, you may want to consider a low maintenance option like vinyl or Ornamental Aluminum.

\n

These two options need very little attention after installation. Replacing your wood fence with these options will allow you to see firsthand how these weather resistant materials stand up to the colder months.

\n

It is a good idea to consider pool installation in winter months as those prices are also generally lower. Having the pool and fence ready to go by the time the flowers start blooming will be worth its weight in winter weather. Be proactive and schedule your pool and fence jobs in unison.

\n

If you are in contact with your pool company for a winter installation, a Professional Fence Specialist should be able to work with your preferred contractor. Both construction companies should work in sync to achieve your individual project goals.

\n

A Professional Fence Company should even be able to provide temporary fencing for the duration of the construction process. They can help streamline your project for your future Residential Fence Installation.

There’s nothing quite like that first enchanting blanket of snow, timeless holiday lighting and cool holiday decor Christmas draped across your fence.

Municipalities typically dictate the need for a dumpster enclosure. Extensive coverage and property line limitations must also be considered and approved per local code requirements.

Enclosure materials will vary from wood privacy style dumpsters, to vinyl/PVC and sometimes composite materials.

What is Composite Fence Material?

\n

Dumpster enclosure gates will demand steel gate posts sized to appropriately support the gate leaf needed for the opening.  

\n

Additionally, the gate frame should also be steel with pickets or panels attached.

\n

This provides the gate with much greater structural, ensures much longer life compared to less sturdy construction applications.

Wood Dumpster Enclosures

The location and use pattern of the dumpster could very well dictate what would be the better value and best fit for the long term.

\n

Enclosures housed on a concrete dumpster pads that require gates and gate posts should be core drilled for the installation of the gate posts. This helps to eliminate sagging.

\n

Adequate planning will preserve the life of the enclosure, decrease damage claims and increase customer satisfaction for quality construction.

\n

 

\n
\n

Make sure that the dumpster enclosure can return to to its original position after each collection. This is paramount. 

\n

Since the gates will be used thousands of times over many years, the installation must accommodate the dumpster size, the contents and be easily accessible for local refuse collection service.

Consumers can be hesitant when it comes to making the decision to enclose their home or private property. Part of that could be due to the fact that no one ever thinks about installing a fence until well--you need to install a fence.

\n

But all fence enclosure projects don't have to reek havoc on your wallet. Pricing for a residential fence projects is less than Commercial and Industrial fence solutions and doesn't have to be an afterthought. It goes without saying that the cost of your fence enclosure will depend on the factors outlined below.  Keeping your home safe should be thought of as an active investment.

\n

An affordable fence installation adds tremendous value, security and aesthetic cohesion to a property. Often, it can be the difference between a house and a home.

Fence Materials

The four main types of residential fence materials are chain link, wood, aluminum and vinyl. Chain link material is the least expensive of these options.

\n

Wood, aluminum and vinyl follow in order from least to most expensive. The higher the cost of the material reflects the quality of the material and the lower maintenance requirements.

\n

Market cost at time of purchase can also affect the cost of your fence material. The quality and grade of the fence material also plays a role in the cost of the fence.

\n
\n

Fence Size

Of course the cost to fence a half acre yard would not be the same as a 2 acre one. The most important factor in this category is the perimeter of the area you wish to fence in. The average backyard in a residential neighborhood is about 150 linear feet.

\n

To figure out the length of the fence line, one would need to measure the line where the new fence to is be installed or along the existing fence.  A plot survey would be of great assistance in determining how much area you, by law, have to work with.

\n

Fence Cost

\n

The market price of wood will increase or decrease depending on the season.  You can ask your installer which season is best to get a good price on wood products. The final cost of your fence project will be determined by the addition of labor costs. The style of fence that you choose to install will play a role in this amount as some styles are more or less labor intensive to install correctly. 

\n
\n

Fence Installation Process

\n

Vinyl and aluminum fence cost is variable by the location of the manufacturer and the strength of the material. The manufacturer’s location can dramatically change the cost of the material as a result of shipping costs. The process of the fence installation will determine the time of labor needed to complete the job.

Steel slide gates are in use at residential, commercial, industrial and government locations.

\n

There are several different types of steel slide gates from tracked (both overhead and in pavement), roll gates (both hard rubber and balloon tires) and cantilever slides. The type of slide gate used depends on the available space for the gate, volume of use, security requirements, type of surface at the gate opening and the project budget.

\n
Steel slide gates provide strong, secure reliable and cost effective solutions to of a location whether in manual or automatic mode. 
\n
\n

Steel is more forgiving to the incidental bumps from vehicle traffic than other materials resulting in fewer and less costly gate repairs. Slide gates enable a large gate to be easily opened or closed even in the manual mode.                

\n

Steel gates do not experience the sagging problems incurred by swing gates and do not require larger post sizes as the gate leaf increases. It is quite common to have single slide gates covering an opening of 30 feet and still use the same post size as much smaller openings. Existing manual slide gates can easily retrofitted to an automatic application at less cost than a single or double swing when a single slide gate is the object of the retrofit.

The drawbacks to steel slide gates. The gates are heavy and weight is the enemy of rollers, tracks, wheels and operators. The higher the volume of traffic through the access road the greater the strain on the gate system. Much of this can be eliminated with proper and routine maintenance of the slide gate and rollers. Polyurethane gate rollers also save wear and tear on the gates and ease the operation of the gate considerably.

\n

The most popular slide gate in today’s market is the cantilever slide gate. This popularity will remain the case until gates that provide the strength of steel, the lighter weight of aluminum and the resulting freedom of maintenance that it provides is available at a reasonable cost.

Requirements and needs vary in privacy, security, maintenance level, configurations, cost, and aesthetic style. Here are some helpful tips that play a big role in arriving at a well-informed decision. 

\n\n

Privacy

\n

When it comes to privacy, vinyl fencing pulls ahead. With heights reaching up to 6’ or 8’ and its solid state, vinyl is perfect for backyards. Pool enclosures, basic perimeter fencing, and dumpster enclosures are also common vinyl applications.

\n

An aluminum fence offers a classic and minimal look but can only achieve comparable privacy function with the addition of fill-in panels. And often, these panels take away from the traditional ornamental look of the enclosure.

\n
\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n
\n

Gate configuration

\n

For many buyers, larger gates are a must have. With ornamental or decorative aluminum fencing, these in specifications and designs can be met. Aluminum gate sizes vary from 3’ wide walk gates to 30’ wide slide gates. Features such as self-closing hinges, pool latches, magnetic locks, and gate operators and access controls for larger fences all work wonderfully with an aluminum fenceAluminum gates also work to meet standardized pool codes.

\n
\n

The majority of Vinyl gates are manufactured in sizes from 3’ wide single panel swing gates to 12’ or 16’ wide double panel swing gates. Large gates are usually constructed with pipe posts and frames, to which the vinyl fence panels are then attached. PVC products are an atypical material application for automated systems.

\n
\n\n\n\n\n\n\n
\n

Maintenance 
Requiring little to no maintenance vinyl has a slight edge over aluminum. Though ornamental fence is also low maintenance, a simple occasional wash with soap and water is all it takes to keep this vinyl as beautiful as the day it was installed.

\n

Security

\n

Ornamental Aluminum take the lead when it comes to security fencing. Due to its limitations, a vinyl fence cannot meet the material conditions for large gate uses. It simply cannot be made as security conscious as it aluminum counterpart.

\n

When looking to improve the safety of an office building, and apartment complexes, commercial and industrial grade aluminum fence is always the best choice.

\n

Heavy duty and decorative gates come with automated electric operators and access controls for additional security measures and ease of operation. Residential grade aluminum fences are somewhat less secure, but still an ideal solution for keeping children and pets in or out of the back yard.

\n

Cost

\n

The cost of installation for either material is about the same, about size. Naturally, the price goes up as the scale of the fence increases. Large ornamental aluminum gates will cost more than smaller sized vinyl ones.

Color selection

\n

Ornamental Aluminum Fences are available in a variety of styles, sizes, and grades for almost any fence requirement. The standard powder coating colors - green, brown, white, and black - give years of attractive protection. Ornamental color variations are increased, but specific suppliers do produce custom colors. Although most vinyl fences are white, many manufacturers now offer several color selections as well as wood grain and textured surfaces.

Once taken into consideration, these differences will help you make an informed decision whether vinyl or aluminum application for your fence enclosure.

Requiring little to no maintenance vinyl has a slight edge over aluminum. Though ornamental fence is also low maintenance, a simple occasional wash with soap and water is all it takes to keep this vinyl as beautiful as the day it was installed.

Security

\n

Ornamental Aluminum take the lead when it comes to security fencing. Due to its limitations, a vinyl fence cannot meet the material conditions for large gate uses. It simply cannot be made as security conscious as it aluminum counterpart.

\n

When looking to improve the safety of an office building, and apartment complexes, commercial and industrial grade aluminum fence is always the best choice.

\n

Heavy duty and decorative gates come with automated electric operators and access controls for additional security measures and ease of operation. Residential grade aluminum fences are somewhat less secure, but still an ideal solution for keeping children and pets in or out of the back yard.

\n

Cost

\n

The cost of installation for either material is about the same, about size. Naturally, the price goes up as the scale of the fence increases. Large ornamental aluminum gates will cost more than smaller sized vinyl ones.

Color selection

\n

Ornamental Aluminum Fences are available in a variety of styles, sizes, and grades for almost any fence requirement. The standard powder coating colors - green, brown, white, and black - give years of attractive protection. Ornamental color variations are increased, but specific suppliers do produce custom colors. Although most vinyl fences are white, many manufacturers now offer several color selections as well as wood grain and textured surfaces.

Once taken into consideration, these differences will help you make an informed decision whether vinyl or aluminum application for your fence enclosure.

Deciding between a vinyl (PVC) and an ornamental aluminum fence enclosure can be difficult.  Like people, every fence solution is unique. Requirements and needs vary in privacy, security, maintenance level, configurations, cost, and aesthetic style. Here are some helpful tips that play a big role in arriving at a well-informed decision. 

\n\n

Privacy

\n

When it comes to privacy, vinyl fencing pulls ahead. With heights reaching up to 6’ or 8’ and its solid state, vinyl is perfect for backyards. Pool enclosures, basic perimeter fencing, and dumpster enclosures are also common vinyl applications.

\n

An aluminum fence offers a classic and minimal look but can only achieve comparable privacy function with the addition of fill-in panels. And often, these panels take away from the traditional ornamental look of the enclosure.

Gate configuration

\n

For many buyers, larger gates are a must have. With ornamental or decorative aluminum fencing, these in specifications and designs can be met. Aluminum gate sizes vary from 3’ wide walk gates to 30’ wide slide gates. Features such as self-closing hinges, pool latches, magnetic locks, and gate operators and access controls for larger fences all work wonderfully with an aluminum fenceAluminum gates also work to meet standardized pool codes.

\n
\n

The majority of Vinyl gates are manufactured in sizes from 3’ wide single panel swing gates to 12’ or 16’ wide double panel swing gates. Large gates are usually constructed with pipe posts and frames, to which the vinyl fence panels are then attached. PVC products are an atypical material application for automated systems.

Active Vehicle Barriers

\n

These create a secure environment by blocking a path or route but open or move to allow passage when necessary. Barriers are considered active when they can be moved to allow access, but keeps unwelcome visitors outside.

\n

Vehicle access control points or entry control points where credentials and/or vehicle contents are checked might require installation of an active vehicle barrier (AVB) at the end of the access corridor.

\n

Drop arm barriers  use a beam extending across the road. Usually the beam, or arm, swings vertically to allow the vehicle to pass, but horizontal swinging versions and telescoping beams are also available.  

\n

Retractable Bollards are another common type of AVB. They are frequently used where they are normally in an up position and only need to be operated infrequently.

\n
\n
\n
\n
\n 
\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n
Passive Traffic Barriers \n

Temporary Fences and Barricades keep the job site or outdoor event enclosed by softly directing foot and vehicle traffic to a designated zone that can be broken down and set up quickly at any location at any point as needed. Typically construction sites use tall movable chain link fences to protect the public from and treacherous sections of a project. 

\n

Swing gates designs require a massive steel counterweight (many thousands of pounds) to balance the beam, and a large capacity hydraulic system to move the beam.

\n

Upswing barrier gates  can be used for a variety of commercial applications, including business parking lots, apartments, and traffic control.

\n

Wedge barriers get their name because of their wedge shape when viewed from the side. They are also sometimes called plate barriers because the most common type uses a steel plate angled toward the approaching vehicle. This can be achieved by placing Jersey wall barriers in a way that creates a maze for the vehicle to maneuver.

\n

This effectively forces the vehicle to slow down while permitting clearance.

\n
\n

Passive barriers are permanent obstacles that protect a building or property from vehicle interference.

\n

Passive barriers have no moving parts; their effectiveness relies on their ability to absorb energy and transmit it to their foundations. 

\n

Concrete walls if properly designed and constructed, can certainly perform well as a barrier. Key elements in the effectiveness of such walls are their height, thickness, reinforcement, and foundation depth.

\n

Terrain can be used as an effective vehicle barrier. It is difficult for certain types of vehicles to pass or traverse ditches that have sufficient width, depth and overly steep side slopes. Berms also can be effective if properly configured.

\n
\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n
\n

Bollards are short, vertical posts used to protect potentially vulnerable structures or objects from damage by moving vehicles.

\n

Designed for versatility, these posts range in size from 24” to 42”in height, and come in variable diameters to meet a location’s specific security requirements.

\n

Bollards can be used to maintain a more natural look, while providing crash-rated security. 

\n
 
\n

Security provided by barriers is available with many different degrees of safety options.Whether the solution is permanent or somewhat temporary, depends on a facility's unique needs as well as various external factors.  Safety access, value of the secured property, and the risk of intrusion associated within the enclosed area are all essential questions to arriving at your barrier solution.

\n

Barrier systems are built to specific standards set forth by the Department of State (DOS) and meet three levels of security K4, K8, and K12.  

\n

Depending on the facility, the level of protection can be increased or decreased by the use of these barrier enclosures.

Active Force Protection Barriers are used to create ATFP entry systems and gates.

\n

The appropriate type of barrier depends on a number of factors. In this article we consult some of the most common barrier security applications.Security provided by barriers is available with many different degrees of safety options.Whether the solution is permanent or somewhat temporary, depends on a facility's unique needs as well as various external factors.

Active Vehicle Barriers

\n

These create a secure environment by blocking a path or route but open or move to allow passage when necessary. Barriers are considered active when they can be moved to allow access, but keeps unwelcome visitors outside.

\n

Vehicle access control points or entry control points where credentials and/or vehicle contents are checked might require installation of an active vehicle barrier (AVB) at the end of the access corridor.

\n

Drop arm barriers  use a beam extending across the road. Usually the beam, or arm, swings vertically to allow the vehicle to pass, but horizontal swinging versions and telescoping beams are also available.  

\n

Retractable Bollards are another common type of AVB. They are frequently used where they are normally in an up position and only need to be operated infrequently.

Passive Traffic Barriers \n

Temporary Fences and Barricades keep the job site or outdoor event enclosed by softly directing foot and vehicle traffic to a designated zone that can be broken down and set up quickly at any location at any point as needed. Typically construction sites use tall movable chain link fences to protect the public from and treacherous sections of a project. 

\n

Swing gates designs require a massive steel counterweight (many thousands of pounds) to balance the beam, and a large capacity hydraulic system to move the beam.

\n

Upswing barrier gates  can be used for a variety of commercial applications, including business parking lots, apartments, and traffic control.

\n

Wedge barriers get their name because of their wedge shape when viewed from the side. They are also sometimes called plate barriers because the most common type uses a steel plate angled toward the approaching vehicle. This can be achieved by placing Jersey wall barriers in a way that creates a maze for the vehicle to maneuver.

\n

This effectively forces the vehicle to slow down while permitting clearance.

\n
\n

Passive barriers are permanent obstacles that protect a building or property from vehicle interference.

\n

Passive barriers have no moving parts; their effectiveness relies on their ability to absorb energy and transmit it to their foundations. 

\n

Concrete walls if properly designed and constructed, can certainly perform well as a barrier. Key elements in the effectiveness of such walls are their height, thickness, reinforcement, and foundation depth.

\n

Terrain can be used as an effective vehicle barrier. It is difficult for certain types of vehicles to pass or traverse ditches that have sufficient width, depth and overly steep side slopes. Berms also can be effective if properly configured.

\n
\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n
\n

Bollards are short, vertical posts used to protect potentially vulnerable structures or objects from damage by moving vehicles.

\n

Designed for versatility, these posts range in size from 24” to 42”in height, and come in variable diameters to meet a location’s specific security requirements.

\n

Bollards can be used to maintain a more natural look, while providing crash-rated security.

Wedge barriers get their name because of their wedge shape when viewed from the side. They are also sometimes called plate barriers because the most common type uses a steel plate angled toward the approaching vehicle. This can be achieved by placing Jersey wall barriers in a way that creates a maze for the vehicle to maneuver.

\n

This effectively forces the vehicle to slow down while permitting clearance.

\n

Passive barriers are permanent obstacles that protect a building or property from vehicle interference.

\n

Passive barriers have no moving parts; their effectiveness relies on their ability to absorb energy and transmit it to their foundations. 

\n

Concrete walls if properly designed and constructed, can certainly perform well as a barrier. Key elements in the effectiveness of such walls are their height, thickness, reinforcement, and foundation depth.

\n

Terrain can be used as an effective vehicle barrier. It is difficult for certain types of vehicles to pass or traverse ditches that have sufficient width, depth and overly steep side slopes. Berms also can be effective if properly configured.

\n

Bollards are short, vertical posts used to protect potentially vulnerable structures or objects from damage by moving vehicles.

\n

Designed for versatility, these posts range in size from 24” to 42”in height, and come in variable diameters to meet a location’s specific security requirements.

\n

Bollards can be used to maintain a more natural look, while providing crash-rated security.

\n

Security provided by barriers is available with many different degrees of safety options.Whether the solution is permanent or somewhat temporary, depends on a facility's unique needs as well as various external factors.  Safety access, value of the secured property, and the risk of intrusion associated within the enclosed area are all essential questions to arriving at your barrier solution.

\n

Barrier systems are built to specific standards set forth by the Department of State (DOS) and meet three levels of security K4, K8, and K12.  

\n

Depending on the facility, the level of protection can be increased or decreased by the use of these barrier enclosures.

Active Vehicle Barriers

\n

These create a secure environment by blocking a path or route but open or move to allow passage when necessary. Barriers are considered active when they can be moved to allow access, but keeps unwelcome visitors outside.

\n

Vehicle access control points or entry control points where credentials and/or vehicle contents are checked might require installation of an active vehicle barrier (AVB) at the end of the access corridor.

\n

Drop arm barriers  use a beam extending across the road. Usually the beam, or arm, swings vertically to allow the vehicle to pass, but horizontal swinging versions and telescoping beams are also available.  

\n

Retractable Bollards are another common type of AVB. They are frequently used where they are normally in an up position and only need to be operated infrequently.

Passive Traffic Barriers \n

Temporary Fences and Barricades keep the job site or outdoor event enclosed by softly directing foot and vehicle traffic to a designated zone that can be broken down and set up quickly at any location at any point as needed. Typically construction sites use tall movable chain link fences to protect the public from and treacherous sections of a project. 

\n

Swing gates designs require a massive steel counterweight (many thousands of pounds) to balance the beam, and a large capacity hydraulic system to move the beam.

Bollards are short, vertical posts used to protect potentially vulnerable structures or objects from damage by moving vehicles.

\n

Designed for versatility, these posts range in size from 24” to 42”in height, and come in variable diameters to meet a location’s specific security requirements.

\n

Bollards can be used to maintain a more natural look, while providing crash-rated security.

\n

Security provided by barriers is available with many different degrees of safety options.Whether the solution is permanent or somewhat temporary, depends on a facility's unique needs as well as various external factors.  Safety access, value of the secured property, and the risk of intrusion associated within the enclosed area are all essential questions to arriving at your barrier solution.

\n

Barrier systems are built to specific standards set forth by the Department of State (DOS) and meet three levels of security K4, K8, and K12.  

\n

Depending on the facility, the level of protection can be increased or decreased by the use of these barrier enclosures.

Active Vehicle Barriers

\n

These create a secure environment by blocking a path or route but open or move to allow passage when necessary. Barriers are considered active when they can be moved to allow access, but keeps unwelcome visitors outside.

\n

Vehicle access control points or entry control points where credentials and/or vehicle contents are checked might require installation of an active vehicle barrier (AVB) at the end of the access corridor.

\n

Drop arm barriers  use a beam extending across the road. Usually the beam, or arm, swings vertically to allow the vehicle to pass, but horizontal swinging versions and telescoping beams are also available.  

\n

Retractable Bollards are another common type of AVB. They are frequently used where they are normally in an up position and only need to be operated infrequently.

\n

Passive Traffic Barriers \n

Temporary Fences and Barricades keep the job site or outdoor event enclosed by softly directing foot and vehicle traffic to a designated zone that can be broken down and set up quickly at any location at any point as needed. Typically construction sites use tall movable chain link fences to protect the public from and treacherous sections of a project. 

\n

Swing gates designs require a massive steel counterweight (many thousands of pounds) to balance the beam, and a large capacity hydraulic system to move the beam.

\n

Upswing barrier gates  can be used for a variety of commercial applications, including business parking lots, apartments, and traffic control.

\n

Wedge barriers get their name because of their wedge shape when viewed from the side. They are also sometimes called plate barriers because the most common type uses a steel plate angled toward the approaching vehicle. This can be achieved by placing Jersey wall barriers in a way that creates a maze for the vehicle to maneuver.

\n

This effectively forces the vehicle to slow down while permitting clearance.

\n
\n

Passive barriers are permanent obstacles that protect a building or property from vehicle interference.

\n

Passive barriers have no moving parts; their effectiveness relies on their ability to absorb energy and transmit it to their foundations. 

\n

Concrete walls if properly designed and constructed, can certainly perform well as a barrier. Key elements in the effectiveness of such walls are their height, thickness, reinforcement, and foundation depth.

\n

Terrain can be used as an effective vehicle barrier. It is difficult for certain types of vehicles to pass or traverse ditches that have sufficient width, depth and overly steep side slopes. Berms also can be effective if properly configured.

 In ground pools have become more affordable in the past decade and that makes the subject of operational gate latches a major benefit to homeowners and pool fence installers. It can be a confusing topic for those who are not familiar with pool code requirements

\n

Pool safety latches are designed to make it difficult, if not impossible, for small children to open the gate. These latches typically open by pulling up on a knob that releases the latch. This is an unusual opening action and kids are not inclined to understand how to unlock the gate. The latches are installed at the top of the gate to ensure that the latch is ‘out of reach’. Virginia Pool Code requires that the latch mechanism be at 54” above ground or higher. These latches also have a key lock on them as well.

\n

Pool gates must also be equipped with automatically self-closing hinges that open away not towards the pool area. Once the gate swings back to the closed position the latch will automatically engage: it is then necessary for the pool-owner to actually turn the lock on the gate for additional security. Every city, county, or municipality has some form of pool code or regulations regarding the gate latches for pool fences.

\n

Choosing an aluminum or vinyl pool gate latch that is compliant with those particular regulatory codes, is very important for safety and liability .

Peace of Mind is Priceless

\n


Even in the very rare situation that your city, county or municipality does not have a code regulating the use of pool safety latches it is always better to be safe rather than sorry. Your pool or fence professional will be familiar with your local pool fence code

\n

By using an approved pool safety latch you will be providing security for your family as well as any wandering neighborhood children and pets who may exhibit interest in your inviting new pool. 

\n

Below are a few options for your pool fence safety latch. Before you select and buy your latch, it is best to speak with your hired fence project manager in order to make sure that the pool fence you are installing or updating will work with this type of pool attachment.

 In ground pools have become more affordable in the past decade and that makes the subject of operational gate latches a major benefit to homeowners and pool fence installers. It can be a confusing topic for those who are not familiar with pool code requirements

\n

Pool safety latches are designed to make it difficult, if not impossible, for small children to open the gate. These latches typically open by pulling up on a knob that releases the latch. This is an unusual opening action and kids are not inclined to understand how to unlock the gate. The latches are installed at the top of the gate to ensure that the latch is ‘out of reach’. Virginia Pool Code requires that the latch mechanism be at 54” above ground or higher. These latches also have a key lock on them as well.

\n

Pool gates must also be equipped with automatically self-closing hinges that open away not towards the pool area. Once the gate swings back to the closed position the latch will automatically engage: it is then necessary for the pool-owner to actually turn the lock on the gate for additional security. Every city, county, or municipality has some form of pool code or regulations regarding the gate latches for pool fences.

\n

Choosing an aluminum or vinyl pool gate latch that is compliant with those particular regulatory codes, is very important for safety and liability .

Peace of Mind is Priceless

\n


Even in the very rare situation that your city, county or municipality does not have a code regulating the use of pool safety latches it is always better to be safe rather than sorry. Your pool or fence professional will be familiar with your local pool fence code

\n

By using an approved pool safety latch you will be providing security for your family as well as any wandering neighborhood children and pets who may exhibit interest in your inviting new pool. 

\n

Below are a few options for your pool fence safety latch. Before you select and buy your latch, it is best to speak with your hired fence project manager in order to make sure that the pool fence you are installing or updating will work with this type of pool attachment.

 In ground pools have become more affordable in the past decade and that makes the subject of operational gate latches a major benefit to homeowners and pool fence installers. It can be a confusing topic for those who are not familiar with pool code requirements

\n

Pool safety latches are designed to make it difficult, if not impossible, for small children to open the gate. These latches typically open by pulling up on a knob that releases the latch. This is an unusual opening action and kids are not inclined to understand how to unlock the gate. The latches are installed at the top of the gate to ensure that the latch is ‘out of reach’. Virginia Pool Code requires that the latch mechanism be at 54” above ground or higher. These latches also have a key lock on them as well.

\n

Pool gates must also be equipped with automatically self-closing hinges that open away not towards the pool area. Once the gate swings back to the closed position the latch will automatically engage: it is then necessary for the pool-owner to actually turn the lock on the gate for additional security. Every city, county, or municipality has some form of pool code or regulations regarding the gate latches for pool fences.

\n

Choosing an aluminum or vinyl pool gate latch that is compliant with those particular regulatory codes, is very important for safety and liability .

Peace of Mind is Priceless

\n


Even in the very rare situation that your city, county or municipality does not have a code regulating the use of pool safety latches it is always better to be safe rather than sorry. Your pool or fence professional will be familiar with your local pool fence code

\n

By using an approved pool safety latch you will be providing security for your family as well as any wandering neighborhood children and pets who may exhibit interest in your inviting new pool. 

\n

Below are a few options for your pool fence safety latch. Before you select and buy your latch, it is best to speak with your hired fence project manager in order to make sure that the pool fence you are installing or updating will work with this type of pool attachment.

Depending on the circumstances, the cost incurred by hiring an architect or additional engineer is eliminated alongside the middle man. 

\n

A professional commercial or industrial fence contractor that has proven experience with design build, will be able to both design and price your enclosure solution based on specifications.

\n

As a side note, smaller more intimate level, almost all residential customers can be considered the \"owner\" and the subcontractor designs and builds the fence based their needs.

Buyers & Builders

\n

For example, VDOT and military specifications are exceptionally strict.
The fence company involved should have a working knowledge of how the requirements affect the job. Design–build places the responsibility for design errors and omissions on the design–builder, relieving the owner of legal and managerial responsibilities. The burden for these costs and associated risks are transferred to the design–build team.

\n

ASTM specifications play a very large part these types of projects because very rarely is the specification drawn out on the plans. They often require a vast array of specifications that its typically in the best interest of the property construction team to hire a professional.

\n
\n

This simplifies the work of the buyer and streamlines the construction process.

\n

Often, commercial construction managers and the property owner, will collaborate in order to organize the needs of the customer by fielding the information to selected design/build subcontractors.

\n

This is especially true when the fence job must involve several trades to work together. Without the right experience and resources, a new fence company might miss specifications and codes needed for that particular job.

\n

Depending on whether the project is commercial, military, or federal, the requirements can vary greatly and affect cost structure.

Above is Pitt Field at University of Richmond. This projects required several additional designs including windscreen, an upgrade to industrial aluminum fencing and galvanized chain link fence that meets athletic field specs.

\n
\n

Accounting for Accountability

\n

By relieving the buyer or property owner of the building responsibility, an experienced design build team allows greater productivity with fewer costs. It gives the builder teams the ability to install their work using their knowledge and resources. As a result, the quality of work of the project will improve.

\n

While the buyer is still responsible for communicating his or her needs and desires with the project, the builder must be highly competent to understand appropriate requirements and restrictions. By creating the direct connection between the builder and the subcontractors, the buyer is able to focus their efforts on the overall outcome.

\n

Design–build can save time and money for the owner, while allowing a chance to achieve innovation on the project. Design–build allows owners to avoid being placed directly between the architect/engineer and the contractor which under design–bid–build process, the owner takes on more legal risks in that position. The design build process has been used for centuries to increase productivity and reduce cost, but it is only recently making a significant comeback in the construction industry. Design build is becoming more common in the United States and abroad, giving fence companies a larger role in this process.

ASTM specifications play a very large part these types of projects because very rarely is the specification drawn out on the plans. They often require a vast array of specifications that its typically in the best interest of the property construction team to hire a professional.

\n
\n

This simplifies the work of the buyer and streamlines the construction process.

\n

Often, commercial construction managers and the property owner, will collaborate in order to organize the needs of the customer by fielding the information to selected design/build subcontractors.

\n

This is especially true when the fence job must involve several trades to work together. Without the right experience and resources, a new fence company might miss specifications and codes needed for that particular job.

\n

Depending on whether the project is commercial, military, or federal, the requirements can vary greatly and affect cost structure.

Accounting for Accountability

\n

By relieving the buyer or property owner of the building responsibility, an experienced design build team allows greater productivity with fewer costs. It gives the builder teams the ability to install their work using their knowledge and resources. As a result, the quality of work of the project will improve.

\n

While the buyer is still responsible for communicating his or her needs and desires with the project, the builder must be highly competent to understand appropriate requirements and restrictions. By creating the direct connection between the builder and the subcontractors, the buyer is able to focus their efforts on the overall outcome.

\n

Design–build can save time and money for the owner, while allowing a chance to achieve innovation on the project. Design–build allows owners to avoid being placed directly between the architect/engineer and the contractor which under design–bid–build process, the owner takes on more legal risks in that position. The design build process has been used for centuries to increase productivity and reduce cost, but it is only recently making a significant comeback in the construction industry. Design build is becoming more common in the United States and abroad, giving fence companies a larger role in this process.

Chain link fence is one of the most popular types of fence requested and installed today.

\n\n

This popularity stems in part from chain link’s relatively inexpensive price and ability to mold to many safety concerns. This particular fence material is very flexible and ease of installation is a definite asset to its’ versatility. On a project with different ground elevations, a chain link fence may be the ideal solution.

\n

Chain link is also ideal for projects that will cross stretches of terrain where beautification is not the primary intention.

\n

Rear perimeter of military bases or any large government installations usually include at least one chain link fence application. It typically takes a back seat to high security steel and automatic gate applications but offers inconspicuous support to the other application as well as the denoting the property line.

\n
\n

Chain link fences come in a range of heights that make it suitable for a variety of applications. The shorter heights are commonly used in residential settings to reduce view obstructions.

\n

Taller fences are most often selected for commercial use because of the increased level of security that more height can offer. Taller chain link applications may also include barb wire.

\n

Chain link fence fabrics are also available in different gauges. A gauge is the measure of the diameter of the actual woven fabric metal. These sizes can vary widely, but 9 and 11½ gauges are the markets most common. 

\n

The higher the gauge number, the less thick than metal material.  Therefor the smaller 11½ gauge is a popular application for residential fences where the family children or pets are the priority.

\n

A more durable 9-gauge material is used when a higher level of security is needed.  This is more often the case for commercial or business applications. 

\n

The difference between galvanized and vinyl coated chain link is that a vinyl coating is a manufactured vinyl coating. The metal under the vinyl is actually already galvanized then the vinyl is placed around it.This is a highly relevant option when choosing between the two, because coated material is better equipped to handle weathering over time. 

\n
\n

Standard galvanized chain link will begin to rust over time. Galvanized and coated materials are similar in terms of their sturdiness and longevity. Galvanized chain link usually carries a 10 to 15 yr. warranty against rust and corrosion. This fence is maintenance free, doesn’t require painting, and meets

\n

ASTM specification 392 and federal specification R.R.F.-191.Galvanized fence tends to leave a rougher or “industrial” appearance. While vinyl presents an overall cleaner appearance and may even blend into the surroundings depending on the coating color selected.  This is one of the main reasons that higher end projects lean toward the vinyl coated fence materials.This will, of course, affect the final cost of the fence. The vinyl-coated material can increase the fence cost $1.50 per foot on a b 6-foot high fence. We hope this post will assist in determining the best chain link for your residential, commercial or government property.

\n

 Black vinyl chain link usually carries a 10 to 15 yr. manufacturer warranty against chipping peeling and fading and it is virtually maintenance free.One of the major advantages of any chain link fence is its somewhat transparent (able to be seen through) design. However, it does not completely disappear to the eye. Because of this, the consumer must think about how they want their final project to look.

Chain link fence fabrics are also available in different gauges. A gauge is the measure of the diameter of the actual woven fabric metal. These sizes can vary widely, but 9 and 11½ gauges are the markets most common. 

\n

The higher the gauge number, the less thick than metal material.  Therefor the smaller 11½ gauge is a popular application for residential fences where the family children or pets are the priority.

\n

A more durable 9-gauge material is used when a higher level of security is needed.  This is more often the case for commercial or business applications. 

\n

The difference between galvanized and vinyl coated chain link is that a vinyl coating is a manufactured vinyl coating. The metal under the vinyl is actually already galvanized then the vinyl is placed around it.This is a highly relevant option when choosing between the two, because coated material is better equipped to handle weathering over time. 

\n
\n

Standard galvanized chain link will begin to rust over time. Galvanized and coated materials are similar in terms of their sturdiness and longevity. Galvanized chain link usually carries a 10 to 15 yr. warranty against rust and corrosion. This fence is maintenance free, doesn’t require painting, and meets

\n

ASTM specification 392 and federal specification R.R.F.-191.Galvanized fence tends to leave a rougher or “industrial” appearance. While vinyl presents an overall cleaner appearance and may even blend into the surroundings depending on the coating color selected.  This is one of the main reasons that higher end projects lean toward the vinyl coated fence materials.This will, of course, affect the final cost of the fence. The vinyl-coated material can increase the fence cost $1.50 per foot on a b 6-foot high fence. We hope this post will assist in determining the best chain link for your residential, commercial or government property.

\n

 Black vinyl chain link usually carries a 10 to 15 yr. manufacturer warranty against chipping peeling and fading and it is virtually maintenance free.One of the major advantages of any chain link fence is its somewhat transparent (able to be seen through) design. However, it does not completely disappear to the eye. Because of this, the consumer must think about how they want their final project to look.

Chain link fence is one of the most popular types of fence requested and installed today.

\n\n

This popularity stems in part from chain link’s relatively inexpensive price and ability to mold to many safety concerns. This particular fence material is very flexible and ease of installation is a definite asset to its’ versatility. On a project with different ground elevations, a chain link fence may be the ideal solution.

\n

Chain link is also ideal for projects that will cross stretches of terrain where beautification is not the primary intention.

\n

Rear perimeter of military bases or any large government installations usually include at least one chain link fence application. It typically takes a back seat to high security steel and automatic gate applications but offers inconspicuous support to the other application as well as the denoting the property line.

Chain link fences come in a range of heights that make it suitable for a variety of applications. The shorter heights are commonly used in residential settings to reduce view obstructions.

ANTI TERRORISM FORCE PROTECTION (ATFP)

\n

The United States Marines defines Antiterrorism/Force Protection as a “security program designed to protect military personnel, civilian employees, family members, facilities, and equipment in all locations and situations from the calculated use of violence or threat of violence to inculcate fear, intended to coerce or to intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of goals that are generally political, religious or ideological.”

\n
AT/FP perimeter security systems are generally used when the highest level of protection is needed. They are used around government buildings like the Pentagon, prisons, jails, nuclear power plants, Federal Reserve banks and other high-security buildings.  ATFP systems are designed to reduce the vulnerability of and to protect lives, facilities, equipment and information. In fencing, Anti-Terrorism & Force Protection refers to how much force a structure can withstand before becoming compromised by an attacker.

Steel cables are cemented into the ground and wrung along the accompanying fence or gate. Bollards are short and thick (iron or steel) metal posts set at even intervals. They are often times used to control traffic, but bollards can also be used to make certain fencing ATFP compliant.Reinforcement measures and ornamental fences can make AT/FP fence or gate requirements very expensive.

\n

Part of the United States Policy on Terrorism dictates that all lawful measures to prevent [terrorism] acts and bring to justice those who commit them will be taken. Therefore, while Anti-Terrorism Force Protection fencing systems may be costly, they are often necessary.

They are often times used to control traffic, but bollards can also be used to make certain fencing ATFP compliant.Reinforcement measures and ornamental fences can make AT/FP fence or gate requirements very expensive.

Part of the United States Policy on Terrorism dictates that all lawful measures to prevent [terrorism] acts and bring to justice those who commit them will be taken. Therefore, while Anti-Terrorism Force Protection fencing systems may be costly, they are often necessary.

ANTI TERRORISM FORCE PROTECTION (ATFP)

\n

The United States Marines defines Antiterrorism/Force Protection as a “security program designed to protect military personnel, civilian employees, family members, facilities, and equipment in all locations and situations from the calculated use of violence or threat of violence to inculcate fear, intended to coerce or to intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of goals that are generally political, religious or ideological.”

\n
AT/FP perimeter security systems are generally used when the highest level of protection is needed. They are used around government buildings like the Pentagon, prisons, jails, nuclear power plants, Federal Reserve banks and other high-security buildings.  ATFP systems are designed to reduce the vulnerability of and to protect lives, facilities, equipment and information. In fencing, Anti-Terrorism & Force Protection refers to how much force a structure can withstand before becoming compromised by an attacker.

The following ratings have been used to issue contracts for Crash Rated Fences since 2000:

\n
    \n
  • \n

    K4 rating is for a vehicle traveling 30 mph

    \n
  • \n
  • \n

    K8 rating is for a vehicle traveling 40 mph

    \n
  • \n
  • \n

    K12 rating is for a vehicle traveling 50 mph

K-Ratings are levels of barrier protection as determined by the Department of State (DoS). A 'K' Rating is also known as a Crash Test Certification. K Ratings are given to a fence, bollard, gate, or other barrier to indicate how effective that barrier is at protecting what it is guarding by measuring the barrier's stopping power in relation to the speed and weight to an incoming vehicle. The standard unit of measurement is based on a 15,000 lb. (6810 kg.) gross weight vehicle impacting a barrier perpendicularly.

\n

In order to be DOS certified, the barrier must not bend beyond 39 inches past the preventative impact boundary of the barrier when penetrated by a vehicle.

What kind of wrought-iron, steel, or aluminum ornamental type of Fence is ATFP Compliant? Steel fences are the Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection standard for high-security government buildings; but basically any commercial or residential fence can be made ATFP compliant by installing cable or beam reinforcements.

\n

Steel cables are cemented into the ground and wrung along the accompanying fence or gate. Bollards are short and thick (iron or steel) metal posts set at even intervals. They are often times used to control traffic, but bollards can also be used to make certain fencing ATFP compliant.Reinforcement measures and ornamental fences can make AT/FP fence or gate requirements very expensive.
