A Temporary Security Fence May Be Needed After a Fire

If your business suffers a serious fire, one problem you may not be expecting is trespassers on the property. Most of them may be harmless, but some can cause serious problems. A temporary security fence is a cheap alternative to permanent fencing that can stop problems with trespassers:

  • Children may be injured.
  • Animals may be destructive.
  • Thieves may steal.

These fences can be used quickly and are the affordable standard for low-security needs.

Easy To Find
Construction fencing is found at any hardware store and makes an excellent security barrier for most circumstances. The bright orange color is immediately visible and stands out for less chance of an accident.

Light and Quick
The fencing can be put up very quickly — literally the same day as your fire in many cases — and it’s so light, it doesn’t need much bracing. To keep out animals, it has to be tightened, but that’s also easy to do and can be the fastest solution to an immediate security need.

Part of the Package
Along with a security fence, the easiest and most effective way to limit access to your fire-impacted commercial property in Oak Tree, OK, is to hire a fire damage restoration expert to tarp and board the damaged area. No matter what caused damage, once the building envelope is broken, the inner areas are exposed to the elements, causing further problems that may not be covered by insurance.
Insurers expect you to take reasonable precautions after a fire, including covering exposed areas within a reasonable time. In most cases, restoration professionals take care of everything, including the fencing and the exposed places. They’ll board up areas to prevent human access and cover the rest with tarps. They can then begin the restoration process with an eye to getting the areas of the business most needed to operate ready as soon as possible. The goal is to reduce your business interruption and get your revenue stream flowing again.
A temporary security fence is an easy and inexpensive part of protecting your business after a disaster. Any low-security area can be effectively controlled with such a barrier.
