Animal fencing safety tips

From keeping pets contained and safe to keeping pests out, our fencing solutions can be an extremely effective method of enclosing commercial and residential properties.

But our fences can be made even more secure by employing a few neat tricks that’ll help you better predict and control animal entry and exit on your property.

Keeping animals in

Tip #1 – Use chicken wire

If you’re concerned about Fido running off onto the highway or into a neighbour’s yard, try burying chicken wire along the base of your chainwire fence. This will ensure that, upon discovering the chicken wire, your pet will be discouraged from digging further.

Tip #2 – Place obstacles near fence

By placing large stones near the bottom of your fence, you’ll physically prevent your pet from being able to dig out. Take care to ensure that each stone is somewhat ‘stuck’ in the ground; they’re no use if your pet can easily push them out of the way.

Alternatively, you can place a wooden beam running horizontally underneath the fence, which may be more practical if you’ve got a gate.

Keeping animals out

Tip #1 – Ensure that fencing is tall enough

If you’ve got a concern about an climbing onto your property, ensuring that your chainwire fence is built high enough will be of great help. Contacting a fencing specialist like the ones we have here at Chainwire Fencing Specialist is a great way to get a fence that meets such considerations.

Tip #2 – Consider a harder-to-climb fencing option

Aside from regular diamond chainwire fencing, another style that we offer here at Chainwire Fencing Specialist is galvanized security fences consisting of several vertical beams. This fencing style is much harder to climb, for both animals and human intruders, making it quite common among business and industrial property owners.
