Commonly Used Types of Commercial Fencing


Just like homes, businesses also need protection and privacy, and what better way is there to ensure both than with a high quality commercial fence.

Commercial fencing should be suitable for any application, regardless if your business needs privacy and security, or to enhance its aesthetics. Aside from offering competitive pricing, it is vital that your Texas fencing company has relevant industry experience so that it can cater to your specific needs accordingly.

Chain link commercial fencing

Wood and chain link are two of the most commonly used commercial fencing. Wood works particularly well for apartment complexes and school facilities, whereas chain link is great for parking lots and storage facilities, parks and sport fencing.

In fact, most businesses use chain link fencing for security reasons. While the height of the fence can be anywhere from 4′ to 12′, most commercial applications only need 7′ (6′ chain link, plus a 1′ top of barbed wire). Commercial chain link fencing includes corner posts, line posts, and a top rail.

The outside corners of a chain link fence are called corner posts. In order to make sure the fence is stable, the posts are set in concrete, 36″ deep in the ground. Next, the line posts must be set in concrete 24” deep and 10 feet apart; their outside diameter depending on the type of commercial application. Finally, the top rail of the fence is made from pipe and has the primary goal of bringing stability to the chain link fabric attached to it.

Regulations And Permissions For Your Loft Conversion

Before you can convert your loft, check whether you need to meet certain building and planning regulations first. A loft conversion company in London can handle all the paperwork and take care of all these issues for you.


Therefore, if you want to convert your loft into a habitable room, you will need to abide health and safety laws, as well as construction regulations, such as ensuring sufficient structural strength of the new floor, stairs leading safely to the conversion, and a safe fire escape, all without compromising structural stability (and this includes the stability of the roof that is already in place). Moreover, the new conversion must be reasonably sound proofed from the rooms below.

Planning permission

Planning permission in the case of loft conversions is required in specific cases, as laid out in the updated planning law of October 2008. Thus, if your property deeds or a previous planning permission limits the development rights of your property, or if work is to be carried out on the loft of a flat, if you plan to raise your roof ridge line, or alter any part of the roof facing a highway, you will need to obtain permission first.

Other situations requiring permission include buildings that are of architectural or historic interest and fall under an “Article 4 Direction”, or are situated in a conservation area. Regulations also apply when adding volume externally to your loft with a dormer that exceeds 40 cubic meters for terraced houses and 50 cubic meters for all other houses.
