Protecting property from potential intruders is a top-of-mind priority for virtually every property owner. In this regard, installing a security fence usually springs to mind unbidden. One of the most revered security fencing products available to Australian property owners is chain link fencing. This type of fencing is essentially made of fabricated steel wire knit to form a transparent diamond pattern, which acts as an effective physical barrier to keep prying, would-be intruders at bay. The see-through design of chain link fencing also enhances security by making it possible for property owners to see who is on the other side of the fence. Any suspicious individuals lurking outside the fence can be spotted and even identified before they can cause security breaches.
But no good thing is without a downside. In situations where privacy is desired, chain link fencing in itself, may not be a feasible option. Why? Because outsiders would be able to see right through it! Luckily, there are lots of different things that property owners can do to deny outsiders an unobstructed view through their chain link fencing.
Continue reading on below to learn about some of the most practical ways to add privacy to your chain wire fence.
- Installing privacy screens: Many chain wire fencing contractors can also install privacy slats to help cover up the fence wire and increase privacy. The slats may be made of either wood or plastic material and can be custom-made to fit any size of fence. This way, property owners will be able to enjoy all the benefits that come with a chain link fence installation but with enhanced privacy. Privacy slats will enhance privacy immediately after installation.
- Planting foliage: For those who'd love to go green, planting vines, trees and shrubs around a chain link fence can also enhance privacy. As the plants grow, they will hide the fence and prevent outsiders' from seeing right through the fence. It is, however, important to note that foliage takes time to become tall, so planting vines, trees, shrubbery or any other type of plants will not provide an immediate solution to property owners looking to add privacy to their properties.
As you can see, it is possible to add privacy to your property while using chain wire fencing. Don't miss the chance to benefit from all the other perks that come with chain link fence installation simply because privacy matters to you. Talk to fencing contractors to learn more.
