Metal Fencing: Types and Uses

Posted on by Harrow Fencing Team

For security purposes, metal fencing is superior to any other material, offering a stable and versatile option to keep your commercial or domestic property safe. There are a variety of metal fencing options, each with their own ideal uses. This article looks at the different types of metal fencing available, and what they are best used for.

Steel Palisade Fencing

Steel palisade fencing is ideal for those that require high-level security for their premises or home. Palisade fences provide superior protection, with a range a height options to choose from, and at affordable prices. This type of fencing is popular with industrial properties, but can also be used in a domestic setting to restrict certain areas or if vandalism and crime is a serious risk factor.


  • Security fencing
  • Restricted areas e.g. septic tanks
  • Power block
  • Railway Lines
  • Domestic homes


Bow Top Railings

Bow top fencing’s lack of rough or sharp edges, or dangerous gaps or holes, makes it a popular choice for public areas. It is an aesthetically pleasing type of fencing with low maintenance needs, but still provides adequate security as it can still be difficult to climb over.


  • Ornamental railing
  • Child-safe security fence
  • Playgrounds
  • Schools
  • Public spaces e.g. parks
  • Clifftops


Wire Mesh Fencing

Wire mesh fencing is a versatile and cost effective fencing option that can be used for many applications. Mesh can be ordered in a range of heights and mesh sizes, ensuring the perfect design can be found for any need.

This type of fencing is popular for use as a security measure and deterrent for vandalism, but can also be used for a range of other premises such as a garden fence, or even sports ground mesh fencing where a taller height than average and visibility is required.


  • Commercial security
  • Domestic fencing
  • Sports grounds
  • Parks
  • Pet fencing/chicken coops
