The Importance of Security Fencing

8/19/2018 (Permalink)

Your commercial property in Chicago, IL, may be protected by various security measures when it is fully functional. If a fire ravages your building, however, it can become vulnerable to those who are inclined to take advantage of others' misfortune. A security fence around the perimeter of your property can protect it while it is uninhabited or undergoing fire mitigation. It can also save you money with your insurance company.

Insurance Savings

Your insurance adjuster assesses the property to decide how much the insurance company will pay to recover your damages. If more losses occur because you do not take the appropriate building security precautions, however, your insurance company is not going to cover those losses. There are several problems that could stem from a lack of security:

• Theft of personal property
• Vandalism
• Physical injury

When the insurance adjuster sees that you have taken the initiative to put up a security fence, this can simplify your claims process and get you a bigger settlement. If the area is secure, the adjuster is likely to determine that most if not all of the damage occurred as a result of the fire.

Trespass Prevention

Security measures can give you peace of mind. They keep people out, which in turn keeps out all the problems that trespassers could cause. You protect yourself from intentional offenses, such as theft or vandalism. You also protect yourself and others from accidents. Security fencing can keep children and wayward pets out of the area, keeping them safe from the dangers of a building that has suffered fire damage. For a little bit of effort, you can avoid a lot of potential problems.

Putting up a security fence while your building is being restored is the smart thing to do. It keeps out people who are up to no good as well as those who are merely wandering away from their usual path out of confusion or curiosity. In the long run, it can save you stress and money.
