Installing Warehouse Interior Fencing to Secure Merchandise: Some Key Considerations

Many managers and foremen choose to install interior fencing to secure merchandise in their warehouses. The reasons they choose to do so could be complex. Whether the fencing serves to increase security, promote employee safety, or prevent shrinkage, installing warehouse interior fencing could greatly enhance the effectiveness of a warehouse work environment.

Before you begin the installation process, however, there are several considerations that should be made.

First, you must consider what type of fencing would best serve your needs: regular chain link or vinyl fencing. Although vinyl fencing has the added benefits of being warp and rust resistant, the fact that your fencing is indoors may preclude such concerns. In the end, you must weigh the options and decide which type of interior fencing will best meet your requirements.

Second, you must prepare your warehouse for installation. In many cases this may mean clearing the area entirely, although in some limited scenarios, it only means that you will need to shift your stock to the side temporarily while the fencing is installed. Either way, you will want to plan ahead so as not to be caught off guard on the day of installation. With a little bit of foresight, installation day does need not derail an entire day’s work.

Third, once your interior fencing installed, you must implement a method to keep it in good repair. A regular system of checks and routine maintenance will ensure that your investment pays off in the long run.
