Fire loss in a Tempe, AZ building

In the unfortunate event of a fire, you want to do everything you can to protect your business in Tempe,AZ, from further damage. Installing a security fence can help keep your building safe from various types of harm in the aftermath of a fire. Below are some key benefits of having protective fencing installed on your commercial building’s property.

Keeps Building and Property Clean

After a fire, some visitors might attempt to help out during the recovery process. While they may have good intentions, allowing them to step onto your property or into your building can create additional damage. Some ways people could cause further harm include:

  • Bringing dirty water into building
  • Spreading soot particles throughout property
  • Bringing traces of smoke into building

These factors can aggravate the damage already caused by the fire and make the recovery process more difficult. Having a fence surrounding your property helps to prevent this behavior from occurring.

Alerts Visitors

When you have a security fence preventing access to your building, it can thwart intruders and other unwanted visitors. Some people may see your damaged building as an indication that no one is inside and use that as an opportunity to vandalize the property or steal valuable items. Fencing also tells your employees that they aren’t yet permitted to enter the building in case they wish to check the condition of their personal belongings.

Helps Support Insurance Claim

If you plan to make an insurance claim for fire damage, your policy will likely require you to take reasonable measures to protect your property from additional damage. Having a protective fence installed is an effective way to prevent further harm, and it shows your insurance company that you’ve made an effort to keep your property safe.
When your commercial building is guarded by a security fence, you can be one step closer towards a full recovery. Be sure to have a fire restoration specialist assess your property to ensure that all damage is properly taken care of.
