How We Make Our Non-Conductive Fiberglass Fences

non conductive fenceYou are already familiar with just how attractive and durable a non-conductive fence is, but you might be wondering what exactly the process is for making these fiberglass fences. It is actually very interesting! We begin by pulling various glass products through a resin bath loaded with a special chemical formula. This creates our patented composite products.

The combination of resin, glass, and other components are then pulled through steel dies that are heated over 400 degree Fahrenheit. They are then slowly moved through the die, which cools them off and ensures that the final product is perfectly formed for the type of fence we are creating.

Finally, the finished fencing is cut and assembled to meet the specifications of whatever order is being filled. This process enables our manufacturers to ensure that a fence that perfect meets the needs of our clients–as well as our high quality standards–is created each and every time we begin production.

In most situations, that is all the work that needs to be done to create a non-conductive, fiberglass fence, but that doesn’t mean other options aren’t available. For individuals interested in an ornamental style, our fences can have an optional coating applied to create a sheen that delivers both improved UV protection as well as enhanced beauty.


Fiberglass vs. Metal Materials for Fencing

non-conductive fenceMetal fences have been the standard for many years, but as technologies and industries advanced, the need for a new type of fence became apparent. Power plants and facilities such as airports called for fencing that provided security while also meeting their particular conductivity requirements.

Fences that allow for the seamless and easy transmission of radio and microwaves while at the same time being an electrically non-conductive fence are now needed. Too easily, a fence made of metal will interfere with radio signals. Even direr, metal fences have to be entirely and effectively grounded before they can be considered safe around electrical facilities such as sub-stations. Fiberglass fences do not need to be grounded and are RF transparent so that they won’t disrupt the transmission of electronic or radio signals such as radar or instrument landing systems at airports.

Fences that do not conduct electricity, like the ones we produce at Fiberfence, are the go-to choice when you are looking for a safe, easy to maintain, and durable option.

Not only do fiberglass fences not conduct energy, but they do not conduct heat either, so on a blistering summer day, you can safely touch them if you need to for maintenance or another purpose. Also, speaking of maintenance, fiberglass does not corrode, so you do not have to worry about it rusting away over time.

These fences are safe, affordable, and long-lasting. What’s not to like? A non-conductive fence is the solution for areas where the transmission of electricity and radio waves is a problem. Fiberfence offers this product to all.


Why You Should Consider Composite Fencing

Composite fencing around a facilityComposite fences are a popular choice for both homeowners and business owners. However, is composite ideal for your property? Here are some of the top reasons why you should consider getting composite fencing for your exterior.

You Want Something Low Maintenance

Composite material is engineered to be as low maintenance as possible. It is safeguarded against mildew, fading, and insect damage. Furthermore, there is no need to paint or seal it. When it does require cleaning, you can spray it down with a hose or gently scrub it.

You Need Something That is Built to Last

Dense, durable, and long lasting — they are all perfect words to describe composite fences. This fencing style can easily last over 30 years without any need for repair or replacement. Furthermore, since the color does not fade easily, you can replace a damaged board with a new one without worrying about it standing out from the others.

You’re Concerned about the Environment

Composite fencing is made from recycled materials, and it can be recycled again when it has lost its utility. Furthermore, composite materials are free from the toxic additives found in pressure-treated wood.

You Want Fencing with Long-Term Value

New fencing is always an investment, so you might as well invest in something that will add long-term value to your property. Thanks to composite’s longevity and minimal maintenance needs, it offers great value even after decades.
