Tamara Aspeling recently wrote an in-depth story for On-Site about the security fencing industry in Canada. She suggested it was evolving as rapidly as any sector in the industry.

However, Roma Fence’s Christina Marra had something to add to the discussion, maintaining that chain link fencing is still a fine solution. She said:

“There are mini mesh chain link options that would address the issue of chain link fence fabric being cut by bolt cutters. Oftentimes, clients with a high security requirement also add mid and bottom rail to further slow down any process of getting into an enclosed property. Chain link remains one of the most effective perimeter security options available and supports Canadian manufactured and fabricated products.”

Do you agree or disagree with her assertions? Let us know in the comments below.
