How does an anti-climb fence work?

Anti-climb fences are safer than regular chain link fences. Anti-climb fences also have a tougher, double vertical wire welded construction that makes them harder to cross. When used in combination with barbed wire or razor wire, toothed spikes or security fence spikes on top of the fence, anti-climb fencing is our most popular choice among high security customers such as prisons, public facilities, government offices and military properties.

Benefits of Installing Anti-Climbing Fences

Anti-climb fences can serve a variety of purposes, depending on where and how they are installed. They can keep intruders and thieves out, keep dangerous or unstable occupants safe, and maintain the sanctity or security of an area. Here are some of the benefits that our different types of clients have gained from anti-climbing fences:

Office Buildings

Anti-climb fences can help limit access to private parking lots and protect vulnerable areas such as dumpsters and HVAC equipment.


Many condominiums and hotels have pool areas that serve as amenities for guests. Anti-climb fences can keep children safe and prevent drunk or overzealous people from jumping into the pool, potentially endangering other guests and possibly even drowning.

Stadiums and sports fields

Prevents people from wandering onto the field after a game has started, discourages event breakers, and prevents those taken away for being disruptive from returning.

Industrial facilities

Often, factories, warehouses and utility plants have equipment and tools that are both dangerous and valuable. Protect property and keep the public safe by discouraging after-hours trespassing.

Anti-Climbing Fence Frequently Asked Questions

How much does an anti-climb fence cost?

Your price will depend on the price of raw materials, processing costs, and the size of your site.

If your budget is limited and you are not too concerned about corrosion and rusting, Galfan coating without vinyl/polymer coating may be best for your needs. In highly corrosive environments, a Galfan coating with a vinyl/polymer coating is the minimum level of protection you need. In general, we recommend choosing the most durable option that you can afford.

How effective is the anti-climb fence?

The design of an anti-climb fence makes it virtually impossible to climb. But it also improves security in other ways. Anti-climb fences are reinforced to prevent cutting or being knocked over. You can also reinforce your fence with a concrete base or rebar from below to prevent tunneling.

What kind of maintenance is required for anti-climbing fences?

It depends on the coating you choose, but generally speaking, anti-climb fencing is extremely low maintenance. It's designed to be very durable and resist damage, so you likely won't need to make many repairs or inspect it as often.
