Industrial Strength Fencing Applications

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

For industrial applications, you need heavy-duty fencing. Industrial fencing needs to be able to stand up to the elements, as well as the abuse that can come along with industrial activity. For these purposes, iron and aluminum fencing work best. Iron and aluminum are both prized for their durability, longevity, and strength, making them ideal for industrial use. As a custom manufacturer, our metals are held to the highest standards of quality. We manufacture everything in-house to ensure it meets these standards. Here are some examples of potential industrial applications for our metal fencing.

Highways and Roadways

Whether you’re building a new on-ramp or a pedestrian bridge over a busy highway, metal is the ideal material for roadway fencing. Steel fencing is durable enough to withstand the elements, and strong enough to keep both pedestrians and motorists safe.

Industrial Enclosures

Outdoor enclosures are often necessary for things such as large HVAC components. This prevents them from being vandalized and ensures only qualified personnel can access HVAC units. Whether it’s louvered screening or aluminum, metal keeps enclosures strong and impermeable.

Gates and Perimeter Fencing

Large industrial complexes need to be fenced off to protect against vandalism and theft, and to protect anyone who may have otherwise wandered onto the property. Steel fencing provides a strong and long-lasting barrier that protects against intrusion.

Heavy Duty Highway Fencing from Hercules Custom Iron

Friday, December 13th, 2013

Highway projects require heavy duty fencing for several reasons. For one, longevity. Fences on the highway are exposed to elements 24/7. Whether it’s blistering sun or freezing rain, the fence has to be able to hold up. The other reason heavy duty fencing is needed on highways is for the purpose of protection. Guard rails protect cars from careening off an overpass in the event of an accident, and heavy duty iron fences protect pedestrians in areas with pedestrian traffic close to the highway.

Just because highway fencing has to be heavy duty, doesn’t mean it has to be utilitarian. Custom paint and designs can be used on lots of heavy duty fencing, ask us about what options are available for your specific project.

Heavy Duty Fencing from Hercules Custom Iron

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

Hercules Custom Iron has all of your heavy duty fencing needs for any possible application. With us, you get the experience that comes with having worked on many heavy duty fencing projects. We’ve provided fencing for highways as well as heavy construction projects that holds its own against the elements and man-made objects.

Why is our heavy duty fencing so strong? We make it ourselves in our own manufacturing plant. This way we get to oversee and control the quality of our iron and steel from start to finish, so we know that it will hold up. We also use techniques like our in-house-powder coating, which adds another degree of strength at the end of the process with the painting of the fence. This process involves the addition of an anti-rust sealer, a zinc rich primer, and a polyester finish coat which offers an additional 8-10 mils of protection. We strengthen our heavy duty fence at every chance we get, which is why it will work great for your highway or construction application. Talk to us today about how we can help you in your heavy duty fence needs.
