    • Security Fencing: This type of fencing is designed to provide maximum security to a construction site by deterring intruders and restricting unauthorized access. Typically, security fencing is made of materials such as steel or chain link and may include features like razor wire or anti-climb barriers.
    • Privacy Fencing: Privacy fencing is often used to create a secluded area, such as a back garden or pool area. These fences can be made of wood, vinyl, or other materials and can provide a range of privacy levels.
    • Safety Fencing: Usually temporary safety fencing is installed around construction sites to keep pedestrians and vehicles away from dangerous areas. This type of fencing is typically made of plastic or metal and can be easily removed once the construction is completed.
    • Decorative Fencing: Decorative fencing is often used to enhance the aesthetic appeal of a property. It can be made of various materials such as wood, wrought iron, or vinyl, and can include ornamental designs or patterns.
    • Soundproof Fencing: This type of fencing is designed to reduce noise levels and is commonly used in residential areas near busy roads or highways.
