Steel fencing is the strongest and most durable fencing available. While it is available for residential and light commercial applications it is more often used in high security applications. Aside from the obvious strength of steel fencing, steel fences are usually welded or riveted together. This opposes what is typical of other fencing assembly where parts are held together by movable components. This adds great stability to a fencing structure.
In contrast to an aluminum fence which could endure some minor damage where there are children playing or a casual accident, steel fencing can guard against a stronger impact. Steel fencing will sometimes require sanding or repainting to help deal with rusting that ultimately will try to reclaim the metal back to its natural state. This is why steel is not typically seen along coast lines where salt air can expedite the rusting process.
