Veterans Day is almost upon us, and we at Security Fence Company have always held great respect and admiration for those who have served our country and kept the Stars and Stripes flying over the greatest nation on earth.
Lately there has been a social media firestorm over respect for our military, our flag and our national anthem. There is no controversy here at Security Fence Company.
For over 45 years, we have sold, installed and serviced flagpoles, flags and patriotic banners of all types; and we’re proud to do so! It is our wish for all Americans to remember those who serve and honor those who have sacrificed so we can be free.
If you choose to display your patriotism, we stock a full line of flagpoles up to 33’ overall height. In addition to the various sizes of United States flags, we also carry Pennsylvania state flags and POW/MIA flags to honor those who have not yet returned.
Please show your colors this Veteran’s Day and every day because freedom has never been free.

Many of you may have seen the story on the local news recently about the sinkhole in Ephrata. Security Fence Company’s Temporary Fence Division was called upon to secure the area to protect lives and property. Within twelve hours of the request, our management and crews had delivered and installed over 600 linear feet of 6’ high temporary chain link fence which will stand guard 24/7 until repairs can be made.
Since 1972, Security Fence Company has responded to private, public, government, business and institutional customers with this type of outstanding service. We are proud to be a part of Central Pennsylvania’s community and are always pleased to serve. Contact us when you find yourself in need of perimeter security access controls, surveillance cameras, temporary and permanent fence of all types, decks, railings or flagpoles. Our service, pricing and professionalism are unmatched in the industry.
Since 1972, Security Fence Company has distributed and installed chain link fencing. That’s 44 years of perimeter security and peace of mind for our residential, commercial and industrial customers.
Chain link fencing offers a unique set of features that make it very desirable. Although it does not offer the privacy of some other fencing types, it allows for low maintenance and maximum security at a very affordable price. When properly installed, chain link fence will literally last a lifetime.
Our decades of experience has seen changes to the colors and coatings available for chain link fence, but the basic design is the same now as it was years ago. Most colored chain link fence framework is now polyester coated and available in black, forest green, olive green, chocolate brown and even white. The fabric is color matched by the use of vinyl coating to allow for flexibility when stretching the wire. Naturally all metals are either aluminum or galvanized steel before the colors are applied to prohibit rust and weather deterioration.
The addition of automatic closing gates and child resistant latches keeps chain link fence in the number one position as the perfect enclosure for pets, children, pools and yards.

Since it is typically much taller and serves to block the view of your property from the outside, a privacy fence can be a good option for many homeowners. You will want to be informed about all the features before making your final decision, and the following outlines some benefits for your consideration.
When used in conjunction with landscaping materials, you can form a beautiful setting or define an area of your yard. In fact, the height of a privacy fence may allow it to serve as a “wall” to enclose a new and trendy Outdoor Room – whether it is an outdoor kitchen, dining area, pool scape, spa or some other personal space taking advantage of the outdoors. Consider the possibilities.
Perhaps more than any other type of perimeter barrier, a privacy fence will offer your property some shelter from the elements. The fence will act as a windbreaker, protecting you and whatever it encloses from the effects of wind. Moreover, it will often also offer shade from the sun, depending on the layout in relation to your house.
A yard confined within a privacy fence will serve to keep out intruders – including the neighborhood animals – and it keeps your property hidden from prying eyes. At the same time it keeps your children and pets within the boundary, especially since they cannot see beyond the fence and be tempted to stray.
Typically, the height and solid construction of a privacy fence can lessen the amount of noise that your yard suffers from the outside so that it is not as intrusive as it would be with another type of fence or with no barrier at all. In addition, it will help to danpen the noise coming from your yard making you a considerate neighbor.

For those of you who are thinking that fences only belong outside, we're here to enlighten you.
Creative interior designers often have a different idea; and from time to time, they come to us here at Security Fence Company for help. We are always glad to accommodate as we did when a customer wanted to add a special touch to a bedroom with a unique headboard made from a single fence panel. The result was a beautiful focal point in this bedroom -- one that could likely not have been achieved with the use of a traditional bed headboard.
This is not a new concept. Creative homeowners have been using items such as fencing panels for many indoor uses. They have created stunning room dividers, railings and walls. They have added fence panels -- from split rail to white picket and more -- to give another dimension in front of a full wall mural. They have even incorporated outdoor elements like fencing, decking and railings into custom-built furniture.
Let's not forget all the innovative displays and decor crafted by commercial decorators and found in restaurants and retail stores where decorating themes are designed to capture the imagination of the customer -- everything from wood for rustic western to ornamental aluminum for european chic.
How about you? Have you made use of fencing or other nontraditional items in your indoor decorating? If so, why not share your creations with us? And if you have decorating ideas and could use our products, then let us be a part of your creative process. We can help you with your projects.
Needing some inspiration? Why not browse the online showroom here on our website or visit our company showroom in Red Lion, PA? Then let us know how we can help you make your home a decorator's showcase.

Many times our customers are searching for beautiful, private, outdoor entertainment areas for their homes. Security Fence Company’s expertise and full line of products makes us a single source for all your needs. Take, for instance, Mr. and Mrs. John Biancolli of New Freedom, PA, who were pleased with the way we met the complete package requirements for the Biancolli’s outdoor paradise.
We began construction with a gorgeous stamped concrete patio for the lower level. This area is not only dry and functional, but it was structurally designed and built to support the deck, steps, and screened-in porch above it.
Another important addition to the project was to include a doggie-door exiting the screened-in area for their three dogs.
Utilizing all maintenance-free materials, Security Fence Company, in conjunction with Private Paradise Contractors, built the perfect place for outdoor living. Having the deck with a roof, screened-in area and the patio below allows for large gatherings in a small area.
The backyard was then enclosed with a PVC privacy fence to create a private space on their property regardless of lot size and neighbors. The Biancolli dogs now have access to a safe and secure yard to romp and play in.
Mr. and Mrs. Biancolli can’t wait until Spring to start enjoying their new private and secure outdoor habitat. They were gracious enough to express their gratitude to Security Fence Company for handling the entire process from planning, designing, obtaining permits, construction and inspections. They commented at how impressed they were with the professionalism of the workers and the attention to detail. Work was completed and we received final inspection and approval in January of 2016.
Dan Eveler retired from SFC after forty-two years of faithful service. Dan held many positions at Security Fence Co. utilizing many of the various talents he was blessed with. He began as a fence laborer, was a foreman for over fifteen years and was promoted to project superintendant. He finished his career as the sales and installation assistant to Duane Myers, our Construction Manager, who worked with Dan for over 37 of his 42 years at Security Fence Co.
Dan was instrumental in the growth of Security Fence Co. and was involved with all of our construction projects including chain link, PVC, ornamental aluminum and wood fencing. He built decks, railings, awnings and sunrooms. In addition, he installed access-controlled and automatic gates. Always stoic and a man of few words, Dan was a “get-it-done” type of gentleman. He trained and supervised SFC’s installation crews and foremen. The pride with which he performed his work has been passed on to our current employees by his example and work ethic.
A surprise breakfast was held for Dan, and the ownership presented him with a brand new retro Security Fence jacket and a custom built coffee table. The table was hand crafted from one of the original parts carts from the warehouse at SFC. After all his years of stellar service, we wish Dan Eveler the best as he retires to enjoy life and as he put it “complete his project list”. Nonetheless, we will still value his expertise and will not hesitate to call on him when his experience and advice are required.
This particular job required Security Fence Company to remove existing walls on a poorly built 8’ x 20’ addition.
After installing new Security Fence Co PVC structural support posts, adding a high quality auto-closing screen door and installing AZEK maintenance-free trim, our customer now has a beautiful and useful screened-in porch adjacent to their Security Fence Co deck.
The renovation allows them to relax, dine and entertain outdoors, free from the nuisance of bugs and direct sunlight.
In our customer's words...
Thanks so much for your design and construction of our screened-in porch. Your crew at Security Fence was top notch and your recommendation to add recessed lights and a ceiling fan let us use our porch well into the night – bug free! Great job!

Arbors come in many sizes, colors, styles and materials; and they can serve many purposes. So you should find several options to meet your landscaping needs. Before choosing your arbor, be sure to decide how and where it will be used.
Will it be incorporated into the structure of your garden, designed to serve as the framework for plants and shrubs – maybe as a focal point with vines climbing up and over. A deep arbor might work best in this instance – perhaps offering enough room for seating. You might use pavers underfoot to define the space, with plant material offering screening above.
Will it be used as part of the landscaping perimeter? Often an arbor can further define the edge of your outdoor space and might even be paired with a gate for this purpose. This is often done by fitting the arbor in an opening in a row of flowering shrubs.
Will your arbor be the visual entrance to your garden – often combined with a pathway. Sometimes the pathway will begin at the arbor and stretch into the garden. In other cases, a path might lead up to, under and past the arbor.
The color of the plant material and other garden accents will determine the color of your arbor once you decide if it should stand out as a focal point or recede into the background. A lighter color arbor will usually blend well if it will supporting flowering plant material, whereas shrubs will best blend with a darker color.
Arbors are constructed of a variety of materials – from wood to ornamental metal to the no-maintenance PVC options. Much depends upon your other landscaping options, but these days PVC can be of many colors and textures which might well blend with other accessories.
Whatever your choice, you will find that an arbor will add versatility and a touch of beauty to your outdoor space.
Our experienced sales representatives here at Security Fence Company in Red Lion, PA, can show you our selection of arbors and many other items to enhance your outdoor space. They’ll answer your questions and help you decide what works best for your circumstances. So CONTACT US at your convenience to get the details.
Whether you want to create a living wall of climbing vines, a splash of color to break up a wide expanse of boring exterior wall, a means of privacy, a vertical garden or something else, you will find that a trellis can make your job easy.
If an area of your yard needs more color or visual interest, then place your trellis near a wall or section of your fence. Be sure to leave space all the way around the trellis to allow plants to climb and grow their way up around the slats.
When you add a trellis to your landscaping plan, be sure to choose colors and plant types for the trellis that are repeated in the surrounding outdoor space such as flower beds and containers.
In fact, growing plants in containers placed at the base of a trellis will offer more ground area and expand your garden vertically for an entirely different appearance. This can be done with evergreens, blooming plants and even vegetables. Evergreen plants require a minimum of maintenance, offer the best privacy because of their dense growth; and many are self-climbers that do not require you to attach them to the trellis. Blooming plants – whether annuals or perennials – offer colorful splashes as they climb but often require you to attach them to the trellis to start the climbing process. Vegetables can also be grown vertically with the help of a trellis, especially cucumbers, beans and tomatoes to allow you to increase your garden’s yield; and, when they die off in the fall, you can replace them with blooming plants.
Freestanding trellises are very useful for setting apart or defining the sections of your yard. For example, to offer privacy to an outdoor sitting area or a pool or pond, add one or more trellises with plant material that blends with the landscape and is dense enough to obscure the view.
Trellises can be found in a variety of colors, styles and materials. They can be made of wood or ornamental metal such as iron or aluminum. However, if maintenance is a priority for you, then consider the many shapes and sizes of PVC trellises to meet your needs.
Here at Security Fence Company, our sales people welcome the opportunity to help you explore your choices, learn about using trellises and decide on the right one for your landscaping needs. Why not CONTACT US at your convenience to find out how we might help you and/or to request a Quote?
You might hear the Sunroom called by another name such as conservatory, solarium, Florida room or something else. No matter the name, the sunroom is a glassed-in living space typically attached to the house and accessible from indoors. It is designed to function as additional living area to let you enjoy lots of sunlight and fresh air. Moreover, Remodeling Magazine reports that "the resale value of a sunroom averages 89% - 115% of original cost" making it an excellent investment for most homeowners,
The most important decision you’ll have to make when planning a sunroom is its location with respect to your home, and also considering the climate in which you live.
If your home is in the southern climate where temperatures are higher, an eastern exposure will help keep the room cooler since it will get more direct sun in the morning and shade the rest of the day. In northern climates, however, if you expect to use the sunroom often in the afternoon or early evening into the spring and fall, an eastern exposure might cause the room might to be chilly.
In the cooler temperatures of northern climates, a southern exposure is typically sought because it will receive the most sunlight each day. Whereas, in the heat of the southern climates, the sunroom with southern exposure might require air conditioning to create a comfortable living space.
Whether in the South or North, a sunroom with western orientation will typically be exposed to harsh afternoon sunlight that will need to be shaded.
In the North, a sunroom facing north will offer partial shade most of the day which can cause the room to be too cool and damp. However, in the warmer southern climates, a sunroom with a northern exposure would likely eliminate the need for shading or air conditioning.
Here at Security Fence Company in Red Lion, PA, our experienced representatives can help you explore your options – from location, elevation, materials used and more – to arrive at the perfect sunroom solution for your home and lifestyle. Why not CONTACT US today or GET A QUOTE at your convenience.
