'it's just a shame that a church that offers so much to a community gets taken advantage of'.
Tony Lester with the Christian Fellowship Baptist Church in Gaston is building a six foot security fence to protect their new air-conditioner units"
It is a very good idea to protect the mechanical area's of your church. The mechanical/engineering room inside your church should always be locked. Most buildings have a mechanical area on the outside of the building as well. A fence is a very smart way to keep unwanted visitors away from this expensive equipment. Whether it is a villain looking to steal the copper out of the air conditioning unit or simply kids being unwise and mischievous, you want to limit access to areas that could ultimately cause the church large sums of money to fix if damaged.
This is a good example of providing security and visual aesthetics at the same time.
