A Fence is a barrier separating two properties, fields, or other areas.

Fences can be both to keep humans and/or animals in or out of an area, or simply to mark a boundary. Border fences mark national boundaries in addition to enhancing a nation's security.

Electric fences are electrified wires used to keep livestock in a given area. They may be either temporary or attached to permanent fences.

The world's longest fence is the 5,400 km Dog Fence or Dingo Fence in Australia.[1]
