Humans may slow down when passing fences.
Fences, along with other options, can be used to enclose a pen. Pen animals, wild or tame, will not be able to cross over the fence even when manhunter or being lead by a colonist. Note however that, like walls, trapped wild animals will still attempt to break down them down if starving. All other pawns can cross over the fence at will, but will be slowed down.
Predators will not hunt animals inside the pen unless they are also inside the pen at the time. Non-pen predators can move across the fence while wandering, and then target its occupants, but will not intentionally do so.
Fences provide the cheapest way to create a pen and are more accessible than walls, though the latter benefit is shared by the barricade. They are however extremely weak and can rarely enable predators to eat your farm animals. This risk of predation increases as pen sizes goes up and the chance of a predator randomly walking in gets higher.
Fences slow movement and cannot be stood on. This can be useful for slowing the enemy without providing much cover, and for blocking one side of walls, barricades or sandbags to deny their usage to the enemy. However, fences are not durable and can be easily destroyed during firefights.
