Safety and security are paramount when managing a property, event, or construction site. In many situations, a permanent fence might not be feasible or necessary. This is where temporary fencing comes into play. Ideal for a variety of applications, temporary fences offer flexibility, security, and peace of mind. In this guide, we’ll delve into the world of temporary fencing, highlighting its use cases, features, advantages, benefits, types, and alternative names.

Temporary Fencing Use Case

  • Construction Sites: To protect the public from potential hazards and deter unauthorised access.
  • Outdoor Events: Festivals, concerts, and sports events often require delineated spaces or controlled access points.
  • Agricultural Fields: For seasonal livestock control or crop protection.
  • Home Renovations: Protecting property and ensuring the safety of both workers and the public.
  • Crowd Control: During public gatherings, demonstrations, or parades.
  • Emergency Scenes: Providing a secure perimeter around accident or disaster sites.
  • Land Protection: To prevent trespassing or illegal dumping on vacant lands.

Common Types of Temporary Fencing

  • Mesh Fencing Panels: These are common for construction sites due to their durability and visibility.
  • Chain Link Fencing: Often used for longer-term installations because of their strength.
  • Picket Fencing: Ideal for events or locations needing a more aesthetic appeal.
  • Barricades: Best for crowd control or directing foot traffic.
  • Plastic Barriers: Lightweight and often used for short-term events or roadworks.
