About Temporary Fencing

Temporary Fencing was first introduced to the market in the 1960s as a cost-effective and simple solution to create a temporary barrier around construction sites for safety and to prevent unauthorized access from people. Although, temporary fencing was a staple in the construction sector, recently other industries have adopted it due to its effectiveness.

Industry-standard temporary fencing is usually 3.5m wide and 2m tall. This fencing material is a frame that is constructed from a bent steel tube, covered with steel wire mesh, and welded together. However, some temporary fencing panels also have reinforced steel corner gussets for extra strength. These frames may also comprise 4 separate tubes welded together to create a rectangular temporary fencing frame.

Installation of Temporary Fencing

Our Installation Process is divided into 6 steps to ensure your temporary fencing material is properly installed and can withstand every challenge it faces. Here’s a breakdown of our steps:


1. Planning

Site Assessment: We will start our planning by assessing the site where you need to install the temporary fencing. This is important to Identify any specific requirements, such as the length of fencing needed, the terrain, and access points.

Permits and Regulations: We will ensure we check local regulations and obtain any necessary permits for installing temporary fencing. This is because we take compliance with safety rules and zoning requirements of local authorities seriously.

Temporary Fencing Panels: The next step involves acquiring the required number of temporary fencing panels based on your site’s dimensions and needs. These panels are usually made of materials like chain-link, steel, or plastic.

Base or Support System: Depending on the terrain, we may decide to add bases, weights, or supports to stabilize the fencing. The common options available include concrete blocks, sandbags, or stabilizing feet.

Bracing and Accessories: Also,  If the site or fencing requires additional stability, we will consider using bracing or accessories like wind braces or privacy screens.

Tools: All tools that we may need such as fencing clamps, nuts and bolts, a hammer, pliers, and a measuring tape will be gathered by our experts to commence the installation of temporary fencing.


3. Installation Steps

Layout: We will mark the desired locations for the fencing using stakes or chalk lines. We will also ensure the layout aligns with your site plan and any boundaries.

Assembly: We will begin by connecting the fencing panels. Most temporary fencing panels have hooks or connectors that allow for easy assembly. However, we will secure them using fencing clamps or fasteners.

Secure Bases: Our experts will place the bases or support system at regular intervals along the fence line. These will help provide stability and prevent the fence from tipping over.

Attach Panels to Bases:  Our experts will secure the bottom of the fencing panels to the bases or supports. They’ll make use of appropriate connectors or fasteners to ensure these panels stay in place.

Bracing (if necessary): If we notice that the fencing is long or will be installed in an area prone to strong winds, we may consider adding bracing for extra stability. 

Gate Installation: If your site or concert requires gate access, we will install a temporary gate within the fence line. We will make sure it functions properly and can be securely locked.

Adjustments: We will check the alignment and tension of the fencing to ensure it is secure and level. Although, we can make any necessary adjustments to maintain the integrity of the barrier.


4. Safety Precautions

To ensure that the fencing is free of sharp edges or protruding objects that could pose safety risks. We will clearly mark any uneven terrain or potential trip hazards near the fencing.
