A temporary fence defines the parameters of a particular piece of property while simultaneously serving as a visible safety and security instrument. It is possible to obtain a cost effective means of creating a safer and more secure designated area in a variety of temporary environments and situations by installing a temporary fence.
The construction industry benefits greatly from the installation of temporary fences at construction sites. Many municipalities within various levels of government in some areas require fencing for particular types of construction jobs, therefore making temporary fencing a cost of doing business. However, whether law enforcement mandates the use of a fencing of not at a particular construction site, the benefits provided to the particular construction company make temporary fencing a smart addition to the job. These fences serve to protect the construction workers, the public, onsite equipment and miscellaneous onsite inventory. In the construction industry, the installation of a temporary fencing can greatly reduce the amount of insurance claims incurred by the business due to damages and accidents that are a direct result of unclear or undefined job site parameters. Temporary fencing can be fairly easily transported from job site to job site and is relatively easy to install. Because the fencing is not permanent, there is no complicated installation requiring digging or drilling.
A temporary fence is also often used to set appropriate boundaries and assist in crowd control efforts at events such as parades, festivals, concerts and sporting events. Large groups of people often need and appreciate the guidance of fencing in order to successfully maneuver through various areas in order to reach their intended or assigned individual destination at the particular event. Those who sponsor such events have found that temporary fencing streamlines their guest arrival and admission process. A properly designed temporary fencing solution supports the best use of available space and generally allows for a greater quantity of guests to occupy the same space, which can lead to increased attendance.
Emergency personnel, government authorities and those in law enforcement also often benefit tremendously from the use of a temporary fence at a variety of emergency sites. Temporary fencing has proven to be instrumental in its abilities to help protect evidence, deter unauthorized personnel and temporarily create the secure and restricted working environment that emergency personnel and authorities require in order to respond and react appropriately to the situation at hand.
There are two primary types of temporary fences, though both are designed in a similar manner. Traditional temporary fencing is basically made of rolls of chain link or chain link panels, both with heavy bases. The more technologically and scientifically advanced option is constructed of wire mesh panels that install into simply designed, yet secure, lighter weight bases that are designed to accommodate accessories such as wheels and weights and adapt to various types of ground area much better than chain link bases.
Mesh panel fences are available in an assortment of high visibility colors making them much more noticeable and intimidating, both night and day, than standard silver chain link panels. Wire mesh panels are also less susceptible to experience the distortions and discolorations caused by elements, both natural and man-made, that chain link panels typically display. A temporary fence constructed of wire mesh also has several other unique features that make them a better solution and overall better value than traditional chain link temporary fences. Wire mesh weighs much less than chain link and therefore can easily be transported and set up by just one person. Wire mesh fence panels have no sharp edges due to their manufacturing and welding process, unlike chain link panels which can often cause injury to workers, In addition, the sharp edges found on chain link temporary fencing often become entangled during loading and unloading, making the entire set up and break down process much more time consuming and costly.
