Applications of Temporary Fencing

1. Construction Sites: Temporary fences are a must-have around construction areas. They keep people safe by blocking off dangerous spots and keeping equipment and building materials secure.

2. Events: At big events like concerts or sports games, these fences help manage the crowd. They guide people where to go and keep private areas off-limits.

3. Public Safety: During emergencies or road work, temporary fences are quick to set up and protect people from hazards.

4. Home Use: If you're remodeling your home or building a pool, a temporary fence keeps the area safe and private.

5. Commercial Spaces: Stores and businesses use temporary fences when they need to do work on their property without closing down.

Benefits of Temporary Fencing

Keeps People Safe: These fences are great at stopping people from walking into areas where they could get hurt.

Stops Trespassing: Temporary fences make a clear boundary that tells people not to enter your space without permission.

Flexible for Different Needs: You can put up as much or as little fencing as you need, and arrange it in whatever shape works best.

Cost-Effective: Using temporary fencing is much cheaper than building a permanent fence, especially when you only need it for a short time.

Types of Temporary Fencing in the USA

Temporary Chain Link Fencing: This is a strong fence that people often use to quickly make a boundary. It's also called a portable or construction fence. This fence has bases that let it stand on its own and you can move it wherever you need it. It's really handy because you can set it up on different types of ground like dirt, stones, blacktop, and cement, all without digging holes. This saves you a lot of hard work. People use this fence to keep places safe and make sure only the right people can get in. You're likely to see chain link fences at places like construction sites, homes, schools, big events like sports or concerts, around pools, and anywhere a lot of people gather or need to line up properly.

Temporary Fencing Bases:

These are plastic stands for temporary fences, made from a strong type of plastic called polypropylene. You can pick from colors like orange, red, blue, or yellow. They have holes to fit fence posts of sizes 32mm, 40mm, or 60mm. The bases come in three sizes: 560x245x130mm, 600x220x150mm, and 600x220x100mm.

Temporary Fencing Clamps:

These are strong clamps used to keep temporary fence panels together. They can handle a lot of pressure without letting go. The clamps are dipped in hot zinc to make them tough and rust-resistant, following the standards set in Australia.

Temporary Fencing Braces:

These are the support rods that keep the fence panels upright and steady. Usually, you would use one brace for every three to five panels. Each brace needs one clamp to connect it and one to three bases to stand on. The diameter of the brace is the same as the diameter of the fence frame it's supporting.

Comparison of Temporary Fencing Styles

Materials Used:

  • In America, people like using round pipes with chain link patterns for their temporary fences.
  • Canadians go for square pipes with wire mesh welded right onto them.
  • Australians prefer round pipes that are welded to a wire mesh too.

Safety Standards:

  • Every country has its own rules for making sure fences are safe and well-made. For example, in Australia, temporary fences usually follow a specific rule called AS 4687-2007.

Making It Your Own:

  • In Australia, you can get your temporary fences made just the way you want them, with your own colors and logos, and they can be made to fit exactly where you need them. In the USA and Canada, fences are usually more one-size-fits-all.
