Temporary Fencing

A range of options

Temporary fencing is a necessary way to keep sites secure and the public safe.  Different situations will require different things from a temporary fence and to this end there is a range of options.

Chain Link
Often contracts require chain link fencing as a temporary demarcation.  Because of the variety of chain link and methods of erection this can be an inexpensive alternative (see chain link).

Easy application of paint makes this an ideal fence type for high profile projects and contracts in the public eye.  Constructed using timber posts, and rails nailed to posts, ply boards are nailed to the rails giving a solid screen face, ideal for painting – even murals (but not by us – no artists here!).  Kick boards and cover strips will add to the overall lifespan of the fencing, especially when constructed in high pedestrian or vehicle traffic areas.

Temporary Fence Panels
These panels are 3.5m long x 2m high with tubular frame construction and welded mesh infill.  The panels are placed in concrete or rubber ‘shoes’ and connected together using couplings operable only with a spanner – quick and easy to erect.

Chestnut Pale
Available in heights 0.9 / 1.2 / 1.35 / 1.5 / 1.8m.  Usually erected on round timber stakes driven into the ground at 3m centres.  A quick and cheap form of perimeter fencing but the lower heights will make for relatively easy access to sites. Occasionally this is specified for erection on a scaffold frame – but this will increase the price

Post and Wire
A very cheap form of temporary demarcation.  Timber posts driven into the ground at 3m centres and any number of line wires stapled to the posts will make this very quick and easy to erect.  Alternative types of wire can be added, i.e., barbed wire, stock netting, wire netting.
