What Is Temporary Fencing And Why Is It Temporary Fencing

If you don't have the proper boundaries in place, you could find yourself legally responsible for an accident or injury. That's why temporary fencing is vital to ensure the safety of your space.

Read on to find out what temporary fencing is and why you need it!

What is temporary fencing?

Temporary fencing is a fence used to protect an area.

While permanent fencing can be used for safety and security, temporary fencing is ideal for people who need a more flexible fencing option. Temporary fencing can also be referred to as 'mobile fencing'.

Metal fencing systems are a popular way to secure an area, but there are some differences between temporary and permanent metal fencing. Permanent fencing is very strong and once installed is very difficult to move.

If you feel the need to move your fence shortly after installation, then permanent fencing may not be for you. Many people prefer temporary fencing as it is durable but can be moved if necessary.

Temporary fencing can be moved over and over again while remaining intact. Temporary fencing has become widely known over the past few years.

What applications can you use temporary fencing for?

There are many reasons why you may need to move your fence frequently. Let's look at some of the common ones.

Construction sites

Construction sites are one of the most common places where the temporary fence is used.

As construction sites can be dangerous for passers-by, it is important to have some sort of boundary. Temporary fencing is perfect for construction sites as it is only needed until construction is complete.

When temporary fencing is used on a construction site, it is referred to as "construction fencing".

You may have seen the bright orange mesh fence around construction sites. It is attached to a metal spike and is designed to be secured around the entire construction site. In addition to the more popular bright orange fencing, black rubber tarpaulins are also commonly used on construction sites.

The tarpaulin is attached to wooden stakes on wooden stakes. The tarpaulin covers the entire work area.

Outdoor activities

Another common use for temporary fencing is at outdoor events.

There are many events that require temporary fencing. Concerts use temporary fencing to ensure that no one sneaks in without buying a ticket. As well as keeping all unpaid guests out, these fences are also used for crowd control.

Temporary fencing between the crowd and the stage is vital for the safety of the performers.

Temporary fences are also used for sporting events, government events, weddings, films (remember the red velvet ropes?) and film sets. Basically, any place where the public needs to be separated from an event in progress requires temporary fencing.

Pet enclosures

There are also temporary enclosures that can accommodate pets very well.

While a permanent fence is preferred for a fenced backyard, there are many options for temporary fencing. There are fences that form a circle, square, or rectangle that confine your pets to a small area.

These fences are very useful for keeping puppies from running rampant.

Or, if you don't have an enclosed yard at home, you can connect several of these small fences together. This way your pets can have time to play outside without having to worry about them running off!

Baby gate.

If you are a parent of a child you will know that you cannot take your eyes off them for more than a second. Babies and toddlers are known to like to go anywhere they can, which is why a safety fence or 'baby gate' is necessary.

Baby gates are considered temporary fences because they can be set up and moved around the house. Hanging out in the living room? You can set up a baby gate at the entrance and keep them inside.

Need to keep them in the playroom but do you need to see them? A baby gate is perfect for this. Temporary enclosures for children can be set up for longer periods of time or moved daily to suit your needs.

Longer-term baby gates usually have a gate with a child lock that allows you to get in and out of the room.
