In some cases, permanent fencing may not be an appropriate solution. You may still be seeking the benefits of fencing, however, such as safety and access control. This is where you may start to think about temporary fencing, an ideal perimeter solution for all kinds of situations, including large events, animal-containment, demolition or construction projects, and disaster relief scenarios. There are a variety of temporary fencing options that all boil down to serving a specific need or requirement, so if you’re in the early stages of looking for temporary fencing, you’re in the right place as we’re going to cover the basics of each major type.
Barricade fencing constructed out of either metal or plastic can be a great way to create a temporary barrier. They are totally portable, allowing for an infinite number of combinations and configurations to suit your specific scenario while still regulating access and foot traffic. That said, plastic barricades will be much easier to deploy and are typically constructed with a high-density polyethylene that is strong and durable. You can even lock segments together to help create stability. On the other hand, steel is an even stronger option that will be harder to deploy. Lastly, concrete can be used if you’re concerned about vehicles.
Mesh and Pole Fences
If you need something somewhat niche like pool fencing, you may want to think about mesh and pole fences. This temporary solution can offer an extra layer of security without requiring drilling. It’s one of the easiest forms of fencing out there and requires very little in terms of installation. Here’s how it works: base blocks are filled with either sand or water. Then, fence poles are put into those blocks which are also interconnected themselves. Mesh panels can then be added between each fence pole, creating a quick-but-sturdy temporary fencing solution.
Nylon Mono-Filament Options
This is a fancy way to describe what are essentially nylon wires that can easily be installed to create temporary fencing. This option is lighter than steel wiring but still offers similar benefits like durability and strength, making it a good choice when you need to get a fence in place quickly. It’s often used to control animals—whether that means preventing invasive animals out or keeping domesticated animals in.
