In certain situations, you need a sturdy, reliable fence but only for a limited time. Crowd management, construction, property security: all of these are likely to require temporary fencing. Installing temporary fences that stand up to intrusions requires some important knowledge. This post will break down how to install temporary fencing panels properly and safely.
Map It Out
Before anything goes down, you need to mark where the fence panels should go to block off your site from the public. Walk the space and consider how people should flow around your project or event without disrupting it. If you’re located near a busy street, make sure that the area around the fence has a safe walkway.
Temporary Fencing Base
The first pieces of equipment to go down are the fence bases. These will keep everything steady. Follow the directions that come with your temporary fencing panels. Measure out the length of each panel, and put the bases down with enough room between them.
Putting Up Panels
The next step is to install the fencing panels. Depending on how tall and heavy these are, they may require one person or several to lift and place. After placing a panel down into the corresponding bases, make sure that it is securely fastened to prevent any mishaps later on.
Installing the Caps
Once stuck in the bases, the fence panels need to be fastened to one another. Usually, your temporary fencing will come with clamps or some other fastening devices that should be easy to attach.
Signage and Accessories
Only after the structure of the temporary fencing has been secured can you post your signage, put up privacy screens, add extension panels, and attach whatever other necessary pieces. As you attach these things, be careful not to damage the overall structure of the fence.
