Fencing around a construction site is very important for a number of reasons. It keeps the project and the workers on the site safe from trespassers, interruptions, and other inconveniences, and it prevents passersby from accidentally entering the site and being hurt by equipment or falling materials. If you are interested in learning more about construction fencing, we’ve got the answers for you!
The thing that makes construction fencing different from other types is that, unlike your traditional ornamental or functional fence, it is temporary rather than permanent. Because of this, you will need to consider how much time, cost, and effort will be involved in setup and break down, as well as whether the fence will be sturdy enough to fit your needs.
Since traditional materials like wood and vinyl are both too time-consuming to place and too weak to perform this kind of job, most construction companies choose to instead use a chain link fence. Chain link is the ideal option for several reasons. It is strong enough to resist any tampering that may occur. It’s tall and difficult to climb. It is extremely affordable and easy to set up and remove.
By placing a chain link fence around the perimeter of your construction site, you can ensure that both the job itself and the workers on the site will be kept safe. Furthermore, you can also be positive that any accidents involving civilians will be avoided. And with the time and money you’ll save by choosing chain link, you’ll feel good about the decision you’ve made.
Do you like the idea of a chain link fence, but fear that it won’t give you the privacy you need? You’re in luck– opaque screens can be used to cover fence panels, making it difficult or impossible for those outside to see into the fence. These screens provide you with the privacy of a more traditional fence while allowing you to still use the cheaper and sturdier material of chain link.

Widely popular and commonly used to create a temporary barrier while work is in progress, heras fencing is a good option for short to medium term projects. One of the main benefits of this type of fencing is its low weight, which provides a system that’s easy to transport and deploy wherever it’s required.
For construction sites this type of fencing comes in an anti-climb variety; eliminating any footholds or areas where it might be easy for a potential intruder to gain access to the site. This type of heras fencing is available for purchase or hire, which allows a cost effective decision to be made based on the time requirement for these fencing panels.
