Temporary Fencing FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right temporary fence for your job

1. What is temporary fencing?

Temporary fence panels are used all across the world in commercial and residential construction projects to surround sensitive sites, security facilities, warehouses, parking lots, special outdoor events, and emergency and disaster relief areas.

The most obvious benefit of installing temporary fencing is the convenience, flexibility and ease over other forms of more permanent fencing. Temporary fencing suppliers erect these structures fairly quickly and can take them down just as easily, depending on the area to be covered.

Temporary fence panels can be reinforced and strengthened by adding accessories like gates, handrails, feet and bracing. They can even include barbed wire as an additional security measure. Temporary fencing prices are also quite affordable, depending on the types of additions and amount of chain link or weld mesh used. They can provide a lot of protection and durability, separating the general public for crowd control or keeping them safe from dangerous machinery.


2. How much does it cost to hire temporary fencing?

Temporary fencing hire rates are highly reasonable across the board. Therefore, you should be looking for temporary fence companies with a consistent rating of quality application and customer service. High ratings in these areas will give you certainty that the installation is secure and durable. You can always look forward to your contractor working to correct any errors that arise.

With this being said, temporary fencing prices range from $7 to $10 per metre, which works out to about $500 for 50 metres. This is for short-term hire where you’re essentially paying to rent the temporary fencing for the week.

However, the costs go down significantly if your project runs for more than a week. For example, temporary fencing hire rates for the same amount of fencing is $900 for a 12-month hire.

Besides labour costs, which remain the same for all installations, temporary fencing companies earn additional fees from:

  • Delivery and pick-up
  • Replacement of any damaged temporary fence panels
  • Damage waiver
  • Cleaning and relocation fees
  • Administrative costs

3. When to use temporary fencing?

Temporary fence panels can be used in a variety of use cases. Temporary fencing is designed for both commercial and residential projects, including short-term crowd control and long-term protection.

Other popular temporary fencing services include:

  • Building, development, demolition and construction projects
  • Mining and resource projects
  • Civil infrastructure and public works projects
  • Sporting events
  • Outdoor concerts and entertainment
  • Fencing hire and resellers
  • Agricultural fencing

4. How do you install temporary fencing?

Temporary fencing companies can help you install these panels quickly and easily across a large stretch of area in a variety of conditions. The general temporary fence process works as follows:

  • The first step is for contractors to perform a site inspection. This is to conduct an assessment of the land and weather conditions, as well as ensure the area is cleared of debris.
  • Next, contractors will begin to set the bases of the temporary fence panels into position. The bases have holes that the panels are placed and locked into.
  • From here, contractors will begin to lay the temporary fence panels, piece by piece, metre by metre, using temporary fencing clamps to connect them together. The clamp uses a nut and bolt to fasten the fences together.
  • Once the designated area has been completely surrounded by temporary fence panels, contractors will use safety stays that anchor the fence in place. Brackets laid against the fence hold it up against the wind and stop it from toppling over. Depending on the site conditions, contractors may also weigh down the safety stays with concrete blocks or sandbags.
  • When surrounding a construction site, local public councils require temporary fencing companies to wrap the fence. This stops any residual debris and dust from entering the public space.

5. What is the purpose of temporary fencing around construction sites?

Temporary fencing that is positioned around construction sites serve a dual purpose — they stop dirt, debris, and other hazardous construction materials from being in direct contact with civilians. They also keep the site workers safe from trespassers who either accidentally or intentionally wander onto a construction site.

Some types of temporary fencing also come with opaque screens to stop others from looking in. You can also opt for ‘anti-climb’ mesh designs for your temporary fencing installation.
