Temporary Fencing

Temporary Fencing

Temporary fencing is used in a wide range of applications, from construction site demarcation to crowd control at events, it is important to select the products that are best suited to the task at hand.

Types of Temporary Fencing

Temporary fencing in the UK is available in two common types; Square-Top (ST) and Round-Top (RT).

Square-Top temporary fencing panels are the ‘standard’ panels. Their frames are made from four metal tubes that have been welded together creating the square shaped top. As welded points are a natural weakness, corner plates are often added to reinforce the frame.

Round-Top temporary fencing panels also get their name from the shape of the frame. Round-Top panels use only two tubes to create the frame as opposed to four, with the tubes being bent to create the distinctive ’round-top’. This improves the robustness of the frame as welded joins are a natural weak point.

Types of Mesh

Most temporary fencing panels in the UK use welded wire mesh. Generally welded to the frame at every point, a welded wire mesh temporary fencing panel is more secure and durable than chain-link options that are common in other markets. Welded wire mesh comes in two types; Standard and Anti-Climb.

Standard mesh is suitable for many applications of temporary fencing, however the wide aperture of the mesh makes it easier for a person to gain a purchase and scale the panel. If security is of particular concern, it is advised to look at the Anti-Climb varient.

As the name suggests, Anti-Climb mesh is more resistent to being scaled, the narrower aperture of the mesh making it difficult for a person to grip or gain a foothold effectively.

Stabilisers

Wind is the persistent enemy of temporary fencing installations. One incorrectly secured panel can cause a cascade effect that will bring down an entire installation, damaging equipment, property and potentially causing injury or worse. It is therefore vital that any installation is supported with the appropriate stabilising equipment for the expected wind conditions.

ZND have developed a range of stabiliser systems that will help ensure a safe and effective installation, and our Wind Speed Calculator allows customers to measure wind loading performance of a given temporary fencing configuration.

Accessories

Gates, customised covers, reflective strips, fencing extensions and other accessories are all available to help provide a more effective solution.

Powder Coating

Standard temporary fencing panels provide very effective demarcation, but bare steel is not the right look for every situation. Powder coating temporary fencing can create a far more appealing environment for customers and the general public, in addition to providing additional protection against the elements for the products themselves.

Storage & Transport

Storing and transporting temporary fencing panels can be quite a task, one option is to use a dedicated stillage. Stillage units protect inventory, speed up un/loading times, and are stackable so allow for more efficient use of storage space.
