Choosing the most appropriate site fencing

When choosing site fencing for a building site, an event or even a display it is important to choose one that best suites the area. In this article we will look at a some options you should consider for different events.


Site fencing for building sites


Building sites require a very robust and durable fence, in most cases the fence will not have any view holes and will be a solid wooden fence. The height of the fence should be a minimum of 2.5 metres tall for public safety. Some building site fences will have small cut outs with wire mesh approximately 12 inches square for foot traffic to view what is being built.


If the site will be active for a long period of time then a more permanent solution is required. A steel security fence with spikes and a steel security gate also known as steel palisade fencing is the way to go. This is very robust and weather resistant, although it is generally considered to be a permanent fence it can be erected and dismantled in a very short space of time.


Music and other event fencing


The type of fencing used at events such as music festivals is smaller than building site fences and gives maximum view ability. Generally a wire mesh fence is used as these are strong but also very light as the fence is only temporary.


For areas where a queue of foot traffic is likely a barrier type fence of around 1.5 meters tall is a good choice, they are very sturdy and very easily moved.











Indoor event fencing


If you are looking for fencing or barrier option for an even indoors such as a gallery then chrome steel posts with high strength rope is the most common choice. These are inexpensive and easily transported and are very durable.


If a lot of foot traffic is expected then a permanent solution is something to take into consideration. You can have the same chrome style as the free standing post and rope but fixed posts and rails. This option is more expensive but is far more stable and durable than a free standing post and rope system
