Temporary fencing is an excellent solution for a wide range of needs, from construction sites to outdoor events. It’s flexible and easy to install and customized for your specific requirements. You want your fencing to provide the level of protection and security you need. So, you must prepare your site properly for installation.
In this blog, we’ll take a look at some of the critical steps to get ready for your temporary fencing.
Define the Boundaries of Your Site
The first step in preparing for temporary fencing is to determine the boundaries of the area you need to fence off. Knowing your site’s measurements will help you determine the amount of fencing you’ll need and the size and shape of the fencing panels you’ll need to use. A Texas Johns expert can help you figure those things out when you get your quote.
Clear the Site of Debris
Once you understand the boundaries of your site, it’s essential to clear the area of any debris or obstacles that could impede your installation. This might include rocks, tree stumps, or other items that will get in the way of the fence panels. Clearing the site will also help ensure our professionals can install your fencing securely and safely.
Level the Ground
To install your fencing securely, you must ensure the ground is level. Level, sturdy ground will help to prevent the fence panels from shifting or tipping over, which could compromise the security of your event or site. If necessary, you may need a bulldozer or other heavy equipment to level the surface before installing the fence.
Install Post Supports
Next, you’ll need to install post supports to hold the fence panels in place. After all, you can’t have your temporary fencing blowing away in the wind.
Depending on your site’s specific needs, you can install sturdy support for your temporary fencing using concrete anchors, steel stakes, or other types of supports. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to ensure you install the supports correctly and securely.
Install the Fence Panels
With the post supports in place, you can begin installing the fence panels. Be sure to choose panels appropriate for your site’s specific needs.
Whether you need high-security fencing, privacy fencing, or a pen to hold items during your event, you’ll want fencing with the perfect height and functionality (i.e. reduction screens) to fit your needs.
Add Gates and Other Accessories
Lighting along the fences in restroom areas is a great quiet signal that leads your guests where they need to be.
You may also add gates or other accessories to your temporary fencing to provide access to your site or enhance its security. These can include gate panels to get through easily and lockable gate latches for added convenience and security.
You might even monitor the area to ensure your backstage and talent are protected with CCTV cameras.
