Temporary fencing – also known as mobile fencing – is necessary to secure work sites or areas where interim security measures are required.
It has to be easy to erect and take down, but should also still function as a deterrent for people with unauthorised access – just as permanent security fencing would.
As a cost-effective alternative to permanent fencing solutions, temporary fencing can be used at:
- construction sites
- sporting events
In addition to preventing unauthorised access, temporary fencing can also help to prevent sites from vandalism, aid crowd control, retain privacy – when holding an event, such as a private wedding – and can help to keep children safe.
Different types of temporary fencing
Here at CLD Fencing, we offer a wide range of temporary fencing and gate systems:
- profiled rigid mesh temporary fencing
- twin wire rigid mesh temporary fencing
- 358 rigid mesh temporary fencing
- event fencing
- site fencing
- temporary site gates
- temporary security gates
- temporary sliding gates – all temporary gates come with matching mesh infills to complete the fence line
As the UK’s largest manufacturer and supplier of rigid mesh fencing and security gates, we at CLD Fencing have joined forces with another of the biggest names in physical perimeter security, Gallagher Security – the global leader in perimeter intrusion detection systems – to launch FenceSafe-E.
Our patented FenceSafe System was the first temporary fencing system to utilise the same rigid mesh panels and posts used in the permanent fencing range, with a ‘zero-ground strike’ and offers:
- wind-rated to BS EN 1991 in excess of 100mph
- anti-trip external hazard
- 30mm projection to prevent climb over
- pin hex security fixings
- 100% recycled base
- 90% recycled UK and European steel fencing
- lower carbon footprint than hoarding systems
Combining this zero-ground strike temporary security fencing system with the full benefits of a monitored pulse fencing system, a temporary, secured perimeter fence can be rapidly deployed anywhere in the world.
Researched and developed by our in-house Design Team, our patented cantilever base enabled FenceSafe to pass a number of tests including BS EN 1991-1 – wind-loading in excess of 100mph, crowd loading and impact testing. Meaning it is one of the most safe, temporary fencing systems on the market.
The cantilever base – weighted down using loose or bagged ballast of up to 200kg – allows temporary fencing to remain in place for as long as is necessary. Complying with wind-loading standards, tubs are weighted down and manufactured from 100% recycled plastic.
Throughout development trials, fence lines of over 30m with 45°C corners, ends and 90°C returns were erected and commissioned with full pulse fencing – formerly known as electric fencing – within 90 minutes.
Standards of temporary fencing
When looking for temporary fencing solutions, you need to ensure that they conform to both British and European Standards, so you can be sure that they are fit-for-purpose.
At CLD, our innovative FenceSafe System conforms to BS EN1991 for wind loading – to ensure it doesn’t move in the wind and potentially cause injury – and is manufactured to BS 1772 Part 14 and Part 17 for crowd loading to 800N. It can be supplied and manufactured galvanised to BS EN 1SO 1461 or polyester powder-coated to BS EN 13438.
Benefitting from more than 40 years’ experience using rigid mesh panel systems and temporary fencing, we are confident that we can devise the best temporary fencing solutions to match your needs and requirements.
