Temporary fences are a simple form of self-standing, self-reinforcing fencing that can be used to protect swimming pools, playgrounds, tennis courts, horse trails, parking lots, industrial areas, cattle farms, golf courses, schools and any other area that needs to be protected from the elements. A popular form of temporary fencing for commercial and industrial uses is welded steel edge protection barriers. These fences are strong, durable and versatile and can be custom built to meet your exact specifications. In addition, you can buy or rent these fences, which can be used for any number of purposes. The following article discusses the many reasons why you might need to use temporary fences on your property. If you have not considered using fences to partition off an area on your property, here are some of the reasons why you should:
If you work at a construction site on a daily basis, the last thing you want is to have your head, neck or spine injured from falling on a wet, slippery floor. If you are standing on cement, concrete or asphalt when you fall, you could easily suffer a serious injury. For this reason, many construction site fences are made from heavy-duty steel that is at least six feet tall, and also have reinforcing ribs in place to ensure that the fence stays in place during windy conditions. On a hot summer day, no matter how safe the ground may seem, you will want to stay a few feet away from any open water, which could lead to slip and fall accidents. If you have these types of temporary fences around your construction site, then you will know that there is plenty of space to avoid danger.
In addition to providing safety on construction sites, temporary fences can also provide a temporary solution for gardens and public lawns. Fences are commonly used for this purpose because they do not require the upkeep and staining that permanent fences would require. You simply cut and trim the grass and shrubs that you want to enclose and then set the fence up, and then walk on through. There are several styles to choose from and they are extremely affordable and easy to install – sometimes even a child can do it! They are popular for all sorts of outdoor areas including tennis courts, in-ground pools and even around swimming pools.
