Different types of fence

Posted by William Woods on April 17th, 2018

Securing a construction site is a common-sense business practice that some otherwise sensible project managers skip. It's a hassle to install and remove, they say. It takes too long to install and remove, and it doesn't make sense to keep all the materials for fencing on hand. In a way, that's the truth. However the advantages outweigh the hassles. There are a lot of reasons why a savvy project manager will look at Paso Robles fence rental companies as a part of preparing a site for construction.

Different Projects and Different Fences

Fences are not a one-size solution, and each job site has its challenges. For an all-new building project, fencing may need to be versatile as the site goes through different stages from leveling and grading up to finish work on individual homes. For renovation projects, simple fence panels used to surround the site can also be fitted with privacy measures that keep prying eyes away from a family's home and the materials used in the renovation. What type of fences are best? Let's have a look.

1. Post-Driven Chain Link: Post holes are dug 24 inches below grade, the fence posts are set 10 feet apart, then concrete poured into holes and allowed to harden. This kind of chain link fencing is the most durable type of fencing, and very difficult for thieves to breach. Ideally, the perimeter fence should be about 8 feet high, and may also be topped with a top rail and barbed or razor wire coils.

2. Freestanding Chain Link Panels: When needs change on the fly, portable panels may be moved as needed. These panels are NOT secured, and with privacy measures such as screening in place can blow over when those Santa Ana winds kick up. Gravel bags, concrete weights, or sandbags on the flange plates help to keep the fence stabilized.

3. Temporary Pool Fencing: When constructing or renovating swimming pools it's important to maintain access while keeping the mis-adventuring skateboarder and other trespassers out. A temporary California-compliant fence is a great way to keep all but authorized personnel out.

4. Custom Temporary Fencing: Everyone has different needs, and some projects mean going the extra mile. Working with a Paso Robles fence rental company doesn't mean settling for a one-size solution that doesn't fit the job's needs. Custom fencing for rent should be a specialty on every project manager's list.

Access control via a sliding or swinging gate adds an extra measure of security, while privacy measures such as fence slatting, cloth wraps, or even custom printed banners keep prying eyes out.

Stop Loss and Trespassers

Securing a job site is a practical consideration that not only safeguards materials and equipment but makes sure that casual thrill seekers have to go to extreme measures to enter the site. Since the company holding the liability policy can end up holding the bag for any injuries sustained on site, getting fencing in place may also be a way to cut down on insurance premiums.
