Learn all of the uses of a temporary fence.

When thinking about fences, people usually picture a traditional home with a white picket fence, or maybe a fence around an animal enclosure on a farm. Fences pop up in more places than you would expect given the purposes they serve. The structures people usually assume are fences are permanent ones traditionally used for homes, ranches, companies, parks, and permanent establishments. Temporary fencing is less known and less talked about; however, it can be beneficial in some different situations. Temporary fencing can be utilized in instances where it needs to be put up and taken down quickly. Here are some situations in which temporary fencing could solve a lot of your problems.

Construction Sites

If you are pursuing a construction project, you are definitely going to need some temporary fencing. Obviously, you need to keep members of the public out of your project and potentially out of harm’s way, so there must be a boundary that denies any person entry who is not already permitted to be there. There are several options for your on-site construction fencing needs, and you can pick the one that is best for your project. Bright orange plastic netting is most popular, as it keeps people out and signals to passersby that there is construction being done in the area. Black rubber tarps attached to wooden poles are also an option if you would rather not have people see the project you are working on. Either way, there is a solution for your next construction project.

Outdoor Events

Concerts, sports games, festivals, weddings, movie filming, markets: the list goes on and on when naming different kinds of outdoor events. Whatever your next outdoor endeavor is, chances are you are going to need some temporary fencing for public security and crowd control. Here, metal piping sectional fences are most popular because they are lightweight, portable, and uniform in appearance. They can even be used for more formal events if you dress them up a little bit.


You may not think that temporary fencing can be used indoors, but if you have babies or house pets, they can be a lifesaver. Place them at the top or the bottom of stairs to prevent the little ones from going where they are not supposed to or to save them from falling preemptively. You can also place them around your backyard pool, giving you peace of mind in those warmer months when you live outdoors and indoors. These fences can be made of wood, metal, or plastic and can be easily installed and taken down.
