Best Uses For Temporary Fences

Temporary fences are a great option for many situations and events since they are so easy to install, arrange, and remove. These fences are made up of chain link panels that are supported by feet and braces. Whereas traditional, permanent fencing is installed directly into the ground using fence posts, temporary fences are simply attached to one another by couplers and sit atop the ground. This makes them much more customizable than traditional fencing, meeting a variety of needs for many different types of situations. Here are just a few of the best uses for temporary fences.

Construction Sites

Construction sites commonly use temporary fences as a safety measure, both for crews and for the public. You will often see temporary fences lining the bounds of a construction site or running along a road to prevent use of a road or sidewalk that is currently under construction. Not only does this keep the public safe, it also sets clear boundaries for the use of construction equipment and allows construction crews to adhere to safety regulations on the job site.


Temporary fences are also frequently used for large residential projects. When remodeling your home’s exterior or adding an addition, temporary fences can help you set boundaries to keep yourself, as well as your neighbors, a safe distance from uneven ground, falling objects, or heavy duty equipment. Temporary fences may also be used for large landscaping projects, especially when they involve heavy duty professional landscaping equipment. This can prevent stirring up large piles of dirt, rocks, or other debris you may use in your landscaping and remodeling.

Community Events

You’re sure to spot a temporary fence at a fair, outdoor concert, or even parade. Community events often use these fences to establish line areas or keep pedestrians from entering the road. This helps to keep large crowds moving in an orderly fashion while making admission easier for event organizers. These are also a good security measure to prevent non-ticketholders from entering an event.

Private Events

Many private events, including weddings, make use of temporary fences as well. Temporary fencing is a great way to keep traffic or pedestrians from entering a reserved area for a private event. This is also important for keeping guests within a certain area, which can be important at a wedding where alcohol is being served to guide guests to restrooms and prevent them from wandering. With the increasing popularity of outdoor wedding receptions, many wedding planners and venue owners have come to rely on temporary fences to make sure their events go off without a hitch.
