White picket fences may be beautiful, but they’re far from ideal for many uses. When it comes to many commercial, industrial or residential projects, temporary fencing is often the best choice.

You should use a portable fence when you need fencing options that are versatile, durable, cost effective and safe. Portable fencing is often used in construction projects and for crowd control at events, and it has many other uses as well.

Keep reading to see if a portable fence is right for your project.

What Is A Portable Fence?

Portable fences are freestanding fences that come in a variety of widths and heights, depending on your needs. Don’t be fooled: these fences may be temporary and portable, but when sourced properly, they’re also incredibly stable and durable.

For example, FenceLine offers heavy-duty steel fence panels that are hot-dipped with a galvanized finish, and they are built on a square tube frame with a welded wire mesh. They’re portable, and also able to stand up to extreme working conditions.

Portable fences also often make use of accessories like man gates, vehicle gates, pedestrian barriers, security clamps and privacy screening.

When & Why To Use A Portable Fence

There are many times when having a portable fence installed is a good choice. Overall, there are four popular reasons to use a temporary fence:

1. For Commercial Construction

Construction and demolition sites must be kept safe and secure at all times, making fencing a necessity. Given the cost and energy-savings they offer, temporary fences make great choices for most of these types of projects.

Moreover, when you work with FenceLine on your commercial project fencing, you have options to equip your fence with additional safety projects and security accessories.

2. For Home Construction

Just like with industrial projects, residential projects need to be kept safe and secure – whether that’s building a new home, renovating your current home, redoing your yard or installing a pool.

Remember that security clamps and privacy screening can add extra privacy to more sensitive projects.

3. For Public Events and Crowd Control

Crowd control has never been more important. Portable fences are a cost-effective and easy way to manage crowds safely. Trust us: your guests will thank you when you have systems in place to keep traffic flowing and any confusion to a minimum.

And during this time when restaurants are changing how they do business, portable fences can be used to create new and cost-effective outdoor sitting areas.

4. For Pets and Animals

Humans aren’t the only ones who can benefit from a great portable fence. If you don’t have a fenced-in yard, if you have safety concerns, or if you just don’t want to give your pet full reign in your yard, then you can use a portable fence to create a custom dog or cat run, kennel or enclosure.

Renting temporary fences make great choices for containing your pets during limited times, like when you’re renovating. We also sell new and used fence panels, depending on your budget, so that you can make a permanent space for Fido, too.

Top Reasons To Choose A Portable Fence

So that’s when you should consider a portable fence. And the reasons why you should choose a portable fence are simple.

First, portable fences are versatile. They’re sturdy and durable for even extreme conditions, but they can also be easily moved and stored. Because they are modular and come in a variety of widths and heights, they’re also easy to customize.

Second, portable fences offer safety and durability. There will always be projects that require the safety of a fence, but of course permanent fences aren’t always feasible. Portable fences can keep you and your team safe and secure on a variety of projects.

Third, portable fences are cost-effective. Again, many projects require fencing, but paying for permanent fencing is often not necessary.

Finally, portable fences are incredibly easy to use. Not only are they user-friendly, but our team can also deliver and set it up for you if you prefer.

Where Can Temporary Fence be Installed?

Temporary fence can be installed on virtually any surface. We’ve safely installed temporary fence on rock, dirt, mud, grass, asphalt and concrete. The only challenge when it comes to installing temporary fence is surface pitch. Ideally you want to have as flat and stable a surface as possible. The steeper the grade, the more complex and unsafe an installation becomes.

What lengths and heights of fence does FenceLine carry?

All our fence panels come in 10ft lengths. We offer three unique heights at 4ft, 6ft and 8ft. We also offer gating systems, fabric scrim, and various safety and security accessories. Our broad range of fencing options, safety products and security accessories ensure you get a customized and comprehensive site containment solution to suit the unique needs of your project or job site.

Can I pick up the fence myself?

Yes, if you prefer you can pick up the fence yourself. Fence alway fits best in an enclosed trailer, or flat deck trailer at least 10’ long. The fence will fit in a 6’ long truck box, but is NOT recommended.
