Bracing and support stays essential to protect against the weather

Share on

Unpredictable weather and high wind prone construction sites means considering extra stability when hiring and erecting temporary fencing around the site.

A temp fence is usually not secured to a solid structure because by its very nature it is temporary, and it can easily be knocked over by high winds and pelting storms. Add a privacy shade cloth to the fence and it becomes even more unstable during these adverse weather conditions.

Here are three things that every temporary fence should include to maintain stability –

Concrete feet

Concrete filled feet are placed on the bases of the panels at certain intervals and act like a stabiliser to secure the fence to the ground. The extra weight helps steady each of the panels.


Bracing is used on the temp fence at intervals along the fence that are particularly unstable such as uneven ground, soft ground cover and sections where there is an opening gate.

Interlocking panels

By interlocking each of the panels to each other, adds another element of stability to the fence against high winds and adverse weather conditions.

The weather is unpredictable, but your temporary fence can be predictable for safety around every construction site, using the GHL Temp Fence products and accessories.
