No, this is not one of our fences

GHL Temp Fence often gets asked these two questions –

1. Do we really need fence bracing?

2. Do you have a lighter foot that we can use?

I think the two photos below answers these questions concisely!

During my travels the other day I spotted this temporary fence that had fallen over during what I’d describe as the first of a wet windy Winters Day. This temp fence was lying flat on the ground covering a driveway.

Why did this temp fence fall over and cause a safety breach on this construction site?

There was no bracing attached at regular intervals to prevent the fence from falling down and the concrete feet were not heavy enough to support the weight of a fence that is not secured to a solid fixture.

A temporary fence itself is unstable because of its weight and the fact that it is not secured to anything. The bracing adds to the stability of the fence to prevent it falling over and the concrete feet add weight to ground the fence. Using both of these accessories will ensure your fence is safe and secure.
