San Antonio Fencing Security for Your Site
Although putting a perimeter around your construction site, remodel, or large-scale event probably feels like just one among many other details, it is nonetheless essential. Although many people assume that “a fence is just a fence,” there are various types of temporary fencing that are suited to different environments and scenarios. Aqua Blu offers many options for chain link fencing, and here we’ll give you an outline of your basic options and why they are important.
The Benefits of Fencing
The most obvious function of a fence is, of course, to keep out unwanted intruders. But it is important to realize from the outset that temporary fencing is never designed nor intended to provide absolute security. Even with barbed wire or an angled top, chain link fencing offers no guarantee against someone really determined to get in. That being said, even the simplest chain link panels are enough to deter the vast majority of intruders since most casual troublemakers won’t go to the trouble of trying to get through it.
Fencing also provides a clear boundary and visual signal to keep the general public from wandering into your event or construction site. Although anyone could overlook or ignore posted warning signs, no one will accidentally walk through a fence. This is especially important for high-risk areas that contain building materials, heavy equipment, or other hazards, as keeping away passers-by both protects them from injury and protects you from liability. This is one of the chief reasons why temporary fencing is prudent and a legal requirement for most construction sites.
Chain link fencing also keeps debris and loose materials contained within the site. For a long-term project that is exposed to the elements, all it takes is one good overnight storm to send scrap metal, insulation, or harmful chemicals flying down the block. A full perimeter of fencing coverage will go a long way toward ensuring that this doesn’t happen. If your fencing is equipped with a windscreen or shade cloth, it will also provide shade protection and a shield against dust.

Fencing covered in shade cloth also adds a great deal to your site’s overall appearance and professionalism. A construction site, large-scale event, or similar project will generate a lot of clutter, and screened fencing panels will prevent all that from becoming an eyesore to the rest of the neighborhood. They also offer you and your team some privacy and prevent unwanted onlookers from gathering to try and see what you are up to. No one wants an audience while they’re trying to manage cumbersome equipment or wrangle sheet metal.
Of the many types of temporary barriers available, chain link fencing is a superior option because of its durability, flexibility, and affordability. It is also compatible with many additional features to extend its functionality. Because of this, some firms will simply buy their own temporary chain link to have on hand permanently and install it themselves from one project to the next. While this can be a smart budgetary move, however, it also makes for potential problems.
