Why Temporary Fencing is Essential During Construction

  • Written by News Company

The construction industry is often considered as the backbone of the economy, owing to its contribution in terms of revenue and employment. New construction projects are planned and executed frequently in the state of Victoria as well as other states in Australia.

Therefore, both state and national governments have put strict rules and policies in place for ensuring safety, quality, and reliability. Real estate companies and individuals abide by all the necessary rules and policies for obtaining the required approvals to give legal status to their projects.

Temporary fencing witnesses an increase in demand whenever the construction works are at peak in this city. The reason attributing to this fact is that the sites, where any kind of construction activity is going on, have to be fenced off as per the Building Code of Australia.

So, irrespective of the size, type, or location of the structure to be built, the people in charge of the project make sure that the fencing that meets the regulations is installed in a timely manner. As the fence is removed once the project gets completed, it’s known as a ‘temporary fence’.

But along with enabling you to follow the rules, fencing also provides significant benefits. Learning about these benefits will help you to understand the rationale behind this regulation. We have mentioned below how fences erected on a temporary basis is beneficial.

Benefits of a Temporary Fence in Construction Works

  • Ensures Safety of Outsiders

The fence and gives a clear signal to the outsiders, i.e., the parties not involved in the project that the particular site is being used for construction work. Usually, occupants in the neighbouring buildings become aware of the project as they can see the workers and hear the noise.

But, in the absence of a fence, people who visit the area or locality for the first time might just barge in for enquiring about an address or any other reason. They might get injured on the site by materials and machines due to not wearing the personal protective equipment (PPE).

Thus, you can avoid the instances wherein the outsiders enter the premises by mistake and end up hurting themselves. Along with people, you can also ensure the safety of pets and stray animals by preventing them from visiting the site.

  • Keeps Your Belongings Secure

Construction sites have a large quantity of materials and expensive machines. Moreover, at times, contractors and workers might leave their personal belongings at the site. As these sites remain unattended during the non-working hours, they attract thieves and robbers.

As a result, materials that can be stolen easily are at risk throughout the duration of the project. A fence with a suitable height and strength can eliminate the risks of robbery and burglary. Even if someone tries to climb over the fence, the occupants of the neighbouring buildings will become alerted on hearing sounds.

  • Avoids Crossing the Boundaries

No matter how big a construction site is, it becomes completely occupied, as a massive quantity of materials and huge machines are used. In the case of some projects, workers start using the land outside the premises as well for storing the materials.

Therefore, residents and visitors in the locality face inconvenience in travelling on foot and driving the vehicle. The fence demarcates the boundaries of a construction site. While performing their tasks, handling materials, and using machines, workers take care not to cross the boundaries.

  • Reduces Inconvenience to Neighbours

As fencing keeps the materials and machines inside the premises, workers don’t have a reason to work or spend time in the space outside the premises. Common areas like streets or pathways can be used freely by the residents of the locality.

Moreover, fences reduce the noise that reaches the neighbours, i.e., the occupants of the neighbouring properties as well as bypassers. Thus, you can reduce the inconvenience caused to other people while your construction project is being carried out.


You should select the fence of an appropriate type, size, and design for your residential, commercial, and industrial construction project. Though the fence will be used temporarily, you should not compromise on quality, as the fence can prove to be useful in the future, especially in the case of real estate companies. You need to rely on reputable suppliers and installers for your temporary fencing needs.
