Cutting Costs – Why More Builders Buy Temporary Fencing

If you run your own construction company or small business, you know how important cash-flow is – and the idea of forking out to buy your own temporary fencing might seem like a big expense.

But those in the construction industry also know the importance of temporary fencing – it keeps construction sites and the area around them safe and secure. It’s time to consider buying your own temporary fencing so you’re not stuck hiring fencing over and over for every new job.

At The Temporary Fencing Shop, we can help determine your fencing needs and save you money – read on to find out the benefits of owning temporary fencing compared to hiring.

Safety First

There are a number of points under the Safe Work Australia Construction Work Code of Practice that make it mandatory for a workplace with construction work taking place to be secured from unauthorised access.

If your build site is near a route travelled by children, a school, park or recreational area, the code recommends you install a perimeter fence if hazards can’t be removed.

If you’ve got scaffolding on your site, you’ll also need to prevent unauthorised access to the scaffold while it’s incomplete or unattended.

You also need to keep the public safe if your site is in an area that can be easily accessed – failing to do so could result in the risk of injuries or even death. All these factors prove just how important quality temporary fencing is onsite.

Temporary fencing is the perfect option for keeping both your build site and the area around it safe, so make sure you can fulfil your fencing needs by buying your own fencing equipment rather than hiring. Purchasing temp fencing means you have full control of the equipment and how it is maintained.

It’s Cost Effective

If you work in the construction industry, you already understand that you’ll find the need for temporary fencing more than once.

While the name implies it’s not permanent, that doesn’t mean that temporary fencing can’t be used again and again – it’s durable, strong and tough, and designed to be used across many projects!

Hiring temporary fencing might seem like the cheaper and more convenient option at first, but if you’re finding yourself with a need to use it on a frequent basis, it’s time to look at buying it outright!

Buying temporary fencing means you can use your fence when and where you want, and there are no terms and conditions or hidden costs. It will also pay for itself after only one or two projects!
