Temporary Fencing is a popular choice for the construction and event management industries where there is a need for demarcation of boundaries, crowd management and creating safe working zones. It can also be used to keep unwanted visitors from a site, and is relatively easy to transport and assemble due to its light weight.
It is important to use stabilising equipment with temporary fencing panels as they are easily affected by high winds, and when one panel is blown over the rest will follow. This is clearly a danger for any people nearby, but also the continual re-erecting of downed panels will be a waste of staff's time. Any project that is taking place near large, open expanses will be subjected to the effects of the wind and adverse weather generally. A falling fence is a safety hazard so the right stabilising products will help ensure maximum support.
Temporary fencing should be able to withstand high winds, no matter what time of year. In-ground stabilisers can be used to make the panels more secure but a stabiliser and block tray will add more support and is more dependable as extra ballast can be added to the tray.
The Big Foot Stabiliser HD connects to the panel with a coupler and then to the block tray, and allows additional weight and ballast to be added. It can be used with a Big Foot Tubular Spigot and Big Foot Block Tray to form the Big Foot Stabiliser system.
It is suggested that you used one stabilising block tray on every other fence panel but should there be particularly strong winds you may need to consider using one for each panel.
