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 surely follow. This is clearly a danger for any people nearby, but also the continual re-erecting of downed panels will be a waste of your staff's time. A temporary fencing run must be able to withstand adverse weather conditions at any time of the year.
Weighting temporary fencing can be done in various ways and some methods are safer than others. Loose brick or planks of wood are sometimes used but this clearly isn't a good idea as site safety is extremely important. Braces, ground spikes, strut systems and stabilising braces are a few of the options available.
Stabilisers and block trays add support, are very dependable and are highly recommended.
The Big Foot Spigot Base connects to the panel, a stabilising bar and a block tray allowing additional weight and ballast to be added. It can be used with a Big Foot Stabiliser HD 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.
