Working in the construction industry or building sector in some capacity means you will most likely have come across temporary fencing for rent.
Used to help keep pedestrians away from all of the dangers on site and to keep the area in question safe and secure, hire fencing can provide you with a whole host of benefits.
The biggest question that many people and companies ask themselves is whether to hire or indeed buy temporary fencing.
Of course, different factors will come into play for various businesses and differing projects. In this post, we provide some further information on how renting site fencing can be the best option, saving you valuable time and money for those all-important budgets!
Hiring construction fencing can save you money!
Every project is different.
This means that the temporary fencing you purchase for one project may not be suitable or indeed enough for your next project.
Then what do you do?
Hiring fencing that you need when you need it and for how long you need it, can in this sense, work out to be much more cost-effective and save you from a lot of headaches and additional planning in the long run.
With flexible hire terms available from Site Fencing, we ensure that our customers have the right fence, at the right time, with the correct sizes and panels – removing all fencing when your project is finished and complete.
Your team doesn’t have to erect the fencing
If you buy and have in store your fencing, members of your team then become responsible for erecting it when needed. However, this can take them away from other tasks that they could be getting on with. They also may not be trained to put up fencing or indeed, know how to erect it securely, causing potential health and safety problems.
Renting your temporary fencing from a reputable supplier means that you have peace of mind knowing that it will be delivered to site, erected where you have specified, safely, securely, and as efficiently as possible.
You don’t have to pay for storage
This leads us nicely onto storage. Do you have somewhere to store your fencing when not in use? What about the correct mode of transport to deliver it safely?
These are additional costs that can often be forgotten about when purchasing temporary fencing; however, we would recommend they be taken into consideration and built into all budgeting.
Quality and safety are guaranteed
If you are using a reputable supplier.
A reputable supplier will always guarantee the quality of their fencing and erect, such as fencing 100% safely.
Are your teams trained in such processes and practices?
Can you guarantee the same levels of safety?
Protecting your site
Temporary fencing sets clear visible boundaries, helping to keep pedestrians and unwanted visitors out – this helps to reduce the chance of theft of tools, materials, equipment, etc.
In this sense hiring temporary fencing like anti-climb fencing can be a small expense when outweighed with the cost of replacing stolen equipment. Or even the losses incurred due to work not being carried out because of missing tools and equipment.
It can help with insurances
Putting all, and the right, security measures in place can help to lower your insurance rates. And regular use of these security measures can help to lead to reduced premiums and shows compliance with all health and safety regulations.
Keeps you compliant
Temporary fencing can help to make you compliant with many of the health and safety regulations set out for construction and building sites. Keeping you and your teams safe.
You must be aware of the regulations and your requirements, and you must act accordingly, not to risk fines or any additional fees!
