What is Safety Fencing and Why do you Need it.
Safety fencing is barrier fencing that surrounds an unsafe environment in order to protect the people or machines that are inside. Fencing can keep people or vehicles out of an area, or it can keep them in the area. It can also contain livestock or pets.
First and foremost, fencing helps protect workers and equipment from dangerous hazards such as moving machinery, high voltage power lines, explosions, molten metal and chemical spills.
These types of hazards are often found in factories where huge machines can cause serious injury or death if touched or tampered with inappropriately.
Temporary Fencing vs Fixed Safety Fencing
There are many temporary fencing applications, temporary fencing can be found at construction sites or near walkways so pedestrians typically avoid danger zones. Temporary fencing has many benefits and can be assembled quickly and taken down just as easily when finished with the work, making it portable and a great choice for crowd control applications.
Fixed barrier fences are more permanent in nature and they usually surround areas of extreme danger where they need to offer crucial protection against hazardous materials, beams, equipment or any other dangerous objects.

How to choose the type of fence that's best for you
The best type of fence for a given situation depends on the environment and the size of the area that needs to be protected. If you’re covering a large area or need a temporary fence solution, you might choose temporary fencing.
For example, if someone is working on an elevated area but doesn’t want pedestrians to walk underneath it, they could use safety nets or mesh below the person’s level to make sure nothing falls on them.
But if one is working near power lines or hazardous substances, permanent highly visible fencing will probably be necessary. It’s important to think about what kind of environment you’re dealing with when choosing safety fence panels because it can make all the difference in how safe your workers are.
