If you’re working in the building or construction industry, it’s likely that you will need to use temporary site fencing for most of your jobs!
The options for temporary construction site fencing are broad, but the big question is – do you hire fencing, or do you buy your own temporary fencing?
Different options will suit different business needs, but read on for some insight into how the initial outlay of buying your own temporary construction site fencing can pay off in the long term!
It Will Pay For Itself
Temporary fencing is durable, tough and strong – it is designed to be used over and over again. If you need it once for your business, we can guarantee you’ll need it again somewhere down the line.
If you buy your temporary construction site fencing, it will have already paid for itself within a couple of projects – you’ll be saving money thanks to not having to pay for delivery and set-up, and avoiding extra costs for extending hire periods if your project doesn’t go to plan.
You’ll Avoid Hidden Hire Fees
While hiring temporary site fencing looks cheaper than buying, if you look closer you will often find hidden fees in your hire contract that means you can end up paying more than you initially expected.
This includes costly fees for damaged or missing site fencing – some companies may charge up to four times the actual cost to replace damaged fencing, so you are better off replacing your own fencing!
Buying Safety & Peace of Mind
Owning your own temporary construction site fencing means you don’t need to worry about varying safety or quality assurance between different hire companies.
Quality temporary fencing is a must when it comes to construction and building sites, where machinery and tools need protecting and safety precautions are required by law.
Having your own site fencing also means you can maintain it on a regular basis, rather than risking hire fences, clamps and stays that are damaged from overuse.
When you are looking at buying your own temporary fencing, make sure it’s a product that complies with occupational health and safety Australian standards, particularly AS4687 Temporary Fencing and Hoardings.
Convenience When You Need It
Having your own selection of temporary fencing means you won’t need to rely on a hire company stocking what you need, when you need it.
You will also save on delivery and set up fees, and it will be there whenever one of your projects requires it, helping you to save time and money!
Buying your own temporary fencing means you can have it manufactured to your required specifications, including the fence mesh gauge and the finish of the posts, rather than having to rely on a hire company stocking what you need.
