We’ll help you find the best fence for your needs and offer you a competitive price so you don’t feel forced to choose between quality and budget.

Types of Temporary Fencing

In general, fencing options you can find at most companies fall into three different categories.

Orange Fencing

Orange fencing is relatively flimsy; it guides crowds, delineates spaces, and offers an extremely affordable price. However, because it provides security only a step above police tape, some fencing companies don’t offer it and prefer to provide competitive prices for higher-quality materials.


Portable barricades consist of metal panels with vertical bars. They usually weigh about 30 pounds, reach a height of around 43 inches, and have a length of 90 inches. 

They make an excellent option for crowd control, such as directing people to form a line at an event’s entrance or to buy tickets. You can reinforce them with sandbags to prevent crowds from moving them or to increase their resistance to high winds and severe weather.

Chain Link Panels

These panels are the premium temporary fencing option, and you can rent a variety of dimensions with heights up to eight feet and lengths up to 10 feet. This sturdy option works perfectly for increasing safety and security, and you can outfit them with various accessories, such as tamper-resistant hardware, to further improve their effectiveness.

Steps for Choosing Your Temporary Fence

When you consult with fence rental companies about your options, how do you choose which fence you need? Using the following steps, we’ll help you decide the best fence for your construction site, event, or emergency.

Determine Your Purpose

The first step in deciding between temporary fence panels begins with knowing what purpose you need them for. Consider the following common uses for temporary fencing and the best fencing options for it:

Calculate Size

Because you’ll pay more for a longer fence, the perimeter you need may affect the type of fence you can afford. Before you decide between a chain link fence, barricades, or orange fencing, measure how much you’ll need and then (if applicable) divide that number by the average panel length to determine how many panels you’ll need.

In most cases, you’ll rent a fence at a per-month, per-panel cost. For example, for one panel of chain link fence, you might pay $50 per month.

Plan Layout

If you’re considering how to choose the right type of temporary fence rental, planning the fence’s layout is arguably the most important step. Decide on the following aspects when planning your fence’s layout:

Refine Design

Once you know the location of all your access points, you can refine your design by determining what type of gates you need. Ask yourself the following questions:

You can also refine your design with additional enhancements. Blain Stumpf Construction Fence Rentals provides proprietary tamper-proof technology at no extra cost to you. These increase the fence’s security and your peace of mind.

You should also consider the benefits of adding sandbags. Laying these bags at the foot of the fence can help them endure the pressure of unruly crowds and prevent them from tipping over in high winds. 

Finally, consider the benefits of applying a windscreen to your fence. Not only do they increase privacy by reducing visibility, but they also prevent wind from causing problems at your site or during your event.

Incorporate Signage

In most cases, erecting a physical barrier is only the first step for privacy, security, and crowd control. You should also incorporate signage such as “keep out” or directions to the nearest gate or access point. You can also use signage to better communicate the purpose of the space, such as communicating which band plays in that space or which kid’s soccer teams have a game there.
