Preparing to re-open outdoor events? Here’s why you need temporary fencing.
Temporary fencing has always been an extremely important feature at many outdoor events, both big and small. It’s one of those things that people often take for granted, but as with every product, someone must supply it, it doesn’t just appear overnight!
Remember the good old days of festivals, fairs, markets and concerts? Events currently seem like a thing of the past. But with the lifting of all restrictions in sight this month, life is finally returning to normal. Events of all shapes and sizes are back in full force, and no longer need to be a nostalgic memory!
Keep your event safe with temporary fencing
With hundreds and sometimes thousands of people descending on these long-awaited events, it’s going to be super important to make sure that you keep everyone safe. ‘Safe’ is a word with many connotations. Quality fencing can keep people safe from each other, in case of crushing, in a security sense and from flying balls at sports events. Furthermore – and probably at the forefront of everyone’s minds for a good while to come – safe from another wave of COVID (and let’s face it, no one wants that!)
Companies everywhere are trying to find ways to keep customers safe as we find a way out of the pandemic. If you own any kind of company that caters to outdoor events, such as an events company or equipment rental company, our temporary outdoor fencing solutions could be just what your customer needs.
Here are some of the most common uses for our temporary fencing solutions at outdoor events.
Temporary fencing to enforce queueing
Whilst restrictions on social contact were lifted earlier this month, it’s the moral responsibility of event organisers to monitor the numbers of people entering their event. Queueing systems will play a large role here. As well as reducing crowding and therefore the risk of COVID transmission, the chances of injury to people and property in bottlenecks at entrances and exits will also be lowered.
Temporary fencing for crowd control
Our fencing engineers have a wealth of experience in fencing for crowd control purposes at events of all sizes. A great example of this was when we provided an enjoyable but safe experience for all those attending the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London.
Any large gathering of people in close proximity has the potential for injury, damage to property and altercations. There’s also a risk of a dangerous build-up of people traffic.
Our engineers are experts in crowd control and security planning. We can provide and install temporary fencing that will keep your event safe and secure.
Keep trespassers out of your event
Trespassers at your event pose risks of damage to your property, theft, and simply sneaking in without paying for a ticket! Temporary event fencing not only keeps trespassers out, but also prevents guests from going into unauthorised areas. We can fence off service areas and VIP areas, and keep guests a safe distance from stages.
The FenceSafe Eclipse temporary security fencing system offers your event all the benefits and security of a permanent profiled mesh fencing system, but in a temporary installation. Designed specifically with event security in mind, we can erect this temporary fencing system at festivals and events. We can create secure areas for a range of reasons, from protecting CCTV systems to creating secure backstage compounds.
Temporary fencing for demonstrations and parades
The number of people attending demonstrations and parades is often underestimated. Therefore, it’s a great idea to use temporary fencing at these events.
We need to protect all those in attendance from traffic and from each other. Additionally, we need to protect property from them.
It’s the responsibility of both the event organisers and local government to ensure that temporary barriers are erected to keep everyone safe. Contact us today to see how we can help with this.
Temporary fencing for social distancing
As the government have listed restrictions, it’s more important than ever to create safe areas and walkways. This can help to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Whilst social distancing is no longer a legal requirement, it’s still a good idea to keep some distance between people. This will hopefully prevent a backwards step in the fight against COVID. Temporary event fencing is also a great place to display social distancing signage. This will keep safety at the forefront of everyone’s minds.
