Temporary Security Fencing – No Thru™

What’s the problem with temporary site fencing?

Temporary site fences are everywhere. By law, building sites are required to erect temporary fencing from the time the building work commences until the lock-up stage at the very least. They can also be seen at most outdoor events such as concerts, sporting events and are also used for crowd control. The uses and locations for temporary fencing are endless.

Temporary fencing and security fencing is crucial to ensure your property and plant materials are protected from damage or/and theft. Another reason is to make sure the public is safe and to follow relevant health and safety regulations. Contact us today on +61 (0)456 789 000 to see why the No Thru™ temporary fencing system is the way forward for you.

Temporary fencing flaws

While a temp fence may look imposing, it has a fundamental flaw. No matter how high, thick or heavy a temporary fence may be, they can ALL be broken into simply by releasing the bolted bracket that holds two fence panels with a simple spanner. Yes anybody with a shifting spanner, aka adjustable wrench, can get through any temporary fence!

The solution

The No Thru™ International Patent Pending design has changed everything. There is no longer a physical way of discreetly undoing a fence with a tool and getting through. Contact us today for further information and see why the revolutionary No Thru™ temporary fencing is perfect for your needs.

Breaking into No Thru™ temporary fencing would require heavy cutting equipment that opportunistic thieves don’t carry around, and that targeted crooks would be reluctant to use to avoid drawing attention to themselves. There is even scope to strengthen and enlarge the No Thru™ temporary fence to a point where it’s almost impossible to breach. This opens up possibilities to protect high-value items and possessions, quickly establish national border controls, or address other acute crowd control needs.

This is all made possible because the No Thru™ fence has eliminated the bolted bracket design and replaced it with a patented interlocking system that simply cannot be separated by an unauthorised person. Do you want to know how?

How the No Thru™ security system works

The main part of the security system is in the foot of the fencing. The right-hand side has a key and the left-hand side has a brace that stops the foot panel from being lifted. The brace also stops the foot from rotating.

The No Thru™ temporary fencing system allows you to define your access points, so rather than having to monitor the whole perimeter or all the fencing panels, only the gate needs to be padlocked, and/or monitored by CCTV or a security guard. Imagine how much money this will save you!

Reasons why temporary fencing is needed

Local building regulation compliance

The Safe Work Australia Construction Work Code of Practice states that any workplace carrying out construction work must manage and control WHS risks and must also ensure that a construction site is secured from unauthorised access. This also applies to pool building even if the house is unoccupied.

Many construction sites are in public spaces and passers-by need to realize that the area is unsafe. Temporary fencing is a cost-effective way to ensure the general public is protected from wandering into the construction zone.

Stop unwanted people or vehicles from entering the premises

Thieves and vandals entering construction sites is a costly problem.
South Australia police reported a few years ago that theft and property damage from building sites averaged about $4,000 per new house in South Australia. This is an incredible amount alone but you have to add to this the stress of replacing equipment and materials, insurance excesses and increasing insurance premiums as well as increased security measures and delays in building completion.

As we can see, the effects can be devastating and sadly, conventional temporary security fencing just doesn’t cut it. Thieves and vandals can break through standard temporary fencing in minutes. That’s what makes the No Thru™ design unique. The No Thru™ patented interlocking system ensures unauthorized people can no longer discreetly and easily undo the fence. Imagine the money you will save! If you’d like to know more about our groundbreaking design, don’t hesitate to contact us on the number at the top of the page.

Pros and cons of temporary fencing

As mentioned earlier, temporary fencing and barriers are a cost-effective way of securing premises, a site or an event. They are very convenient because they are not secured to the ground and so can be moved easily. They are also reusable and so have a variety of uses and purposes, such as crowd control, construction hoarding, gardens or barricades.

Durable and multi-purpose

Temporary fencing is extremely durable, they can be used for long periods and also be used multiple times for different purposes without damaging them. Temporary fencing systems can also withstand all seasons, material dependent. This makes them highly sought after for outdoor usage.

One of the biggest advantages of temporary fencing is that they are easy to assemble and disassemble. This means they can be erected at short notice making them ideal for last-minute events and emergency situations. They can also be dismantled quickly and easily and be transported elsewhere.

Temporary fencing maintenance

One of the biggest downfalls of temporary fencing and barriers is that they need to be inspected and maintained regularly. Often, the bases get moved by the wind or kids playing with them and have to be moved back into the right position. Clamps and brackets can become loose or even get removed by vandals or thieves, as discussed earlier.

That’s one issue you never have to worry about with our No Thru™ temporary fencing. Our patented interlocking design ensures the brackets never become loose or are removed by an unauthorised person. Contact us today for a free, non-obligatory quote.

What are the benefits of buying temporary fencing over hiring?

Many people hire temporary fencing, thinking this is the best option. However, many companies in the construction and demolition, entertainment and events, and road management sectors now realise that buying is the cheapest option. This is due to the additional costs that often come with temporary fencing hire due to damage/theft, extended usage and set up.

When contemplating hiring or buying security or temporary fencing, it is important to ask yourself several key questions, such as:

  • How long am I going to use the fencing? Could the time scale be extended due to unforeseen circumstances and delays?
  • Will the temporary fencing be used for this project alone, or could it possibly be used for another project or event further down the line?
  • If buying, will the fencing or barriers need to be stored? Do you have space, and will additional storage space need to be bought/rented to accommodate the new fencing?
  • How much fencing will you need and what type? Will the amount of fencing needed change from project to project, or will the initial layout cover all future projects/events? Is the type of fence panel you buy going to change, or will one panel fit all uses?

Some of the main advantages of buying rather than hiring temporary fencing are:

  • No additional costs or charges due to damage/loss, admin costs, setup and cleaning fees.
  • More flexibility to use your fencing when and where you want. No time wasted sourcing and calling up temporary fencing hire companies—no waiting around for delivery, liaising with the fencing hire company and unwanted delays. You will be able to set your own timelines and get your projects started a lot quicker.
  • Many projects tend to run over the quoted time, and there are usually additional costs for extending your hire period. If you are going to use the fencing for more than 2 or 3 projects, then buying the fencing system is usually more cost-effective than hiring it.

What are the main uses of temporary fencing?

Construction and building

It is a legal requirement in Australia to have temporary fencing erected when building a new home. This applies from the moment the construction work starts all the way through to lock up. This is to ensure that construction debris is kept within the site and doesn’t become a hazard to the public. Also, that your site is protected from unauthorized access such as kids playing on the site or vandals/thieves,

Vandalism and theft are becoming more common problems all across Australia. Temporary fencing is easy to break into and many companies can’t afford round the clock security or expensive CCTV cameras. The No Thru™ security system ensures that your property and machinery is safe due to its unique locking mechanism. Watch this video to learn how it works.

Controlling crowds

Portable fencing has proved priceless at large events such as concerts, sporting events or large community events. It is often used to stop people sneaking into events for free and temporary barriers are commonly used to keep the crowd away from the stage area.

Pets & animals

Temporary fencing can be a cheap way to cordon off part of your garden or yard to contain and protect your pets. They can not only protect your pets from getting loose and causing damage to your garden or property but also stop them from escaping and hurting themselves or others.

Pool installation

As with all construction work, it is a legal requirement to use portable fencing when having a pool installed, even if you aren’t residing at the property. Rainwater can collect in the empty pool and pose a safety risk to children or even adults. Many pool installers include portable fencing within their contracts so make sure they have included it in your initial quote or invoice. Portable fencing used for pool installation is different from the temporary fencing used for crowd control and construction.
