How can Temporary Fencing be used for the Construction and Rail Industry?Previous post
The Construction and Rail Industries rely heavily on zero ground strike temporary fencing around work zones and active lines.
Protecting your staff and assets whilst keeping the public safe is one of the main requirements in the construction and rail sector. Questions are asked on how secure a temporary compound or site could be with FenceSafe products?
Back in 2016, FenceSafe by CLD Fencing Systems launched a ‘Revolution in Temporary Security Fencing.’ Since then, they have gone on to develop multiple versions of the FenceSafe solution in a range of temporary mesh, access systems and turnstiles, all of which offer the same security and safety as their permanent counterparts. Check out the video below for a full construction/rail compound run down on how our products can be deployed foundation free for the same level of security as a permanent system.
From temporary hoarding in the form of FenceSafe Hoard that offers a sustainable solution to your project requirements, to FenceSafe SR1, the world’s 1st LPS 1175 Security Rated Temporary Fencing. Our Temporary Fencing Systems are contributing to the wider goals of saving the planet. The durability of FenceSafe Temporary Fencing means that it can be used on 10x more projects than traditional temporary fencing, only lasting 1 or 2 projects. The reusability of the FenceSafe range, paired with our Green Book, Planet Mark, and ISO 14001 credentials, we are on track to provide the world sustainable security!
We go into detail about the systems featured in the video, and real-world examples of how they supported a project.
The Patented Cantilever Bases
To start with, let’s look into the secret of the FenceSafe systems foundation free installation and rapid deployment, the patented cantilever bases.
If physical security fencing that withstands physical force is needed, then FenceSafe ballasted patented bases are designed to withstand winds in excess of 100mph conforming to BS EN 1991 for wind loading.
So, what are the features of the FenceSafe Cantilever Bases?
- 4-way adjustable brackets
- Fork entry points for easy site lifting and movement allowing for fast installation and adjustments
- Anti-jam pins for ease of stacking
- 200kg loose or bagged ballast (weight can be site specific) patented base resisting physical forces
- 100% recycled bases
FenceSafe Eclipse was the first in the range of systems to offer the permanent solutions in a temporary format. With profiled fence panels using 5 on 5 wire system, and a mesh aperture of 200 x 50mm it created a more robust panel than its successor, the 4 on 5 system.
The heights of the FenceSafe Eclipse vary between 1.23m to 3.03m depending on the perimeter security needed for a specific project.
The versatility of the FenceSafe Eclipse is what makes it a popular choice for many projects. From protecting officials at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting to the creating a appropriate pathways for workers at a Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water site. It’s a great all-round system for a project that needs temporary fencing with just that added level of protection.
Advantages of using our FenceSafe Eclipse System:
- Robust panels thanks to the 5mm wires both horizontally and vertically, resisting force better than weaker solutions
- Profiled panels that are attached with secure fixings to protect against attack
- FenceSafe Eclipse is designed specifically for site security
- Features 30mm projecting spikes to delay scaling of system
- Great system for lower-level security perimeters on a budget

Over 2,000 delegates from around the world, were protected by the FenceSafe Eclipse system making sure no unauthorised access was given.
FenceSafe Dulok Lite
FenceSafe Dulok Lite is a great option in our range for those projects that need further rigidity and security. With 656 twin wires, 5mm vertical wires and 6mm horizontal wires, and a mesh aperture of 200 x 50mm offering increased rigidity and security thanks to its double wire design.
Dulok Lite features a flat panel with a width of 2506mm, with varying heights from 1.83m to 3.03m. This system is a great option for those that need the rigidity of our permanent Dulok range.
It’s been used to create safe walkways for pedestrians whilst construction was being carried out alongside, with the peace of mind that laborers could freely work without the worry of unauthorised access from the public. To being used on school premises to cordon off a playground into infants and juniors, to keep play safe.
Advantages of using our FenceSafe Dulok Lite System:
- Dulok Lite offers an anti-cut-through system to protect against intrusions thanks to its 656 double wires

When an iconic 5th avenue store needed effective protection against possible civil unrest protests, as an alternative to simply boarding up windows and access points.
FenceSafe Hoard was designed and manufactured with sustainability and security for sites in mind. Made from highly durable composite recycled plastic, into sectional profiles measuring 500mm across by 35mm in depth.
For the ultimate easy installation, each board is connected by using tongue and groove click fix that slot into specially engineered rails and channels. These posts, 80 x 60 flanged rolled sections at 2.5m centres, can either be surface mounted on to concrete blocks or dug in.
If your main project requirement is net zero carbon in line with sustainable construction, then FenceSafe Hoard is a great alternative to other site hoarding systems. The boards can be reused onto multiple other projects until it’s broken down into granules and recycled to make more FenceSafe Hoard boards.
Advantages of using our FenceSafe Hoard System:
- Composite recycled plastic panels
- Easy click fix using our tongue and groove system
- The option to have either a foundation free surface mounted system or dug in
- Conforms to TWf2001 and BS EN 1991 for wind loading

Construction Site Safety
Some construction sites are pushed right up against public access areas and pedestrian footpaths. For safety reasons, there needs to be hoarding system put in place to demarcate construction zones and prevent any rumble or debris from falling onto footpaths. Safety and security are paramount and so FenceSafe Hoard was used.
