When is the right time to install perimeter fencing?


Zaun HiSec 358 Security Fencing Perimeter Fencing install perimeter fencingIf you are in charge of organising the security for a major event, you may be wondering when you should start installing security fencing. It can be difficult to choose an appropriate time to establish a perimeter using fencing. In addition, you probably wish to minimise the amount of disruption that the installation process will cause. However, as experts in security fencing and perimeter creation, we at Zaun want to help you install and use our products with ease and confidence, so we have collated a few guidelines that you may find useful.

1. Start thinking about installation as soon as possible

As soon as you know where your event will be taking place and when it is scheduled to begin, it would help if you started looking for opportunities to install security fencing around the area. Ideally, it would help if you tried to have your fencing installed before other preparations for the event begin; this will ensure that the installation process does not disrupt them. What’s more, by looking for opportunities to install your fencing early, you can give yourself the greatest possible time window in which to get the job done. Don’t worry about the security fencing becoming damaged if you install it too soon before the event – our fencing solutions are built to last here at Zaun, so that won’t be a problem.

2. Pick a time when there aren’t many people around

We recommend that you try to have your perimeter fencing installed when there won’t be too many public members near the site. This will ensure that the job gets carried out more quickly and smoothly because the workforce responsible for the installation won’t have to expend valuable time and effort keeping the public out of the area.

3. Think about the time of year

If you need to install security fencing during the summer or spring, you can afford to wait for an ideal opportunity because the installation process is less likely to be disrupted by heavy rain or other harsh weather conditions. However, if you need to have security fencing installed during the winter or autumn, you may be better off seizing the first chance you get. After all, you don’t want to have to leave it until the last minute due to nightmarish precipitation levels.

Here at Zaun, we don’t just sell security fencing; we also install it. So when you’ve picked an appropriate time to install your fencing, feel free to let us know, and we can take on the task ourselves.
