How is the temporary fence secured to the ground?

Ideally the fence is set with posts driven in the ground.  This is not always possible so using sandbags is necessary to secure the fence over paving.  Make sure your fence contractor provides at least two sandbags per post.

Should my temporary fence have gaps on the bottom?

Any gap at the base of your fence is a possible point for a break-in.  Others see these gaps as an opportunity to lift the fence and crawl under it.

What is a clear zone and do I need one?

A clear zone is an area near your fence that is clear of equipment, tools, objects, etc. You should establish a clear zone on the inside and outside of your fence.  We recommend 5′ on both sides.  This not only removes items for others to climb but also removes items for potential thieves to hide behind.
