1300TempFence have been at the forefront of the temporary fencing industry for over 24 years, with one of our founding members, Managing Director Bruce Fouracre, having sat on the Australian Standards committee for temporary fencing for over 14 years.
As a business we are constantly striving to innovate to provide extra levels of safety and security for our customers. Throughout the years the application of shade cloth and printed banner mesh to temporary fencing installations has meant an extra requirement for support bracing and engineering. By placing this product onto a fence, this creates a “sail” type effect and can topple a fence with what might only be considered a mild breeze. The minimum standard according to AS-4687-2022 is that a fencing installation must be able to withstand a windspeed of 54 km/hr.
To achieve the minimum standard, 1300TempFence have developed different bracing configurations which are dependent on the density and porosity of the shade cloth applied to the fence. These configurations are pre-engineered so our customers can have peace of mind that they are providing the safest product that they possibly can.
We have engineering to suit the following wind speeds and shade cloth/mesh densities:
- 54km/hr or 15m/s Windspeed for both 70% and 100% block out mesh/shade
- 86km/hr or 24m/s windspeed for both 70% and 100% block out mesh/shade
- 128km/hr or 35.5m/s windspeed for 70% block out mesh/shade
To achieve these engineering specs, we deploy our Support Stay and Hook Stay bracing or in most cases a combination of both.
