AS 4687-2007 Temporary fencing and hoardings

Recommended Posts

I've lost count of the number of small and large contractors who have asked us to certify these type of temporary fences.  The wind speeds are so low from this standard that you will often see these temporary fences blown over after a storm.

If these are just being used to discourage the public from entering a new house being built in the suburbs, sure maybe thats ok.  When they get blown over in a storm, no one gets hurt, but they should be picked up immediately so they dont block the footpath.

They should not be used near roads, public areas likely to be crowded, excavations, major infrastructure or large developments.  No location if toppling would risk injury to the public or sites where the public could be injured or killed by entering (heavy plant and equipment).
