Event & Festival Temporary Fencing


Every year across the UK, especially in Spring and Summer us brits love to flock to Outdoor Events, including Music Festivals, Food Festivals, Car Boot Sales, and Sporting Events.

This means Organisers across the UK will put in place Safety and Security Fencing using Temporary Fencing Solutions.

Upcoming changes to Government Legislation, known as The Protect Duty, will expand on Martyns Law which was campaigned for by the Brave Mother of a 2017 Manchester Arena Victim.

The new Legislation will mean Crowd Control will become under stricter control and include crowd control at smaller events.

Security Fencing and Temporary Fencing will play a Key Part in ensuring Venues are Safe and Secure.
