Temporary Heras Fencing

Hire or Buy

Temporary fencing can be used to secure property and construction sites from trespassers and to protect the public. Heras is a type of temporary metal mesh fencing that is lightweight and quick and easy to install, providing security and protection on building sites and at premises and events.


The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) states in its HSG-151 Protecting the Public Guidelines that a 2m high fence is an effective site barrier for most sites. It also says perimeter fences can be constructed from a range of materials, including metal mesh. The fence should be difficult to climb and HSE recommends using a close mesh which prevents children getting their hands and feet through so no one can gain handholds or footholds.

Temporary Heras fencing from SafeSite Facilities is just over 2m tall and is anti-climb, to ensure your site has full compliance with HSG-151 guidelines. As well as this, our Temporary Heras fencing is able to resist gale force winds due to its view-through design.

We can also supply Pedestrian Gates and Vehicle gates, fully compatible with our range of Heras fencing, to allow safe and secure access to your site. As well as this we have Fencing Ballast Kentledge Blocks when extra weight is needed to secure your Heras fencing


SafeSite Facilities has an efficient team of installers to set up temporary fencing, whether it’s a lightweight Heras solution which can be put in place very quickly or more heavy duty temporary metal fencing. It can also be self-installed if preferred.


Heras fencing is most commonly used to secure building sites where materials need to be kept secure and the public need to be kept away for their own safety. It may also be used to secure the area around a building waiting to be demolished or at public events.

Heras fencing from SafeSite Facilities was also used for crowd control at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
