    Reasons to Choose Windscreens and Privacy Screens

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Windscreens and privacy screens are temporary fences that can be useful for a variety of different situations. They are typically available in tan, green, blue, or black. Keep reading for a few reasons to choose windscreens and privacy screens.

    If you are hosting a large event, privacy screens are helpful when it comes to marking boundaries in a professional and efficient manner. They are also useful for construction sites, dog kennels, or baseball cages. Windscreens not only help to control wind movement in a specified area, but it also protects the space from debris carried by wind; this includes dust, sand, and small rocks that may make it difficult to work. Windscreens and privacy screens come in four, six, and eight foot high options, so they can be perfect for any type of job or event.

    Essential Tips for Managing a Large Crowd

    Last updated 2 months ago

    When a large group of people gather into a crowd, it is important to have several components in place to ensure that everyone stays safe. Fences or other barricades are helpful in guiding groups of people and letting them know where they can and cannot go. Read on for a few essential tips for managing a large crowd.

    Plan Ahead
    When it comes to managing a large crowd it is crucial to plan ahead. Make sure that you have the necessary staff to handle the crowd, and make sure that this staff is fully trained and prepared for the event. Before the arrival of the crowd, ensure that your site is not in violation of any public safety rules. It is also important to let emergency services in your area such as the police, hospital, and fire department know about the event.

    Provide Structure
    In order to manage a large crowd, you will need to provide structure. This may come in the form of fences, barricades, and signs. The crowd will need to know where they should go and where they should not go for specific services. If the crowd outnumbers the staff, fewer staff members will be available to answer questions, so it is important that signs and fences are used to efficiently direct patrons. Portable toilets are also necessary for many events that attract a mass of people; depending on the size of the event, you may need one or many.

    Have an Emergency Protocol
    It is imperative that you have a plan to follow in case of emergency. Make sure that you have access to first aid kits as well as automated external defibrillators as well as individuals who are trained in using them. In the event of an emergency, call the appropriate emergency services immediately.

    If you are going to be managing a large crowd, call Cal State Site Services, Inc. at (888) 440-6122. We are happy to provide barricades, fencing, and portable toilets in Simi Valley. Would you like to know more about our services? Feel free to visit our website to learn more today.

    What are the California Building Code Fence Requirements?

    Last updated 2 months ago

    While a new fence can offer protection, privacy, and aesthetic appeal, it is important that you abide by your local building codes. These codes ensure that your fence does not violate height, strength, or fire safety regulations. Keep reading to learn more about the California building code fence requirements.

    If your fence is shorter than six feet high, you will probably not need a building permit under California building code. When it comes to building a fence in your front yard, your fences must be built at a height of 42 inches or lower. The regulations are different for your backyard, however; fences that surround your backyard are allowed to stand up to 72 inches, or six feet tall. If you own a dog that you would like to keep in your yard, a fence about this size will typically be appropriate.

    If you are planning on building a masonry fence in California, you need to know about the associated regulations. When you build a masonry fence you must make sure that a course of block is set in fresh concrete before you pour your footing. The strength of your mortar mix, grout, and concrete is also important; your mortar mix will need to have a compressive strength of 1,800 psi, your grout must have a higher strength at 2,000 psi, and your concrete must have a compressive strength of 2,500 psi or higher.

    Always be cognizant of the location in which you build your fence. If you build a fence near a building, it must meet fire resistance standards or be made of noncombustible materials. You are also required to build a fence in certain areas; deeper swimming pools must be enclosed by fences that are at least 60 inches high and automatically close and latch themselves.

    Deciding on the Right Fencing Materials for Your Needs

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Regardless of whether you are looking to construct a fence for your new Southern California home or rent a temporary fence for an event you are in the process of planning, there are several fencing materials from which you can choose. In order to ensure that the material you opt for is right for your needs, wants, and constraints, take the following advice into consideration.

    Identify Your Fence’s Purpose
    Residential fences are generally built for privacy, security, pet and child containment, exterior home decoration, or a combination of these purposes. Temporary fences that are rented for festivals, weddings, other outdoor events, and construction sites are usually intended to keep the event or construction site secure and control who has access to them. When security is your main concern, a chain-link fence with barbed or razor wire lining the top is often your best bet.

    Know Your Budget
    Ornate wooden fences and some wrought iron fences can be costly, while chain-link fences are generally an effective option for property owners and organizations looking to build or rent a fence on a tight budget. Determine how much money you can spend on your temporary fence or fence construction, and narrow your options down by considering only fencing materials that work with your budget constraints.

    Consider Your Preferences
    Once you have assessed the practical aspects of your fencing needs and identified what fencing materials you can afford, you can let your personal preferences play into your decision. Consider aesthetics and fence maintenance needs, as well as any other ideas you have for the ideal fence.

    At Cal State Site Services, Inc., we have post-driven chain link fences, mini mesh fences, and wrought iron fences that can be used as temporary or permanent fence solutions on your property. For information about our fencing materials and our fence rental services that can guide you toward the fence that meets all of your criteria, give us a call at (800) 499-5757.
