From construction sites to concert venues, temporary fencing can be used in a wide variety of contexts whenever you need to clearly set area boundaries, control crowds, keep workers safe, and prevent trespassing. Different types of events call for different types of temporary fencing, so in order to select the product that best suits your needs, consult the guide below.
These low barricades come up to about waist level on a person of average height, and they are constructed from parallel vertical tubes or bars of steel. Their primary purpose is to provide a guide for pedestrians and cyclists. For example, these are ideal for crowd control at parades and marathons, or to create orderly queues and lines at carnivals.
Free Standing Panels
These large sections of chain link fence are available in four foot, six foot, and eight foot heights. These are idea for situations where you need a barrier that cannot easily be jumped or scaled. Event planners often use free standing fence panels to mark the outer borders of concert venues, fairgrounds, and other areas where attendees must pay before entering.
While not as decorative as the permanent wrought iron fencing you may install at your home, these free standing panels are ideal barricades in areas where aesthetics are a concern. If chain link panels look too industrial for your taste, select these free standing sections of wrought iron fencing.
Post Driven Fence
For longer-term construction sites, post-driven fencing is a secure, cost effective option. Unlike the free standing panels of chain link or wrought iron, post driven fencing is secured into the ground so that it does not easily fall over during windy conditions. When you expect crews to be working on a site for several weeks or months, this is your best option.

One of the advantages of living in Los Angeles is the sunny, gorgeous weather, which allows you to plan outdoor events year-round. When you are planning a concert in the park, a block party, a street fair, or any other type of outdoor event, there are several steps you need to take to ensure that everything goes off without a hitch and that your attendees enjoy themselves. From reserving a spot to fence rental, here’s how to plan your event:
Select a Location
Once you have an event in mind, you must first find a suitable outdoor location. There are many public parts in cities across Southern California, and many different venues designed specifically for outdoor events. Whether you settle on a fairground or a neighborhood street for your event, you will need an easily accessible location with plenty of parking.
Depending on which city you hold your event in, you may need to obtain a set of permits in order to legally use the space. Regulations and permitting processes are different depending on whether your event will take place in a public park, on the streets and sidewalks, or at a specially designated event space.
Secure the Area
If you are not using a dedicated event venue, you will need to set up temporary barricades and fences to clearly mark out the perimeter of your space. This will help security control the number of people who enter the event, as well as allow volunteers or staff to collect tickets and payment.
Provide Facilities for Attendees
Longer events that provide food and drink will need to be equipped with portable toilets so that attendees can use the facilities without leaving the grounds or stepping outside the barricades. Make sure that you have enough portable toilets so that long lines don’t form.
Cal-State Site Services Inc. provides all the rental equipment you need to create the perfect space for an outdoor event, including temporary gates, barricades, fencing, and portable toilets. To learn more about pricing and availability, call us today at (888) 440-6122.

Construction sites, street fairs, block parties, and outdoor concerts all need portable toilets. If you have a number of workers or event attendees who you expect to spend several hours outdoors, some of them will need to use the restroom sooner or later. If there is no infrastructure nearby, you will need to rent an adequate number of portable toilets so that lines do not become too long.
There are two factors to consider when renting portable toilets: the duration of your event and the number of expected attendees. If, for example, you are supervising a construction site with 50 individuals who work six-hour shifts, you may only need two portable toilets. If you expect more than 4000 attendees at your eight-hour street fair, however, you will need about 40 portable toilets. For any events longer than four hours, a good rule of thumb is that you should have at least 1 toilet for every 100 people.
Cal State Site Services, Inc. provides portable toilet rental and fence rental for events throughout the greater Los Angeles area. For pricing quotes and further information, call us now at (888) 440-6122.

Renting perimeter fencing for your construction site prevents stray animals and vagrants from entering the premises at night and on days off when crews are not present. Fencing serves a purpose beyond preventing trespassing, however: it also protects workers, bystanders, and passers-by from construction accidents.
The Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration strictly regulates perimeter fencing on construction sites. To learn more specific information about these regulations and to find out if they apply to you, watch this video.

Each day, a number of Los Angeles residents install barbed wire fencing to protect their residential and commercial properties from trespassers, burglars, or other troublemakers. What those residents may not be aware of is that the materials that they acquire from their fence rental company are the modern result of more than a century of evolution. Here is a brief history of barbed wire.
Home on the Range
Barbed wire was initially created in 1868 as a means of containing cattle and livestock. Its creator, Michael Kelly was soon followed in his endeavors by a farmer named Joseph Glidden who created a more durable double-strand barbed wire in 1874. The use of Glidden's design around the plains was met with controversy as many ranchers and Native American tribes became angered that they could no longer herd animals as they used to. This sparked so-called “range wars” in which ranchers would cut down barbed wire fencing.
An Explosion of Patents
Once dissatisfaction for fencing in properties settled around the early 1900s, manufacturers began to realize the profits that producing barbed wire could present. The U.S. National Park Service estimates that between manufacturing companies and homesteaders, more than 2,000 different styles of barbed wire were created and over 500 patents were established.
The Various Styles Available
The biggest distinctions between the thousands of barbed wire fencing styles of the early 20th century were seen in the knotting of the wires and the barb itself. For example, the Bain Reverse “H” Barb designed in 1902 by John H. Bain of Ohio featured two strands of wire twisted to form an “H” shape for the barb in the center. This differs greatly from the Rogers Modern Flattened Strand, which featured a four point barb on a single strand of wire.
The barbed wire fencing styles available from Cal State Site Services, Inc. are guaranteed to be strong, durable, and effective in keeping out intruders.
