Case Study: Perimeter Patrol fencing secures construction zones at te Fort Campbell military base.
Welded Wire Temporary Fencing at Ft. Campbell
During construction of new military housing at the Fort Campbell military base in Kentucky and Tennessee, the site's construction operation services company, Worthington IBS (worthingtonibs.com), needed to set up temporary fencingto keep unauthorized personnel from entering the construction zone.
The company utilized Perimeter Patrol's temporary fencing panels to create "exclusion zones" around areas where dangerous work was being undertaken. These 6-foot high by 7.5-foot wide welded wire mesh fencing panels met the site's requirements for sturdiness, and portability.
"It is a difficult work environment, with uneven ground, muddy ground, and some open ditches," said Steve Krein, Worthington IBS Project Manager. "We needed fencing that was lighter than chain link, easy to move, and sturdy enough to be reused."
The company initially considered lightweight 3-foot high construction fencing, but concluded that it couldn’t provide the necessary safety because it was too short and could fall over too easily. In addition to providing increased stability, Perimeter Patrol’s high panels also enabled signage to be visible, and the bright yellow color of the fencing itself results in higher visibility than typical silver fence panels.
Throughout this construction at Fort Campbell (home of the 101st Airborne Division), it was important that any fencing could be easily moved out of the way of mobile equipment. At only 37 pounds, each Perimeter Patrol fencing panel can be moved and set up by one person.
Fort Campbell is the latest in a series of private and public sites that have selected labor-friendly Perimeter Patrol panels, packaged in self-contained pallets, to solve their temporary fencing needs.
