Transporting Fencing Without a Fence Rack?
SONCO’s Sollage Rack Saves You Money & Time!
In the temporary fence rental business, chain-link panels take a beating. Some fence panels get mangled with construction site abuse, but other damage doesn’t occur on the job. It happens during transport. If a glance over your storage yard reveals bent, rusted and unusable temp fence panels, evaluate your distribution and storage setup. The damages can add up fast if you don’t use fence racks!
SONCO Keeps Fence Panels Looking Good & Working Hard
Companies have two main goals when they purchase or rent temporary fencing:
- Securing a venue or job site
- Maintaining an attractive, professional site appearance
Damaged fence panels fail on both counts. Bent frames prevent secure panel-to-panel connection, and torn mesh enables access by intruders and unauthorized people. Plus, rusted panels look unsightly, and they fail to project a professional image to crews, clients or guests.
For a long service life and better return on investment, construction managers and rental agents rely on top-quality temporary fencing — like SONCO’s Versa chain-link panels. But even SONCO’s heavy-duty, welded temp fence panels can get battered by poor transport and storage practices. Keep fencing looking and performing like new when you use a temp fence rack to move and store your chain-link system.
Hazards of Moving Panels Without Fence Dunnage
Uniform fence panels should stack neatly on a flatbed truck, right? That’s a common and costly misconception. Without a fence rack, frames made from round pipes tend to slip and slide over each other, creating an unstable load. When you lift precarious fence stacks with a forklift or secure them with a ratchet strap, slippage leads to panel damage, including:
- Bent chain-link fence frames
- Chain-link mesh tears
- Galvanized zinc scratches
- Total panel loss during transport
- Injuries to workers, vendors or job-site guests
Costs of Transport & Storage Without a Sollage Rack
The profitability of your temp fence rental or purchase hinges on keeping panels intact and deployed. Transporting and storing fence panels between jobs involve repeated stacking, loading, unloading and re-stacking — with many opportunities for panel or worker injury. When this happens, your company is on the hook for lost revenue and other costs of temp fence mishandling. Costs like these:
- Time consumed by untangling & re-stacking damaged panels.
- Inventory shrinkage from fence panels lost in transport or damaged in repeated moves.
- Lost crew hours & worker injuries from sliding fence panels, torn mesh, unstable stacks or unbalanced truckloads.
- Liability for road hazards & accidents caused by poorly secured panels that fell off trucks.
- Damage to your business reputation.
Imagine your savings in money, time and worry when you replace haphazard panel stacking and ratchet-strapping with a sturdy and practical Sollage fence rack from SONCO!
