Tough Projects Demand Sturdy Fence Bracing
Reinforce & Stabilize Your Temporary Fence Panels
Portability and easy reconfiguration make temporary fencing an invaluable asset — and a major liability when one or more panels fail. Fence bracing, an often-overlooked accessory, provides the crucial fence panel support to keep temp fences upright, intact and on the job.
Even top-of-the-line chain-link fence panels can fail if they break down under heavy winds or pressure from jostling crowds. Prevent security breaches and potential liability with the right fence bracing system for your construction or event application.
How do you add extra support to chain-link fencing? Start by choosing a manufacturer with decades of experience and positive customer feedback. Serving the construction and event markets since 1976, SONCO industry pros know what works — and what doesn’t. Check out these helpful facts about temporary fence bracing, as well as its most popular features and benefits.
Fence Bracing 101: The Basics
A rectangular welded pipe stand forms the most common temporary fence panel brace. This simple stand anchors the ends of two fence panels, joining them in a line or at an angle. When the brace is correctly installed on level ground, it supports the panel legs and provides a stable, low-profile support system reinforced with sandbags or concrete blocks.
While they are common at construction sites, sandbags and blocks degrade over time when heavy equipment and frequent moves damage them. In the end, you are left with a vulnerable perimeter and a messy, labor-intensive cleanup job.
Next-Generation Fence Panel Support
SONCO’s crowd-control team has improved the basic fence bracing system with a line of rugged, easy-to-deploy weighted bases for temporary fence panels. Outperforming old-school fence braces, our temp fence brace blocks meet stringent safety regulations, endure rough weather and hasty repositioning, and stand up to unruly concert crowds and daily construction zone activity. New-age temporary fence bracing targets these specific challenges of the worksite:
- Durability: Molded from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) that resists cracking & shock
- Visibility: Customizable with OSHA orange inserts or your preferred color
- Portability: Stackable with internal carry handles
- Safety: Low-profile with colored inserts to alert pedestrians & reduce tripping
- Sustainability: 100% recyclable

Bracing for Wind
High winds cause unpredictable fencing damage, especially when temporary fence panels are equipped with privacy screens or custom-printed graphics. If barrier damage occurs, you lose your investment AND the potential income generated by sponsorship or advertising revenue. Add perpendicular support to chain-link panels with an inexpensive and effective fencing accessory like our temporary fence panel brace.
Designed with two bends, this temp fencing brace attaches to the panel frame for added strength and stability. Rigid perpendicular bracing positioned every three to six panels strengthens your perimeter fence and keeps it erect in steady winds and gusty storms.
