Fast Fence Inc.
To Rent or Not to Rent

To rent or not to rent, that is the question. Brent Newburg, Operations Manager for Fast Fence Inc. explains how many customers prefer to rent temporary fencing rather than maintain their own inventories: "Our rental customers would rather focus their crews on the job at hand, rather than taking time to transport, install and dismantle their own panels."

Fence Sizes

Fence panels are commonly available in 10', 12' and 13' lengths. While shorter panels may be easier to handle and transport, longer panels allow for quicker set-up (i.e. setting up 120' of 12' panels can be 20% faster than setting up the same linear footage of 10' panels).

Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) requires "if work on a project may endanger a person using a public way, a sturdy fence at least 1.8 meters in height shall be constructed between the public way and the project." (O. Reg. 213/91, s. 65). Since the OHSA requires 6' high fencing, this is the most common height available for construction fencing.
Super-Fencer of the Month

This month's Super-Fencer is our Marketing Manager, Allyson.

Q: How w ould you describe your job?
Every day brings something different and my role is a bit of a 'Jane of all trades.'  My key role is marketing but with a small office, there are always lots of other tasks to take on.  Interspersed with blogging and managing the website among other things, you might find me arranging first aid training, fixing a computer or clearing a printer jam :)

Q: What do you enjoy most about your job?
Writing and keeping up with the latest online technology.

Q: What might someone be surprised to know about you?
I once cycled 3,000 kms around Southeast Asia and lived to tell about it.

Q: If you could choose a super-power, what would it be, and why?
Definitely time travel, so I could fit a workout and an hour of undisturbed reading into every day!
