Choosing a fence to surround the stage at a music event might seem simple, but there are many options and things to consider. You need to think about the type of material of the fence, the height, etc. You should know the following things before you set up a fence.
Know the exact purpose of the fence
Decide whether you just want to keep fans away from the stage or if you also want to be environmentally friendly or make a statement. You don’t need to use standard fencing. You might want bold colors or whatever else goes with the stage set. The purpose or purposes of the fence will determine the type of material you want to use.
Choose the material carefully
Look for the best quality materials and value. Some materials require a lot of maintenance while others are much easier to keep in a good condition. The materials will also be influenced by whether you just want plain fences or want to do something more with them. The materials will vary in price so you need to consider your budget here as well. If you would like to be environmentally friendly, find out which materials are best.
Order the materials and customize if needed
Once you have made your decision on the type of material, place your order for the correct amount of materials or panels. Keep in mind how high the fence needs to be. If it is a small venue, there should be no need for excessively high fences. A simple shorter fence will indicate the boundaries for fans. If you know that you want to customize the fences, purchase the supplies for doing that while you wait for your fence to arrive. Plan any patterns, colors, or other effects carefully. You don’t want to mess up expensive fencing.
Use natural fences at outdoor venues
When performing outdoors, use the natural plants, trees, etc. as fencing if possible. Set up your stage and equipment on one side of the shrubs and maybe just add a small fence behind it to make sure everyone knows not to pass it.
Allow for entrances or gates
Depending on the venue, the extent of the fence, and the permanence of the fence must allow for entrances or gates. You will need a place to enter and exit. You also want security to be able to get to you fast when needed. If something happens to an audience member, the fastest route to help may be from the front. Entrances will help to make things easier for everyone.
Use professional fencers
Professional fence builders and installers are your best option. This is especially true for when you are installing permanent fencing at a venue. It takes more than just digging a hole. Some fences can stand without being planted – they are more temporary. Permanent fences should be grounded.
You should use these tips as they suit your needs. Your fencing needs will be determined by different things. A venue owner will choose different fences for permanent use than a band playing a small gig in a park, will choose.
