Temporary fencing is an alternative to its permanent counterpart when a fence is required on an interim basis when needed for storage, public safety or security, crowd control, or theft deterrence. It is also known as construction hoarding when used at construction sites. Other uses for temporary fencing include venue division at large events and public restriction on industrial construction sites. Temporary fencing is also often seen at special outdoor events, parking lots, and emergency/disaster relief sites. It offers the benefits of affordability and flexibility.[1]

Common forms of temporary fencing include a variety of plastic fencing or panels constructed of chainlink, steel or wire. Fencing commonly consists of individual panels that can be set up around the perimeter of the desired area to be fenced in.

Plastic Temporary fencing has been used during English cricket games since 2001 as a form of crowd control.[2]
