Construction fence sizes

Chain link fence panelsFence 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.
