Re: Temporary Construction Fence

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We are providing some design advise for a contractor constructing a 
temporary design fence around there construction site. The fence is 12' 
high with the first 4 ' plywood and the remaining 8' a geotextile 
fabric.  The fence is intended to be a "good neighbor" fence to minimize 
dust etc from leaving the construction site.

Was looking for some reference in the code about reducing the wind loads 
for a temporary structure.  Since the fence will only be up for 6 months 
the likelyhood of a hurricane or major wind storm is small.  Does anyone 
know of a reference for design loads on temporary structures?
