Reasons to Use Windscreens
While there are many outdoor venues that provide some form of screening from the wind on a permanent basis, there is sometimes a need to provide similar, albeit temporary, protection at a location that is not normally equipped with such things. It is also true that permanent windscreens can prove inadequate to their designed purpose under certain conditions– thus requiring some form of temporary expansion or support.
This is usually accomplished either through the erection of a fabric windscreen over some non-windproof structure such as a temporary chain link fence. There are many times when such temporary wind protection is essential to the performance of some selected outdoor function. They can protect from wind and the dust it kicks up so no one is hassled or injured. They are also useful to beautify a location or maintain privacy.
Perhaps someone is holding a wedding at a scenic but occasionally windy locale. The festivities could be severely disrupted in the event of it happening on a particularly tempestuous day. Independent video productions that shoot at the same location over a period of days could benefit from wind management with temporary windscreen fence to keep the scenes looking exactly the same between one day and the next. Half of a scene shot under windy conditions and half under calm ones are not going to match up very well, so a little bit of wind control is frequently in order. If you’re using a temporary fencing option from Viking Rentals, you’ll want to consider using a windscreen as well.
Windscreens Are Easy to Use
Temporary windscreens can be quickly deployed and just as rapidly taken back down again, so they are perfect for emergency containment or large events. Temporary fencing with windscreens are more affordable than a permanent option too, especially since they’ll typically only be needed for a certain amount of time.
In addition to protecting job sites from wind and dust, windscreens can be used for privacy and security. Since construction sites tend to be active longer than event sites, it’s essential to keep them protected for the entirety of the time they’re being used. A windscreen attached to the temporary fence surrounding the area can help keep the space cleaner and more secure.
