Below are descriptions and common applications for each type of fence Modu-Loc offers:

Standard Fence Panels

Our standard temporary fence panels are professionally engineered for strength and durability to provide the highest level of security in the rental fence industry. Constructed with steel and heavy gauge welded wire mesh, these panels are built to last. This is the best type of fence to use if you need to secure the perimeter of an event of construction site.

The bases may be anchored to concrete or asphalt for extra stability, while the interlocking steel caps ensure alignment and overall stability. Our standard panels can integrate into most of our specialized solutions, such as our fence on jersey system or our concrete block ballast system for added safety and security.

Available in lengths of 5′ and 10′, and heights of 4′, 6′, and 8′, our standard green fence panels suit a wide range of applications. Although they are most frequently used to secure a perimeter, these temporary fence panels have been used for everything from propane compounds to road hockey tournaments.

Common Applications:

  • Perimeter fencing for construction
  • Perimeter fencing for events

These are a cost-effective solution for customers who have long-term or frequent site containment needs.
