The Benefits of a Fence Windscreen

Fence windscreenWe don’t just install temporary fences for seasonal events and construction projects. We also include other add-ons that increase privacy and protection. A fence windscreen is one such add-on commonly requested by our clients. You may benefit from it as well, depending on the nature of the event or project.

What Is a Fence Windscreen?

Its purpose is stated right in its name. The windscreen may come in the form of a tarp or mesh that covers the fence. It minimizes the disruption caused by strong gusts. Windscreens are a common component of construction fences. It serves as a barrier that reduces wind pressure at ground level.

The addition of a windscreen is especially beneficial now that winter is here. Seattle is no stranger to blustery days. While a windscreen won’t completely turn a windy day into a calm one, it will prevent strong winds from becoming an unnecessary distraction.

Windscreens also contribute significant value at sporting events. Wind disruption can disturb player focus and also influence ball trajectory. The windscreen also completely or partially blocks the view. This is useful for events where you want to prevent non-paying spectators from watching the game. Some sports fields also use the screens as a permanent fixture to ensure privacy during practice.

Our clients have also requested windscreens to keep an event out of view until it’s ready for presentation to the public. This is especially common for special events like outdoor galas, tradeshows, and exhibits.

While commonly used for the basic chain link fence, windscreens can be used for most fence types.
