Make your mark: personalize your temporary fence with a name plate

A temporary fence is ideal to protect your property, but it also serves as a greeting card. People see your fence first and your building area or construction site later. So it’s important to leave a positive mark. A personalized name plate on your temporary fence for example is a great way to let people know who you are and what you can do.

Although a lot of people think a fence is just a fence, you know it can make a difference. Not every fence is the same. You can personalize your temporary fence by placing name plates on it. So people see in an instant which company is in charge.

The name of your company on your own fence is a nice way to present yourself. About 70 percent of our clients have personalized name plates. One of the mostly used fences in the Unitede States is the M450, a sturdy and reliable fence.
