My structural engineering friend and I passed a construction site years ago, and he called those temporary fences a technical name. Now I ask him the technical name he said those years and he doesn't even remember the moment, understandably, and is not sure there is even a technical name to begin with. I googled "what is the fence built around ongoing projects called" and 'temporary fencing" came up.
This is my final straw to chalk it up to a distorted memory or finally learn that elusive name (every few months I remember that moment and still don't remember the name). So is there any technical name for temporary construction fences just as we have aggregates for sand, gravel, etc? If there is, please for the love of sanity, what is it?
