A hoarding is defined as a temporary boarded fence in a public place, usually erected around a building site. These are used to protect the public from site works whilst also being used to display advertisements.
A prominent advantage of site hoarding is that it protects the general public from serious injury, by creating barriers around safety hazards such as:
- On-site vehicles.
- Falling objects.
- Construction equipment.
- Noise, dust or vibration.
- Slips and trips near pedestrian walkways.
In line with UK regulations, construction and building site hoarding must offer both appropriate protection for the public and prevent their unauthorised access. This means that it needs to be: installed before any construction work starts high enough to stop people climbing over strong and sturdy enough to withstand a reasonable amount of force Site hoarding should block the view of passers-by – helping to deter opportunistic theft. It also needs to control site access, with secure gates and access points for authorised personnel only.
Printed hoarding signage has many benefits which make it a popular safety and visual solution. Some of the benefits of hoarding design and printing include;
- Hoarding advertising is a proven way to increase leads and interest
- Printed hoarding panels improve presentation and promote a more professional company image
- Printed hoarding signs inform local residents of what is happening behind the hoarding
- The hoarding board itself will protect and preserve the hoarding when it is fully cladded
Typical timber hoarding panel board is largely not recyclable due to its mixed composition (glue, metals, paint and wood).
The FenceSafe site hoarding solution, however, has been designed using a robust composite recycled plastic profile which is as durable as it is sustainable.
Temporary fencing is a non-permanent self-supporting fence panel. In many cases the panels are held together with fixings that secure and lock panels to their posts or frames. Temporary fencing is portable and flexible, making it ideal for a wide range of sectors and applications.
Temporary fencing is used in a wide spread of applications, from outdoor festivals and sports events to construction sites. Offering true anti-cut temporary fencing in the form of twin 6mm horizontal wires with a 5mm vertical, FenceSafe Hire Dulok Temporary Fencing is the first choice for temporary sports events and security. Featuring a flat front, the application of screen from view banners has never been easier.
FenceSafe Hire Temporary Fencing uses the same posts and panels as a permanent rigid mesh fence but in a foundation free format thanks to its patented cantilever base. Certified to BS EN 1991 for wind loading in excess of 100 mph and conforming to TWf 2012 for temporary works, each cantilever base takes 200kg of bagged ballast.
From a sustainability perspective all the cantilever bases are manufactured from 100% recycled plastic; whilst the fencing is made up of at least 90% recycled British and European Steel.
Security comes as standard. For the first time there is a temporary security fencing solution that offers a tested and certified minimum delay against attack. The FenceSafe SR1 temporary security fencing has been developed and engineered to withstand attack to LPS 1175 SR1 giving it a minimum of 60 seconds delay against a host of tools.
