What is Construction Hoarding?

By on May 17, 2021 in Blog |

Construction hoarding is defined as a fence or barrier between a construction site and the public; with the purpose to simply keep workers safe. Construction sites that are based along pedestrian walkways need plastic hoarding to ensure that there is no interference on-site from the general public. Although additional labour is required, this is definitely a necessary hassle to help keep your site safe. For this blog, Network Scaffold Services will share some of the benefits of hoarding plus some intriguing insights. The Advantages of Construction Hoarding Here are the three main benefits of construction hoarding – Public Safety – As previously mentioned public safety is one of the most benefits of using our construction hoarding. This is the reason a lot of construction sites that are near to public access areas use our products. Hoarding also shows people they cannot enter the area plus you can further enforce the message with signage on your hoarding. To make sure the hoarding is reliable, we would recommend using a system that is wind resistant and safely secured into a base or the ground to prevent tipping. Site Security – One of the best things about using site hoarding is that it keeps your project away from prying eyes. If you are looking to keep your project under wraps, hoarding acts as a visible barrier between your site and the public. The public will also not be able to see your materials and tools being stored on-site, protecting them from potential theft. Branding Your Site – From a marketing perspective, construction hoarding is one of the simplest branding opportunities you can have. Your investment in keeping the public safe can also double as a way to advertise your upcoming project. Branding your site will add brand recognition plus could potentially increase interest and sales once the site opens.

For our latest blog, we will talk you through the main uses of plastic hoarding. 6 Ways Plastic Hoarding Benefits Your Project 1. Securing Your Project – Construction design and management regulations state all building firms must take steps to prevent unauthorised entry to their sites; including trespassers or vandals. This means securing a perimeter around the works and installing adequate hoarding before work begins. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) also states companies must physically design site boundaries using appropriate signage. 2. Protect the Public – Hoarding protects the public from any potential injury by providing a barrier between possible dangers such as building equipment plus on-site vehicles, falling objects and any other hazard that could be common on construction sites. 3. Keep a Project Under Wraps – There is plenty of reason you may want to keep your project under wraps until its finished. Site hoarding helps you to do just that, plus your project can blend into the surrounding area, avoiding any unnecessary exposure. 4. Cost-Effective – Hoarding panels are a cost-effective solution that can enhance your advertising plus protect the public in one foul sweep plus you will be able to use it more than once which also saves money. 5. Stimulate Public Interest – With the right design, hoarding graphics can generate plenty of passing interest for a soon-to-be-opened attraction or development. 6. Advertising and Marketing – Using hoarding graphics in an area with high public footfall adds to brands recognition and can help generate interest in the upcoming project or something else the company wants to advertise.

The Purpose of Plastic Hoarding

The Purpose of Plastic Hoarding

By on Jan 13, 2021 in Blog |

Plastic hoardings can be seen every single day, whether to cover up building works or keep us safe from construction sites. Network Scaffold has recently expanded its services to provide both hoarding and safety decking for our established clients plus new ones. For this blog, we will share some of the ways plastic hoarding can be used in different settings. The Many Uses of Plastic Hoarding Typically a hoarding tends to serve two common purposes – to promote and for health and safety, however, there are a few more to consider – Advertising and Marketing – Hoarding is often used for advertising and marketing by companies or organisations to promote a product where there is high public footfall. Historically these hoardings are cheaper to place than a similar-sized billboard. Entice Customers – Hoardings can also attract business to a company, creating curiosity for development or attraction that is coming soon. The nature of hiding a site behind a hoarding naturally piques people’s interest and with the correct messaging can leave them awaiting the big reveal. Construction Site Hoarding – Health and safety is the main reason for having a building site employ hoarding. Separating the general public from a construction site prevents unauthorised access and improves site security. Additionally, having secure fencing along your perimeter means you can have controlled access to the site for contractors. Plastic hoarding can also be used to communicate health and safety information, providing warnings about potential hazards. This is essential to comply with on-site regulations.
