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. Get in Touch to Place Your Order If you would be interested in ordering hoarding, safety decking or scaffolding, please contact Network Scaffold Services today. We offer all of the aforementioned services to customers across Derby, Nottingham and the surrounding areas. Despite the recently announced third UK lockdown, we are classed as an essential business and will remain open and able to serve our...

What is the difference between Safety Decking and a Work Platform?

What is the difference between Safety Decking and a Work Platform?

By on Dec 30, 2020 in Blog |

Safety decking, sometimes referred to as a crash deck is meant as a temporary scaffolding platform that is used to stop falling objects during the demolition process. There are two options for working at height – a work platform or safety decking supplied by Network Scaffold. If a worker is working on safety decking, they will not fall. If they were to fall onto a fall arrest bag, the bag will be cushioned and the g force limited. The fall is not cushioned on decking and falling is still potentially dangerous. It is recommended that a falling person is not exposed to a force of more than 14g. An 80kg person falling as a deadweight from just one metre on to a safety deck that yields no more than 2cms will be exposed to a g force of 50g. The more rigid the safety deck, the greater the g force. If the deck only yields 1cm, the force is doubled to 100g. Safety Decking from Network Scaffold Services Network Scaffold has recently started supplying safety decks as an innovative fall prevention system plus a light-duty access platform. Our team of specialists have moved into the safety decking market recently with our systems being used for New Build construction sector.

The Benefits of Internal Safety Decking

By on Nov 5, 2020 in Blog |

Internal safety decking from Network Scaffold Services is a fantastic safety and loading solution for construction projects. We have always prided ourselves on the safety of our systems, making an efficient working environment for your team. Network Scaffold has recently started supplying this innovative fall prevention system and for this blog, we are going to share five benefits of using our system. Our safety decking protects site workers from falling from a height which is the number one risk for scaffolders. They also provide a loadable working platform which is regularly required to successfully complete a construction project. 5 Reasons to Choose our Safety Decking 1. Cut Installation and Dismantling by 70% – Traditional tubular birdcages are tricky to put up and take back down. Using safety decking cuts the installation time and dismantling, including reducing labour for staff and get the overall job done faster. 2. Easy Pressure on the Level They Are Built From – Decking solutions are incredibly lightweight with any pressure built up being minimal. They will also limit the weight on the level itself by lowering the amount of loading needed. Instead, you will load on the deck. 3. A Self Contained System – Internal decking systems are an entirely standalone piece of equipment that is completely self-supporting, ensuring little to no disruption to projects when being brought in and taken back out. 4. Installation Doesn’t Require Working at Height – Throughout both the installation and dismantle of decking systems your workers will never need to worry about working at height. 5. Increased Load Capacity – Internal decking increases your load capacity when coupled with regular scaffolding. Your workers will be able to get on with their job, with little risk when getting on and off the scaffold.
