4 questions you should ask when choosing temporary external hoarding systems

If you’re in need of an external hoarding system for your next project then you will be wanting something that is quick to assemble/dismantle, safe for your employees/the public and provide a secure working area that intruders can’t access; without leaving a mark on the environment. To ensure you are operating within these parameters it could be worth asking yourself the following questions first.

What uses are there for temporary external hoarding systems?

Temporary external hoarding systems have a multitude of uses across the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors and their primary use is for defining clear boundaries to ensure site boundaries are firmly established to any onlookers. Hoarding can also provide a layer of security & privacy to those inside the boundary but can also act a vector of separation between working areas within the hoarding. For instance, separating two teams within a work site.

Is planning permission required for external hoarding systems?

In most instances, planning permission is not required for external hoarding systems. This is because hoarding is generally implemented in the interest of the local residents surrounding work sites. It’s meant to benefit them and not cause a problem. However, with that said we encourage you to check with the local council you are operating in as rules can differ from on authority to the next.
