Construction hoarding is built around the perimeter of a construction site in order conceal them from view and prevent unauthorised access. Set up temporarily until work on site has been completed, construction site hoarding is an essential requirement for keeping site workers, visitors and the general public safe, and for complying with health and safety legislation. However, it can also provide protection against theft and vandalism, working as part of a site’s security system.
In addition to the points outlined above, site hoarding has the following uses:
Hoarding construction is available in a variety of materials; steel hoarding and timber hoarding being two of the most commonly used types. Here at Plasloc, however, we use our patented PVC-U hoarding system. Highly durable and requiring no ground penetration because it’s an interlocking system, it’s the perfect accompaniment to help any construction project progress.
If you’re trying to decide which type of hoarding is right for a particular project, you should ask think about these four considerations when choosing temporary hoarding.
The cost of construction hoarding is affected by a variety of factors, including but not limited to:
Here at Plasloc, our low maintenance PVC-U construction hoarding is priced very competitively, to help meet any budgetary requirements. It’s also built from 100% post-consumer or post-industrial recycled PVC-U and can be re-used before it is fully recycled. Therefore, it offers a range of excellent environmental benefits too.
In certain cases, it will require planning permission. However, this is usually in the case of advertising hoardings. Specifically, advertising hoardings that do not qualify for what is known as ‘deemed consent’ will require planning permission from the local authority.
For more information on this, we have an informative blog available that covers planning permission for advertising hoarding.
