Temporary Access Tunnels

Plasloc Temporary Pedestrian Access Tunnels are bespoke to your requirements. We utilise a system scaffold to produce a safe and secure temporary structure which we then clad with our patented Plasloc boards. Alternatively, if you require a fully fire-rated system we can utilise composite panels giving up to 2 hours of fire integrity. Our access tunnels are ideal for both internal and external use, whether you need a covered walkway for an office reception to remain open while demolition works commence. Or an external facade in a retail environment? Perhaps you need a covered pedestrian linking tunnel between two adjacent buildings in a hospital setting? Whatever you need, give us a call and we will find a workable solution.

Our Tunnels give a pristine white surface which is ideal for advertising, aesthetic graphics, or just leave them original as a hygienic wipe down surface. We can also ensure your tunnel is equipped with lighting, doors or even windows.

Is site hoarding a legal requirement?

To comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, all employers and the self-employed must take reasonable steps to keep the general public safe. The implication of this is that construction sites need a protective boundary, with site hoarding being the most fitting solution.

Who is responsible for construction hoarding?

The principal contractor has responsibility for construction site hoarding. However, whether they wish to design the hoarding themselves or employ a subcontractor to do it for them is their choice.

When do construction hoardings need to be in place?

Before any construction work starts. In most cases, this is essential for complying with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015 and other relevant guidance.

How long should hoardings last?

Hoarding needs to last for as long as construction is taking place on a particular site. However, whilst the length of time will depend on the individual project circumstances, the standard acceptable lifespan of site hoarding is 10 years.

How much will my project cost?

The cost of a project will depend on the type of hoarding you require and the duration of your project. All Plasloc products are competitively priced, and we work closely with you to provide the best price for your hoarding requirements. Get in touch today for a free no-obligation quote.

How does Plasloc fit together?

All sections of Plasloc hoarding are connected with a traditional tongue and groove joint and compression lock which removes the need for any fixings such as nails and screws and reduces any cutting and drilling to limit potential damage. It also requires no ground penetration, so it can easily be installed at the start of the project and removed at the end of it.

Eco-friendly hoarding solutions across the UK

Plasloc’s core ideology is to create sustainable hired products. With over 8 million tonnes of plastic waste entering our oceans every year, we believe it is fundamental to get full use of our product's life span. When our boards do come to the end of their life, we responsibly recycle them by having them ground up and returned to the plastic industry as raw material to be either extruded back into more Plasloc boards or another uPVC product. Our recycled Plasloc patented boards are used to create temporary hoarding solutions such as office partitioning and construction hoarding, all in an effort to contribute to being an eco-friendly driven business and have a meaningful impact across the country.

Success Stories

Plasloc has successfully completed numerous high-profile, ambitious projects due to the consistent strength of our products' ability to adapt and the professional team of operatives to implement effective delivery.

Just to let you know that in Morrisons Monthly Contractors Meeting (all their main contractors) it was noted by Morrisons how impressed they was with the quality of the Plasloc external hoarding and indicated that that’s what they would like to see on all their projects that required solid external hoarding.

Terry Heath // Project Manager ISG PLC

Yesterday I was having a walk round with the architects and the client and they all commented on how good the hoarding looked. To the point the client wanted to know why after 10 years of us working at Redbull why we have not used this system before.

Simon Whittaker // Site Manager SDC Special projects

A nice email to start the day… I would like to pass on my thanks to your two operatives on site last night at Water Lane. If everyone was that efficient, tidy and helpful it would make the world of construction a lot easier.

Ryan Wilks // Site Manager RG Group

Plasloc is a great example of an innovative company, addressing and utilising the sustainability agenda as a business opportunity. By developing high quality carbon friendly products, they have capitalised on new market opportunities and increased their competitiveness.

Paul Gilbert // Manufacturing Specialist SWMA

Thanks for a job well done. I have been impressed with the product and would definitely use you guys again should the opportunity arise.

Matt Davis // Balfour Beatty Project Manager

The install team was always polite and well presented, the work was carried out with the minimal interruption to the hospital and on completion the area was left clean and tidy. The product is very well suited to the clinical needs of a hospital environment
