Plasloc’s External Hoarding System ideal for urban environments

The Plasloc External Hoarding solution is best placed in areas where digging a hole in the ground for support posts is not possible. Particularly in supermarket car parks or when a new build estate/shopping centre has a phased opening and wants to ensure the paving remains pristine. Our system works brilliantly if construction works are being carried out or equally if you need to direct the public away from an area for safety or security concerns. It is ideal for graphics and advertising and can add to the aesthetics of the area as it can be incorporated into the landscape seamlessly. It has even been approved by the Metropolitan Police for use on royal and parliamentary buildings.

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.

Envirocentric Hoarding

Sustainability and Plasloc are synonymous together, from conception through to hundreds of thousand meters of hoarding delivered, Plasloc defines the principles of deep ecology. We understand that traditional timber hoarding remains widely used as it is perceived to be a cheaper option or that the contractor uses their own labour to install. However, this is not always the case especially with the ever-growing costs of Landfill. Our eco-friendly recycled system is reusable and recyclable so no waste! Not only that Plasloc’s full-service offering means you can concentrate on the more important tasks and leave your hoarding needs in our capable experienced hands.

The patented Plasloc system is also suitable for internal hoardings and demo wall systems.

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.
