The Importance of Site Hoarding During the Winter Season
Site hoardings are highly durable, robust timber fences typically erected around the perimeter of demolition and construction sites. Their hard-wearing, solid structure comes with many benefits for contractors and developers who are involved with construction sites. Here’s why they’re so important:
Protects and secures your project from intruders
Site hoardings can provide security for your construction site, subsequently helping to prevent theft, vandalism and considerable financial loss. To comply with Construction Design and Management Regulations, all construction companies must ensure that unauthorised persons cannot enter the construction site. This involves installing a safe and secure perimeter and implementing suitable signage before construction work can be conducted.
RTC Fencing are able to provide your company with site hoardings to fully protect your site from thieves and vandals who look to target construction sites for tools and equipment for their own financial gain.
Ensures the safety of the general public
Site hoardings can protect the public from the activities and materials of a construction site. With the installation of site hoardings, you’ll be putting a physical barrier in between the public and the safety hazards of the construction site, including:
- Falling objects
- On-site vehicles
- Noise, dust and vibrations
- Slips and trips near pedestrian walkways
- Construction equipment
RTC Fencing provide site hoardings which align specifically with Health and Safety Executive regulations in order to protect the public. These regulations state that site boundaries are required to be physically defined with the use of suitable, secure fencing – something our site hoardings are able to provide.
We’re committed to ensuring the safety of both our clients and the general public, that’s why we always install our site hoarding efficiently, covering the entire construction site. From small spaces to large sites, RTC Fencing are dedicated to protecting the public, together with avoiding any financial losses as a result of compensation claims.
Shields your project from extreme weather
Not only does site hoarding protect the public, it also protects your project, right up to its completion. This includes shielding your site from extreme weather conditions, specifically strong winds.
It’s important that your construction materials and employees are properly protected from wind and rain. Not only does this ensure the smooth running of your project, but it also puts the safety of your workers at the forefront of the operation.
Cost-effective way of protecting your project
Site hoarding is an incredibly cost-effective way of protecting your site. Not only is it cheaper than other protection alternatives, but it can also help prevent financial losses when replacing tools or repairing damages. They’re also extremely quick and easy to install, enabling your project to get underway as soon as possible.
