Site Hoardings are commonly defined as temporary structures of solid construction, erected on sites to:
- Shield sites from view
- Prevent unauthorised access
- Stop site destruction & theft
- Protect the public
But have you ever considered that the very fact the hoarding is solid and opaque actually makes it more likely for intruders to smash through as they immediately assume that it is hiding something of value. They might not steal anything, but you will still have to repair your hoarding once again.
And a clear hoarding can also let the natural light in thus saving you the extra costs of site lighting.
Let’s give you a real-life example.
Our client, JFE Attridge, needed to hoard off an area on a rail site. It needed to be;
- Flame retardant
- Clear (to let light in)
So we provided them with our 10mm flame retardant polycarbonate sheeting. It ticked all the required boxes and this was their awesome feedback:
“This was the perfect product for our requirement. The fact that it was clear meant the light could shine in and also meant that no one would have an interest in smashing it as they could see there was nothing worth stealing behind it”
