How Secure Is Your Building Site?
An unsecured building site can lead to many problems - not only will your tools and materials be at risk of theft, but any trespassers would be taking significant safety risks as sites are often fraught with danger, particularly at night.

The best way to ensure that no unfortunate incidents occur is to properly install a secure fence that is fit for purpose and greatly minimises the risk of intruders. There are a wide selection of security fencing options available depending on budget and the lifespan required and the security level required.

In the modern day, construction site fencing is essential as legislation increasingly places the emphasis on health and safety, meaning that the protection of any building site has changed beyond all recognition. Where sites were once virtually left open for people to wander around, they now require a perimeter that protects the public, prevents unauthorised access and, in the case of prestige projects, may also require public viewing panels.

A key consideration of building site fencing is the ease of assembly on site. Nowadays, the preferred method of protecting sites is by metal panels which are light enough to manually assemble, tough, anti- climb and can incorporate vision panes whilst protecting from contamination from dust and dirt. They are also durable and can be moved from job to job and can be erected quickly and easily.

In addition to metal panels, chain link mesh fencing is also popular for protecting building sites. This is woven from steel wire and is probably the most widely used of all fencing materials, available in a variety of wire gauges and chain link sizes to suit specific market applications. Chain link mesh fencing is usually supported by movable fencing blocks which enable quick installation and removal and also can be used as site entrance gates.

Chain link also comes in three finishes: heavily galvanised, PVC coated with a bright core, or for double protection, PVC coated with a galvanized wire core. Such chain link mesh fencing has long been endorsed by the Health and Safety Executive, however it doesn't work for everyone as it doesn't always offer the required screening and can be used as a climbing frame by inquisitive children.

Wooden hoarding is often the choice where a private and secure semi permanent barrier is required whilst construction work is undertaken on the site. Wooden hoarding keeps the dust and mess contained within the building site but also restricts external vision screening the site from prying eyes.
