The role of Heras Steelhoard on construction sites

A construction site is a dynamic location. Safety is therefore an important factor. For instance, you have to deal with theft and vandalism, but also passers-by who simply want to glimpse the construction site. For these reasons, you may want to create privacy, especially if there are many valuable items on the construction site. Heras Steelhoard is then the perfect solution! We tell you all about it in this blog article.


What is Heras Steelhoard?

Heras Steelhoard is a robust metal hoarding system, consisting of a unique set of individual components. It needs to be assembled on-site to produce a continuous and seamless hoarding façade. 

Crafted from high-quality steel, these solid fence panels offer durability, resilience, and adaptability to diverse construction settings. With modular construction, they can be easily assembled, dismantled, and reconfigured as per project requirements, making them a flexible solution for temporary site enclosure.

Enhancing security and safety with Steelhoard

Safety is the cornerstone of any construction project. The continuous system can reach up to 2.4 metres high and its posts and fixings are hidden on the inside. Heras Steelhoard therefore acts as a visible barrier, delineating the construction site from the surrounding areas. 

At the same time, it is difficult to climb over the metal hoarding panels. By restricting unauthorised access, it mitigates the risk of accidents, theft, and vandalism, thus ensuring a safer working environment for workers and protecting valuable equipment and materials. 


A flexible metal hoarding system

The Heras Steelhoard system has been designed to offer the widest range of options offering temporary perimeter solutions for any situation encountered on site. What features make it so flexible?

  • Any shape of your site boundary can be accommodated;
  • The framework can be built to any desired height (usually 2m/2.4m);
  • The metal hoarding system can accommodate uneven ground;
  • For the installation on-ground or in-ground you use the same framework.

Because of these advantages, you can use the Heras Steelhoard system for basically any construction site. This also makes it another good investment, as you can use the metal hoarding panels on multiple projects.


Environmental considerations

Sustainability is becoming increasingly important, including the construction sector. With Heras Steelhoard, you contribute to sustainability at your temporary site. Construction activities often entail environmental implications, ranging from noise pollution to dust emissions. Heras Steelhoard, with its solid construction, helps contain these environmental nuisances within the site boundaries, minimising their impact on the surrounding areas and communities. 

Environmental sustainability is clearly a major priority to responsible companies who are serious about their green footprint. Recyclability is also one of Steelhoard's advantages. 100% of the components are fully recyclable at the end of their useful life. 

Additionally, the metal hoarding system can be re-used 10 times or more due to its unique design. Steelhoard’s reusability contributes to sustainable construction practices, aligning with the growing emphasis on eco-friendly solutions in the industry.
