Why switch to Heras Steelhoard?

Many of you will be familiar with steel hoarding in the construction market and may think they are all very similar, carrying out the same function. You might be using timber hoardings, flat fascias with graphics or on ground systems. Once installed they look similar and initially price-wise there isn’t much between them however Steelhoard has a number of unique features that make it more cost-effective, adaptable, and sustainable than any other system on the market. In short terms: Steelhoard will save you money. In this blog, I hope to convey the benefits so you get the right knowledge about the advantages of the world’s most sustainable hoarding system.

Why is Steelhoard different to other hoarding systems on the market?

Unlike other hoarding systems Steelhoard is supplied in individual component form as a flatpack and is then fabricated on site. This creates numerous advantages with the ultimate aim to be able to increase the lifespan of the components which will then increase efficiency whilst improving sustainability and most importantly to save you money.

The heavy duty components are delivered to site and a framework is built an elevation at a time. Once the framework is complete sheets are then inserted between the continuous top and bottom rails and the result is clean continuous elevations uninterrupted by posts or infill strips. Watch here how the steel hoarding is installed:
