The Importance of Construction Site Security Fencing
Enhancing Safety and Protection for your Site
Construction sites around the world are bustling centres of activity, housing valuable equipment, materials, and machinery. This atmosphere also entails various risks inherent to such environments, making it crucial to prioritise the protection of these sites and everything within them.
Nonetheless, it is equally important to ensure the safety of the public surrounding these construction zones. An effective solution to mitigate these risks and protect assets is by erecting robust and durable construction site security fencing and access points. CLD Physical Security Systems continues to be committed to providing tailored security solutions for construction sites, including both permanent and temporary fencing options for hire and purchase, ensuring the highest levels of security and safety.
Temporary Construction Fencing
Even when carefully planned, construction projects can last for varied amounts of time, from a couple of months through to multiple years. It is important that security fencing can adapt throughout the different stages of construction, with the ability to move fencing, extend it, or shorten the perimeter.
Available in both permanent and temporary solutions, our security fencing can adapt to each stage of the construction project, ensuring continuous protection.
Often the most popular choice for construction sites and projects, we offer a selection of fencing and gates in both permanent and temporary options, resulting in a more versatile and cost-effective approach. Through this approach, you receive top-quality high-security features in a temporary format. Easily installed and removed as per your project’s requirements, our fencing and gates are durable, weather resistant, and adaptable.
Installation of Construction Fencing
Our innovative temporary physical security base, FenceSafe, enables the installation of security fencing on a temporary basis. This installation option offers zero-ground strike panels that are ballasted up to 200kg, resulting in a stronger and more reliable barrier than those of industry alternatives.
Construction Site Projects
CLD Physical Security Systems has provided construction site fencing, hoarding and access control to various projects up and down the UK, and globally. Our security fencing provided a clear deterrence of unauthorised access, prevents the theft of materials and equipment, as well as providing safety for workers and the public.
Security Fencing to Rent or Hire
Purchase or Hire our Fencing
Security fencing is required for almost every construction project, both short-term and long-term, however, many businesses only require it for a set amount of time.
This is why the ability to rent or hire CLD Systems’ temporary products is a valuable advantage.
The use of our rental products eliminates the need for long-term investment, whilst ensuring optimal site security during the various phases of construction.
For longer-term projects or those with a consistent security demand, purchasing security fencing may be a more beneficial option, in terms of finances and availability. Our fencing options are all built to last, as they are durable and weather resistant. Designed to withstand time and offer longstanding protection.
Hire or Purchase: Making the right choice
When considering whether to rent or buy your construction site fencing, it’s important to define specifics regarding your project. This will then help to determine which option meets your specific requirements.
For short-term projects, such as renovations or small-scale construction, hiring security fencing may be more cost-effective, however, long-term projects may benefit from the investment in purchasing security fencing, providing continuous protection throughout the construction phase.
Temporary fencing hire allows for budget flexibility as it eliminates the upfront costs associated with purchasing. It can be a viable option for projects with limited budgets, however, for projects with a long-term outlook, purchasing security fencing ensures a return on investment over time.
Customisation and Adaptability
If customisation or specific features are required, purchasing security fencing could offer greater flexibility. Customisable options can be tailored to the unique needs of the construction site; however, our temporary fencing options can be altered as the project progresses. Temporary fencing or site hoarding can be replaced with a more permanent security fencing solution.
The Need for Construction Site Security Fencing
Deterrence of unauthorised access
Construction sites are vulnerable to trespassing, meaning it is vital that security measures are implemented that not only deter unauthorised personnel but also make attempting to access the site more difficult. Security fencing acts as a strong deterrent and effectively discourages intruders from attempting to breach the site. Our various options for fencing act as a visible barrier, as well as a physical barrier.
Preventing Equipment and Materials Theft
The theft of valuable equipment and materials is a significant concern for the construction industry. Security fencing helps to prevent premeditated and opportunistic theft by creating a physical barrier that is difficult to breach. By restricting access points to the site, and introducing anti-climb fencing, our fencing solutions create an additional layer of protection for your construction site.
Enhanced Safety for Workers and the Public
From busy cities to rural locations, construction sites are dangerous places for the public due to the heavy machinery and potentially hazardous materials present. By implementing security fencing, a safe and defined perimeter is created, protecting workers from accidental intrusion and ensuring the public remains a safe distance away from the site, reducing the exposure to risk and therefore the potential for accidents.
