Hoarding VS Mesh Fencing

When it comes to physical security systems, there are two popular options: hoarding fencing and mesh fencing.

Ensuring that your business premises are secure is of the utmost importance, no matter what your industry. Both hoarding and mesh fencing has their advantages, and each has its ideal environment in which they provide the best protection for people and assets.

Uncover the difference between both fencing systems, and the environments in which they work best. Discover what options CLD Systems can offer your business to provide a defined and secure perimeter.

Hoarding Fencing

Ideal for construction sites and temporary security needs, hoarding fencing is also known as site hoarding or construction hoarding.

It is very commonly used during construction projects and for temporary security requirements. This type of fencing creates a solid and impermeable barrier that also offers the highest level of privacy, thus acting as a deterrent against unauthorised access.

Hoarding acts as a visual screen to shield construction activities from public view and creates a safe environment for workers. A robust and durable solution that is ideal for projects of all lengths, hoarding fencing ensures the protection of assets, equipment, and people within a designated area, as well as privacy.


CLD’s HoardSafe is a premium hoarding fencing system designed to meet the needs of construction sites and temporary security applications and environments. This option offers high security and privacy for your business premises or construction site.
