The start of the new year see many new sites starting fresh projects.  The first sign that work’s are about to commence on site is Bad installation 2installing Heras Readyfence temporary fencing.  Heras Readyfence is the UK’s leading temporary site hoarding system and is the recognised name for quality products in Europe.  Erecting temporary fencing is a quick and painless task if done correctly, but here lies the problem!  Because it looks so simple, anyone thinks they can install it but this can include cutting key corners to a professional installation procedure, like the example of a bad installation in the photo where another installer had poorly installed temporary fencing meaning the customer then came direct to Heras Readyfence for expert advise and installation. If the procedures are not followed as in the Heras Readyfence installation manual then the cheapest/ quickest way to secure your site may not even stand up, Literally!!!

If you are not going to hire the professionals,  like Darfen Durafencing to install your temporary fencing for you, then Heras Readyfence provide a detailed installation guide for safety and security, Heras Readyfence can also provide detailed site specific wind loading calculations to advise on stability concerns for those site susceptible to high winds, a concern regarding stability for any Health and Safety Officer and highlighted in many news stories regarding dangerous construction sites.  The whole idea of safely securing your site in the first place is for Health and safety reasons, you don’t want people entering your site and sustaining a potential injury!  So to risk the public’s safety by not erecting your temporary fencing correctly in the first place and your demarcation fencing actually causing injury is ludicrous, some firms have even been fined when members of the public have been struck with falling fencing/protruding objects.

Heras Readyfence have a reputation for quality products and fantastic customer support, that’s why Darfen would only ever recommend using Heras Readyfence professional systems over other cheaper and potentially unsafe imitation products that are normally supplied with thinner / weaker panels, fewer clips and missing back struts etc.
