Discover the advantages of Steelhoard Hoarding solutions from Darfen. Hire or buy to protect the perimeter of any work site requiring temporary fencing.

Darfen Steelhoard is a quality re-usable temporary hoarding system which we introduced to the market over 15years ago. We were the first company in the UK to introduce steel hoarding to the fencing industry and it is the only system on the market which has been tested and proven to withstand wind speeds of up to 50mph. The system can however be adapted to withstand winds of up to 80mph. Darfen Steelhoard is available to hire or buy. So whether you are conducting a one-off project, or will be using the system site after site, we have the right solution for you.


  • Cost Effective and environmentally friendly: Steelhoard is a cost effective temporary hoarding solution, the system is low cost and re-useable (with the exception of the ground sockets) unlike traditional timber systems.
  • Boost corporate image: The most prestigious and attractive system due to its uninterrupted outer face giving a continuous flowing appearance, all fixings are concealed within the compound.
  • Minimal storage and space efficient: Between sites components easily stack, store and transport. On site no backstays or ballast are required maximising your space within a compound.
  • Easy Management: Darfen can take all the hassle out of organising compound installation and relocation, with one phone call we will install your compound within days, anywhere in the country.  At the end of the job we can dismantle and either re-locate your hoarding or store it for you until next required.
  • Safe in Situ: Wind tested and crowd loaded system gives peace of mind.
  • Safe to install: All components fall within current manual handling legislation.
  • Longevity: The robust specification and polyester coated hoarding sheets have been proven to last well over 10 years, given fair “wear and tear”.
