Having proper security in place on construction sites is essential to ensure you protect your valuable assets.
Whilst no solution is 100% foolproof, there are 3 things you can do to ensure your site is protected against damage, theft and vandalism.
Construction sites that are not secured adequately can be left open to theft, causing headaches and costly project delays while replacement components or equipment are located. Vandalism in particular can cause unnecessary drama for you and your team, with damage such as:
- Stolen tools
- Broken windows
- Stolen supplies and construction materials
- Smashed fixtures and ceramic items
- Trashed sites
This can delay the job and cost you and your client money – so make sure you have the right security in place for your construction site.
Ensure your temporary fence is good quality
Construction fencing panels from different brands and stores might look the same but if you are serious about security, you need to look for a quality product.
Investing a little more at the outset will give you peace of mind that your fence is hard to break, damage or bend. Choosing a rock bottom price will probably mean you end up with rock bottom quality. Do your research and buy construction fencing panels that are well made and built to last.
Our Fortress Fencing branded construction fencing panels are a wise choice because they are well made and tough enough to be installed and packed down repeatedly without much damage.
Although its tempting to hire temporary fencing as it seems cheaper at the outset, once you’ve bought and used your fence multiple times on different jobs, it will pay for itself. This makes buying new, high quality panels a better solution than hire in the long run.
Other security measures for your construction site
When you install your temporary construction fencing, you might like to add a good padlock and security chain around the front gates or any potential entry points. Small items that can be carried away easily such as power tools, hand tools and building supplies are very tempting for vandals, so locking your site at the end of every workday is critical. Plus, if you have to leave any tools on site, make sure they are locked away in a heavy duty storage box such as a lockable site box. These heavy duty steel boxes designed to be easily moved around site and are ideal for storing tools, equipment or anything else that needs security from theft as well as protection from dust and dirt.
At the more serious end of the scale, if you weigh up the value of your job and the potential cost for theft and vandalism, it might well be worth investing in security cameras.
At the very least, signs indicating that security cameras are installed can act as a good deterrent for unsavory characters.
Taking these precautions around your site will pay dividends in the long run. If you need to secure your site properly and your construction fencing panels just aren’t cutting it, get in touch Fortress Fencing for a fast quote on quality fence panels.
