Transporting & storing construction fences

5 reasons why it pays to invest in transport racks

Once you wrap up a construction project the next step is to dismantle the construction fences and transport them. If they're not immediately needed on another site or event, the fences go into storage. Transport racks come in handy for both transport and temporary storage alike. At first glance, these frames may appear unimpressive, but they have a number of advantages which our experts are pleased to explain below.

Loading and unloading fencing: safety first

It is generally understood that safety comes first. This is no different when loading and unloading fencing. Ensure safety at precisely this point is important. Safety regulations have been drawn up to ensure the safety of people and cargo. These regulations must be observed so that no dangerous situations arise when loading and unloading fencing.

Roel Meuldijk, safety expert for Heras Mobile, on safety when loading and unloading: “Speed is important but certainly not the most important thing; that’s safety!”

The only way to prevent accidents is by observing the safety regulations.

Optimise experience and safety with event fencing

Heras Mobile provides solutions for a multitude of events. Joep Coenen, Business Unit Manager at Heras Mobile, gives another perspective to delivering event fencing. We don’t think in terms of the product, but in terms of the ‘journey’ that the visitor makes on and around the site. This gives a surprisingly different view of fencing. Well-fitting fencing contributes to a safe major event without escalations. “Provided that you understand the needs of the guests and anticipate these,” says Joep.

Keep noticed with a customized temporary fence

Construction sites are everywhere and people don’t even seem to notice it anymore. To make a mark and let your competition know you’re working there, you can customize your city fence for example. Instead of a boring metallic product you can steal the show with your own design. Entering the construction site feels more personal now.

Instead of the usual entrance to a construction or building site you can give customers and suppliers a more personal welcome. Besides your own name plates on a fence you can also personalize banners and sliding gates to your liking.
