Fit out contractors who are working on live refurbishment projects can benefit from Westgate’s quality hoarding, known in the industry as Hoardfast.
Not only does our hoarding look good, it also performs at speed to cope with the necessary demands of your site. Here at Westgate we work closely with every site to ensure that the hoarding works for you, exactly how you want it.
Whether it’s in retail, hospitals, offices or airports, Westgate’s Hoardfast can adapt to the changing nature of your contractor needs.
Hoarding benefits for contractors
Easy and straightforward to install
The quick installation of our hoarding is one of the main benefits making it a completely convenient fit out solution. It can be erected by unskilled labour with no finishing required, meaning no speciality training needs to be given. What’s more, it can be taken down with minimal fixing and re-erected again for use in phased works as your requirements change. The installation is virtually dust-free to keep mess and disruption to a minimum. The Hoarding is also used to create site offices and welfare spaces for a fast site setup.
Next day dispatch and collection
Our hoarding is available for next day off the shelf dispatch and collection which significantly reduces site holdups at the beginning and the end of projects. We appreciate that a lot of projects will have tight turnaround times with strict deadlines which is why we provide you with your hoarding on site when you need it, including out of hours delivery.
Fire & sound rated options available
If the nature of the project or the environment demands it, our hoarding range includes fire and sound rated panel options. Fire rated panels are tested to BS 476-22 and LPS 1208 surface spread of flame to 476-687 class ‘0’, offering up to 60 minutes fire protection. Westgate’s sound reduction panels reduce noise on average by 34dB but depending on frequency can be much higher than this.
If your project requires it Westgate have the capacity to cut this steel panel range to size before packing and dispatching them to you.
Floor-to-ceiling or free standing screen options available
Westgate’s panel heights range between 1.125m up to 5m, and can therefore be used as either a fixed floor-to-ceiling seal or when using our universal support systems as a freestanding solution (up to a maximum height of 2.7m). When opting for the free standing solution there are a range of feet available, from the popular freestanding equal foot to the unique universal weighted system that holds up to 3 x 16kg weights per foot.
Options to hire or purchase
Westgate’s Hoarding is a cost-effective solution because it is available to purchase or hire depending on your specific project requirements, and Westgate will always work out the most cost effective way for you. Westgate’s graded panel process means that there are a range of lower grade panels available for rent, further helping to reduce costs on your project.
