What is Hoardfast?
Hoardfast is a range of internal screening systems that allow for rapid segregation in a range of commercial settings such as hospitals, offices, retail outlets, factories and airports. Hoardfast PVC is a unique system in that it can be used and installed with a number of Westgate support options. The equal foot is by far the quickest of these to install and allows the system to be a self-supporting free standing partition. Incidentally, our most popular PVC panel is fast becoming the industry standard for creating free standing internal site offices and welfare spaces for inner city office fit out projects.
What does equal foot mean?
The term equal foot is derived from the fact that the foot protrudes an equal amount of 200mm either side of the panel once installed. The foot itself is slotted directly into the inside of the panel as detailed below:
Each support foot is fitted with a rubber pad to prevent movement once the partition is installed, for complete safety and security.
When is it used?
This solution is regularly used when there is the need to quickly erect a wall or when there are quick turnaround phased works; requiring the partition to be erected, taken down and re-erected on a few occasions. The Hoardfast PVC panel system with the equal foot support is an incredibly flexible and convenient solution to use as work progresses.
It is important to highlight that although this support system is quick to install it is not recommended for high traffic areas or where crowd loading is a requirement. For these instances, Westgate Site Segregation can offer two options: an offset weighted foot or Westgate’s unique Universal system, both of which can be configured with a range of between 1-3 weights per foot. These weighted support systems can then be placed at your preferred configuration, i.e. every panel, every other panel. This allows for a completely bespoke build based on your stability requirements.
