Hoarding Definition

The definition of a hoarding is basically a fencing system used to enclose a building site whilst construction works take place. They are typically temporary solid fence panels which are made from timber, metal or composite panels. Hoardings are installed around the perimeter of a building site and have vehicle and/or pedestrian access points. Their primary function is to keep the site secure, but many are used as temporary signage boards to keep the public aware of what’s behind them. Site hoardings are also used to maintain the privacy of the site and therefore the clients’ interests safe.
