Adding ballast, in a sensible way to your hoarding system, greatly increases its wind resistance & is often required in order to obtain a complete temporary works design. The Safe Hoarding Ballast System is one of the most popular ways of stabilising solid steel temporary hoarding panels. It incorporates a channel at the front of the heavy-duty block tray which allows the hoarding panels to sit in. This channel removes the requirement for a thermoplastic rubber fence foot & also allows for adjustment to help your hoarding system deal with uneven ground.
Our Safe Hoarding Ballast System also incorporates a anti-lift bracket. This anti-lift bracket is welded to the heavy-duty block tray. The hoarding panels are then coupled together through this anti-lift bracket effectively locking the hoarding stabiliser & the hoarding panels together. This makes the temporary fencing system more secure as the panels cannot be removed from the stabilising system.
The Safe Hoarding Ballast System uses a single heavy-duty block tray that houses the hoarding panels at the front and onto which you can add ballast. This stabilisation system differs from the Wates Ballast Hoarding System & the Safe Base Wind Resistance System, which both use a double block tray system. The advantage of a single tray ballast system is that they are easier to install, therefore reducing labour time & costs. This makes the Safe Hoarding Ballast System a more cost effective system for stabilising a solid steel temporary fence.
Temporary works designs can be drawn up for this wind resistance system upon request. For a costing & as temporary work designs must be made site specific then please reach out to a member of the Safe Fence team with your site requirements & details.
