The Metcalfe Fencing team were proud to have won their part on this exciting project following Wates Groups’ £14.8m appointment funded by the DEP & Government’s Priority School Building Programme 2 (PSBP2). We may be a family firm with Yorkshire roots (near Harrogate & Leeds), but our reach stretches nationwide.
Metcalfe Fencing has a legacy reaching 35 years in the fencing world which is why our expert consultation is key to success. Using service plans, safe excavation techniques, cable avoidance tools & communicating through all the right channels, we detected utilities with ease & placed the bespoke on-ground ballast system strategically along these zones.
The on ground (2.4m) steel hoarding was designed specifically for Wates Construction by SafeFence. It’s a twin tray ballast system capable of holding a varying degree of ballast to increase / vary the structural support on the temporary hoarding line where required. A factor that allows to fulfil specifications and improve wind resistance according to calcs engineered for this geo location.
All panels, posts, skirts & infills were powder coated to BS EN 13438:2005 (min 100 micron); matching the Wates Group brand colours to a T.
The (2100mm, 0.75mm gauge) galvanised steel infills offer more privacy between panels, with anti-tamper fasten mechanisms that help to make stepping the fence line on fast sloping ground a doddle.
The final result of this hoarding installation is pristine, to plan – a professional finish and ultimately: SAFE.
