Enviromesh temporary perimeter systems

Posted: Friday 28th May 2010

The increasing emphasis on health and safety in the construction industry – driven by the Health and Safety Executive – has led to a number of fundamental changes in normal working practice and the development of new safety products. One of these is modular temporary fencing, which has made traditional timber hoarding and temporary chain-link fencing virtually extinct.

As a leader in safety and innovation, Enviromesh has developed temporary fencing panels in a range to suit all types of budget, from robust heavy-duty panels that are ideal where maximum re-use is essential, to lighter-duty trade panels for customers who require a more economical solution. The panels, 3.45m long and 2m high, are manufactured using an ‘anti-climb’ mesh infill according to current UK legislation HS(G)151 for enclosing construction sites using temporary fencing systems. The fusion weld system results in a high-strength joint between the horizontal and vertical tubes offering significantly longer life and durability compared to conventional mig-welding. In addition, the production process ensures that the sharp edges of the mesh are totally protected within the frame of the panel, making the panel the first of its kind to eliminate the risk of injury to users caused by dangerous mesh overhangs commonly associated with the conventional face-mounted fence panels. Standard vehicle and pedestrian gates to control site access are also available to complement the Enviromesh range.

The thermoplastic base is manufactured from 100% recycled plastic – the first plastic temporary fence base to be entirely from recycled material: other fence bases within the industry include up to 60% limestone or sand filler and are thus far from eco-friendly! The base also offers unique safety benefits in the anti-trip design and a novel handling feature that encourages correct lifting. The base weight of 18/19kg is within the current manual handling regulations.

A heavy-duty coupler is used to connect the temporary fencing panels securely using two couplers per joint located top and bottom between each panel. Anti-tamper couplers are also available.

Enviromesh temporary fencing barriers are mainly used for site demarcation and also for crowd control where directing and segregation of pedestrian traffic is necessary. All barriers are manufactured from a heavy-duty tubular frame work with either a mesh or vertical tube infill. The range is available in a pre-galvanised or pre-galvanised and polyester-coated finish.

The company also offers portable steel hoarding systems with the flexibility of a temporary fencing solution while retaining privacy and increased security. The hoarding panels 2.0m high and 2.2m wide are manufactured from either a light-gauge 0.5mm or heavy-gauge 0.7mm profiled steel sheeting.
