How to deal with graffiti tagging on construction hoarding

As marketers, we spend a considerable amount of time strategizing our marketing messages and the appearance of our brand. In the construction industry, construction hoarding plays an important role in communicating advertising messages and helps to consolidate a professional brand. As any outdoor advertising, construction hoarding can be vulnerable to elements out of our control. In this article, we will focus on graffiti tagging and strategies to help prevent and mitigate its effects on the look of the hoarding.

Incorporate public art into your hoarding graphics
Our experience has shown that public art gets tagged less often than marketing messages. To prevent unsightly graffiti, dedicate more space to public art and reserve a smaller portion to advertising messages. For example, in the City of Toronto, 50% of construction hoarding needs to be used for community art if it is on part of the public right of way. For developers, this represents an opportunity to partner with local artists and beautify the city streets. If you are interested in learning more about the PATCH project read our blog Bridging Business And Culture Through Public Art. What better way to showcase public art, prevent graffiti tagging and inform residents of the new development?

Use special anti-graffiti laminate over printed graphics
Anti-graffiti laminate can be applied directly on top of the printed graphics to facilitate easy cleaning. Once the laminate is applied, graffiti can be easily and quickly removed from the Greenloc panels. There is no need to replace the panels or re-print the graphics. The anti-graffiti laminate is an efficient solution if your hoarding is located in a high-traffic area that makes the enclosure more vulnerable to tagging.

How to make the most out of your construction hoarding during the COVID-19 pandemic


In the construction industry, many developers had to rethink their operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although some construction projects may temporarily slow down, sites across Canada are still enclosed with construction hoarding. The temporary wall remains an essential component to maintain site safety and keep communication lines open with workers and the public. Focusing on the design aspect, we have put together a few tactics to help maximize the exposure of your construction hoarding during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Channel for positive messages
To maintain your hoarding, you may opt to rethink your advertising and communications strategies. In challenging times, developers can stay relevant and engage with the community by devoting more space to public art instead of marketing messages. Leverage your hoarding space to bring some positivity in the community with encouraging messages and positive quotes.


Channel for safety messages
If workers are present on site, hoarding can be an excellent channel to communicate and reinforce safety messages. Vinyl graphics with COVID-19 health and safety practices can be applied directly to the Greenloc panels to ensure that everyone on site is aware of the regulations. As the situation changes day by day, messages can be easily interchanged as frequently as needed.


Although some projects may slow down, construction hoarding remains an essential component that can be leveraged to maintain effective communications. Developers have the opportunity to demonstrate a proactive attitude and engage with the community and workers.
