3 Things A Construction Manager Needs to Know About Plywood Hoarding

Plywood hoarding is used to enclose construction sites and protect the public from dangers such as falling objects, deep holes, and heavy construction equipment moving about. The standard size of plywood hoarding panels is 4ft by 8 ft.

In downtown neighbourhoods, where there are usually many developments underway, plywood hoardings are a common sight. Greenloc panels can improve the appearance and help with sound dampening.

Here are three key things a construction manager needs to know about construction hoarding:

SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT – Each panel of construction hoarding must be securely mounted to a structure such as a scaffold, or installed into the ground. If panels are not securely attached they are at risk of flying off during wind storms and injuring workers or passersby or causing property damage. Check your hoarding panels frequently to ensure they are secure and fix any loose panels as a matter of urgency.


IT’S A TERRIFIC MARKETING TOOL – Construction hoarding provides a blank canvass for promoting your development, displaying public art, and enhancing your brand. Be sure to optimize this powerful marketing tool by influencing prospects right where they live and work. With a bit of imagination and the right hoarding graphics, you can transform construction hoardings from being purely utilitarian and blah, to something extraordinary.
