How temporary fencing is a cost-effective solution to prevent vandalism, theft, trespassing, and squatting
Temporary fencing is a quick and easy way to protect your property, land, or building or construction site. Currently, statistics show that 1 in 5 building sites have an instance of vandalism weekly, and also that theft and other destructive vandalism is costing the construction industry more than £1 million per day. Installing our concrete barriers, or our Heras temporary fencing or steel hoarding, can be a cost-effective deterrent to any potential vandalism, theft, trespassing, or squatting.
Construction and building sites can be very appealing to thieves, as tools, machinery, materials, and more can be worth a great deal of money. There's also the additional possibility that the building site in question can provide them with additional break-in routes to adjacent properties, therefore putting other people's property at risk of theft or damage. Our fencing comes complete with heavy-duty anti-climb options, as well as netting and more in order to reduce visibility, and overall prohibit access.
Ensuring the protection of your site, equipment, or property by investing in securing it with fencing is a more cost-effective solution in the long term. Alongside saving money, installing temporary fencing also protects the public from possible danger or injury, by preventing unaware pedestrians from walking onto the site, or children playing there. If accidental public interference or trespassing is a potential issue, say for instance the site or property is near a main road or high street, then installing any of our fencing is absolutely recommended in order to prevent this.
One possible result of not installing security fencing on your property or site is that it becomes vulnerable to squatters and travellers. Since squatting in a non-residential property isn't a criminal offence, it's important that you take preventative measures to ensure squatters and trespassers are unable to access the site in the first place. Another incentive to ensure that your vacant property or site is secure is the fact that trespassers can sue landlords if they sustain an injury in their property, whether they were there illegally or not.
Overall, the costs of hiring temporary fencing are incredibly minimal compared to the potential costs of theft, vandalism, and other possible damage you leave your site or property open to without sufficient security. To further minimise potential costs, we here at Secure Empty Property also aim to measure, fit, deploy, and install the temporary security fencing of your choice within 24 hours of contacting us. Our fencing can also come complete with lockable gates, traffic barriers, and more, and can even be painted in your company colours or feature your company logo.
