When it comes to hoarding installation, we provide a comprehensive, start to finish service. All construction site hoardings are built to an unrivalled standard, and our attentive customer service complements this to make us one of London’s best-loved hoarding companies. Below, we’ve run over the different ways that hoarding installation can be handled. Contact us at your earliest convenience should you need assistance finding the right solution for your project.
Your first option is dug-in timber posts, which are available in different specifications to suit the task at hand. While our standard spec has the posts at 2m centres, alterations to materials and design can let us increase the centres of the posts up to 2.8m. If you require approved designs and engineer’s calculations, these can be provided upon request.
Certain sites around Chelsea, the City of London, Hackney, Islington, Kensington, Lambeth, Southwark, Westminster, Wandsworth and Newham may benefit from freestanding hoarding installation. It’s a more modern approach which circumvents the risks associated with digging down into the ground. Hoarding companies, and ours is no exception, typically offer two different freestanding designs which we’ve detailed below.

If space is a concern and you have a scaffold in place on site, then this may be the perfect solution for your construction site hoarding. By opting for this method, hoarding companies bypass the need for digging in, or relying on concrete or ballast boxes. Instead, hoardings are directly fixed to scaffold uprights. This form of hoarding installation can establish fully enclosed walkways that are neatly designed, incorporating soffits and low level boxed sections.
Keep in mind that we will need to be in contact with your chosen scaffolding contractor before we get to work implementing your hoardings, to ensure that the design doesn’t undermine max loads and other important safety considerations.

Pankhurst Contracting Ltd has designed its own in-house capture foot mechanism, which enables our team to erect construction site hoarding up to 3.2m in height. This requires the minimum of an 80mm concrete embedment, making it suited to sites around Chelsea, the City of London, Hackney, Islington, Kensington, Lambeth, Southwark, Westminster, Wandsworth and Newham on concrete hardstandings.
An effective solution for low-light areas and those where visibility is an important factor, these hoardings feature see-through Perspex upper sections. Our standard configuration sees wood and Perspex each contribute 1.2m, for a total height of 2.4m. However, we can cut these to different sizes for a bespoke finished product. This is a popular option for tunnelled walkways around London.
