Westgate based in Stafford launch ‘Hoardfence’, their sustainable alternative to the more traditional external timber hoarding solutions.


Westgate have launched their new reusable external hoarding solution, Hoardfence. Building upon their industry leading internal hoarding solution Hoardfast, the new Hoardfence product aims to support construction projects with an external hoarding solution where sustainability features heavily either within the contract or as part of the contractors wider commitment.

A uPVC panel solution, the system is quicker and easier to install than traditional offerings and fully reusable. Traditional based timber solutions historically end up going to landfill once work has finished, with the Hoardfence solution being reusable, it offers a different proposition reducing the need for this to be the case, and in turn contributes to a more sustainable construction project. By working in partnership with customers, Westgate has developed a panel recycling scheme (when panels reach their end of life) which generates funds and provides a mechanism for donations to be made to charities that are focused towards sustainability/community.

Head of Marketing, David Street, commented:

“The Hoardfence concept came about as a result of conversations with our customers. Our existing and recognisable internal hoarding and walling solution, Hoardfast, has been described as ‘quick and easy to install’ and customers were enquiring if it was suitable for external use. Through understanding all of the benefits that our internal solution provides to customers, we sought about developing a product that is suitable for use outdoors. By combining ease of install with the reusability of our panels, we have a system that not only reduces install time but can support in delivering sustainable targets for construction projects; something that we all agree is increasingly important to the future of construction.”

Westgate have been situated in Stafford for over 45 years and as a trusted and experienced industry expert have seen steady growth for a number of years. The business gives back in some unique ways including a recycling programme for its hoarding panels which most recently saw it partner with Marine Conservation Society both in terms of financial donation and also arranging for the Westgate team to take part in an organised beach clean.
