Hoarding Boards and Construction Signage

Construction sites can be busy places packed full of vehicles and machinery, so good signage is vital for safety and the smooth running of the site.

All types of information need to be conveyed on a construction site, but this isn’t always easy. The sheer number of people and the noise associated with construction works can be a major barrier to communicating clear messages.

Well-designed construction site signs can make a real difference to the way in which a site runs and, don’t forget, it’s a legal requirement for these to be displayed

Why Do You Need Construction Site Signs?

There are a number of key factors that inform the need for construction site signs and these are:

  • Safety: Construction sites are hazardous environments, so safety needs to be a priority. Warning signs across the site can deliver constant reminders of hazards such as PPE requirements and Wet Floor warning signs. 
  • Information: It’s important that visitors to a construction site know as much as possible about their environment. And construction site signs can help them achieve this. Signs that indicate where site offices are can help to direct visitors and prohibition signs such as No Entry ones ensure that people keep to the correct areas. 
  • Increased Efficiency: Having all the relevant site information readily displayed can reduce time delays and accidents, providing a boost to efficiency and ensuring projects get finished on time.

Construction Site Signs

When choosing your construction site signage, it is important that you keep in mind two key things:

  • Visibility: If your signs are not visible then they are not going to be able to convey their information. Therefore, you need to make sure that they are sized correctly, all written information is easy to read and that your signs are positioned in an area which gives them maximum coverage. 
  • Durability: Construction sites are exposed to two testing conditions: the weather and intensive activity. Both of these conditions can have a major impact on the condition of your signage. So, depending on the time of year and intensity of construction work, you will need to choose your materials carefully. Metal signage, for example, will be much more durable in the winter than Correx.
