Hoarding installation for Tesco Supermarket in Twickenham, south west London.
Hoardings Specialist Reports Demand from Supermarkets
UK hoardings manufacturer Plasloc is reporting a significant increase in sales of its internal and external hoarding screens in 'live' retail environments.
With hygiene vital to the prevention of a second wave of the new coronavirus, the Newton Abbot-based company has delivered multiple orders to three of the country's biggest supermarket chains, Tesco, Morrisons and Co-op.
Hygienic screening is coated for easy cleaning to prevent infection, and represents a cost-effective solution for achieving clinical segregation. It can be combined with signage to help retail outlets control the flow of people moving throughout a site.
Director, Leigh Matthews, explains: "Lockdown has been a hugely challenging period for the construction industry.
"Retail construction is pushing forward following lockdown and our regular involvement in the sector has seen our hoardings in demand.
"Retail projects by their nature require quick installation and dismantling to ensure there is minimal disruption to the progress of the project which is why Plasloc is turned to time and again."
The Plasloc hoarding system was originally developed as a sustainable alternative to standard hoarding, and is created using 100 per cent recycled post-consumer or post-industrial PVC-U. After use, panels are granulated and ready to be closed-loop recycled back into the manufacturing process to ensure zero waste.
