SMARTPLY SITEPROTECT from MEDITE SMARTPLY is a pre-primed, time saving site hoarding solution, that can help you win those all-important sustainability ‘brownie points’ for your construction sites. The measurement of how sustainable a building project is shouldn’t necessarily be limited to the end build. The construction process itself should also be open to scrutiny with regards to its environmental credentials.
With the site hoarding often regarded only as a disposable commodity, the quality and origin of the materials used in their construction are frequently overlooked. Yet, in order to achieve a fully sustainable building project, it’s just as important to consider the provenance of the materials used for your site hoardings as it is for your final building design.
As an OSB, SITEPROTECT is made from the thinning’s of fast-growing pine and spruce trees from our very own forests in the Republic of Ireland. Pre-primed with a heavy-duty polymer, the panels only require painting and installing on site as per guidelines. So, it’s not only the environment you’re saving with SITEPROTECT, it’s your time as well.
The panels also fit within the aims of the World Wildlife Fund’s forests campaign to cut out the trade of illegal and unsustainable timber. The conservation group is working with businesses across industry sectors in order to stop the procurement of wood from poorly managed forests and aims to move towards a fully sustainable timber market in the UK by 2020.
