Construction sites are a necessary part of progress, but they can also have a significant environmental impact. One area where sustainability can be improved is in the type of hoarding used to secure the perimeter and prevent unauthorised access. Traditional plywood hoarding, while relatively inexpensive, comes with a hidden environmental cost.

At Panthera Group, we’ve developed a sustainable hoarding system, EnviroHoard™, to tackle this issue. But before we dive into our EnviroHoard™ system, let’s first look at the issues with plywood hoarding for construction sites.


Is plywood hoarding sustainable?

Construction projects often rely on plywood hoarding to secure the site and provide privacy. However, the production and disposal of plywood hoarding contributes to several environmental issues.

Large amounts of wood are needed for production, contributing to deforestation. Once used, discarded timber hoarding often ends up in landfills, taking years to decompose.

The problem with plywood construction site hoarding

There are other issues with plywood hoarding in addition to environmental concerns.

Plywood is prone to weather damage and warping, requiring frequent replacements and driving up costs for construction projects. The material can also be breached by potential intruders relatively easily, causing security concerns and leaving your construction site vulnerable.

Why does sustainable hoarding for construction matter?

The construction industry plays a crucial role in shaping our built environment, but this comes with a responsibility to combat climate change and conserve resources. By encouraging the use of renewable and recycled materials, we can minimise the environmental impact of building projects.

EnviroHoard: certified net-zero hoarding for construction

At Panthera, we’re committed to providing sustainable solutions for the construction industry. That’s why we developed EnviroHoard™, the UK’s first LCA-verified net-zero hoarding system.

EnviroHoard™ tackles construction’s environmental impact head-on. Made from 100% recycled uPVC, our hoarding panels reduce reliance on virgin resources and provide a protective boundary around the site perimeter. When used over a two-year project instead of timber hoarding, EnviroHoard™ reduces embodied carbon by approximately 70%.

This eco-friendly system is built to last: reusable and recyclable, EnviroHoard™ minimises waste throughout its lifecycle and is a ‘closed loop’ system. Furthermore, its durability and superior security surpass that offered by traditional plywood hoarding.

By choosing EnviroHoard™, construction companies can significantly reduce their environmental impact without sacrificing functionality or security. Contractors can even benefit from improved BREEAM and Considerate Contractor scoring!

Flexible and adaptable to suit the needs of your site, EnviroHoard™ comes in varying heights ranging from 2.4-3.6 metres. Utilising no-dig, low-carbon blocks (EnviroBlok), EnviroHoard™ is quick to install.

Our system is also available with extra enhancements such as security lighting and rollers designed to prevent unauthorised access. You can even incorporate company branding or graphics to display the project.
