Nov. 2022 - Newt Fencing installation before the temperature drops too much. No trapping will happen on this site this year ...
... but the installation in November means that Newt Trapping can take place as soon as the weather turns in the Spring.
Nov. 2022 - Great Crested Newt Mitigation Fencing installation well underway on a large infrastructure project.
Nov. 2022 - Great Crested Newt Mitigation Fencing installation. Over 2,000m installed.
Nov. 2022 - Great Crested Newt Mitigation Fencing installation, with another 14,000m to go
Although this system carries a slightly higher initial cost than Timber and Plastic, it is still the most cost effective system. Due to its quality and durability Herpetosure® Fencing reduces maintenance costs by up to 98% over Timber and Plastic systems. Its fast installation means that Herpetosure® projects meet the steepest of deadlines and avoid costly delays.
To safeguard against on-going product failure costs Herpetosure® offer their Clients product integrity guarantees across the complete Fencing Range. With zero project waste, there is no landfill cost and it is beneficial to environmental audits.
Timber and Plastic systems with a low price tag often have hidden maintenance charges and no product guarantee. The cost of using such systems can spiral after initial installation. The time delays caused by frequent system failures often have more of a cost implication than is often allowed for, making Timber and Plastic projects much more expensive in the long run. At the end of these projects 100% of the material is land filled – another large cost for consideration with a negative impact on environmental audits.
This system carries much higher initial costs than Timber and Plastic. The Herpetosure® System can withstand heavy site and Vandal damage.
Installation speed of this system is far slower than Herpetosure making it harder to hit project deadlines, risking project delays and costing more man hours. There is a high risk that this fencing will be stolen for its scrap value
Herpetosure® has an installation time far superior to that of any of its competitors, holding a record for 9337 metres of fencing including bucket traps in less than 5 days.
One of the biggest drawbacks to Timber and Plastic projects are they often struggle to hit tight deadlines.
Marginally faster to install than Timber and Plastic, but still far slower than Herpetosure®, hitting tight deadlines could be inconsistent.
Herpetosure® offers up to 30 Years UV stability and life expectancies up to 50 Years. (Herpetosure® Permanent Plus)
Timber and Plastic systems could only last a matter of months before the elements or physical damage render it ineffective and in need of repair or replacement.
Steel is at risk from the oxidising effects of the elements therefore rusting could affect its lifespan.Due to the wide variations in production quality, Lifespan cannot be truly guaranteed.
Herpetosure® Products are 100% reusable, recyclable and are made from recycled materials. Panels are monitored through a unique panel tracking system to determine when they reach the end of their lifespan, at which point they are recycled.
As well as having a negative impact on environmental and waste audits
Only worth considering for use on permanent applications Panels require a lot of cutting and shaping to accommodate the lie of the ground. This result in sharp edges and corners that are a serious Health and Safety issue potentially resulting in insurance claims and litigation.
With specifically designed options for all species, Herpetosure® has many solutions for protected species. Herpetosure® has the only completely dedicated ecological mitigation fencing range.
Timber and Plastic are an adaptation of low cost DIY products, as fencing heights increase to meet the needs of more mobile species, so too does the risk of system failure.
Galvanised Steel panels are essentially adapted building products, meaning that product ranges are limited and are unlikely to meet specific species needs.
The Herpetosure® systems are vandal and fire resistant, they can even be ran over by large motorised vehicles. Theft is highly unlikely due to depth the fencing is installed.
Timber and Plastic is highly at risk from vandal damage. Hundreds of metres can be damaged in a very short space of time. If ignited by a flame, fire could spread very quickly down the fence line.
Galvanised steel panels have high monetary value as scrap, and are therefore at high risk of theft. If driven over by motorised vehicles it is likely that permanent damage will be caused with damaged panels requiring replacement and therefore compromising licensing issues
Because Herpetosure® is a dedicated product with a dedicated range, all our products are well stocked, and due to well positioned Herpetosure® alliance partners, our expert installers are ready to react swiftly anywhere in the UK.
Despite using basic DIY products that are widely available. The long installation times can result in the main contractors being delayed with the start of the project, especially when the hibernation season is approaching
Despite using basic building products, there is potential for delay in product lead time. The extended installation times also mean that contractors are often on sites many weeks.
