Protection every construction site needs

Posted on in Security

Construction sites need protection at all times but this can be difficult when your contractors have gone home, especially during extended periods of downtime. Fortunately, there are several security measures a construction management company can put in place to protect their site and avoid trespassers or vandals. Discover how to better protect your construction site with this Maltaward guide.

Security fencing

The best way to protect your site is to make it as difficult as possible for trespassers to invite themselves in. Security fencing is available in a variety of formats to suit the needs of your construction site.

Our steel palisade fencing provides industrial strength security and is weather resistant and durable. It is difficult to scale and well protected against basic tools. We can also provide close board fencing to obscure your site from view and a selection of bollard types to protect from vehicular access.


One of the best ways to deter trespassers and vandals is to install site CCTV camera security solutions. These cameras can be positioned at all entrances, exits and security weak spots to ensure constant monitoring. Any incidents that occur are recorded and passed on to the police or insurance company to aid your claim.

Our Rapid Deployment CCTV Tower Systems are ideal for construction sites and vacant properties that require remote monitoring. They come with batteries or solar panels to ensure that they remain functional at all times.

We also provide Standalone Wireless CCTV systems that can be situated on fences, buildings and posts to give unrestricted video coverage of your construction site. With 24/7 monitoring and no restrictions on how many cameras are in operation, you can deter intruders and capture any who do trespass.

SITEX Security Screens

Perhaps you are unable to block off the entire construction site with fences but you still need to protect the property you are working on. SITEX Security Screens are ideal for preventing vacant property from attracting unwanted visitors or squatters.

These screens are purpose-built to prevent access to a building and they make it next to impossible for an intruder to gain access unless they have specialist equipment.

Whether attacked by brute force or fire, our screens come in custom sizes and shapes to protect all types of doors and windows from intruders. Windows and doors are completely covered by the screens, ensuring that there are no weak spots.

Security patrols

Security patrols remain an important aspect of site protection as they provide an immediate and active response to an incident. At Maltaward, we specialise in security patrol dogs for hire. Trained to the highest level of obedience, our security patrol dogs show trained aggression to any intruders or trespassers while presenting no risk to the public.

Using a security dog and their handler makes for a faster response to a site intrusion than other defences. From open spaces to secluded spots, patrol dogs can detect hidden intruders and ensure the protection of your valuable equipment and machinery.


Security lighting ensures that your construction site or vacant property appears to be inhabited and protected. Construction sites may be more vulnerable to intrusion and vandalism if they appear secluded and dark.

Installing effective lighting helps to deter people from entering by increasing the vulnerability and uncertainty an intruder might feel but also to highlight and expose those who do. For security CCTV, lighting can assist in the event of an insurance claim to prove that your defences were breached.

Concrete barriers

Any machinery left behind on a construction site is valuable, which can make it the target of thieves. Maltaward’s concrete barriers are the perfect deterrent and obstacle to prevent unauthorised access to your construction site.

They can be easily installed and removed using our specialist HIAB vehicles and are not only great for security but also for managing site traffic to protect people from heavy-duty machinery.

I have been using Maltaward for about 12 years, mostly using their traveller eviction services. They have always been very helpful and easy to deal with. No fuss, just get the job done! More recently in my new company, I have brought them in to use utilised their vacant security services. They have worked with me to provide the correct service for our specific requirements. They have a common sense approach to everything. I really cannot recommend the team enough. They have been without a doubt the best security company I have been involved with.
