Robust Ultraspan hoardings installed at RAF Lossiemouth

Our hoardings are creating a secure building site within the RAF base at Lossiemouth in the north of Scotland.

The Kwik-Klik / Ecogenik team has installed 410 linear metres of Ultraspan hoarding at RAF Lossiemouth, the RAF's largest fast jet base.

A new mess building complex and accommodation quarters will be built within a secure building site within the extensive airforce base in Morayshire in the north of Scotland.

A feature of the hoarding is the high strength fixings.  The 2.5 metre high hoardings have been wind-tested to withstand the strong winds of the coastal location and they will be used for the duration of the 2-year project. Vertical supports set back from the panels are concreted into the ground using plastic sleeves, this will dramatically speed up the dismantling process at the end of the project.

The main contractors are Hewlett and Debut, the specialist division of Bovis Lendlease which deals exclusively with Ministry of Defence projects.

The grey Ultraspan panels used are a good match for the traditional grey used by the RAF on aircraft and vehicles. Click on the photo for a closer look.

Kwik-Klik MD, Tony Doherty said "Our hoardings system experience at Dublin Airport's T2 meant we were ideally placed to advise on this project. We have used a different system which was more suitable to the terrain and to the wind-resistance levels needed.

"It is also a good example of how our systems are used throughout the UK, from north and central Scotland to Cornwall and the South East and everywhere in between."
