Stabilize Job-Site Fencing With OxBlock Fence Bases
Kick Start Construction Safety With a SONCO Partnership
Construction and facility managers know that the next accident could be just around the corner. If compliance and safety distractions are slowing down your job site, SONCO product innovation boosts worksite performance.
New-Age Fence Accessories Elevate Safety & Productivity
Do 20 percent of your responsibilities require 80 percemnt of your attention? Construction safety managers can’t afford to spend time on recurring problems like unstable fencing, OSHA citations and equipment-caused accidents. SONCO customers need solutions to these persistent problems, and our product engineers have delivered. SONCO’s Versa Fence safety signage and fence stability products take common worksite safety issues off your plate — so you have time to manage unforeseen challenges.
Construction Safety Problems & SONCO Solutions
Work zone safety has many dimensions, and SONCO’s construction safety equipment solves many of the most common job-site safety problems. Common hazards and SONCO solutions include:
The Problem: Unstable Temporary Fencing
Buffeted by high winds and exposed to storms, crowds, trucks and heavy equipment, construction fences take a beating. Set fence panels up on slopes or unlevel ground and your perimeter stability is at risk. Add bulky concrete blocks or sandbags as temp fence ballast, and you have a mess on your hands.
SONCO’s Solution: New Age Fence Stands & Braces
SONCO’s line of temp fence bases is called “new age” for a reason. They are revolutionary in their design and application! Taking the place of concrete blocks and sandbags, these bases provide comparable weight with better stability, easier deployment and longer lifespan.
- Hi-Viz OxStand: 12” x 36” low-profile polyethylene stand
- Hi-Viz BigFoot: 33 lbs. & overlays standard 18” x 36” panel stands
- Hi-Viz OxBlock: 52 lbs. & 100% recyclable
- Temp Fence Panel Brace: Angled 2-bend brace support
Missing Compliance Signage
Safety signage effectively communicates warnings to employees and passersby. Popular sign messages include:
- Instruction about personal safety equipment
- Details about safety best practices
- Information about area hazards
Messages detailed on several small signs are easily lost, damaged or covered up, and missing or improperly displayed signs could leave you open to citations, fines or worse.
SONCO’s Solution: Custom-Printed Safety Screens
Combine safety messaging in one easy-to-read sign and avoid non-compliance. SONCO’s OSHA safety screens include all required messages and get rid of the need for a battery of individual fence signs. Consult with our in-house designers to print a customized screen with your company policies and logo. Post safety screens on temp fence panels at work-zone entrances to ensure workers and guests follow designated practices.
Foot traffic and vehicles often share the same entry points and pathways at a construction site. In such crowded areas, a temp fence stand or strut base creates an unseen tripping hazard.
SONCO’s Solution: High Visibility & Low-Profile Fence Bases
New-age bases serve double duty in your temp fence line-up. The heavier weight or larger profile of our OxBlock and BigFoot bases stabilizes your perimeter fence. The bright safety orange and yellow striping catches the eye of passing foot traffic to minimize tripping and improve construction safety. Molded from OSHA orange polyethylene, OxStands feature a low-profile base that is seen in all conditions.
