You can't haul every piece of equipment back to your warehouse at the end of the work day. Some items need to remain overnight at the construction site. Construction equipment storage is essential for safeguarding your investment. Explore these methods for secure site storage of your construction equipment.
1. Invest in Site Storage Cages
We recommend a welded mesh cage for storing construction equipment, such as power tools and safety gear. These items are vulnerable to theft because thieves can sell them for lucrative prices on the black market. Mesh storage cages with a bi-folding lid are an economical investment that you can use again and again.
2. Install Fencing
Install temporary fencing that cordons off the public from the construction site. Include signs that warn the public of the legal consequences of trespassing. Fencing serves multiple purposes; it keeps civilians out of a danger zone. It also deters vagrants from entering the zone at night. While hijacking an excavator is unlikely, they may spray graffiti or smash a bat through the cabin window.
3. Set Up a Fabric Structure
Excavators, generators, and other equipment are also at risk of environmental exposure. Construction sites naturally have billions of dust particles in the air that can get into the machines. To prevent damage from airborne particles, set up a fabric enclosure on the construction site to house your equipment.
4. Set Up Surveillance
Watch any intrusions from afar. With smart surveillance devices, you can keep an eye on the site via mobile device. Alert authorities if unauthorized personnel enter the premises. Set up cameras so that they have direct sight of the most expensive equipment.
