When an event or construction project wraps up the time comes to ready the fencing for transportation. 

Stillages come in handy for both transport and temporary storage alike. At first glance, the stillages may appear unimpressive, but they have a number of advantages which our experts are pleased to explain below.

Space Saving

Stillages can save you a lot of space during transport and storage of temporary fencing panels. Depending on the frame, all of the panels can be neatly stacked either vertically or horizontally. The racks can also be stacked on top of each other so you can transport and store a large number of construction fence panels in a small area.

Order & Overview

Stillages are great if you want to keep your storage area tidy. Fence panels stacked up in neat, orderly rows not only make a professional impression visually, they also provide an easy overview of your stock. Each stillage can take 35 panels. Knowing this makes it easy to figure out how many panels you have at hand.

Time Saving

Stillages make loading and unloading temporary fences more efficient because they are faster and easier to work with when stored systematically. If your fence panels are stored in stillages you can use a forklift truck to handle a whole unit at a time. This way you can load large numbers of construction fence panels onto a truck in no time.

Stability & Load Security

Stability during transport is key to prevent damage. Stillages ensure temporary fence panels are stable and cannot slide around. By transporting loose construction fence panels that can slide around in the back of your van, not only are you risking damage or loss of inventory, you also pose a danger on the road.

Longer Service Life

By storing and transporting your fences in stillages you can avoid them getting damaged. The forklift truck lifts the stillage without coming into contact with the fence panels at all. The frame of the stillage provides stability. Without a stillage, you run the risk of the fence tubes getting bent or, in the worst case, breaking or getting dented on the side. Effective storage and transport in a rack can go a long way to extending the life of your fence panels.
