Eagle Rock

WARNING

Unlike most companies installing Hoardings, Eagle Rock Hoardings does not rely on connections to 10mm plasterboard ceiling as a structural connection point. Why? Because it is a dangerous construction method.
 
Ask yourself one question: Can a hoarding connected to only 10mm plaster and maybe light tin frame by only a screw BE SAFE?  Answer: NO!
 
It is an outdated and dangerous method of hoarding construction.
 
Myth
  • A Form 16 cannot be issued by a tradesperson or builder as a Structural Certificate
Truth
  • Structural Engineers will not certify a hoarding  connected to plaster ceiling unless:
    • The hoarding company has mislead the Engineer or;
    • The Engineer does not understand the requirements of the AS 4687 (Australian Standards for Hoardings)
Facts
  • Seek out and review a plan of any Hoarding that claims Structural Engineer's Certification, now cast your eye over how the hoarding is secured at the top.
  • Plans detailing a construction method of plaster connected hoardings most always leave out the ceiling connection detail, why, because the hoarding company is aware it will never pass a competent Structural Engineer's Certification.
 
Protect the public, ask the question... Is the hoarding safe?
