 Portable Traffic Control Lights

D & P Fencing Contractors are also able to provide traffic control on non-RMS roads using our two portable traffic lights. The use of these traffic lights is most suited to roads where the traffic volume is deemed to be low by a controller holding the minimum qualification of Select/Modify Traffic Control (Red Card). We possess all manner of RMS compliant traffic signs that can be used in conjunction with this plant.

Orteco Hydraulic Pile Driver

The Orteco was recently purchased in 2014 to help streamline our fencing operations. The Orteco can be used to both drive and extract posts on all manner of safety barrier fencing except wire rope. The Orteco features a unique percussion driving system, where the post is driven down with a vibrating plate as opposed to being thumped into position, which is much safer. We transport the Orteco on our tipper truck.
