Herpetosure has grown to be the UK’s leading and most recognisable brand in ecological fencing products and contracting. The Herpetosure fencing system was developed in 2004 and became available in 2005 with the aim of providing a recyclable, reusable and robust alternative to existing newt fencing, snake fencing, reptile fencing and water vole fencing on the market.
The Herpetosure fencing system came into being as the result of several years’ experience in and hundreds of kilometres of installing amphibian fencing from other suppliers.
Herpetosure newt fencing was developed with the benefit of hindsight and the result was a product that resolved every failing in the timber and plastic newt fencing system; It can be installed up to 10 times faster than alternative systems, it is vandal resistant, fire retardant, robust enough to be driven over by vehicles, it produces zero product waste, it is derived from recycled material and is 100% recyclable, its product integrity is guaranteed to stand up to the elements, it protects against breaches of licence and reduces on-going maintenance costs by up to 98%.
The major difference between Herpetosure and other ecological contracting operations is that the group provides dedicated solutions to ecological site issues. Every contractor in the Herpetosure group has been working in ecological contracting for over 10 years and unlike consultancies whose majority of work is involved in planning, 100% of our ecological operations is spent in implementation.
