When to Start Thinking About Hardware for Your Project


When it comes to the building process, many professionals don’t think about hardware until late into a project. However, hardware should be a consideration much earlier than many people realize.

Our team knows how stressful planning can be, especially when considering all of the details that need to come together to finish successfully. That’s why we’ve put together our recommendations for the perfect time to think about hardware, no matter the project scope or size.

Plan Ahead

Although it’s not possible on every project, when you start to incorporate fencing into your project plan, you should also set aside time to figure out what hardware will be needed with that fencing. There is no better time to think about gate hardware then right from the start. When you start planning early, you are able to ensure prompt delivery times and the best price for your hardware needs.

What to Consider

Before you place an order for the accessories your project needs, make sure to do your re-search. Look up the local codes. Does the hardware need to be ADA compliant? Must the accessory be child resistant or have the ability to be padlocked? There is nothing worse than installing an accessory and having to uninstall it because it didn’t meet local codes and compliances.

Remember that some jobs will require additional documentation on the product’s origin, such as “locally made,” or another description. Make sure to know what your project re-quires before purchasing hardware.
