How to Put up a Temporary Fence

One of our best sellers is our Temporary Fencing Kits; containing:

1x Barrier Mesh Fence 1m x 50m roll (colour choice and grade choice available)
20x Fencing Pins for support (metal or plastic option)
20x U-pins (to anchor the mesh into the ground)
100 Cable Ties (for further support)

A regular question of ours is: “How do I put this up?” So here’s a how to make popping your fence up a little easier.

First off, whether you are having plastic or metal pins; you need to position them with the correct spacing for effective support.  We recommend a distance of 2m – 2.5m. This will enable your mesh fencing to stay taut and act as a secure boundary.

Once you have your pins in place you should then roll out your barrier mesh.

  • If using metal pins, hook the fencing over the loop at the top, and further attach the barrier mesh with extra cable ties down the length of the pin.
  • With plastic pins, simply clip onto the hooks.

It’s easier to roll out the amount of netting you need by standing the roll of mesh upright with 1x pin of choice anchoring the end of the roll. This will allow you to efficiently roll out your netting.

Once you have your basic fence up you can then introduce the U-pins. 1x U-pin between each post will secure the netting to the ground and will decrease the chance of animals or children trying to go under the netting.

Whether it’s temporary or permanent the Temporary Fencing Kit is ideal for quick boundaries and fences.

It’s that simple!


Shares in Diamond Logistics Norwich & Our Best Day of Orders Yet!

It’s been a little bit quiet on the news front until the recent bank holiday weekend. 
Christmas is always our busiest time of the year, with us usually clearing 200 orders a day; which is good for a growing business.

Our maximum order count in one day has never pushed passed 218 but recently we managed to beat that number with a whopping 324 orders in one day!
We were proud of ourselves to say the least. With numbers of orders increasing all the time it looks like we’ll be hitting a new target very soon.

Along side that we have also bought shares in our trusted courier company, Diamond Logistics Norwich who will also have a headquarters within our facility which will give us future potential to expand our company in different industries and not just On-line ordering.

We’ve already branched out into Retail with our walk in shop. This partnership could entail future expansions such as our own despatch company powered by Diamond.
The Future looks prosperous for True Traders, more updates and news to come soon.

1 job – 350 Applicants! Tough times for the unemployed!

Recently TrueTraders have advertised for a new job opening in the Warehouse and Distribution department of the True Centre.

The advert was sent to job centres locally and we had a mass response to say the least. Over 350 people applied within the first day of the advert being viewable to the public.

A staggering figure to us as well. In a positive light shows how far a small business can come in such a short period of time.

350 applications for a single job is pretty exceptional, and shows how tough it is out there at the moment. – Sam Russel – Senior Reporter – Eastern Daily Press

However we are not unique case but are definitely a clear example of just how hard these economic times really are. People in the masses struggle everyday to find work from the lesser paid jobs to the higher one.

Does it not show that times need to change! The population is growing… why aren’t job oppertunities….?!?!?




TrueTraders #nomakeupselfie? YOU can Kick Cancers’ Butt Too!

So the latest thing to storm social networking is the Cancer Research Awareness Campaign.

Facebookers and Twitters a-like have banded together to take part in the nominations to raise money and support Cancer research.

The campaign has managed to raise £2 Million in the last 48 hours; by Women of all ages, simply taking photos of themselves tagging #nomakeupselfie, in which girls strip to their bare, Au-natural faces.

The boys are even taking part too, with their #madeupselfie. (there’s a good reason boys don’t wear make-up) It’s amazing how people can really come together and support something global with a simple snapshot and donation.

Across the UK people have been nominating their friends to make a difference.

 And at True Traders we’re jumping on the band-wagon!

On Monday, March 24th; True Traders will be opening up the Donation-Jar for all employees (and customers, if they wish) to chip in. The Following Thursday you’ll see our donation and Selfies supporting the campaign across all of our departments. Boys and Girls! We Care and we’re ready to Kick Cancer’s Butt.

So from the TrueTraders Blogger, here’s my #nomakeupselfie

Celebrating Birthdays and New Products at TT

Good Morning,
So at the True Centre the TTteam are celebrating a Birthday.
Mine actually. Yeah that’s right Tyee has turned 20 today 😀 and I have also been pleasantly surprised with some lovely cards and cream cakes from the TTteam. What a lovely bunch 🙂
Can’t beat Coffe and Cake :L Lol
I am off for a long Birthday/Valentines trip to Paris so you won’t be hearing from me until next Tuesday. Arrghhh such a long wait. Lol, but i’m sure you’ll manage 😉

So True Traders has also introduced and few new products to our Websites which I wanted to share with you before I jet off across waters.

So we have Reflective orange barrier fencetaking the place of plastic barrier fence with lamps to help protect workers at night and keep them out of danger. High visibility at all times, makes warning lamps and road signs no longer necessary. the combination of orange-yellow makes the net highly visible even during foggy days. At night the built-in continuous retro-reflective tapes, with visibility power of 800cpl, warn drivers from hundred of meters away.

What’s not to like sounds like a must have to any Building or Construction Firm to me 😉

Also we haveNon-Conductive Fencing Pins. Traditionally Fencing pins are manufactured from steel posing high risk to the user in the event of striking underground power cables. with non- conductive fencing pins this risk is eliminated.

And now our Detectable Warning Mesh is even lower in price and a New Underground Warning mesh has also been added. Better than the average Warning Mesh this is manufactured from high strength colour rot-resistant homopolymer, polypropylene plastic; More visible than the standard warning tapes and more likely to be seen when dug up by a workman.
