COVID-19 update: Is Modu-Loc open?

In these times of uncertainty, we wish to reassure our clients that all of Modu-Loc’s locations across Canada remain open for business until further notice. For the time being, Modu-Loc’s services have been deemed essential and we are doing our best to service our customers while complying with current health and safety standards and the recommendations of public health officials.

Like many of you, we have made some adjustments to the way we operate in order to protect the health and safety of our employees, customers, and partners. The well-being of all our stakeholders is of paramount importance to us.

Modu-Loc remains ready and able to service the needs of our customers through this difficult time. As this unprecedented situation changes rapidly, we will continue to keep our clients apprised of any potential impact to our operations.

In the meantime, we will continue to follow the recommendations set by public health officials and do everything we can to protect the well-being of our employees, customers, and partners. We thank you in advance for your cooperation, and we look forward to supporting you during this time.

How is Modu-Loc ensuring COVID-19 preparedness?

Modu-Loc has established a dedicated Response Team comprising members of our Leadership Team. The Response Team includes representatives who understand and are involved with legal, health and safety, operations, and communications. This Team is responsible for:

  • Developing an overall communications and contingency plan, and updating the plan as COVID-19 continues to evolve;
  • Maintaining a detailed contact list of essential employees, contractors, vendors, suppliers, service providers, and any other key contacts;
  • Acting as a liaison with affiliated companies, employees, contractors, vendors, suppliers, service providers, customers, insurance providers, regulators, government and public health authorities;
  • Determining the triggers for any action to be taken within our business in response to COVID-19, including:
    • who is authorized to make decisions and at what level in the business;
    • who is responsible for issuing communications, who will authorize the message to be communicated, and how such messages will be communicated; and
    • consideration of the extent to which our business can sustain disruptions to normal operations, including how staffing levels will be met, and the impact on employees, contractors, suppliers, service providers and customers.

With guidance from the Corporation des entrepreneurs généraux du Québec (CEGQ), and industry leaders, our Response Team has developed a detailed COVID-19 Response and Action plan to protect the safety and well-being of our stakeholders. This plan integrates the measures detailed below into a comprehensive COVID-19 policy that is observed by our entire organization.

What steps has Modu-Loc taken to reduce risk to employees?

For the time being, and in keeping with the recommendations of public health officials, we have implemented the following:

For All Employees:

  • Work-from-home measures for all Modu-Loc employees who are able to work remotely
  • A strict no-travel policy
  • Cancellation of employee attendance for any previously scheduled events
  • A moratorium on in-person meetings, with a focus on shifting to virtual methods using collaboration tools
  • A requirement that any employee who exhibits symptoms of a respiratory illness must stay home
  • More frequent sanitization of commonly touched surfaces at our depots, such as door handles, and hand sanitizer made available at main entrances
  • Frequent communication regarding the importance of personal hygiene, cleanliness, and social distancing of at least 2 metres, with information sourced from reputable resources
  • The provision of reusable masks, to be worn when performing tasks that require close contact of less than 2 metres and where required by our clients, for all employees

For Delivery and Install Crews

  • Hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies made available for our delivery and install crews, and more frequent and rigorous cleaning of their trucks
  • A limit of two crew members per truck, with set teams assigned to a dedicated truck to prevent cross-contamination
  • Staggered start times and lunch breaks to minimize social interaction
  • More frequent cleaning and sanitization of shared equipment such as forklifts

What can our clients expect?

While we continue to serve our clients at our depots and on site, we are asking for your cooperation in helping us to “flatten the curve.” The following measures will require small adjustments to the way we conduct business, but are necessary to help protect our customers and employees:

  • For the time being, all electronic paperwork will be completed on site by our Drivers, on behalf of the client. This will limit the amount of direct contact our customers have with our Drivers and their tablets.
  • Wherever possible, we are asking customers to consider allowing us to drop off the fence instead of installing it, to limit the amount of time our crews spend on site
  • Consider renting or purchasing our pickup panels in order to limit the number of subcontractors on your job site. Pickup panels may be delivered or picked up at one of our depots, and are designed to be easy to set up – so clients can install their temporary fence themselves, eliminating the need for our installers.
  • If a full-service install is required, we ask for flexibility in the job scheduling so that peak hours can be avoided – particularly if the site experiences high traffic (e.g. a retail store).
  • We are asking customers to practice social distancing when picking up or dropping off material at our depots. Employees have been instructed to avoid direct contact such as shaking hands. We appreciate your understanding as we forgo certain social norms in support of health and safety.
  • Please refrain from visiting our depots in person if you are exhibiting any symptoms of respiratory illness, or if you believe you may have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19.
  • Per the recommendations of public health officials, we encourage all of our clients to prioritize telephone or email communication over in-person visits to our depots. Unless you are picking up or dropping off materials, please contact us at:

    Telephone

What makes Modu-Loc products better than other fence suppliers?

We have the best fencing system in North America backed by a strong sense of pride in our service. Our product is a heavy duty fence that has been professionally engineered to meet safety standards and prevent site breaches. We use a heavier gauge wire mesh for our fence panels and our components are longer and made of a higher grade steel, resulting in a more durable, stable fencing system.

How much time do I need to give for my order?

Our response time is within 24 hours or next business day for urgent orders, provided you have an account set up or are able to pre-pay. Particular attention is given to emergency orders.

How do the gates work?

We have several solutions for gates, all of which can be placed anywhere in the fence line. Gates can easily be operated by one person and may be installed to swing or slide open, depending on your preference. While our gates come with standard gate wheels, we also offer specialized all-terrain wheels to ensure a smooth movement over rough or uneven surfaces.

Who is responsible if the panels are damaged or components are missing?

Our process is to count product upon delivery and obtain a customer signature on site as confirmation that you agree with our count. Any deficiencies are also noted at that time. Therefore, if panels or components are damaged or missing while leased to the customer, it is the customer’s responsibility and fees for replacement of the missing or damaged products may be assessed.

Our full terms and conditions can be found here.

I am concerned about security. How secure is the Modu-Loc fencing system?

This is an excellent question to ask any Modu-Loc employee. The security of our fence can be enhanced using any of our security accessories. Some examples include using 8′ high fencing, security clamps or security rails. There are several other options depending on your unique situation, which can be discussed with your regional sales representative.

What areas does Modu-Loc service?

Currently, we service 16 locations in Canada and 3 locations in the United States. Find a location

How do I set up an account with Modu-Loc?

Simply contact your local branch to obtain an account application form to set up an account. On your first order, we request that customers supply a credit card for the first month’s charges. You can continue to use your credit card or be invoiced for the next month’s rental or for new orders. For event customers we prefer pre-payment for the event via credit card.


« Notre collaboration avec Modu-Loc lors du festival The PARKLIFE a été une excellente expérience. Non seulement les prix étaient compétitifs, mais l’équipe a vraiment travaillé de concert avec nous et selon des délais serrés pour assurer la sécurité et créer un site attrayant pour le festival. Merci de votre engagement à bien faire le travail! Nous comptons bien utiliser de nouveau Modu-Loc pour d’autres événements de PARKLIFE. »

« Merci infiniment de nous avoir aidés pendant l’événement Nike Run. C’était un vrai plaisir de travailler avec vous et avec l’équipe de Modu-Loc! »
Tiff, Matt et Jess – Lemmon Entertainment
« Modu-Loc nous a préparé un devis honnête et juste, nous a rencontrés sur place et a abordé chaque détail concernant notre installation de clôtures. Modu-Loc a aussi fait don de clôtures supplémentaires pour aider notre cause. À son arrivée, l’équipe d’installation s’est montrée polie et organisée, elle a travaillé dur et a terminé la tâche à temps et de manière professionnelle. Nous avons reçu le même service de grande qualité lorsqu’elle est revenue chercher les clôtures et les portes quelques jours plus tard. Cette vaillante équipe a fait un travail exceptionnel en toute honnêteté et dans les délais prévus. Nous ferons certainement appel à Modu-Loc de nouveau dans l’avenir. »
ADRI H., DIRECTEUR ADMINISTRATIF – ONE TEAM SOCCER FOR PEACE & DEVELOPMENT SOCIETY (VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL SOCCER FESTIVAL 2016)

« Nous sommes si heureux d’avoir choisi Modu-Loc comme fournisseur de clôtures pour l’événement InTouch Credit Union Plano Balloon Festival de cette année. Non seulement le produit est-il supérieur à d’autres que nous avons utilisés dans le passé, mais même les participants ont souligné la belle apparence de toute l’installation. Notre point de contact sur le terrain était un vrai professionnel. Toute l’expérience a été fantastique. Nous recommandons vivement Modu-Loc à tous ceux qui organiseront prochainement un événement. »
Joe Via – InTouch Credit Union Plano Balloon Festival

« Les membres de votre équipe se sont démenés pour nous pendant le chargement et le déchargement. En plus, tout le monde l’a fait avec le sourire et une attitude dynamique. Nous ne pourrions pas être plus reconnaissants. C’était un plaisir de travailler avec vous et avec le reste de l’équipe de Modu-Loc. »
Matt, Jess, Alicia et Mark – Seawheeze Sunset Festival

« Je tenais à vous écrire pour vous remercier. L’événement a connu un énorme succès : nos 1 741 participants ont réuni 7,8 millions de dollars pour l’Alberta Cancer Foundation. Les choses n’auraient pas pu aller mieux pour nous et nous n’y serions pas arrivés sans vous! »
EMILY P. – RESPONSABLE DE LA PRODUCTION DES CÉRÉMONIES, THE RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER

« Nous avons récemment choisi Modu-Loc comme fournisseur de clôtures lors du KidzFest de Conroe. L’équipe a fait de l’excellent travail avant l’événement en nous conseillant quant au genre de clôture qui convenait, non seulement pour assurer la sécurité des enfants, mais aussi pour créer un site plus attrayant qu’avec des clôtures conventionnelles. Nous recommandons les services de Modu-Loc à quiconque souhaite réaliser un événement de qualité supérieure. »
LAUREN ARNOLD – VILLE DE CONROE

« Nous avons pris une excellente décision en travaillant avec Modu-Loc lors du Katy Rice Harvest Festival de 2016. Notre point de contact était extrêmement professionnel et proactif, et a devancé toutes les échéances que nous lui avons données. Il nous a fait installer 3 750 pieds de clôtures en 4 heures, et ce, bien avant que nous en ayons besoin. Non seulement les clôtures avaient bel aspect et ont permis d’assurer la sécurité sur toute la superficie de l’événement, mais le service était exceptionnel! Nous allons sûrement faire appel à Modu-Loc encore l’an prochain. »
Allen Fuller – Katy Rice Harvest Festival

« Nous avons vécu une très bonne expérience en travaillant avec Modu-Loc lors du Wurstfest, cette année. Non seulement les clôtures avaient bel aspect et ont permis d’assurer la sécurité sur toute la superficie de l’événement, mais le service était exceptionnel! Nous allons sûrement faire appel à Modu-Loc encore l’an prochain. »
Suzanne Herbelin – Wurstfest Association of New Braunfels

« Modu-Loc nous a fourni des services de contrôle des foules pour l’événement Operation Care, au Dallas Convention Center cette année, et nous ferons certainement équipe avec cette entreprise l’an prochain. Avec une superficie de 500 000 pieds carrés, 4 000 bénévoles et 20 000 invités, il était très important d’avoir des clôtures de qualité et un personnel professionnel, et Modu-Loc a vraiment été à la hauteur. Nos communications nous ont énormément aidés dans la planification et la logistique associées aux clôtures, qui étaient un élément essentiel à la circulation, à la sécurité et au succès de l’événement! Merci, Modu-Loc. On se revoit l’an prochain! »
