The Requirement

To enhance safety within a warehouse environment and establish clear separation between pedestrians and vehicles, such as forklifts.

The Challenges

  • Warehouse Layout: The layout of the warehouse, including the size, shape, and configuration, can be a significant challenge. Different layouts may require different safety equipment solutions, such as barriers, guardrails, or floor markings.
  • Visibility: Ensuring that both pedestrians and vehicle operators have clear visibility of each other is critical. Choosing safety equipment that does not obstruct lines of sight can be a challenge, especially in areas with limited space.
  • Compliance with Regulations: Warehouses must comply with safety regulations and standards. Selecting equipment that meets or exceeds these standards is very important.
  • Maintenance and Durability: Safety equipment must be durable and require minimal maintenance to ensure long-term effectiveness. Finding equipment that can withstand the rigours of a warehouse environment can be a challenge.

The Solution

After evaluating the challenges and  requirements, Troy Labs selected the Fixed Base Plate Bollard 75mm, Modular Hand Rail System Self Closing Gate and Surex Pedestrian Rail Kit to improve the safety in their warehouse.

The Fixed Base Plate Bollard offers the following features:

  • Enhanced Visibility: These bollards come with a 25mm red reflective strip for improved visibility, ensuring safety even in low-light conditions.
  • Superior Corrosion Resistance: The combination of galvanised pressure-fit caps and premium powder-coated finishes offers excellent corrosion protection, enhancing the bollards' longevity and aesthetics.
  • Robust Construction: Constructed from mild steel with a 5mm heavy wall and a continuous post design, these bollards provide strength, stability, and resistance to base plate warping.
  • Precision and Ease of Installation: Laser-cut base plates with consistent opening and fixing holes, along with the option of a 300mm diameter, 10mm thick base plate, make installation straightforward and precise.

The Modular Hand Rail System Self Closing Gate offers the following features:

  • Automatic Closing Mechanism & Enhanced Safety: Self-closing gates feature an automatic closing mechanism, providing a consistent barrier and enhancing safety by reducing the risk of unauthorised access and accidents.
  • Durable Construction & Longevity: These gates are built to last with robust materials, ensuring longevity and reliability, making them a cost-effective solution over time.
  • Versatile Mounting Options & Convenience: They can be installed in various ways to suit different access points and locations, offering convenience to users who benefit from not having to manually close the gate.

The Surex Pedestrian Rail Kit offers the following features:

  • Enhanced Safety and Accident Prevention: The modular handrail system helps prevent workers from entering dangerous traffic areas on-site, improving overall safety. It's clear demarcation of pedestrian walkways and exclusion zones reduces the risk of accidents and injuries.
  • Flexibility and Versatility: With its modular, no-weld design and a range of accessories, the system offers flexibility to accommodate various configurations and adapt to different facility layouts. This adaptability ensures a versatile and tailored solution for specific requirements.
  • Durability and Longevity: The use of galvanised rails and posts, along with a heavy-duty construction, provides corrosion resistance and robustness, ensuring the system's durability and a long lifespan. It can withstand challenging weather conditions and heavy use.
  • Cost-Effective and Customisable: The system is a cost-effective solution for creating permanent walkways and exclusion zones. It offers options for customisation, including a choice of powder-coated finishes for aesthetics and visibility, making it suitable for a wide range of facilities.
