Co-Operative, Avonmouth:

The 435,780 square foot (40,485 sq m) state of the art facility is conveniently located near to Junction 18 of the M5 and ideally placed to distribute goods to 482 Co-Operative stores in the Bristol, North Somerset and South Wales area.

Our safety barriers have been installed extensively both inside and outside the RDCRDC. The access roads are lined with Barrier Rails mounted on semi-flexible Flexi-Posts. In the vehicle waiting areas power cables have been integrated into the barrier. Post extensions have been mounted to every other post and these have been used to mount power outlets.

The Flexi-Posts give greater protection if a reversing vehicle fails to stop in time, avoiding damage to the barrier, power cables and HGVs. We also installed a number of exterior bollards to protect doorways and other access points and additional barrier to protect fuel storage and other plant.

Inside the distribution centre, structural columns benefit from our column protection units that flex upon impact to minimise damage. Other areas have our unique double rail system mounted on spring steel buffers that creates an impenetrable but flexible barrier from ground level to a height of 610mm.
