The new Morrisons’ Regional Distribution Centre at Bridgwater in Somerset covers nearly 60 acres and provides more than 71,000 square metres of warehousing (over 750,000 square feet) to distribute Morrisons’ goods to their stores located in the West and South West of England and South Wales.
DLA Architecture specified more than 2.5km of safety barriers from us to protect personnel, plant and equipment throughout the site. This specification not only met the approval of the client, but also with the main contractor for this project, Bowmer & Kirkland.
Just over 1.5km of barrier has been installed inside the warehouse and nearly 1km outside. This included nearly 800m of Berry’s Spring Steel Buffers, on which a Warehouse Rail is mounted below a standard barrier rail to provide protection to pedestrian walkways from forklift trucks and other warehouse vehicles.
The additional lower rail prevents the forks penetrating into the walkway below the standard barrier.
The varying styles specified reflect the different risks identified in specific areas and illustrates how our range can accommodate varying requirements and still remain an approved and tested solution.
