Marks & Spencer are a high street retailer. The distribution centre is vast and, within the building, they had installed a three-floor mezzanine to increase capacity.
Every mezzanine has to have an edge rail as standard. However, at this site, they are operating pump trucks, which brings an added dimension of safety risk. The challenge here was to create a safety solution that would make the mezzanine safe for people, pump trucks and products to operate on safely.
Brandsafe was able to design and install a bespoke system for this site, a unique 3-in-1 mezzanine edge protection system, which included:
- A 2.4m high fencing edge, along with a handrail, to comply with safety regulations
- A low-level Armco barrier system, incorporated within the bespoke system, to prevent the pallet trucks from driving into the fencing and spilling over the edge
A huge benefit to M&S was the cost and time we were able to save them, as we provided a complete solution, which meant a single-sourced combined solution, rather than having to work with multiple suppliers.
The end result was a bespoke system, fully tested and compliant with safety standards and regulations, so that M&S can operate confidently and safely across the three mezzanine floors.
