Challenge

Travis Perkins, a leading UK timber and builders merchant, now operates from a brand new Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) in the Appleton area of Warrington. The 11 acre site means that all 150 branches in the region can now promise customers in the North West that if a product is not already in stock, it will be there by the next day.

The RDC enables branches, whatever their size, to provide builders and contractors across NW England access to the most comprehensive range of building materials in the industry. Not only will Travis Perkins now be able to promise a greater product range and improved availability, it also means that all 150 branches in the region will be able to offer a full tool and equipment hire service.

The challenge was to find a suitable perimeter fencing system for the RDC building to give the client enough security while, at the same time, being completely aesthetically pleasing as it is in full view of the M62 motorway in an iconic position.

Solution

CLD Fencing Systems was involved early on in the construction process with the main contractor and has supplied almost 6km of fencing and gates throughout the whole development.

The solution was relatively simple for the huge distribution centre as CLD Fencing Systems has over 25 systems to choose from, ranging from simple and secure boundary demarcation to very high secure fencing and access control systems. To demonstrate this CLD supplied samples of the Eclipse profiled panel system, which met the client’s criteria for aesthetics and security.

Outcome

The Eclipse profiled panel system has a number of clear features when used in this situation:

  • Wrap around steel security clips
  • 30mm projecting spikes
  • Fully resistant welded joints
  • Fully galvanised and powder coated panel and post.

Benefits:

  • Economical for use over large areas
  • Very easy to install
  • Simple to step on gradients
  • Has a sophisticated appearance for commercial and industrial applications

The Travis Perkins RDC is due to open in 2015 after a 12 month construction period with the main contractor.

A Business Development Manager stated the "corporate feel and sense of sophistication was truly amazing as you drove through the different sites".
