Sangenic International Ltd
M1 pedestrian guardrail
Pedestrian guardrailing manufactured by Alpha Rail has been installed at the headquarters of Sangenic International Ltd in Mansfield to provide loading bay walkway segregation.
Located at the Oakham Business Park in Mansfield, Sangenic International Ltd manufactures and distributes baby accessories worldwide. The Sangenic Brand falls under the Global Tommee Tippee range of feeding, soothing and hygiene accessories.
Sangenic Health and Safety Manager, John Palmer, was tasked with improving pedestrian and vehicle segregation on site. It was decided that the installation of pedestrian guardrail would provide more robust protection to segregate walkways from vehicle loading bays and help to prevent employees from accidentally walking into unsafe areas during vehicle movements and whilst loading is in progress.
After initially being contacted, Alpha Rail visited the Sangenic company headquarters to get an understanding of the project and conduct a thorough site survey. Precise measurements were taken of the location to calculate how many metres of pedestrian guardrail would be required.
Alpha Rail removed the existing railings and replaced them with reinforced pedestrian guardrail. In total, 38 linear metres of M1 pedestrian guardrail were installed to various locations on site, so as to prevent pedestrian access into potentially health hazardous areas.
The pedestrian guardrail installed was supplied galvanised and polyester powder-coated RAL 1023 Traffic Yellow for high visibility purposes.
Since the installation of safety barriers to provide loading bay walkway segregation has been completed, subsequent audits from both Sangenic insurers and landlords have resulted in highly positive feedback.
Commenting on the project, John said: “Having looked at the Alpha Rail website, I was immediately impressed with the professionalism and expert advice they gave me via their online chat platform. When it came to installation, I was again not disappointed, as the pedestrian guardrails supplied are manufactured to the highest quality.”
Phil Ball, Sales Director at Alpha Rail added: “I am very pleased that our online presence has helped us to provide Sangenic International with a robust pedestrian guardrail system which will help John further ensure the safety of staff under his duty of care.”
