Haribo, the famous international sweet manufacturer, is replacing some of the traditional steel barrier protection for A-Safe’s innovative and equally strong polymer based barriers and rails at its plant in Pontefract.
Hand rails are protecting the movement of staff skirting busy despatch areas from motorised pallet lifters. Walls are protected by A-Safe’s most popular product, the low level Traffic Barrier preventing damage to walls in refurbished areas. Within the plant’s warehouse section, Haribo have utilised the Rack Protection system.
Such is the versatility and ease of installation; Haribo’s trained maintenance staffs have been able to do the installation work themselves. A spokesman for Haribo reported that: “they like the hygiene aspects of the barriers as well as its strength and good looks. The metal barriers currently in use in the despatch areas have nooks and crannies which could harbour dirt”
Haribo is seeing at first-hand the benefits of the polymer-based safety barrier systems over and above steel equivalents by providing the strength and durability of steel, with the flexibility and reduced maintenance of plastic. The big plus for the food industry is that A-Safe barriers have passed stringent food hygiene tests.
A-Safe provides far more than just a comprehensive range of safety products for installations in food and drink manufacturing environments. They also offer a full consultation service, ensuring that that the right product is assigned to the right application. This is complemented by a full installation and maintenance package as well as a leasing option, if required, to fit your financial solutions.
