Farrall’s Group, a national logistics network offering expert transport and warehouse solutions, approached Westgate due to a change in their storage needs at their Deeside Industrial Park warehouse.
An existing client had requested the need to store additional products and therefore Farrall’s Group needed to accommodate these products within their existing warehouse space. The decision was made to separate the warehouse and loading areas, which were currently one large space, into two sections.
Westgate were one of three businesses approached to consider and advise on the requirement.
Farrall’s Group selected Westgate due to their professional approach, extensive experience delivering multiple solutions for this type of project with other clients in the warehousing sector, the robust nature of their specialised Flexiwall partitioning product and the ability to use specialised anti-fungal fabric.
FR680 anti-fungal fabric is essential in the warehouse and food sector when adhering to BRC accreditation. Flexiwall can help prevent dust movement, noise control, manage temperature and avoid cross contamination, making Westgate’s Flexiwall partition the ideal solution in warehousing environments.
Flexiwall can be installed between racking and can fit into any space. Whilst Flexiwall is a permanent solution, it is also adaptable to change and therefore can be relocated to suit future developments within Farrall’s Group warehouse if the need arises. Flexiwall can fit any height and any width due to the way the panels are manufactured and pieced together. In this instance the Flexiwall partition installed was 36m wide x 8m high.
Farrall’s Group also requested a smart, corporate looking partition that reflected their brand, so Westgate suggested using red with a yellow border on the bottom section of the partition and white fabric on the top section.
Two Fastflex doors (4.5m wide x 3.5m high) and one sliding pedestrian door were also incorporated into the Flexiwall, to allow easy and safe access from one section of the warehouse to the other. Although Flexiwall is quick to install, this particular project was carried out over several weeks to accommodate the customer at their convenience.
