Bespoke Pallet Gates Improve Edge Safety for Large Furniture Manufacturer
Assessing the need for bespoke pallet gates
JJO PLC is a leading supplier and producer of kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms to many of the best outlets within the industry. Their business ethos demands only the use of timbers managed from forests. They have a strong policy on recycling all waste materials. Based in Bacup in Lancashire near Burnley and Blackburn, they were keen to invite a local company to talk about their pallet gate requirements. After a quick web search, they found NSI Projects and they got in touch to discuss their needs.
Arranging the site visit to Backup in the Burnley area
Maintenance Manager Mr Hez Eaves wanted to arrange a site visit so we could offer advice on the best type of pallet gate to install. JJO has spent time making gates themselves but the time and effort involved in maintaining the gates proved to be time-consuming. JJO were incredibly happy with NSI’s recommendations and costings, and have since placed a repeat order.
Here’s why JJO chose NSI Projects for their pallet safety gates:
“Operating day-to-day maintenance issues and repairs on many items one recurring repair over a short period of time was to one of our mezzanine safety gates, these had been fabricated in-house and had served for many years but were heavy and cumbersome to use. I then was browsing for safety gates on the websites, when I came across NSI Projects, I viewed their gate options and made contact with them. I was paid a visit by their sales manager, who was very helpful and informative of our needs, she did the measurements and made recommendations of the best type of gate required. Costings are always a concern, however, I found them to be very well priced and within a couple of weeks, we received the gate as a self-assembly option. I proceeded to assemble the gate and install it myself with the help of an apprentice engineer, and it was simple and easy to do. The assembly and installation took approximately 2 hours which caused minimum disruption to the warehouse operations. The quality of materials and design of the gate is of a high standard and our operators are more than happy with the equipment as it is easy to use. This is why I have just purchased another gate, and will hopefully continue till we have upgraded all others on site.”
