Railing system secured to aluminum backed, insulated sandwich panels was required at a logistics center in Northern Spain for a fast-growing supermarket chain - Lidl. Within the cool rooms, apart from the main load bearing structure, the whole space is made of insulating sandwich panels (12 to 18 cm thick) with outer aluminum layers. The cool rooms within the logistic center have ceilings that are hanging from the main roof and are placed at different heights. This generates fall hazards for the maintenance personnel that will access the space between the ceilings and the roof. Lidl wanted to prevent this hazard by installing guardrails on the borders of these surfaces.
Prior to order, Lidl requested a short run sample installation.
After the successful installation of the sample, Lidl proceeded with the full project scope.
Lidl opted for Kee Guard Top Fix because it provides a compliant solution that could be installed on the particular sandwich panels they had as a flooring.
