Northstone Materials are one of Northern Ireland’s largest extractors of quarry products, with multiple sites throughout the province. They produce an extensive range of aggregates and fill products for the construction industry.
At each of their sites there are many hazards that can put both workers and the public at risk of injury. Our Perimeter Security team were contracted to enhance security at their Toombridge plant.
Sales manager, Andrew Seay spoke of the project, “This is large site with a lot of traffic. The site manager had contacted me with a few concerns around public safety and wanted to look at the best method to restrict traffic in areas of the depot. After a site assessment we agreed to install five automatic barriers across the Toomebridge site, in two separate yards and the dispatch area.”
An industrial site with harsh conditions we needed robust barriers that could guarantee performance. Our Perimeter Security team supplied and installed four BL229 automatic barriers & one BL40 automatic barrier from Automatic Systems. Andrew explained that, “We’ve been supplying and installing Automatic Systems barriers for over 30 years. From experience we know that they are an extremely reliable piece of equipment. Capable of dealing with high traffic flow, making them the ideal solution for this type of industrial application.”
Every automatic barrier was fitted with LED boom lights and controlled with radio controls and free exit loops. One of the barriers was fitted with a time clock, whilst a few of the other barriers also had integrated intercoms or push-button controls.
Our perimeter security team were able to carry out a site visit and design a fully customised solution for the site. Offering enhanced security and a safer environment for workers and the general public.
