It is hard not to know who New Zealand Post are, but for those who have been living in the mountains and have no clue, New Zealand Post has been ingrained in the Kiwi way of life for 170 years and are committed to a future that meets our mailing needs both physically and digitally. It is part of this dedication, that led them to open their new parcel sorting facility next to the Christchurch Airport.
The facility is home to the latest in mail sorting technology including a multi-million-dollar parcel sorting machine. Of course, ensuring the safety of this equipment around vehicles and heavy machinery such as forklifts is top priority, but so is protecting their staff and the foot traffic around the facility. Which is why, when we were approached to find a solution for the facility, we knew we had to get it right and provide a barrier system that could grow with them.
After our initial conversation on traffic management our team set to work on finding the best possible way to help New Zealand Post’s international parcel facility.
What we realised in our planning and assessment was that the facility would be growing and changing over time so our solution needed to be one that could be altered without too much hassle or interference to their workflow.
Which is why we recommended the modular system of ForkSafe. The ForkSafe barrier is a quality engineered barrier suitable for factories. The barrier has been designed to provide for ease of installation, safety of pedestrians, and a deterrent for forklifts and other mobile plant inside factories.
The posts are available in 3 different heights, while the rails can be cut to specific lengths. These features coupled with the new Crumple Zone Technology sets the ForkSafe barrier system apart. The uniquely designed posts are designed to absorb the impact in such a way that they reduce the chance of ‘shock’ to the forklift driver and protects concrete floors from ‘blowing out’.
This means that the management of New Zealand Post can rest easy knowing that a top-of-the-line solution is protecting their valuable investment as well as their people.
