Manufacturing | Full Barrier protection for Heineken’s Netherlands production plant

Manufacturing | Full Barrier protection for Heineken’s Netherlands production plant

A-SAFE were asked to manufacture, supply and install combined safety barrier protection solutions with integrated entrance points for Heineken’s Netherlands production plant.

CUSTOMER

Established in 1864, Heineken is a proud, independent and responsible global brewer, with operations in over 70 markets internationally.

SITUATION

After previously utilising A-SAFE’s health and safety systems in the UK, the brewery required a solution for their Netherlands plant to enhance safety in an area with underperforming metal fences, steel constructions and floor markings.

SOLUTION

A-SAFE manufactured, supplied and installed iFlex Pedestrian 3 Rail Barrier and iFlex Single Traffic+ Barrier to segregate pedestrians and protect against impact from forklift trucks, supported by Swing Gates to safely control pedestrian site access. These new barriers replaced the pre-existing metal barriers, improving safety and significantly reducing annual repair and maintenance costs.

Specifically engineered for the food and drink industry – our products benefit from stainless steel base plates, no ingress points and a hygienically wipe clean exterior. They’re also non-toxic and anti-corrosive, available in a convenient freezer grade derivative that withstands temperatures as low as -40°C.

Heineken’s Netherland Installation Leader explained: “The pedestrians are now completely segregated from the working area, but even where a pedestrian could potentially be hit by a forklift truck, the A-SAFE barrier will absorb the impact. Hereby, the chance of injuries gets a lot smaller. The A-SAFE barrier absorbs the impact. So, you can drive in to it with a forklift and both will be unharmed.”
