Amazon Warehouse Safety Barriers
Milton Keynes, a modern city positioned halfway between London and Birmingham, is the site of three Amazon facilities: a fulfilment centre in Ridgemont, an imaging studio at the Crownhill Business Centre, and the expansive Amazon Magna Park warehouse, which spans over 51,000 square meters, equivalent to more than seven and a half football fields.
Given the vast expanse of this area, there are a greater number of risks to consider, and prioritising the safety of the staff becomes imperative.
DID YOU KNOW?
In addition to its considerable workforce, the Amazon Magna Park warehouse relies on 850 blue robots to play a critical role in its daily functions. These robots are assigned a dedicated mezzanine space for seamless operation.
KITE'S PART OF THE PROJECT
Kite was proud to supply Amazon with one of our Flexible Protection Systems, known as the PED 150 LINK Safety Barriers. Amazon specifically requested a non-standard height of 3087mm to ensure the safety of their staff working around stacked pallets.
Our Pedestrian Safety Barrier, the PED LINK 150/1, emerged as the optimal solution to meet the mandated safety standards. This barrier not only complies with safety requirements but also incorporates base plates designed for tall barriers, delivering additional ground reinforcement to enhance support and strength. It is ideal for areas where future additions of corners could be possible, and where it’s necessary to handle heavy loads.
