Client:

ACRO, a specialist aeroplane seat manufacturer, go in contact with us via our website to see if we could produce a double skin steel partitioning solution that would stop manufacturing items spilling over into the rest of their workshop.

Challenge:

ACRO had told us they needed a solution that cornered off a specific machine, and stopped any waste material from the machine spilling into the rest of the workshop. We quickly got to work on what types of solutions we could offer. We reported to ACRO that the two best options were either Single Skin Steel Partitioning or Double Skin Steel Partitioning.

Once that was decided, ACRO would also want two CAD drawings, one that the Steel Partitioning walls surrounding the machine and the other that was the same, except it also had a added roof to it. ACRO need all of these different solutions and options so that they could make the best informed decision based on all of the information we provided to them.

When all the solutions had been worked out, Storwell Systems only had 3 weeks to supply, deliver and install the finish product, so time was of the essence.

Solution:

While the Sngle Skin Steel Partioning was cheaper, the Double skin was easier to reconfigure in the future and could be fitted with glass, so workers other on the outside could see if the machine was already in use. ACRO decided that the reconfigurtability of the Double Skin Steel Partitioning, and the ability to add glass to them was worth the extra cost.

ACRO also decided that the added roof elementy was not needed and so with the final order they asked if it could be removed.

The Double Skin Steel Partitioning came in 3 runs as the back all of this new area would be the wall of the workshop. All 3 of the runs were 3000mm high and all of the runs had glass in the the middle so workers could see in to see if the machine was occupied. the widths of the runs ranged between 4000mm W and 8000mm W

Benefit:

The Benefits of this solution were that ACRO could now use their machinery without having to worry about loose parts or left over materials spilling into tyhe rest of the workshop. It also meant people who weren’t using the machinery could move around safely without being in any danger of the machinery.
