Egbert Taylor Group
Over 20 years ago, Egbert Taylor Group (designer and manufacturer of recycling containers, aesthetic street furniture and galvanised steel containers for recycling and waste), contracted Westgate to install an 80m-long x 6m-high partition wall in their UK warehouse, and this now needed to be relocated due to the company's expansion.
Westgate suggested their Flexiwall® FR610 solution for the original installation; manufactured in fire-rated PVC materials and then suspended and tensioned using the existing building’s structure to form a permanent partition.
Although sometimes seen as a less permanent solution (when compared to alternatives such as masonry or stud), the wall installed over two decades ago at the facility is still in place and working well.
More recently Egbert Taylor Group decided to make some changes to the space within their warehouse to accommodate their growing range of waste and recycling solutions. The company instructed Westgate that as much as 30m of the existing Flexiwall® wall be taken down and relocated, for re-use in another gridline in the same warehouse.
This would be almost impossible had the original solution been a block wall, but Egbert Taylor Group had opted for Flexiwall®. As Flexiwall® is adaptable (even after 20 years in place) and, with the expertise of Westgate’s installation team, it was possible to complete the relocation request.
This unique wall solution is installed with the intention of permanent, long-standing usage. It also has a clear advantage should circumstances change; it can be easily extended, reduced in size, taken down, reinstalled or otherwise reconfigured, to suit whatever new purpose occurs.
Flexiwall® is cost effective when it comes to partitioning space, but it also reduces costs by cutting down the time required for installation therefore minimising potential disruption to a business. It is incredibly durable, and can be changed and adapted, no matter how long it has been in place.
Egbert Taylor Group commented: “The durability and flexibility of the Flexiwall solution has enabled us to adapt the warehouse space to better match our current business and operations requirements. This enables us to accommodate our growing range of Waste Management Solutions and manage our space better”.
