Challenge

Westgate was called in by EGGER (UK) Ltd to install a temporary building and dust screen at its Hexham plant that needed to be in position whilst a press line was taken out.

Across from the press line that needed removing was a machine that is responsible for the production of thousands of chipboard sheets every day. The machine needed to be protected from the inevitable dust that would be thrown up during the removal of the press line. The amount of dust that would be created by the removal of the press line would almost certainly have caused defects on this operational machine, resulting in expensive wastage.

Solution

Westgate recommended and designed a Flexiscreen® solution, which on completion of the installation was 40m wide and 8m high.

Flexiscreen® can offer an impressive 99%+ dust-tight seal, offering excellent protection for the machine against the debris generated by the removal of the press line.

The screen needed to be in position for no more than two months. Understandably, EGGER wanted a cost effective solution for this temporary and short-term arrangement. Westgate demonstrated its flexibility in this by offering solutions from a range of fabrics and components suited to the project timescales / budget.

Installation

The timescale from quote to installation can take up to as long as six months for some jobs, with an installation time of two weeks, depending upon the size of the final building screen. In this instance installation took only three and a half days, demonstrating the speed at which Westgate is capable of installing such systems, especially when a quick solution is essential to the continued operation of a business.

Client feedback

“In the past EGGER have worked with Westgate on various projects which have required temporary curtain dividers to protect machinery/plant from contamination. These installations went very smoothly and worked effectively. This time around was no different, from design to actual installation, it was an enjoyable process with the end product providing the protection we required.”
