Context

Kerry, a leader in global food ingredients, needed to relocate one of their production lines. While the relocated production line was being installed into its new position, it was essential that current production in the factory continue.

Having completed a number of projects for Kerry in the UK, Westgate Factory Dividers were requested to design, manufacture and install a temporary screen, which would enable the continued operation of the factory without the risk of contamination from dust created during these essential works.

Work undertaken

Westgate provided Kerry with proposals for Flexiscreen, their temporary dust screen, as the unique V-overlap join between panels provides an over 99% dust tight seal. It is regularly used in the food industry to prevent the ingress and transport of dust onto operational lines during construction and installation projects.

Design and manufacture was turned around in under four weeks and install was arranged using experienced and certified Westgate teams from the UK.

The 7m high x 47m wide Flexiscreen was hung from a tensioned cable, which was fixed to the concrete structure of the building. The screen was then tensioned, sealed and fixed to the concrete floor to provide maximum protection between the installation area and the live production plant. The screen included a Flexistrip doorway for pedestrian access and a Flexicurtain access point to allow the plant equipment to be brought into the area, whilst providing maximum protection to other areas within the factory. The full installation was completed in just five days and ensured minimum disruption to the ongoing production. As part of the Westgate service offering, Westgate’s contracts team stayed in constant communication with Kerry’s team to ensure all project milestones were on track, and a further site visit including a Health and Safety compliance audit was also carried out by one of the team from Stafford.

Outcome

The success of this project has led to Westgate being instructed to carry out further Flexiscreen installations at both the Berlin and Manchester (Hyde) plants.

Comment

“Westgate and the Flexiscreen solution were our first choice when considering the practicalities of relocating a production line. We continue to be impressed with Westgate’s services and expertise from initial contact through to installation.” Kerry
