Case Study – Safety Compliant Velogate Installation
Client: MBC Contracts / UK Power Network
Year Completed: 2016
The customer, UK Power Networks, is an electricity distribution network operator. They cover the South East, East, and London. The network has several locations within its network area.
MBC Contracts needed a partner to supply, install and commission a new, safety compliant, Velogate for vehicle access. A full height pedestrian turnstile was also required. MBC Contracts chose Teksec to partner with them on this project.
Acting on behalf of MBC Contracts, we carried out an initial assessment of the site to ascertain the correct Velogate specification. We tailor-built and installed the required Velogate, with a full height pedestrian turnstile alongside. And then ensured all relevant UKPN staff were trained on day-to-day operation of the installed equipment.
UKPN now operate a safety compliant gate and turnstile that controls both vehicular and pedestrian access to their Purfleet site. The site is able to operate safely and securely 24/7/365, meeting all regulatory requirements.
