FibreGrid helps make Tilbury Docks a safer place

FibreGrid helps make Tilbury Docks a safer place

FibreGrid has supplied its Fibrerail handrails for Tilbury Docks, an 850 acre site, handling cargo as diverse as paper or grain, and is the major port for London and the South East.

Safety is of paramount importance to its owners, which is why they entrusted FibreGrid with the installation of 50 linear metres of handrail around various outbuildings at key locations. The facility is used in all weathers, 24/7, so handrails are necessary to offer extra protection on ramped and stepped access against possible slips and trips in high risk areas.

FibreGrid handrails are available in grey or yellow, but the customer chose to ‘mix ’n’ match’ using grey for the uprights and mid-rails, with the top rails and fittings in yellow for maximum visibility.

It goes without saying that FibreGrid handrails meet DDA and Building Regulations requirements and are ‘not cold to touch’, which is vital in not discouraging people from putting their hands on them in cold weather.
