Project details:

Client: Travis Perkins Plc.
Location: Branches in London, Home Counties, South East and South

The Background

Travis Perkins have been experiencing serious and costly issues with Thermoplastic Line Markings in all of their yards for a number of years. Their yards are heavily trafficked by large articulated and heavy trucks and forklifts and used to stack pallets and building materials that are often dragged or pushed around meaning that markings quickly become dirty and lose visibility.

We advised that Thermoplastic markings are not ideal in such situations, as constantly refreshing these markings causes the line thickness to build up into a trip hazard, and as most of their yards are predominantly concrete, thermoplastic can crack and chip away particularly after a spell of cold weather.

The Trials

To fully understand the issues they faced, we have worked with Travis Perkins for over a year carrying out examinations of sites and conducting field trials of carefully selected products and application methods.

By carrying out these trials and carefully monitoring performance and comparing data for each product over a period of time, we have developed bespoke solutions that suit Travis Perkins specific needs across their range of premises.

We are very proud to say that all our hard work and determination has paid off, and we are now the official contractor for all Travis Perkins depots in London, Home Counties, South East and South.

The Solution

We have developed a select range of products and bespoke application methods that provide linings that:

  • Clean easily by hosing off
  • Resist wear better than Thermoplastics
  • Do not build up into trip hazards, helping our customer to keep their staff and visitor safe
  • Save our customer money by reducing the need to constantly re-mark
