Vehicle solutions provider streamlines traffic flow

Advanced polymer safety products protect the provider’s essential machinery.

By ·

The Jeffersonville, Ind., site of Autoneum, a vehicle acoustic and thermal management solutions provider, needed help to protect its critical operational equipment and separate pedestrian and vehicle traffic within its warehouse.

A safety solutions provider performed a site survey prior to recommending, manufacturing, supplying and installing a range of advanced polymer safety products. As a result of the new safety system, the solutions provider’s essential machinery is not only protected, but its vehicle and pedestrian traffic flow is also streamlined.

This protection is primarily due to safety guardrails and bollards, which flex and reform under impact from vehicles to absorb and disperse impact force, while using ergonomic handrails for optimum pedestrian guidance. The system has increased safety and given managers peace of mind.

Traffic flow in the facility remains simple and clear. Pedestrian and vehicle traffic routes continue to be clearly defined through physical barriers, thus providing protection for personnel, machinery, structures, vehicles and equipment.
