Praise for ACP's Arrow Panels

ACP’s freestanding Arrow Panels have been praised for their quality and speed of installation at Biffa’s new waste transfer facility at Weston Super Mare.  Following an initial enquiry in early December and despite the interruption caused by Christmas shutdown all the panels were manufactured and delivered to site by the second week of February.

Last year North Somerset Council awarded Biffa Group the contract to manage its local household waste recycling centres (HWRC’s). North Somerset is one of England’s top recycling local authorities with a recycling rate of 60.1% in 2014-15.  Biffa are committed to maintaining and improving this still further, expanding the range of materials that can be accepted, with the aim of achieving an average waste diversion of 53% over the life of the contract, up from the current 42%. 

As a result Biffa required a new recycling depot at Weston-super-Mare for dry recyclables and having previously worked with Livesey Contracting & Maintenance (LCM) looked to them to convert an existing building to provide the facility.

With Christmas fast approaching LCM made an initial enquiry to ACP on 5th December for 123lin m of freestanding walling with 2 hour fire rating to provide 8 storage bays of varying sizes. With a handover date of 1st March time was of the essence and after a reviewing other products available LCM selected ACP based on the quality of the product, ease of installation and programme. The order for 128 nos 4m high Arrow Panels and 22 nos 3.6m high L-Arrows was placed on 22nd December, after ACP had closed for the Christmas break! However it was full steam ahead on the return to work on 9th January and 8 loads were delivered in the 3rd week of January with completion of deliveries by 9th February. The panels were quickly installed and the facility was handed over to Biffa on time and the project was praised for the early completion of the walls.  Rick Gray, Director of LCM said “We were very impressed with the level of service provided by ACP and would endorse their product for future projects. This is due to the quality of the product, speed of install and fast turnaround from order to delivery.”  

ACP’s Arrow Panels are freestanding, interlocking units designed to provide instant walls for dividing new or existing storage facilities. Available in 2.4m, 3m, 3.6m and 4m high they are easily moved using a forklift or telehandler and can be bolted down and the joints sealed if required.
