A-Safe was chosen to provide a selection of on-site safety barrier systems including over 60 column protectors along with wall protection. The logistics team at M&S also saw A-safe's designs as fitting in with the modern, fresh and efficient image that the new Bradford distribution centre would convey.
When it came to the final decision, Danny Swann, logistics manager for capital and infrastructure at M&S head office, says: "This solution [A-Safe] would become the Design Standard so I would want it in all new sheds and any we alter.

Importantly too, the polymer barriers offer a considerable environmental saving fitting with M&S's eco and ethical 'Plan A'. Over a five-year period, a 100m length of plastic A-Safe barrier is said to create a carbon footprint four and a half times smaller than a steel equivalent.
