British Gypsum – Industrial Bulk Stockpile Cover system
Client: British Gypsum
Job Details: Covering of DSG material across multiple manufacturing facilities
Date: 2013 – ongoing
British Gypsum hold bulk stockpiles of DSG material across a number of their UK manufacturing facilities.
As a key inventory component of their manufacturing process the DSG material must be kept dry and protected from the harsh British weather, additionally as outside stored inventory there is also an environmental obligation to prevent wind blown dust and pile material leaching.
Our Cover Up 240 & Net Down cover system were chosen back in 2013 and since then we continue to complete cover works across multiple British Gypsum manufacturing facilities.
Cover Up 240 provides the weather ‘proofing’ element with our Net Down ballast system providing the cover with protection against wind displacement and damage.
Pile specific sized pre-welded panels of Cover Up 240 are supplied to fit the dimensions of each pile with panels being stitched seamed using a ‘J’ fold seam method. 6m wide rolls of Net Down are then placed directly on top of Cover Up 240 and also stitched seamed.
On all British Gypsum cover works we provide a measure up, supply, installation and full aftercare service.
Testimonial: John Barlow, British Gypsum
“HBB GeoSales serviced our industrial bulk stockpiling contract with their double layer cover system proving very reliable throughout a number of stormy UK winters. We found HBB to be both competent and professional throughout all aspects of the work and most importantly completed all works safely’”
