McLaren Construction

SFC Midlands designed, manufactured and installed an extensive package of secondary steelwork as part of the fit-out of the Debenhams new regional distribution centre in Sherburn in Elmet.

The package included staircases, a cat ladder, a plant platform, and integrated support steelwork for an automated Duerkopp suspended rail gantry allowing fully automated loading of garments into transit vehicles. The 6 no mezzanine floor access stairs complete with handrailing, were independent structures, designed, manufactured and erected prior to the 3 level mezzanine erection. 

Also included were mezzanine floor safety balustrades, mesh screening, and plastic protection barriers forming safe walkways within the warehouse.The safety balustrades on the mezzanine floor edges were designed with specific purpose built access areas for fork lifts, together with 2m high mesh screening as demarcation and security screens between high volume areas.
