|Sheeting bay for small vehicles
|Builth Wells Quarry has a high proportion of collect customers using small vehicles and it was identified that many were climbing onto the back of their pick-up to sheet the load.
This method of sheeting was subsequently banned, but customers found it difficult to pull the sheet over from ground level.
An onsite fitter designed and built a sheeting bay for small vehicles comprising a sheeting cage into which vehicles reverse, stopping when they touch the ‘bump’ stops at the back of the cage.
The back of the vehicle is accessed through a ‘one way’ gate at the top of the steps and handrails around the side of the sheeting cage protect the customer from falling.
The sheeting bay is now in use at a number of the company’s quarries and has been very well received by customers.
