A-SAFE KEEPS BLUEWATER RUNNING SMOOTHLY

22 October 2009

A-Safe keeps the Bluewater Shopping Centre running smoothly. A-Safe bollards are proving a success in the car parks of Bluewater – one of Britain’s busiest shopping centres in Greenhithe, Kent, which is visited each year by over 27 million shoppers.

They were specified by Vita Lend Lease who maintain the centre’s public access car parks which are around 200 acres in size and incorporate 13,000 parking spaces.

Naturally, public safety is of the utmost importance in an environment like this, but a balance must also be struck with cost effectiveness. Halifax-based A-Safe offered the perfect solution to Vita Lend Lease with their 750mm high bollards, which are now installed throughout the shopping centre’s car parks. The company chose A-Safe because they were competitively priced, easy to install, highly visible and significantly more cost effective than the previous system.

Paul Birkett, Senior Facilities Manager comments: "We look after the whole car parking system at Bluewater, so this was an important decision for us. We initially trialled A-Safe in October 2007 and since then have taken several further orders amounting to over 525 bollards. They’ve been a great success, proving themselves tremendously effective in providing protected walkways for public safety."
