Retractable Safety Curtain for Public Protection during Vehicle Unloading

In recognition of our CLOCS Champion status, on our 1-9 Seymour Street project, situated a short distance from London’s Marble Arch, the team devised an innovative, fire retardant, retractable safety curtain.

The site is located on an extremely tight footprint, with no off-site loading/unloading areas. The curtain therefore serves as a protection barrier between the highway unloading point and the public walkway under the gantry.

During periods of unloading, the curtain is pulled to ensure that any loose debris that may fall as a result of the unloading protects the public passing our site.

The curtain is then retracted once works have completed that day so as to provide an open and visible space – secure for those walking under the gantry in the evenings or periods where our works are not taking place.

The benefits of the curtain are twofold. Protection of the passing public, and reinforcement of key information and a road safety reminder to delivery drivers whilst in their cabs during off-loading.
