A retractable warehouse for Reagens Group to store chemical additives
The attention to design and structure quality are evident in Kopron’s projects where customers’ needs are always perfectly met. The solution studied out for Reagens Group, leaders in the field of additives for all types of PVC applications, is really special.
Kopron installed a big size retractable warehouse, inside the Client’s plant, dedicated to storage additives for plastics. The Engineering team of Reagens Group totally relied on Kopron’s team which offered a tailored ‘turn-key solution‘.
Kopron acted as the sole interlocutor throughout the development and handling of the order.
Kopron’s retractable warehouses, are able to cover/uncover areas dedicated to storage and/or production. The possibility to choose between fixed or retractable structures is a competitive advantage for Kopron fabric structures. Besides an integrated planning policy and turn-key solutions avoid to involve other suppliers.
A special detail: a record-setting span width!
Kopron retractable warehouses are assembled on forged steel wheels, with watertight double ball bearings. The Kopron patented anti-derailment system, guarantees more safety for daily operators.
Reagens Group requirements were very clear: they usually have a great quantities of goods to store and Kopron had to develop a proper solution, which came out to be a rectractable warehouse 36,5 mt long, 29 mt wide and 4 mt tall. The special characteristic of the warehouse stands in the width.
This single-span warehouse designed by Kopron technicians can be considered one of the best non-standard solutions ever produced.
The carrying body is in hot-dipped galvanized steel, layed on kerbs in concrete with rails. Kerbs of one meter act as barrier to avoid forklift operators to crash against the warehouse. The fabric requested is a self-extinguishing in Class I type.
At the front and rear sides, two high speed fold up doors, have been installed 4 mt x 4,5 mt tall. Other pedestrian doors have been inserted on all sides to increase safety.
Francesco Grasso, Kopron’s local Sales Agent, said:
“Reagens Group represents a very important business reality in the Bolognese territory. Amongst many competitors, they chose Kopron, relying totally on my expertise as well as on the team which took care of the project. We started off with masonry work, metal carpentry and then PVC fabric. The whole job was carried out in only two weeks, against the three originally scheduled. We are very satisfied with the final results. A non-standard creation which fully meets Reagens expectations.”
