Thorworld loading ramp for Costco

Cash and carry group Costco has installed a Thorworld loading ramp at its distribution centre at Crick.

The project was been overseen by JF Finnegan, and involved the design and manufacture of a 12,000Kg Deluxe Type 6 ramp to enable efficient access from the external yard level to the warehouse.

The ramp has been fitted with 1000mm high handrails for user support, a floor surface of tread plate decking with a Bimagrip ant Islip surface to prevent slips and skids, and a 10mm nose at the top of the walkway to provide a smooth transition for vehicles accessing and departing the dock.

Paul Ballantyne of JF Finnegan said: “Our client has been very pleased with the result and it’s been reported that the loading bay is performing well and improving efficiencies.”
