Segregation of loading
bay and warehouse
Flexiwall® 37m(w) x 10m(h)
What did the client say?
“For nearly 40 years, Halcion Express located in Newcastle,
Staffordshire, has operated as an independent
presence in the UK distribution industry, servicing a
range of clients throughout the UK and beyond.
Constantly evolving and keeping up to date with
the changing market and demands of the industry,
Halcion Express now also offers storage solutions for
its customers which include Asda, John Lewis, Tesco,
Lakeland and Bentley.
Due to the ever changing demands of the industry and
client needs, Halcion Express required a partition in
their new warehouse premises; to segregate the new
loading bay area from the rest of the warehouse.

Segregating the two areas would benefit the customer
in two ways; firstly controlling dust ingress to the
warehouse and secondly by controlling the overall
temperature of the segregated space. These
conditions would also support Halcion Express should
they wish to achieve BRC certification in the future.
Halcion’s architect on the new warehouse project,
initially suggested a solid bottom section and Flexiwall
for the top section of the partition wall. However
after a period of consultation and recommendation
from Westgate, it was agreed that a Flexiwall floor
to ceiling solution be used, combining Easiguard
crash barriers for additional protection against
The Flexiwall floor to ceiling solution is a more costeffective
option in the short-term as installation times
are shorter, therefore reducing project costs; and in
the long-term as Flexiwall solutions are easily adapted
or even relocatable should the needs of the business
change in the future.
The Easiguard crash barrier reduces the chance of
damage to the Flexiwall, but in the event that damage
does occur, Flexiwall panels can be easily replaced and
cost less than repairing damage to a solid wall.
The final partition wall measured 37m wide by
10m high and was made out of translucent fabric,
allowing natural light to easily flow between the two
separated areas and saving on additional lighting costs.
It also included a Flexicurtain (with vision panel) access
point and a steel pedestrian door to enable staff to
enter from the loading bay into into the warehouse.
The entire job from initial quote to installation was
completed in just over eight weeks, with the final
installation taking place in under one week.
