Barrier Ltd THA Shelter

Newcastle, United Kingdom

Barrier Ltd called on Rubb to help create temporary production shelters to support the delivery of current contracts and increase capacity.

 

Barrier Ltd’s specialist coatings division offers a range of surface preparation and surface coating, which includes shotblasting, thermal spraying of aluminium and passive fire protection, as well as specialist paint systems.

 

Barrier ordered a 12m span x 18m long THA type fabric shelter for use as an additional coating facility at their Wallsend Yard.

 

The THA shelter features a 3m x 3m roller shutter door and access door in the front end. The structural steelwork is hot dipped galvanized to protect against corrosion. The covering membrane is fabricated from high tenacity PVC polyester fabric, which is flame retardant. This is tensioned over the frame. The roof material is translucent white, which allows natural light to illuminate the internal space. Blue PVC walls complete the fabric shelter.

 

Robert Bowles, Chairman of The Barrier Group, said: “Before we move into our new facility, we needed to create temporary production areas that would support the delivery of current contracts and also increase the capacity for the manufacture of fire rated valve boxes for the international oil and gas market.”

 

Ken McLean, Barrier Ltd’s Project Manager, said: “The key advantage for Barrier in working with Rubb is their ability to engineer cost effective solutions and deliver them within very tight timescales.”

 

Rubb Managing Director Ian Hindmoor commented: “Rubb provides the ideal affordable solution that can help these businesses grow. Our fabric shelters can be designed to suit the site, quickly constructed and can be taken down, stored and relocated as required. They are tough, durable and a cost effective long term investment, with low running and maintenance costs. We have had a long standing relationship with Barrier Ltd, and I am delighted to see a business like that expanding and that Rubb has been a part of this process.”
