How do you help keep over 3000 shift workers on a fast moving production line safe from slips and free from fatigue?
When Jaguar Land Rover moved to a 24 hour production cycle, their foot traffic literally tripled overnight. It became clear that the car manufacturer needed a heavy duty matting solution that would ensure their workers' safety, as well as keep productivity levels high.
In 2012, Jaguar Land Rover experienced such a surge in popularity for their Evoque and Freelander models that it decided to move their Liverpool site to a 24 hour production cycle. This meant three shifts across the day instead of two, and a 30% increase in the site workforce. This rise in foot traffic on the production line meant Jaguar Land Rover quickly needed a slip-resistant and anti-fatigue mat that could be quickly installed along the entire length of a car production line.
- Provides a slip-resistant surface
- Creates an anti-fatigue environment for the employees
- Quickly drains and dissipates production waste quickly and efficiently
- Easy to install, with minimal disruption to the 24-hour production cycle
- Lightweight and easily rolled up for cleaning and maintenance
Minimal disruption to the 24 hour production cycle was of utmost importance, so it was vital that the matting be quick and easy to install. The obvious solution was Crossgrip PVC, our hardwearing walkway matting that's designed to be loose laid with no fixing required. Its one-piece construction means it can be quickly rolled out and to cut to fit on site, making it perfect for the plant’s long production lines.
Made from flexible PVC, Crossgrip contours over uneven surfaces, including ramps and changes in level, while the diamond-cut pattern and cross-directional top ribs ensures a firm under foot grip. The matting's durable, two-layer construction also provides underfoot comfort for shift workers spending long hours on their feet.
