SEC Storage is pleased to announce that we have completed the fit-out of Groundlink Cleaning UK Ltd's recently acquired, 1,400 sq/ft warehouse unit based at London Luton Airport in Bedfordshire.


Groundlink Cleaning provides cleaning services for various aircraft companies based at the airport and, following the acquisition of this new facility, they were in need of a multi-faceted storage solution in order to store a mixture of products for their cleaning crews, including cleaning materials, sick bags, aircraft magazines, toilet rolls and more.


Groundlink Cleaning invited SEC Storage to appraise the site in early 2019, and following a detailed site survey by our Project Sales Consultant, Damian Chudleigh-Smith, it was proposed that the warehouse should be divided into 3 key areas, in order to maximise the available space. These 3 areas consist of the main warehouse zone on the ground floor, which is used for bulk storage. A fire rated cupboard at the back of the facility for the storage of COSHH (control of substances hazardous to health), and a separate space for employees to store personal possessions, which is located underneath the mezzanine.

A multi-faceted  warehouse storage solution


In order to create these three new areas, SEC made allowances for the installation of single skin partitioning to be installed to either side of the existing mezzanine floor's staircase. The partitioning was used to create a changing room, complete with storage lockers underneath the mezzanine, and it was also used to enclose the staircase up to the first floor, in turn, isolating the front entrance and walkthrough from the main warehouse zone -- maximising employee safety in the process.


In the main warehouse area, SEC supplied and installed adjustable pallet racking for the storage of EURO pallets. The pallet racking and adjacent columns have also been fitted with upright protectors and column guards to reduce the risk of damage from forklift collisions.


In the new COSHH secure room located underneath the mezzanine at the back of the facility, SEC installed longspan shelving along with a dedicated extractor fan and electrical works, ensuring that the storeroom remains well ventilated at all times.


Overall, the fit-out of this facility has helped Groundlink Cleaning to make the most of their new warehouse space with a variety of storage and staff solutions that will serve them well for many years to come.
