Imagining A Safer World

Above us only sky - but around us, Glasdon products are making Liverpool John Lennon Airport safer for travellers and staff.

Day trippers, paperback writers and anyone else with a ticket to ride won't need any help spotting Glasdon's Advanced Neopolitan 150 Bollard, Modus Pay & Display Shelter or Carleton Waiting Shelters at the 12th busiest airport in the United Kingdom, with more than 4 million passengers moving through the refurbished terminal in 2013.

The car parking situation at the airport was fine, but management were not content to just let it be. Working with contractors Hollingsworth Bros UK Ltd, LJL implemented a new short term "drop off" car parking arrangement. The project called for waiting shelters to provide cover and protection for the pay and display parking machines in the new space.

After contacting multiple shelter suppliers, Hollingsworth Bros and LJL chose Glasdon because of the overall package we were able to offer: competitive pricing, fast delivery and excellent customer service. After some hard days' nights, our shelters assembly team worked eight days a week to come in well under the customer's six-week timetable, with all the shelters delivered early.

At the same time, LaFarge Tarmac contacted Glasdon's specialist highways safety sales team looking to protect an emergency crossing point at the airport. Emergency services teams and airport staff needed to be able to access the route quickly in a crisis, but keeping access clear was a high priority.

Glasdon socketed bollards are perfect for temporary, permanent or semi-permanent installation - just the job for the airport. The Advanced Neopolitan 150 Bollard's LockFast Socket is permanently fixed in concrete, while the bollard top can be quickly removed using the key provided. An optional blanking cap is available to leave a flush surface if the bollard is out for longer periods of time.

Emergency services crews and airport staff have keys for the bollards in case of a crisis. LaFarge Tarmac's operatives were impressed with how easy the bollards were to install, and everyone agrees they look great.

Money can't buy you love, but it can go a long way with Glasdon's range of economical, robust and attractive site and street furniture products. If you've got a project for us, we can work it out!
