Invata Intralogistics, experts in advanced automation systems, selected Velox Machine Guarding to protect its new 465,000 square foot omni-channel fulfillment center. Invata designed and built the facility for Destination Maternity Corp., the world’s largest designer and retailer of maternity apparel. Invata needed a safety guarding solution that would conform to the ASRS structures, while protecting all Destination Maternity employees working around the equipment.
Velox Machine Guarding was Invata’s choice. The 8-foot high guarding provided excellent security and visibility combined with simple installation. The non-progressive panels allowed for quick and easy field modification with its patented hook design. Significant benefit was realized with the unobtrusive and small footprint of the guarding – allowing Invata to maximize aisle space around each ASRS.
Invata VP of Engineering, Mike Franke saidthat the guarding design made installationeasier than any guarding he has worked withto date. Having had serious concerns aboutthe modifications required to conform thefencing to the ASRS design, he waspleasantly surprised at the ease with whichhis team was able to configure the fence. Asa result, Mike noted he could not envision amore efficient or cost effective solution tothe challenge.
