Thank You!

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of those who were able to make it to the Intertraffic exhibition in Amsterdam this March. It was a pleasure to meet face to face with some old, as well as new friends who help support Melba Swintex.

It is your input from shows such as Intertraffic which Melba Swintex deem invaluable within the Traffic Management industry.


Marathon Des Sables

This April, Gregg (Managing Director of Melba Swintex) & Louis Dawson (his son) will be taking part in the Marathon Des Sables. Touted as the ‘Toughest Footrace on Earth’, they will face a 6 day run of 250km (156 miles) across the Sahara desert.

The reason for taking on one of the world’s most enduring races is to raise money for research into the cure for Motor Neurone Disease. A devastating condition that has been in their family for over 10 years to which at this stage has no cure.

If you wish to support Gregg & Louis in any way, please head over to the donation page which has been setup here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/dawson-dessables

Melba Swinex will match the total amount raised.

Need to Catch Up?
Yet another year has flown by, and in what has felt like such a short space of time, Melba Swintex has pushed out innovative new products, increased ever demanding lead times, and pushed the boundaries in the plastic manufacturing world. Sometimes it’s worthwhile to step back and review the work of the past 6 months, so here it is.

Buddha Barrier

Buddha

After a long time in development, the Buddha was first put into production in September. Continuing to receive critical acclaim, the Buddha barrier is the first completely anti-trip Water Filled Separator, which provides up to a weight of 27 kg when filled.

DoubleTop Barrier

DoubleTop

With both the WonderWall™ and Buddha systems having the capability for a top-tier barrier system, it only made sense to design and produce a barrier to suit this. October saw the answer to this with the DoubleTop. A blow moulded, lightweight barrier that is compatible with both the WonderWall™ & Buddha, as well as other existing systems.

Thor Barrier

Thor

Ever increasing growth within the exports market identified the opportunity to release the highly robust Thor Barrier in July. Over engineered to produce great strength and stability, the Thor is hitting the roads globally, and is already well established within the Traffic Management world.

Factory Extension

August saw the completion of the large extension to the right-hand side of the factory. This extension has deemed pivotal within the production of Melba Swintex products, providing the space for yet another brand-new Blow Moulding machine, and our 8th intrusion moulding machine.

Fence Base MKII

Fence Base & Thor

Due to the ever-growing global success of the Thor Barrier, an abundance of requests and questions flowed in to see if the Fence Base MKII was compatible. This need from our customers was acted upon without hesitancy, and the Fence Base MKII is now compatible with the Thor Barrier.

Another Machine

Production in the factory runs 24 hours a day all year round and still we are ever expanding to keep up with demand for our high-in-quality products. December saw the completion of our 8th intrusion moulding machine, providing up to 16 more stations to increase our production rate.

Buddha Barrier
Introducing the New

Buddha Logo
Barrier

from Melba Swintex.

A uniquely designed, completely anti-trip Water Filled Separator.
– 800 mm in height 
– reflective on both sides
– only 5 kg when empty
– over 27 kg when filled to the indicated line
– designed to make more working space for the contractor
– easy stack, easy fill, easy empty

Water Fill Area
The Buddha Barrier is easily filled with water at the top, it can then easily be emptied by laying the barrier flat.

Buddha Angle
The Buddha Barrier is the only Water Filled Separator that can rotate over 270° whilst remaining connected to the other barrier.

Face-to-Face
The Buddha Barrier can be positioned face to face, creating a closed and secure area.

Water Over Flow
A maximum level line is indicated on the back of the barrier, and with an overfill hole for visual indication.

Buddha Top Fence
The Buddha Barrier has the capability to take a top metal fence panel. This adds an extra level of security.

Buddha Stacked

Stacking
The unique shape of the Buddha allows easy and safe stacking  that results in less room being occupied during transport and storage when back at the contractor’s yard.

Further Information

The above is just a quick insight to the many features & benefits that the Buddha has to offer. For the full low down, head to the Buddha web page to discover more, as well as a fully interactive 3D model providing detailed views and more.

Thor Barrier

The Thor Barrier

God like strength combined with Lightning fast production.
The NEW Thor Barrier is a highly robust and protective Barrier that can be deployed to guide vehicles and pedestrians on to the correct path when required. Over engineered to produce great strength, you’d need the HULK to knock it over when used with the 28 kg Footplate.


So why call it the Thor Barrier?

End Of Year Review

In Case You Missed it…

Here’s a run down of the end of year at Melba Swintex

With fantastic new products, stunning lead times and standard items constantly replenished and kept in stock, it’s no wonder we are so busy. We therefore should look back on the year so far to see where the time has gone.

Melba Swintex is Flying the Kitemark™

During the past few months, Melba Swintex has had its Traffic Cone range put through tough and vigorous testing. These tests have been conducted by BSI, the national standards body of the United Kingdom, to the technical standards set out within their publications, these of which are recognised globally as the definition and guidelines of all Temporary Traffic Cones. Its now official we have the BSI Kitemark™ for our range of cones.

Melba Swintex Traffic Cones

As the standards published by the BSI are publicly available, any company can state claims of compliance to a standard for their product. However, these claims are often not validated by an independent organisation.

The Kitemark™ on the Melba Swintex Cone range gives you the complete reassurance that it is regularly tested by BSI and meets the requirements of the standard.

Read more about the Kitemark to fully understand its true significance.
