Established in 1516, The Royal Mail Group plc is the UK’s most popular postal service, initially operating as a department of the English government – the companies subsidiary “Royal Mail Group Limited” runs the brands Parcelforce Worldwide and Royal Mail.

As of 2019, the Royal mail group operates a total of 37 distribution centres – the largest of which is the worldwide hub at Heathrow Airport, Slough. The enormous hub itself has thousands of people under its employment, with health and safety key, and rigorously planned out routes aimed for efficiency.

Holding over 25 years of experience in the line marking industry, Riggotts know precisely how to approach the task ahead in keeping Royal Mail and its employees safe.

In total, the line marking carried out onsite was as follows; four arrows, seven speed roundels, 61 pedestrian logos, 260 metres squared of solid areas, 443 letters and numbers, and almost 4000 metres of line marking.

The Riggotts team carried out the works with their single pack epoxy paint. To improve adhesion and longevity of the line marking, all surfaces were prepared using their specialist captive shot blasting equipment.

All in all, the project was a great success, with all works completed on time and to budget.

Magor Distribution Centre requires a full refresh

24th January 2020by galinar84News

The hustle and bustle of a fully functioning distribution centre is hard to compare with – the amount of traffic and other HGV vehicles which roam these vast centres are known offenders for accentuating line marking wear and tear.

To combat such line marking munching machines, Riggotts have the perfect recipe for sustaining and improving the longevity of line markings on-site – correct surface preparation and improved sealing to ensure complete adhesion.

Looking to Wales and stepping back almost 15 years – Riggotts completed this colossal distribution centre for Wilkinsons in Magor, a large village in Monmouthshire, South-East Wales.

The Wilkinsons Distribution centre has been a client of Riggotts for almost 15 years since the site was initially opened 15 years ago. When they required a complete line marking refresh, we knew precisely what to do.

After a significant resurfacing program, one of the Riggotts Thermoplastic teams was on the way to completely reline and refresh the newly finished surface.

With thousands of metres of line marking already completed on the Magor project, the Riggotts team have kept to their stringent time scale – minimising client disruptions.

Togeather, the new thermoplastic line markings and resurfaced tarmac make the perfect conditions for adhesion, extending the life of the line markings.

In addition to improving the aesthetics of the site, the new and improved line markings add to upgraded health and safety while enhancing the efficiency of the highly used roadways.

Improving efficiency doesn’t just improve the speed; it saves valuable time and money, which then can be put to good use elsewhere.

Distribution Line Markings for VolkerFitzpatrick

15th October 2019by galinar84News

One of the UK’s leading engineering and construction companies contacted Riggotts to carry out essential line marking at one of their ongoing projects at a distribution centre.

VolkerFitzpatrick operates in the civil engineering, building and rail industries as a contractor, turning over more than £500m per year and employing over 650 people throughout the UK. As a returning client, VolkerFitzpatrick knew what to expect from the Riggotts team: A high-quality product, on time and to budget.

The project in Riggotts’ sights was a distribution centre, requiring new line marking in both thermoplastic and single pack epoxy spray.

The line marking was required to be clearly defined, durable and well laid out in order to create a safer workspace for employees/customers and improve efficiency in and around the centre. Within the distribution centre grounds, the lines would be heavily trafficked by HGVs and large vehicles, however, the high quality of the product used by the Riggotts operatives meant there wouldn’t be a problem with longevity.

In total, the experienced Riggotts crew completed; 27 disabled logos, 17 EV logos, 16 1200mm letters/numbers, 30 pedestrian logos, 23m2 solid areas, 10,919m 100mm white lining, 22m 300mm white lining, 200m 100mm white hatching, 618m 100mm yellow lining and 571m 100mm yellow hatching. All the lining was carefully carried out to the maximum efficiency to improve the product durability.

With the customer’s best interests at heart, Riggotts managed to complete the required works on time and to budget while providing the distribution centre with crucial line marking which boosted health and safety throughout the site and improved efficiency for the densely trafficked areas.
