AIANO was recently contacted to provide fluorescent light guards for a project at the 02 Arena in Greenwich, London. The 02 arena is inside the famous Millennium Dome and is regarded as the ‘world’s busiest music venue’ and regularly hosts the largest names in music.
The customer had a requirement for 158no fluorescent light guards, which needed to be provided within a fairly short time period. The customer decided to go with our Aiano Vario range of guards, which is an alternative to our Classic range of guard for use on larger projects. Vario guards are made from the same strong mesh and expert manufacturing as our standard guards, however they have less rod so are lighter and more cost effective.
The contractor was keen to have the guards powder coated a specific Dark Grey based on its Dulux colour. In cases like this AIANO endeavours to meet our customer’s requirements. AIANO is able to meet most requirements regarding powder coating.
AIANO received the order on the 6th of September and the fluorescent light guards needed be delivered by the end of September which, for a project this size, is a quick turnaround. Guards must first be manufactured and then sent off site to be powder coated in batches. Each guard also needed to be checked individually to ensure that it met the high standards that our customers expect from us. This required careful management to ensure that the project remained on schedule. With careful planning AIANO was able to ensure that the guards were delivered within the required timeframe.
AIANO Bespoke light guards
AIANO has been creating wire mesh guards for over 150 years and the knowledge and expertise has been passed from generation to generation. As a result we are able to design bespoke solutions for most projects.
You can find some other examples of AIANO bespoke light guards on our blog, for example AIANO was asked to supply 500 fluorescent light guards for an Asda supermarket. We also manufactured Bespoke pole-mounted floodlight guards for a school in East London. Our engineers were able to work from diagrams of the fitting to manufacture guards which could be screwed over the front of the floodlights.
If you have special requirements, do not hesitate to contact us for a quotation. We can make guards to all sizes and requirements. Please call Scott or Gokay on 020 7987 1184 or email us if you would like to discuss your requirements, or for further information or advice on AIANO guards.
