VERTIRAIL-transstockeur-VERTICCH-securite hauteur

A stacker crane system secured by VERTIC Switzerland!

Let’s go on a tour to Bern! Where our subsidiary VERTIC Suisse was a few weeks ago, to support a partner in securing its stacker crane system.

Fully automatic, this system just picks up the goods stored in the shelves as needed. This one is also equipped with ladders, which allow regular inspections throughout the year.

 

It is precisely to ensure the operators safety on these means of access, that VERTIC has installed 75 meters of VERTIRAIL vertical fall protection rail.

A small constraint just came up: the need to immobilize each stacker crane for a maximum of 2 hours.

 

Challenge accepted and perfectly met! The five 15m-VERTIRAIL were pre-assembled, and the installation took finally 1h30 per ladder, including dismantling of the old existing system!

 

Congratulations to the teams!

VERTIC & ALPIC have a sweet break

A year and a half ago, we installed our first hives on the roof. Summer is here and it is time for our teams to harvest the honey!

After having collected the honey supers on each hive and removed the wax lid closing each alveolus, our collaborators use an extractor to collect naturally the honey. And so nothing gets lost, the remaining wax and the rest of the material used during the extraction, are left outside so that the bees come to get the remaining honey.

 

Now it’s time for maturation, before potting and tasting!

 

VERTIC & ALPIC are fully committed to the protection of biodiversity and sustainable development. ISO 14001 certified, we manage strictly waste and implement actions to reduce our environmental impact on a daily basis.

 

Focus on… the International Olympic Committee’s (I.O.C.) project in Lausanne

Focus on… the International Olympic Committee’s (I.O.C.) project in Lausanne

The construction of the new I.O.C. headquarter in Lausanne is close to the end. Its sophisticated architecture has been designed to convey the energy of an athlete in motion. However the master piece remains the central staircase opened to the outside and representing the overlapping Olympic rings.

 

Closed by a huge skylight, this opening requires a regular intervention of cleaning and maintenance operators. In order to enables them safe and easy work in suspension, VERTIC Suisse (Switzerland) has installed nearly 170 m of ALTIRAIL fall protection rail system all along the glazed façade.

Unique through its architecture, so is also this project through its LEED® environmental certification. This eco-responsible building is totally committed to energy performance and environmental respect. Choice of material, water efficiency, work environment,…all these criteria are part of the evaluation to get the LEED® standard.

External partners need also to comply with these requirements. Certified ISO 14 001 v.2015, VERTIC Suisse has been able to provide its Significant Environmental Aspects (S.E.A.) and precise life cycle analysis of VERTIC’s ALTIRAIL system. In other words, all the action plans implemented to measure and reduce its impact on the environment.

 

Congratulations to them!

 


 

To go further: what is LEED®?

 

LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a North American standard created in 1998 by the U.S. Green Building Council (U.S.G.B.C.), which is a non-profit government organization. It aims to certify new construction projects or building renovations, whether they are tertiary, logistics, institutional or private.

 

Based on rating criteria such as optimization of water consumption, energy & atmosphere, materials & resources, or indoor environmental quality, …, it provides every tools professionals need to:

  • improve their buildings quality,
  • measure their impact on the environment,
  • reduce their operating costs,
  • improve the construction quality and the building itself.

LIDL & VERTIC celebrate their one year of collaboration!

LIDL & VERTIC celebrate their one year of collaboration!

It has been one year since the beginning of our partnership with the German company LIDL, which has been established in France for nearly 25 years. Awarded for 4 consecutive years as “Best Retail Chain in all categories“, the company has also been working on the modernization of its stores and strengthening its presence in France.

 

VERTIC, the company S.T.S. Sécurité Toitures Services & the DELTA PLUS group, have mobilized specific resources to meet LIDL’s safety requirements and needs.
At this point, more than 80 stores have been secured with collective protection: crinoline ladders and nearly 22,000 meters of guardrails!

 

Proud of this partnership, we would like to give a special thank to LIDL for their trust and to all the teams for their investment.
