A-SAFE is shortlisted for two industry design awards, with results announced later this year. The inventor of the fixed polymer safety barrier is shortlisted for Design Team of the Year at the British Engineering Excellence Awards (BEEA’s) and Innovation & Design at the MX Manufacturing Awards.
The BEEA judges recognised A-SAFE’s RackEye™ design team for their new racking damage detection solution, a first of its kind product internationally.
The combined device, remote app and digital dashboard provides 24/7 monitoring of racking integrity and real-time alerts, recording every impact but only alerting nominated users when the impact has caused structural damage to racking.
Both awards events take place in Q4, with the British Engineering Excellence Awards lunch on Thursday 5 October at the Honourable Artillery Company in London, and the Manufacturer MX Awards on 16 November 2017 at the Kings Dock exhibition centre in Liverpool.
A-SAFE has achieved several industry awards in 2017, featuring in the HSBC International Track 200 league table for the fourth consecutive year and winning an Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Award.
James Smith, Co-Owner and Director explained: “We’re always pleased to be recognised for industry awards, and these latest shortlists confirm that we’re driving the business forward successfully when it comes to product design and innovation. Fingers crossed for further award success in 2017.”
