Custom Fabrication And Automation
On 10 November 2015, Pak'N Save opened a new store at 240 Ormiston Road, South East Auckland. The massive 6160m2 store employs 130 staff and has been warmly welcomed by the local community.
An integral element of the effective daily functioning and security of the supermarket site is a set of large automated gates into and out of the Inwards Goods area, at the side of the complex.
The gates were architecturally designed by Jasmax to seamlessly blend with the overall aesthetics of the site, whilst ensuring hassle-free use and robust high security. Hampden Fence was contracted to custom fabricate the large 3.1m (h) x 10m (w) sliding gates and project manage their transport to site, installation and automation.

The scale of the gates provided a number of challenges throughout the project. Their size meant they were awkward to manoeuvre during fabrication and transportation, and more complex to install than most typically smaller gates. Hampden's expert team was able to call on many years of experience and well planned processes to ensure the project was successfully completed on time and to budget.
