We also provide high quality safety air bag fall protection, primarily to the flooring/construction industry and around delivery vehicles generally. Our main clients include Bison Precast and Forterra Building Products.
ABOUT BERESFORD’S FLOORING LTD
In our forty years of existence, the company has evolved from one fixing gang working out of Belper in Derbyshire to having over 50 men and over 25 vans working nationwide. Our head office is in Ashbourne, Derbyshire. This location enables us to provide an efficient, reliable, cost effective nationwide service. We have the flexibility to adjust bag stock to suit the job specific requirements, allowing for the need for additional small bags, larger parapet bags for steel work or bags for around a delivery trailer. We have a large stock of bags and facilities to repair bags at our head quarters in Ashbourne.
Our base has been purpose built for our needs and harnesses our innovative approach with environmentally challenging on-site issues. All rainwater that runs off the roofs of our head office buildings is channelled into an 8000 gallon storage tank. The water is filtered and recycled to wash our vans and bags. In servicing over 25 vans, we produce a significant amount of waste oil. This oil is pumped into bunded tanks and transferred to a waste oil burner. The burner uses the recycled oil to provide heat to the storage sheds and offices.
Beresford’s are renowned for continually striving to improve working practices and innovate where possible. This progressive culture harnessed with our significant site experience, has led to our recognising developments which will improve our operations (in 2000 we were one of the first companies to see the potential of the air bag passive fall arrest system) and developing many products to make flooring installation safer and more efficient.
The Beam Carriage takes much of the manual handling out of beam and block flooring installation. The Gizmo Beam Puller was invented to stop our employees being exposed to the leading edge when barring up pre-cast floor beams and the HELP (Harness Emergency Life Preserver) is a device to quickly/safely recover a worker who has fallen over the leading edge while wearing a lanyard and body harness. These are just a few of our innovations to help protect our workers.
Many of our latest innovative products offer benefits beyond the immediate flooring industry. We decided to launch an innovations division branded Massolutions.
Our products solve everyday problems on construction sites and have proved enormously popular since launch, with many customers taking advantage of the safety and efficiency benefits offered by our range of tools/devices.
