Knauf Industries has developed and is manufacturing this new industrial packaging for fire hydrants for Bayard. The protection is eco-designed, delivering the same protection and resistance functions as the previous, wooden protection but with lower environmental impact. It is made from airpop and is 7 times lighter than the former packaging (2kg instead of 15kg). It is 100 % recyclable by crushing, compacting PS granule extrusion. This multi-product packaging is designed to protect 4 different models of hydrants, so there is no need to manage several packaging references. It is customised with the Bayard logo and shows the reference of the packed hydrant. The pack is also easier to implement. It has enabled Bayard to automate its production lines, particularly by eliminating “hazardous” handling operations. On the operating side, hooking the hydrants up to the water grid is easier as installers can see how the hydrant is positioned. The packaging also saves labour costs in the production and installation process. This industrial protection is for water grids and fire protection.
