At Heras we devote our energy to the climate. This starts with making the right choices. We diminish our CO2 emissions, waste and energy consumption. Next to that, we continuously innovate and aim to improve our products and processes by making them more durable. To optimize this, we join forces through collaboration with both our suppliers and customers.
Example: durable fencing at Coolblue
Fencing for the Coolblue grounds was chosen that is constructed with bars of approximately 2.5 metres in height with a cross-section of 26 mm. The bars are galvanised and powder coated with a deep black colour. At the site, the posts are embedded in concrete in such a way that the posts have a resistant capacity from all sides.
In addition to 1,031 linear meters of Grence fencing, Heras has supplied six electric sliding gates, four swing gates and ten barriers equipped with communication columns. Moreover, a contract was entered into to maintain all materials installed by Heras.
The Heracles and Atlas are part of the sustainable Grence product range and are a consequence of the Heras Climate Aware programme introduced in 2010. The programme focuses on drastically reducing energy consumption and waste flows and gradually reducing CO2 emissions during production. As a result, Heras was the first in the fencing industry to obtain the CO2 Awareness Certificate Level 5.
