Axelent Australia, specialist in modular safety solutions for warehouses and machine protection, has come up with a novel way to showcase its sustainability credentials with the creation of a pack-up-and-go expo stand that is housed inside a shipping container.

The shipping container stand was on show at the recent Australian Manufacturing Week, which was held on 17-19 April at the International Convention and Exhibition Centre in Sydney.

The company says the concept came about following internal conversations around exhibiting with a range of products in a distinctive and sustainable way, highlighting their innovative edge. It was from here the idea of exhibiting in a shipping container flourished.

“There was a lot of team work and collaborating of ideas from all members of our team, and we were able to leverage skills from each and every person through the entire process – for design, construction and execution,” Drew Hoxey, managing director of Axelent, told PKN.

“It is a sustainable way to repurpose our stand and avoid unnecessary waste, while providing an interactive space for visitors and exhibitors to see and explore what we do.

“In the container, we were able to showcase a range of products – from impact and fall protection, to various machine guarding panels, cable basket tray and locks.”

The expo stand debuted to a warm reception from visitors who were impressed not only by the inventive idea, but also by the products showcased in the space.

“People thoroughly enjoyed experiencing the products' modularity, while recognising and seeing the positive impact it would make to the safety, efficiency and look to their own projects,” Hoxey added.

In terms of what was on show, Axelent launched the latest addition to the impact protection range – the Floor Barrier, which is built to protect building perimeters and withstand low-height impacts from vehicle forks, robots and pallet movements.

Responding to market demands, Axelent created the product to integrate with its current impact protection range.

Axelent Australia also had its recent slide-swing machine safety door on display from a container door, which is a unique configuration that allows a slide and swing capability to maximise space and access when needed.
