Stock Loss (through theft) has been and still remains a significant issue across our customers’ chain of stores in Australia. In an effort to combat the growing issue, our customer made the decision to alter their store entrances in combination with other loss initiatives. A major initiative in the altering of the store entrances was the rollout of glass balustrading to entrances in FY19, reducing entry widths and providing automatic barrier protection forcing customers to follow standard traffic flow when exiting the store, one that would direct them to the areas of the store that had significantly more security measures in place.
The team at S.J. Electric has been delivering projects such as this type of rollout for this supermarket chain for the last 40 years and with a national presence were the perfect partner to implement the project. In conducting the implementation of the welcome gates into store entrances S.J. Electric are completing the following works;
· Marking out the floor and chase for electrical and data cabling for Auto Gates
· Installing Auto Gates
· Hardwiring all items for above
· Commissioning of Auto Gates
In addition to the installation and commissioning of the gates, the customer engaged S.J. Electric to run new power (via a 1 gang switch for isolation) and data cabling along/through the trolley bay wall/floor (S.J. Electric chasing the floor where required) for the new digital signage media that the customer was installing in their Stores for displaying dynamic, targeted messages to increase sales, engaging customers, and providing exceptional customer media experiences.
The project to date has run seamlessly with S.J. Electric working with the stores and other third party equipment suppliers to ensure minimal disruption to trading.
