Unusual Plastic Bins.

GWP Correx solves check-in desk bin problem at Heathrow’s Terminal 2

When project managers at London’s Heathrow Terminal 2 struggled to find bins to fit new check-in desks, and with a high profile opening date just weeks away, they were delighted to discover that GWP Group could quickly solve their problem.

The one hundred and twenty-six new check-in desks are an unusual shape so standard off the shelf bins would not fit. With no time for a site visit, GWP Group designers worked from rough sketches and photographs and developed a prototype bin, made from Correx®, a plastic material more often used to make reusable packaging.

Within three weeks, the bins were manufactured and supplied just in time for opening day.

Additional Benefits of Using Correx®

GWP Correx is able to offer a wide range of products and handling solutions fabricated from Correx®. This includes picking bins, handling trays, dividers, stackable totes and boxes and also can be used as a replacement for traditional corrugated cardboard packaging.

GWP Correx offer a custom design service, whilst keeping a range of materials in stock ensures that we can provide exceptionally short lead times and remain competitive on very large or very small orders.

The check in bins required for the new Heathrow Terminal 2 were a very peculiar shape, meaning only a custom solution would work

Success of the Heathrow Correx® bins

Terminal 2’s Project Manager, Paul Wilson, said he was pleased with the end product and with the excellent service that he received from GWP Group.

Heathrow bins
The Heathrow bins designed and manufactured by GWP Correx are surprisingly complex in their design

The bins, sited underneath the check-in desks, are used for waste ticket stubs and luggage tags that are discarded during passenger check in.

However, the size and shape required meant only a custom solution would fit in the available space.

Happy customers of GWP Group

It may have been a small problem in the scheme of a four-year multi-million pound re-development of the terminal, but sourcing of the check-in desk bins had turned into quite a headache. GWP really helped us out. They quickly came up with a simple but very effective solution. We’re very pleased with the outcome and we had quite a fun and successful team building hour putting them all together!
