Supplying Workable Height Safety Systems To Complex Roof Designs
Greensborough Plaza, Greensborough VIC
Greensborough Plaza has been offering a range of retail, services and leisure choices to the community for over 40 years. It has undergone two major redevelopments during this time as well as several other minor works.
Difficult and dangerous roof access to equipment to perform maintenance has long been a problem on this building due to the unique curved roofline and the Facility Managers were very aware that they needed to ensure that adequate fall protection was installed on their buildings. However, finding a winning solution was going to require innovative thinking, customised products and out of the box design.
As if there was not enough challenges, the deadline for the Greensborough Plaza project was extremely tight and to add to the complexity of the job was trying to ensure the least disruption possible to a busy suburban shopping centre.
Solution - Adaptable and Customised Walkway, Guardrail, Platforms and Ladders
SAYFA GROUP, working in collaboration with our Approved Installer, had the answer.
A specially designed SENTRY Walkway and Guardrail System was manufactured in our factory to exacting measurements which could cater to the unusual curved roof profile. These now provide dedicated pathways for personnel whenever access is required to the roofs to perform maintenance.
Platforms were installed to create a safe and easy access system to and around the water cooling towers.
KATT Ladders, with their modular on-site adaptability, were the perfect solution to work alongside the many pre-existing systems.
The Facility Managers at Greensborough Plaza now have the peace of mind that all personnel who access their roof areas can do so confident that they are protection from a fall from height.
