Melbourne’s Sandown Raceway (Ladbrokes Park) is a motor racing circuit 25km southeast of the city centre and is now one of Australia's oldest permanent motor racing facilities, also housing a busy horse racing circuit within its perimeter.
The expansive grandstand and club facility roof is a highly frequented area as there is a lot of plant equipment, including refrigeration and air conditioning units. The area is also frequently accessed by film crews when televising events.
To protect both the maintenance workers and the roof surface, the Sandown Facility needed a compliant, lightweight, and durable access solution that could withstand the test of time and be simple to install and use.
SAYFA Group worked with Anchor Safe to design a safe access solution, comprising of 280 metres of KOMBI Elevated Platform along the entire roof length, 34 ALTO Modular Step Ladders, multiple ALTO Modular Bridges, 3SIXTY Roof Mount Anchors and multiple roof mounted PACE600 Aluminium Walkway lengths, installed for safe access when maintenance workers are working at height and closer to the roof edge.
Access around the roof space was once limited by the multiple parapets in place on the roof, but with KOMBI Platforms, all access systems were raised above the parapets to create a simple and effective walkway without obstructing the existing structure.
“On a project this size we want to have suppliers we can rely on, with a quality product, and delivered in the right time frame. To have SAYFA supporting us the whole way through that journey really increases our relationship with the client.”
- Doug Grace, National Sales Manager, Anchor Safe
“The outcome has been great, our contractors love it. It’s so easy for them.”
– Steve Fairclough, Assistant Facilities Manager, Sandown Racing Club
