Fall Protection Solution for SnowDome's Solar Panel Installation

The Client

SnowDome, Tamworth, was the first UK real snow indoor skiing venue. It is a very popular indoor snow skiing and snowboarding centre with an ice rink, swimming pool and gym, located in Staffordshire.

The SnowDome complex houses a 170-metre indoor slope covered in real snow all year round and two further real snow nursery slopes, providing the perfect facilities for learning skiing and snowboarding.

In addition to the snow slopes, the SnowDome also features the Ice Arena with an ice rink and the children’s snow-play area, where kids can play a game of snowballs and slide on sledges.

In the main foyer are located 15 different climb lines across both 6 and 10 metre climbing walls, that children and adults of all ages can use in a safe and fun environment.

Within the venue, there is also a selection of bars and restaurants including a Starbucks Coffee lounge and The Aspen Food Company restaurant.

The Problem

SnowDome, a popular leisure centre, had plans to expand its existing solar panel installation on the rooftop. Prior to the installation of additional PV panels, they needed a robust fall protection system to ensure safe access for the solar panels' installation team. The challenge was to find a solution that met safety standards, was easy to install, and offered durability for long-term use.
