EASI-DEC Access Systems, a Kee Safety company, has supplied the Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget factory in Ramsbottom with a range of access solutions that provide safe access to fragile roofs and valleys for general roof maintenance.
SCA staff regularly access the roof for general maintenance so a safe access solution was required. BOARD-WALK and VALLEY-WALK, a part of the Easi-Dec’s industrial roof access range, were installed to provide secure access over the fragile roof.Both products are part of the Easi-Dec industrial roof access range and comply with relevant health and safety regulations.
A portable mesh walkway
BOARD-WALK is a portable mesh walkway which runs from the eaves to the ridges. The system spreads the weight across the support battens, allowing the workers to confidently move along the full length of the system. Made of high grade aluminium, the structure is lightweight, easily transportable and can be used on roof pitches up to 30 degrees.
Mobile walking frames
Additionally five VALLEY-WALK systems were installed on the roof to provide safe access across the valleys. The lightweight mobile walking frames are designed for one or two people when working along gutters. Outriggers are filled with safety mesh and cushioned for comfort. VALLEY-WALK is suitable for typical symmetrical valleys, but can also be adjusted to suit uneven designs.
Board-Walk has been designed to overcome the problems associated with working on fragile and industrial roofs by providing a safe working position for tasks such as skin maintenance, inspection, cleaning or re-sealing.
The lightweight aluminium walkway allows access from the eaves to ridge, whilst spreading the load on support battens.
Board-Walk is a modular system and features 2m, 3m & 4m sections which can be easily linked together, and an integral work positioning line for added safety. Each system is designed to fit individual roof sizes and configurations and can be installed to run vertically up or down or horizontally across the roof.
Board-Walk is tested to and complies with EN 12811-1 and EN 795:2012
Hatch Board-Walk allows users to bridge over a fragile valley, but to also have access to the valley below for maintenance purposes.
The Hatch version comprises 2m sections made from high grade aluminium staging which the user simply lifts to gain access to the valley. Once the work has been completed, the staging is lowered down to create a safe working platform.
