The Industrial Roof Access Equipment has been designed to overcome the challenges of working on fragile roofs, and provides the user with a safe working position for skin maintenance, inspection, cleaning or re-sealing work. The industrial roof access equipment is intended to simplify short duration roof work.
The Board-Walk system is an open mesh walkway that allows access from eaves to ridge whilst spreading the load on support battens to provide the user with a safe working position. The system is lighweight, easily portable and suitable for fragile roofs.
The Roof-Walk system has been designed for use on industrial and fragile roofs. Roof-Walk is a fully guarded rolling work platform mounted on twin tracks to enable movement up and down the roof.
The Valley-Walk system is a mobile walking frame for one or two persons, designed to aid access along valley gutters and to provide mobile roof cover. Easy to transport and assemble, the unit features cushioned outriggers for comfort which are filled with safety mesh. The Valley-Walk is suitable for typical symmetrical valleys and can be adjusted to suit asymmetrical designs such as northern lights.
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.
