Whether staff need to navigate across a single pipe, a boundary wall or a network of cables, Step Overs will ensure that they stay safe while preventing the pipes, walls or cables from getting kicked, stepped on and damaged.
Built to suit each site, a Step Over or Hop Over can be constructed to any height, width or length and is usually supplied ready-made for quick and easy installation. GRP is less than half the weight of the steel equivalent, so most Step Overs can be placed manually – no heavy lifting equipment is required. It is also long-lasting and low-maintenance.
As with all our GRP fabrications, Step Overs are built to a minimum Safe Working Load of 5kN/m2 to allow for the weight of two or three large workmen and all the tools and equipment they may be carrying. Similarly, we also meet BS EN ISO 14122, BS EN 5394-1 and BS 4592-6.
Usually fabricated using QuartzGrip® Standard Mesh Grating and Stair Treads with SafeRail™ ergonomic Handrails, they can be made to your own specifications.
