Background - Our clients historic use of inadequate access such as ladders and cherry pickers was proving to be costly, time consuming and hazardous for the ongoing maintenance plans to access the tanks and bund areas.
Project - The client approached DeckSafe Solutions Ltd to provide a means of safe access that gave solutions / benefits over the inherent problems associated with traditional materials such as steel,timber and concrete.
Solution - Specializing in composite materials, Decksafe Solutions designed, pre-fabricated and delivered easy to assemble GRP Ladder Access Platforms (for tank access) and GRP Step Overs (for bund access). Decksafe's GRP Access Solutions was the ideal choice to combat the inherent issues associated with traditional materials by being light weight / high strength, non- conductive, non - corrosive, non-sparking fire resistant which was key in this particular environment. Decksafe's GRP open mesh anti-slip grating was chosen for all flooring and stair treads with DDA compliant nosing to ensure the structures complies with Document M+K and the Equalities Act Guidelines.
