Edge Protection Chris O'Brien Life House

This month we were asked to provide a safe working area on the rooftop of an eight-story building in Camperdown. The client was doing a number of tasks from replacing old flower beds and re-waterproofing the area.

Systems Used

One of the standout features of the Life House is its perimeter parapet wall. Recognizing the strength and support it provides, our team expertly fixed the parapet clamp onto this wall. A significant advantage was the pre-setting of the brackets according to the hob width. This choice minimized noise – a vital consideration given the sensitive hospital environment we were operating within.

Benefits of Edge Protection System

Every project comes with its unique set of challenges. Here, the operational hours of the hospital dictated our working schedule, necessitating precise time management. The logistical hurdle of transporting 6-meter-long aluminum tubes to the top floor could have been a major setback. However, our solution – cutting the tubes in half and utilizing the goods lift – ensured efficiency. This method not only expedited our work but also broadened our approach for future projects. Our commitment to a no-drill setup was doubly beneficial, ensuring minimal noise disruption and negating the need for later patch-ups.

Versatile Edge Rail Systems

The edge rail systems that we offer are very versatile and can adapt to many different scenarios. With noninvasive options and a wide variety of brackets, we can usually find a solution for most work-at-height needs. Also, we offer both heavy-duty steel scaffold and lightweight aluminium scaffold, sometimes used in conjunction with the edge rail system, we can usually find a suitable, cost-effective solution to eliminate your fall from height risks. All edge rail systems are compliant with AS/NZS 4994.2 and scaffolding standards AS/NZS 4576 and AS/NZS 1576.
