Edge Protection Commercial Bracket System at Yenorra

Scope Of Work

This month Stronghold Hire was asked to provide fall protection on top of 6-meter-high pre-cast concrete slabs. This was to create a safe working area for the form workers to come behind and put the formwork in ready for concrete pouring. This is something we haven’t done before and came with its own set of challenges.

Edge Protection Systems Used

As the formwork and concrete were set to come up to the top of the precast slabs, we could not use our parapet clamps. Therefore we opted to use the commercial brackets. We then drilled into the outside of the pre-casts and then fixed the brackets on the outside. We worked from an EWP and from a scaffold tower to do this.

Benefits of Commercial Bracket System

The benefit of using the commercial bracket is that like all the brackets we offer it has been designed and independently tested to be compliant with AS/NZS 4994.1:2009. This can put the client and duty holders’ minds at ease knowing they have got a fully safe and compliant system.

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 aluminum 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.
