INITIAL CONSULTATION TO DETERMINE YOUR ACCESS PLATFORM REQUIREMENTS
The surveyor will take accurate measurements whilst on site and take you through our proposal for your access requirements. We will then produce concept sketches for you to visualise your safe working at height solution.
The bespoke access platforms or scaffold safety solution will not only satisfy the requirements of the working at height regulations 2005 (WAHR), but moreover, it will provide your company and its employees with safe, industry regulated products to fulfil Health and Safety requirements of the workplace.
FULL CAD DETAILS OF YOUR BESPOKE ACCESS PLATFORMS
Once you have agreed that our initial proposal meets your requirements, one of our CAD team will produce 3D modelled approval drawings using for you to consider and review.
All our designs are produced using the highly capable, mechanical specific, Autodesk Inventor Professional Design Suite.
Any comments or changes you would like to feed back to us will be listened to and actioned, so that designs and products meet your needs as accurately as possible.
Revised drawings will then be provided for your approval. When both parties mutually agree that your product requirements have been met / adhere to your specific requirements, we will then analyse the CAD model(s) in detail using NASTRAN-In-CAD, in accordance with the specified test and loading criteria identified by relevant British standards/Eurocodes.
This considerate and thorough approach to your product’s development ensures that you will receive an item of unbeatable quality.
