Within any major roof works there is a requirement for Access Gantries and Walkways. These can be supplied in two main forms,either over the barrel or along the length of the roof. In both circumstances either a fixed or movable option is available, with the movable option normally being constructed from aluminium to reduce weight and assist movement along the running tracks.
Walkways can be fully supported or cantilevered from the roof structure, manufactured to modern designs and materials or those sympathetic to the original train-shed design, in some cases from 150 years ago.
All designs comply with the latest standards requirements and can incorporate full edge protection or ‘mansafe’ systems.
