Platforms and Landings
Platforms and landings are surfaces which support a person working, or resting’ or just to provide a space for materials used by the person. The definition of a landing is a flat area at the top or bottom, or between two levels. Landings can be either a section of levelled walkway or a designated platform. They can be standard or custom-made, depending on the situation. Platforms and landings can also be required in numerous scenarios for circulation and are an integral part of a roof access system.
You could require a landing for your roof access on the side of a building because your building height is over 6 metres. You could also have a landing or platform on the inside the building, which is connected to your roof access ladder.
Ladder accessed platforms can provide free flowing egress in and around ladders.
Servicing plant on high pitched roofs can be quite difficult if you can’t maintain good sound footing. Simple level platforms can be a effective solution to help provide a good safe work area.
The minimum size of a landing needs to be 900 x 600mm.
We can provide service platforms for plant and equipment on all flat and pitched roofs. Plant includes; communication equipment, evaporative coolers, refrigeration and air conditioners.
Refurbishing existing plant plinths ensures they comply with current standards. This always includes the installation of new access systems, decking and handrails.
