Pump House provides access

Published:  01 August, 2018

Pump House

Pump House has provided an external rooftop access ramp for a proposed route out of a building down onto the flat roof.

The solution had to be fully adjustable against typical flat roof falls, yet not penetrate the waterproofing below. Steelwork was hot dip galvanised whilst landings and Pump House supplied a non-slip 8mm thick GRP sheet to the full extent of the landing areas.

The solution was supplied with full handrail and kick plates to all exposed sides to ensure safety of pedestrians and cargo. 

Pump House prepared full working AutoCAD drawings for approval, prior to the start of manufacturing. Once approved, the solution was made in smaller landing modules which facilitated easier lifting and fitting by the installers on site. All modules were identified by number, which in-turn was cross-referenced within an installation drawing that we supplied. This simplified the installation on the roof which in turn provided a fast, unimpeded fitting of the solution. Complete assembly was achieved in only four hours.

All Pump House access solutions are designed to comply with British Standards where appropriate. All necessary fixings for the products are supplied and Pump House technical staff will attend site on the day of installation to supervise the correct assembly of the goods.
