Big Foot Systems shows its versatility on the roof

This installation of roof-top plant and louvres as part of a full HVAC refurbishment for a laboratory in London makes extensive use of non-penetrative support solutions from Big Foot Systems. The new plant included air-handling units, services and control panels. To conceal the plant, louvres were installed on a non-penetrative louvre screen support with heavy-duty beams to shield the plant from view.

Joe Rose, technical marketing manager with Big Foot Systems, says, ‘Our versatility was put to the test on this project as unit placement was not in line with the original roof plan supplied, meaning some alterations were needed.

‘However, the contractor was able to adjust the system as required by the updated plan, and the end result was very well received.

‘We combined technical experience and forward thinking to create the best solution, and the overall feedback for this project has been very positive.’

The support systems also ensure that the plant will be easy to access for maintenance in the future.
