Pump House provides rooftop access

Pump House, rooftop access

Pump House has provided an external rooftop access ramp solution 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 had to be hot dip galvanised whilst landings needed to offer good slip resistance. 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 safe passage of pedestrians and cargo.

Pump House prepared full working AutoCAD drawings for approval, prior to manufacture start. Once approved, the solution was manufactured 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 our solution in only four hours.
