The three images show that with RAPID EPS the beam and barrier was erected as one set up on the steel floor beams.
This procedure uses the standard RAPID post and barrier fixings installed on the ground prior to steel erection; no extra equipment is needed for this difficult manoeuvre.
The installation of the beam with the barrier already attached eliminates working at height without a barrier.
It eliminates the need for a follow on extra crew of men & MEWP’s to install the traditional scaffold edge protection. Also the installation is much quicker than the traditional scaffold edge protection.
Battlefields EfW, Shropshire UK
Steel framed Energy from Waste plant.
These images show RAPID’s temporary stairwell protection at work in this power station build. The challenge with this type of edge protection is that stair dimensions vary a lot, with the width of returns being vastly different, so no standard size tubes can be manufactured to provide these barriers. Traditionally crews chop-up scaffold to fit stairs, a task that could take up to four days. With the RAPID system the tubes are telescopic (see Image 1 and 2) so dressing of stairs takes minutes. The system also has unique telescopic debris guards (Image 3) offering full edge protection down the flights and the landings and half landings. RAPID’s temporary stair protection also works with timber stairs.
Mayfield Secondary School, UK
Cross laminated timber buildings for a secondary school.
A large project with just under 2km of RAPID EPS barriers. Image 1 shows the barriers used over a roof line, Image 2 gives some indication of the size of this timber framed build. One unique benefit of the RAPID system is that the surface fix only needs two fixings which is significantly less than traditional edge protection systems that typically require six fixings. This is yet another reason why the RAPID EPS system is so fast to erect.
Portland Place, Newcastle UK
Steel frame student accommodation block.
Image 1 shows the beams dressed with the RAPID EPS edge protection system at ground level. This installation required no secondary fix, the barrier is installed on the beam using the standard RAPID EPS equipment and is safe to lift and install as a unit. Image 2 shows the RAPID EPS barriers fixed to the steel beam within a box section.
Riverside Road Offices, Lowestoft UK
Steel framed office complex.
These three images show that with RAPID EPS the beam and barrier go in as one, with three barriers set up on this beam. The sequence shows this happening despite an awkward connection between the I beam and web, where the beam has to be fed between two sides, being installed with a significant tilt. Because the barriers are secure they can be angled like this without risk. This procedure uses the standard RAPID post and barrier fixings; no extra equipment is needed for this difficult manoeuvre. The installation of the beam with the barrier already attached eliminates working at height without a barrier.
St George’s Tower, London, Uk
St George Wharf Tower, also known as the Vauxhall Tower or The Tower, is a residential skyscraper in Vauxhall, London, part of the St George Wharf development. At 181 metres tall with 50 storeys, it is the tallest residential building in the UK.This procedure uses the standard RAPID post and barrier fixings; no extra equipment is needed.
Various Developments, Toronto, Canada
Various Developments throughout Toronto, Canada. These procedures use the standard RAPID post and barrier fixings and also Slab grab; no extra equipment is needed.
