Health & safety in the workplace involves many different aspects, one of which is protection from fire. A sprinkler system is often the first line of defence: one such system was recently installed at a food production facility in Scunthorpe and Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd were called in to provide a suspended scaffolding structure to facilitate its installation.
The proposed positioning of the scaffolding, which was planned on a large scale, meant that the best option was aluminium tubing. The first phase involved scaffold and loading being erected around a forklift doorway; this had to be installed in such a way as to permit full operational access throughout. A purpose-created opening allowed scaffolding kit to pass into the roof space of the building and all of the tubing was lifted carefully by hand.
Operatives transferred necessary equipment into the area over a distance equivalent to three football pitches before assembly could begin. Towards the end of operations, smaller areas (including the boiler room) required extra walkways, which our operatives were quickly able to provide.
Once all of the work was completed and the sprinkler system properly installed, our team quickly and efficiently dismantled all of the scaffolding components, ensuring that the premises were left in a clean, secure state.
This is just one of the many successfully completed projects by Mitchell's Scaffolding Ltd. Many of our projects have been collated for your convenience onto a dedicated 'portfolio' page, which you can check out right here on our website.
