A Bellway Homes development has overcome time pressures and increased safety by using Sayfa Systems’ RhinoDeck load deck platform and trestle system.
Speed and simplicity of installation as well as the provision of a stable work platform both saved time and increased safety on-site. Contractor Vision Access & Safety Systems recommended the high-load RhinoDeck work platform to Bellway for its The Chase development, located between Winchester and Eastleigh.
The Rhino Load Deck System is designed for use inside a building during construction. Because the system is self-supporting, it doesn’t require contact with walls and can therefore be installed before the mortar is fully set with no risk of damage to the structure.
It provides a safe working height of up to 3m and can support an evenly distributed load of 600kg per m2. The Rhino Load Deck system has been fully tested to test procedures set out by the British Standards Institute and wholly complies with the following standards: Temporary Works Equipment BS EN 12811-1:2003, section 6.1.3 6.0kN/m2, 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.
Mark Lowes, site manager at Bellway Homes, said: “This is the first time I have used RhinoDeck but I have no reservations – I won’t be using anything else in the future.”
