HAKI has launched the second in a series of industry-focused eBooks, aimed at helping contractors and end clients understand how HAKI’s systems can safely overcome some of the challenges faced in specialist environments.
Following the successful launch of the offshore eBook in February 2019, the second eBook looks at temporary access solutions for infrastructure projects, and contains facts, videos, and project case studies.
Focusing on three main areas, the eBook addresses the following common challenges:
Safe access and egress for excavations and bridge maintenance
The eBook highlights how contractors can significantly reduce the risk of falls from height when using HAKI for infrastructure projects.
The HAKI Stair Tower has been commended by industry-bodies worldwide for providing safer access and egress – using collective fall protection, flush landings, and non-slip treads.
Bridge maintenance is also simpler using HAKISPAN – a complete lacing, bracing and decking system, that allows quick but safe suspended and bridged access.
Reducing risk to public safety
With public safety at the heart of the designs, the HAKI Public Access Stair (PAS) and Bridge System (HBS) are equipped to handle high volumes of footfall. Each has up to 7.5kN/m² loading capacity, so are suitable for access and temporary footbridges in busy public spaces such as railways, roads, and rivers.
Minimizing possession time and project programmes
Finally, the eBook addresses how sites can be reopened to the public quickly, with HAKI.
The solutions consider roll-out and crane methods of erection, creating reduced possession times, with structures being built-ahead and then positioned afterward. The prefabricated ‘hook-on’ components also reduce time to erect temporary access solutions, boosting productivity and cutting labor costs.
The eBook also demonstrates how HAKI is committed to delivering safer projects through skilled training, on-site support, engineering services, and virtual design tools.
