Sayfa Systems is venturing into the US construction market with two orders for its construction site safety systems.
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and LendLease have both placed orders with Sayfa, which produces a range of solutions to ensure the safety of those working at height. Sayfa’s product concepts are new to the US.
LendLease has ordered 530 units of Sayfa’s AirDeck – a portable air cushion designed to protect those working at first-floor level – for use on its Stateside projects. Meanwhile, following promising results of a trial exploring the use of AirDeck in potential suicide situations, the LAPD has placed a second order to broaden the trial.
This international success has come following support from the Department for International Trade (DIT).
Robert Hall, marketing manager at Sayfa, said: “DIT has been excellent and we have really appreciated their support. They opened our eyes to the possibilities of trading internationally and the additional success it could bring us.”
