ATEC is a medical technology company focused on revolutionising the approach to spine surgery. To ensure their health and safety requirements were met, Pallet Racking Solutions were committed to installing a handrail to suit their specific needs.
The client was after a handrail for their raised concrete floor.
The handrail was a Health and Safety requirement. The customer was working on additional upgrades in their warehouse, and the Council required sign-off for both the handrail and the new upgrades.
This was difficult as we hadn’t supplied side-mounted rails before. There was also a lot of custom cutting required to achieve the desired angles for the stairs and ramp.
PRS worked with the client’s builder. After confirming that the regular floor-mounted barriers wouldn’t work, we suggested modifying the product.
Our team cut and drilled the horizontal rails we usually use onsite to make new side-mounted vertical rails.
We created a side-mounted handrail with a loading gate attached to the front of the concrete slab and the side of the wooden ramp.
We successfully installed the side-mounted barrier system with gates and kick plates. We achieved compliance and met customers’ needs for inbound pallets.
