2 Quality Installations in Tight Spaces
February 1, 2019
Our installation team showcase how Safetech’s expertise and talent can overcome the greatest of challenges.
Both the patient transport lift at the Epworth Hospital and this Dock Hoist at Bexley North presented very challenging site conditions and accessibility restrictions.
Tight corridors and small openings made installation difficult for both projects. But through the work of our talented Installation Engineers and our on-site techs, we were able to come up with solutions to get the jobs done efficiently.
Epworth Hospital Patient Lift
For the Epworth Hospital patient lift, a crane was used to get the lift close to the opening, but then we used a custom Gorbel monorail system to slide the platform into place.
Ergonomics were considered to ensure a smooth installation without risk of injury to the team.
Bexley North Goods Hoist
Bexley North was a unique challenge. The narrow street and small doorway meant only smaller vehicles and forklifts could be used during the install, so larger cranes could not be used to remove the existing Dock Hoist or insert the new Safetech Hoist.
To overcome this, the existing table was cut down into manageable pieces for removal. For the new replacement, our skilled Engineers designed a platform that consists of 3 manageable pieces, that can be assembled in position without compromising its load capacity or structural integrity.
If you have a complex site and everyone else has said they can’t help. Give us a call, because chances are, we can!
