Catwalks & Platforms

Customised To Suit


New ‘Prevention from Falls’ regulations (May 2004) effectively rule out the servicing of cooling towers from ladders if more than 2.0m high.

The high risk and consequences of falls from cooling towers can be controlled through the use of catwalks, platforms and handrailing around the top of the cooling tower itself.

Walkways & Platforms – Melbourne

We design and install the Juralco ‘Guardsafe’ system of aluminium catwalks to the side(s) of cooling towers which enables access to filters and fan motors. Catwalks are fully hand-railed with safety chains across ladder openings and larger cooling towers may be hand-railed on the perimeter to allow safe access to the top.

AC units suspended internally, typically between a suspended ceiling and roof, provide a challenge for carrying out maintenance safely and within occupational health & safety requirements.

Our solution is to provide catwalks and platforms alongside these units with stable and secure ladder access onto Juralco “Guardsafe’ aluminium platforms. Platforms are fully hand-railed with safety chains across openings, fitted kickboards, and are supplied with made to fit scaffold ladders which hook securely over the platform edge.

Roof Walkways Melbourne

Securely fitted to ensure minimal movement and safe traversal at varying heights Quantum Access can supply and install roof walkways for clients across Melbourne. Available in customised lengths and designs our walkways ensure that users of the walkway stay safe at all times.

Platforms & Catwalks for ease-of-care Safe Access

Maintenance-free, a Platform or Catwalk Safe Access System is the easiest Safe Access System to implement. Quantum Access has built hundreds of Safe Access Systems that are ready to use now and built to last well into the future.

Quantum Access Platforms & Catwalks

Whether it be Cooling Tower Access or Rooftops of differing Roof types, Quantum Access Platforms and Catwalks are customised to your site and through creating standard extrusions and integrating Fixed Ladder Access for easy access to mechanical fixtures.

Quantum Access builds Roof Walkway Safe Access Systems which are engineered for structural reliability and to preserve your roof thanks to our waterproofing, preventing rusting, and preserving the structure.

Cooling Towers Platform Melbourne

Perfect for allowing easy and prompt access for maintenance crews and workmen our cooling tower platforms are of the highest quality. These safe access platforms mean regular maintenance is easy and convenient to ensure prevention of Legionnaire’s disease in the cooling tower system. Melbourne industrial sites across the city can be improved by the installation of our customised and durable platforms.

All implementation is conducted by one of the specialised Quantum Access Crew.

Quantum Access’ Platform and Catwalk Safe Access Systems are well thought out to ensure no hiccups in the process which means for you that a) Quantum Access can fix onto all differing site surfaces and b) ensure short lead times for your installation.

The walkway’s structure is made from non-corrosive aluminium and 316 stainless steel. Any steel components are hot dipped galvanised.
