As the roof trusses are spread out from the surrounding scaffolding, STS Safety Trellis System mats are easy to insert and expand to provide a safe temporary working platform for the roof carpenters to fix the wind bracing, etc.
MAKE WORKING AT HEIGHT SAFER ON BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION SITES
Building operatives can face many hazards; they may be at height, they may be above voids. However, work needs to continue to schedule. Oxford Safety trellis mats increase the safety of working at height, preventing falls inside roofs, down stairways, and providing work platforms above voids; all to meet safety concerns and regulations e.g. WAHR regulations in UK. Also better productivity results from good safety equipment because operatives can proceed without worries.
For example. The Oxford Stairway Protection System uses trellis mats and adjustable frames to safeguard stairways whilst allowing easy passage of operatives and material, up and down the stairway.
STS TRELLIS MAT SYSTEM
Safety Trellis System (STS) mats cover joists to form a stable temporary work platform when spreading roof trusses and fitting bracing. These Oxford Safety mats prevent operators from falling onto the joists of the floor below, or even further; they improve productivity by making a sturdy work platform for spreading the trusses out, nailing wind bracing, inspecting the work, and any remedial tasks.
- Light-weight fall-prevention platform.
- After use, the mats are folded up and readily removed
- Suitable for hipped roofs and "top hat" trusses.
