TITLE
Accessing a Linatex sand tower
ARTICLE
Accessing the site’s new Linatex sand tower for routine maintenance work has been made safer by the fabrication of a mobile platform. Concerns arose about accessing the tower’s three-foot cyclone extension to undo the bolts and allow the cyclone to be lowered to the ground by a crane. An operator would have to stand on the handrails whilst wearing a safety harness.

This process has been improved by building an extension walkway / platform, complete with handrails, kickboards and self-closing gate, which can be lifted into place using a crane.
