TITLE
Accessing screen decks / mats
ARTICLE
Instead of using ladders or a mobile platform to access the screen deck / mats, this site has devised an alternative solution. A hinged platform has been installed, which is erected by the following simple steps:
? Spray bars are removed from the screen deck
? Hinged top handrails are moved out of place
? Bottom handrails are welded onto the site of the chute – which lifts out of place on hinges
? Top handrails are put back into place
? Platform is lowered down to rest on two channel supports on the floor
? Top handrails are removed, allowing free access to the screen mats.

The new design, which can be adapted to fit any type of plant, has benefits in terms of working at height and manual handling.
