TITLE
Handrails around the screen deck platform
ARTICLE
The handrails around the screen deck platform
offered no protection when working on top of the screen deck itself when changing the meshes.

The foreman fitter designed several extra sections of platform with removable rails at the ends to allow protection from falling over the end of the deck. Access when working on the drives and shaft assemblies was improved by positioning the extra platforms opposite the shaft housings. Maintenance activity was also improved by creating more room to work.
