Our innovative Board-Walk walkway system was supplied to a large roofing client for use on a roof belonging to one of the UK’s premium cider brands.
Our client’s customer – a leading cider producer and seller – was seeking a suitable access system for a programme of roof maintenance works.
After an initial meeting, we were invited to demonstrate the Board-Walk temporary safe access walkway to our client’s manager, as well as the customer’s Head of Maintenance. Based on this meeting, the Board-Walk with Single-Sided handrails was chosen for accessing valley gutters across the roof safely.
Valley gutters, as with many other types of fragile roof, can be lethal to those carrying out work at height. They can often even be more dangerous than obvious risks such as leading edges.
The customer also chose Board-Walk with Double Handrails for works up and over the fragile roof coverings.
The Board-Walk is a fantastic solution for a range of fragile roof work tasks, including maintenance and resealing. The lightweight aluminium walkway allows access from eaves to ridge whilst spreading the load on support battens. Incredibly portable, the open mesh walkway ensures full visibility, and additional optional handrails maximise safety.
Both the client and the customer were very happy with the result. Subcontractors accessing the roof now have safe, reliable walkways for planned maintenance.
The customer also plans to revisit the Board-Walk product for another phase of works.
