Ascent Aluminium Walkway
The complex geometric shape of modern buildings often means that it is not possible to use standard roof walkway systems to access all areas of the building. Due to the requirement to provide a levelled surface on walkways the fixing details, support frame and grillage panels on the system need to be adaptable to the roofs geometry.
Eurosafe Solutions designs, supplies, and installs the Ascent aluminium grillage system. The functional advantages of this grating, it’s incredibly high static quality, easy and quick assembly and the high stability of the product, allows us to produce walkway systems from simple 600mm wide flat panels fitted directly to the roof sheet, to unique levelled hinged systems incorporating tapers and level changes to cope with the complexity of the roofs geometry.
Eurosafe Solutions will provide a full design service for this product supplying our client with a full set of drawings or 3D models detailing our proposal, and engineering calculations to substantiate its suitability for use. The panels can be made in a wide range of widths, depths and profiles as well as various finishes to ensure that we give you the product that exactly meets your requirements.
The aluminium roof access walkway and handrail has been designed as a lightweight roof access system for general cleaning and maintenance purposes. The system is designed to B.S. 6399: part 1: 1996.
Aluminium walkways provide a high quality aesthetically pleasing finish which is often difficult to achieve with other materials, whilst the panel retains a high residual value and is fully recyclable. To enhance the appearance of the walkway panels further, they can be either anodised or paint powder coat finished.
The aluminium walkway system is made up of lightweight panels which are approximately one third of the weight of steel panels of similar form and are virtually maintenance free. It offers the benefits of a modular system that can be altered to suit each specific requirement, with a non-slip serrated surface and the ability to be installed with or without handrail to both sides or to one side only. The system can be levelled to 10° and can be fitted to numerous roof types, although it is especially suited to standing seam type roofs.
The grillage system can be designed to incorporate steps and ladders to provide a full access system where required.
