FEG Ltd recently project managed the installation of an External Gantry.

An external platform was installed to act as an escape route from the new plant room and also to create a deck for the new plant and equipment to be craned on to before being transferred in to the plant room. The platform was also sized to accommodate a relocated condenser unit once the refrigeration plant had been installed inside the building.

An existing fork lift truck route that runs underneath the platform was to be maintained, therefore the platform was designed so that no additional support legs were required to drop down to the ground floor level. With this in mind the new platform was designed to fix to and span between the existing building steelwork between plant room 15 and the existing despatch dock building.

Manufactured from a mild steel grade S355 construction, the surface was abrasive blast clean to Swedish Standards Sa 2.5, SIS 05 5900, ISO 8501-1 prior to being finished with specialised quick drying zinc phosphate primer/build coat and cover coat paints to give a protective finish as required by client.
