SWALEDEK Fall Prevention System – Assembly

Assembly on Site

SWALEDEK is assembled using two operatives, starting in one corner and working away in both directions until the area is filled. Both people work at ground level and there is no need for access onto the deck itself apart for inspection purposes, therefore fall risk is eliminated.

SWALEDEK can be erected on any floor with a flat surface, if used on upper floor joists, either the final floor covering should be laid, or a covering of suitable temporary boarding. Stairwells should be covered in all cases.

SWALEDEK decks weigh 10.5kg each and can be individually lifted safely by one person.

Erection of SWALEDEK is accessed from underneath and normal daily inspection is made easy with all components visual and accessible.

SWALEDEK can be hired from local scaffolding and plant hire companies for self erection on site.

SWALEDEK can be offered as an add-on service for scaffolding packages on a hire and erect basis.

SWALEDEK can be purchased outright, offering savings on larger, long term projects where overall hire costs may outweigh initial purchase costs, with some residual value remaining at the end of the project.
