Augmented and heightened security requirements in border entry points such as ports and airports has subjected facilities maintenance crews and the infrastructure and buildings they look after to a host of new challenges.
In this case, a high level pedestrian walkway had to be navigated with some relatively heavy X-Ray machines. The corrugated and perforated nature of the surface was giving the installing engineers a real headache. Having previously used steel sheets to skate the units in with, these had to be ruled out on this occasion because of the minimal difference between the weight of the load units passing over the walkway and the mezzanines safe working load.
At our suggestion, they used a combination of GRPM’s and GPRM Minis. Despite them being HDPE, they were supportive enough to make a great job of forming a smooth runway to roll the items through the facility with ease. The relatively light weight panels were also much simpler to pass by hand from one area to the next.
