Kattsafe

Sayfa is now Kattsafe

We’ve built a name for ourselves by continuously innovating safer, simpler height access and fall protection systems, and now it’s time for our business to evolve too.

Bringing everything we do under one new name makes it even simpler to work with us and use our products. And behind it all, we’re still the same team, quality products, and customer service that you’ve come to expect.

Lift pit deck, 380 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne VIC

Welded steel platforms have traditionally been used for lift pit access. They can be cumbersome and hard to work with and require exact measurements to be provided for manufacture. Get those measurements wrong and the whole system may need to be re-fabricated.

The situation

Welded steel platforms have traditionally been used for lift pit access. They can be cumbersome and hard to work with and require exact measurements to be provided for manufacture. Get those measurements wrong and the whole system may need to be re-fabricated.

Assembly in confined areas can cause additional issues including the problem of physically getting the heavy equipment into the location and then the use of hot welding works to install the units.

Otis Australia had struggled with their client's existing welded steel platform and when they required a simpler more modular solution they contacted Kattsafe to design a platform system that would provide access to their lift pits.

Solution

Having found the previous steel platform system difficult to work with, our access system's modularity and lightweight aluminium construction was exactly what Otis and their client were looking for.

The access platforms were tailored to suit the site conditions and with the ability to be adjusted in situ the stress of obtaining exact measurements was a thing of the past.

Being modular, the access platforms could be supplied in loose components and transported to the exact location by hand without the need for heavy lifting equipment - another important benefit when working in such small spaces.

Although appearing simple in design, the installation could have led to frustration. The team had to make allowances for all the other elements within the lift pit and effectively build the system around them.

Otis were able to install the access platform themselves using basic power tools, making any minor modifications as required using the Kattsafe T-bolt.

The quick and hassle free install has cemented Kattsafe's modular benefits to the team at OTIS, notwithstanding the significant cost savings that they received by utilising their own staff for the assembly.
