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.

Trundle & Peak Hill Solar Farms, Parkes, NSW

The Trundle & Peak Hill Solar Farms, which together boast over 35,000 solar panels, are making a major contribution to Australia's greenhouse reductions.

The situation

These remote solar farms, both located near Parkes approx 400km west of Sydney, required the installation of platforms to enable maintenance crews access to raised inverter skids.

Systems under consideration had to be no-weld, modular and require no special skills or tools to assemble. There were also no cranes on-site so lightweight, easily handled components were needed.

Additionally, strict guidelines were in place that the type of systems used must comply to Australian Standards and be engineered to tolerate specific wind loads.

Solution

All Kattsafe modular access systems are compliant to Australian Standards AS 1657 and AS/NZS 1170 so meeting with this criteria was just "business as usual".

However, the Kattsafe Technical Team had to conduct further testing to ensure the platforms were engineered to withstand the specified wind loads before production could begin.

The decision was made to fabricate and pre-assemble at Kattsafe's manufacturing facility and then deliver the platforms and stairs to site in modules. The modules could be bolted together on-site and modified, if necessary, to suit the site conditions.

Design drawings were produced using the Kattsafe Builda.

3D drawings gives clients a visual representation of their systems.

All installation was done without the requirement of specialist tools or trades due to the patented T-Bolt fastening system.

As a first time user of Kattsafe components the installer was amazed as to how quickly and easily the modules went together, making for a fast and effective install and a very happy client!

Project outcome

The product was incredibly easy to design and assemble. The flexibility in design, as well as the ability to disassemble and repurpose if needed in future, made this product a great choice.
