Order Details

easi-edge has supplied in excess of 1500 linear metres of surface fix edge protection, detailed to the exact requirement of the three storey, structural timber frame. Internally, the company’s innovative core-safe gate solution was utilised to secure lift shaft voids whilst the construction continues. Loading bays have been protected with bay-master, which constantly protects operatives whilst loading materials at height. At all levels of the building, access gates have been utilised to provide easy access for operatives to all floor levels without disrupting the edge protection.
