cc The issue of edge protection on building sites when working on open edges of concrete slabs is a constant safety issue. Despite various techniques and methods being employed over the years, a tried and proven method has been the installation of mesh panels with clip lock safety handrail posts. Although there are a variety of names given to this technique including, temporary edge protection, safety fencing, perimeter edge protection, and handrail protection, possibly the most common name is mesh panel fencing. The utilisation of mesh panel fencing is a quick and efficient method of providing a safety fence at the slabs edge.
The mesh panels come in 2400 mm long lengths and are locked into the safety handrail posts via an approved clip lock system. This safety handrail post is mechanically fastened into the slab via drilling and insertion of approved holding down bolts. The advantages of mesh panel fencing in this edge protection environment as opposed to other techniques such as external scaffold tube and fitting, or safety handrails with provision for supporting cross timber rails, is that the complete slab edge area is meshed and the fences are mechanical locked into position. These mesh panels can be easily removed individually once an area is deemed safe and the risk of fall has been eliminated. This safety fencing technique also has an advantage over handrail timber systems as it eliminates a top, mid rail and base kick board. This is due to the mesh panel being all encompassing. The mesh panels and supporting handrail posts weigh less than 15 kg and can be easily man handled. For high rise projects, mesh panels and safety hand rail posts can be delivered carefully strapped on pallets for ease of lifting via the sites crane or forklift. A modular reusable system, which despite numerous attempts continues to be one of the most popular safety fence techniques for providing an approved edge protection to an otherwise exposed slab edge.
The Plant Yard Pty Ltd continues to add mesh panel fencing, safety handrails, and other specialist handrail systems to its hire equipment.
