Design, Supply and installation of Height Safety/Rope Access rail system for Sydney University RIGCOM Access secured the 3 year contract with University of Sydney late last year and the first update that was required was for the install of a Height Safety/Abseil system on top of one of the University’s buildings. With the required solution there were several possible options for the client. The first is we could have installed all anchor points. The issue with that solution is that some of the areas were close to being 2m from the edge. Because of this the required positioning of the anchors would have had to be within reaching distance of each other. Which really would be impractical when moving around the roof top. Another issue with just using anchor points is the structure we were installing onto was vertical concrete. And Anchor points can’t be in direct pull when used for Rope Access/Fall Protection. The second option was the use of a Capital Safety Uni8 cable system, installed directly onto the wall and anchor points into the steelwork. The only issue with this was that cable systems are not designed to be used for Rope Access. The only real solution that met the required criteria of the client was to install the Capital Safety Unirail product. This system was installed directly onto the vertical wall. Although in direct pull, due to the multiple anchor points the loads are engineered to be spread and therefore allow the system to be installed in this way. The Capital Safety Unirail product is designed to be installed in different orientations. Allowing for a greater range of installation situations. The system can either be installed for fall protection and or Abseil Use. Along with the installation of the rail system, supporting Anchor points were installed into the structural steelwork and diversion anchors were installed on the building corners. Capital Safety Spirotech anchor were used for this application.
