Type BA to secure a pedestal support post for a fall protection wire system
Type BA BeamClamp products were used to secure the base plate of a pedestal post that was used to support a fall protection wire system to the top of a fragile roof. The fragile roof on this large distribution centre required a walkway to provide safe access/maintenance to the roof area. The walkway required a fall protection wire system to run along side the walkway to protect users. The roof material was opened up so that the pedestal post could come up through the roof and then connect to a bracket to support the wire. The base plate of the pedestal was secured to the supporting steelwork using our BA Clamps as shown in the pictures. This eliminated the need to drill or weld to the existing steel and also allowed for the painted surface to remain in place ensuring the corrosion protection was maintained. It also allowed fine adjustment to get the pedestal into the correct position along the beam length and no requirement for specialist equipment to be taken above head height.
