FRP Staircare SC-R Project

SC-R Non-Conductive Fence, Gates, Crossovers and Platforms

Situation:  Rio Tinto – Boyne Smelters, Gladstone New Bus-Bar Installation

The Task:  Design and supply a complete non-conductive pre-assembled fencing system including engineering sign off.  The non-conductive fence was made up of 4 major areas that all link together including FRP access gates, 3 x large FRP crossovers and platforms.  The fencing panels and fixing into concrete floors required SC-R threaded FRP rods, nuts and custom made washers.  Items shipped pre-assembled for easy on-site installation including installation instructions

Certification:  Staircare Non-Conductive fencing, crossovers.

  • AS 1657-2018 Fixed Platforms, walkways, stairways and ladders- Design Construction and installation.
  • AS 1170 & 1170.1 – 2002 Structural Design Actions.
  • AS 1170.2 Wind Load

Result:  The complete design, manufacture and supply process took 8 months from concept to completion.  The $427,000.00 project was very successfully completed with time to spare.
