Accessing cooling towers
Cooling towers are constantly requiring roof access each year – with monthly checks, two monthly cleaning and inspections – but just how do they get up there and at what risk? Workplace Access & Safety can sort it out for you.
Cooling Tower Platforms are the safe and maintenance-free choice for accessing cooling towers, elevated areas and mechanical plant.
They can be designed and independently certified to ensure compliance with Australian Standards, Australia’s National Construction Code (formerly the BCA), WHS legislation and state law.
PROJECT | Westpac banks Cooling Tower access
Safe cooling tower access is essential for Westpac’s facility manager DTZ. The state based regulations mandate ‘easy and safe access to and about the tower and within the tower for maintenance activities such as safe inspection, adjustment and cleaning’.
PROJECT | World Trade Centre – Access To Cooling Tower
The project involved the design and installation of a height safety system for the routine access to cooling towers following a Cooling Tower Access Audit that highlighted inadequacies in the access to serviceable areas of the cooling towers.
