Designed for creating a level surface for mounting plant and equipment including heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR) units on steep pitched and saw-toothed roofs.

Description

Structural aluminium platform for steep pitched roofs or where elevation is required.

Features and benefits:

  • Extra height helps to increase air flow, therefore improving the performance and longevity of roof equipment. The added height also allows for easier integration of equipment with vertical discharge ducts.
  • Provides greater access under the platform for routine inspections and maintenance.
  • Distributes the load evenly, reducing the structural requirements of the roof.
  • Configurable to suit project requirements.
  • Lightweight aluminium design ensures ease of carrying, craning, and assembly.
  • Will not corrode.
  • Penetration-free, making placement and position on the roof flexible to suit project requirements.
  • Allows sufficient area around the units for access and maintenance.
  • Supplied in kit form for easy installation.
  • Compliant with BS EN 516: 2006 and BS EN 1090-3: 2008.
