Product Options

Kalform Grillage Walkway and Handrail System:

- Walkway grillage:

The walkway grillage is supplied in modular lengths to suit the cover width of the Kalzip sheet and consists of 25 mm deep non-slip load bearing extruded aluminium bars joined using the unique swage lock method of construction. The bars in a nominal 30 x 100 mm mesh pattern spanning transversely across the width of the walkway are set into 65 mm deep side ‘Z’ section members. The walkway grillage is available in 600 mm and 900 mm wide panels with other widths available if needed or tapered if necessary. Lengths of the walkway grillage can be easily cut to suit, on or off site, if size adjustment is required without any detriment to the walkway construction.

- Handrail system:

The handrail systems consist of a 38 mm diameter extruded aluminium circular hollow section top rail positioned at 1100 mm from the walkway grillage surface and a 32 mm diameter extruded aluminium circular hollow section mid rail positioned at 0.6 m above the walkway grillage surface. The handrails are supported by 50 mm extruded aluminium circular hollow section posts fixed to extruded aluminium side palm bases which are in turn fixed to the side section members. The handrail posts are positioned at centres to match the cover length of the walkway grillage (maximum 2.133 m to suit Kalzip 305).

The walkway can be installed with handrails to both sides, handrail one side or without handrails. It can be installed without handrails alongside the Kalzip fall arrest system where fall arrest capability is needed.

- Roof pitch:

The grillage and handrail system can be installed in plane to the roof at pitches up to 10°. Where a flat and level surface is required special clip extension pieces are utilised to counter the roof pitch. The grillage and handrail system can also be manufactured to accommodate pitches above 10° degrees in the form of stepped units.

- Connection to Kalzip:

The walkway grillage is fitted to the seams of the Kalzip sheets using extruded aluminium seam clips when running transverse to the Kalzip seams. The seam clips are positioned at up to 1.525 m centres for Kalzip 305 and up to 1.6 m centres for Kalzip 400. When running parallel to the Kalzip seams, the walkway grillage is fixed to extruded aluminium channel bearers positioned at a maximum 1.6 m centres, which are in turn fixed to the Kalzip seams utilizing the extruded aluminium seam clips.

Design:

Curved walkways and stepped units are available, consult manufacturer for information.
