SAFETY, ACCESS, PLANT & TOOLS New ranges also available from Screwfix.com RCIMAG.COM MAY 2014 085 Zink Copper Stainless M.R. Site Services has provided a total of 42 Quantum access hatches, bespoke manufactured in aluminium, to the recent re-development of Edinburgh’s two main stations. Work taking place at Waverley station specified 30 525mm square access hatches, which were made and delivered in just two weeks. At Haymarket station, another bespoke design called for 12 access hatches with extending handrails when the hatches are opened. Thameslink station in London also has nine, one metre square access hatches installed complete with inner and outer soakers. M.R. Site Services’ bespoke manufacturing has also been used for London’s Paddington station and Derby railway station, in these instances to provide special versions of its Quantum aluminium walkway systems. At Derby, 70 metres of 600mm wide walkway has been supplied and installed, and at Paddington, 110 metres of the same width walkway has been supplied and fitted to provide access to the roof mounted solar PV system. Quantum access hatches are designed for all types of flat roof, particularly aluminium and steel standing seam roofs. The hatches can come complete with standard soakers so that weathering can be achieved without additional flashing, and as the weight of the hatch is transferred through the soaker to the building construction, it does not interfere with the thermal movement of the roof. The lightweight aluminium Quantum walkway system from M.R. Site Services is a competitively priced, low profile system providing roof access for maintenance purposes for any standing seam roof. It is designed for fast installation with a non-penetrative fixing system, eliminating roof leaks. It is also self-aligning which reduces on-site installation time. www.mrsiteservices.co.uk Full steam ahead The latest Screwfix catalogue has been released, and is available for tradesmen and DIYers to pick up from one of the 335 Screwfix stores nationwide.
