Safesite provided Roehampton Sports and Fitness Centre with a collective roof edge protection system that ensures optimum roof top safety for maintenance and inspection teams.
Roehampton Sports and Fitness Centre is managed by Places for People Leisure on behalf of Wandsworth Council. The building previously had no roof safety measures in place, with maintenance teams having to assess the flat roof via portable ladders to carry out inspection work. It therefore became necessary for the building to have a safety upgrade comprising a complete roof protection system that enables safe access.
Safesite had previously worked on another leisure centre within the borough, so Wandsworth Council contacted the company to ask it to carry out a site evaluation, provide a full design package, and install the specified system. Safesite recommended the installation of Kee Walk®, KeeGuard®, KeeGuard® Topfix, Weightanka®, and an access ladder. The combination of these products has provided the very best roof top safety solution.
Luke Plaska, Chartered Building Surveyor at Wandsworth Borough Council, said, "We are extremely satisfied with the end result. The safety solutions installed by Safesite provide the perfect safe access solution and are a vast improvement to the previous existing unsafe access methods."
