Typical Barricade Issues
Current, non-engineered and site-built barricade systems increase risk exposure and liability for potential injuries, fatalities and OSHA violations
Barricades can be easily moved and are not secured, creating increased risks and the need for daily inspections
Damage and maintenance issues during construction create increased risks
GC and elevator contractor disputes over installation, maintenance and removal of barricade systems
Barricades and screening are disposed of upon completion adding to the waste of the project
Poor site aesthetics
The most widely utilized safety barricade for your typical hoistway entrances. The access barricade provides 8' high and 6' wide coverage at the slab edge with a 49" wide, lockable door. A secondary safety gate at the shaft edge ensures workers have safe access to their tie-off line in the hoist way.
This double door barricade is utilized at the bottom and occasionally top entrances of the elevator hoistway. Designed to meet the installation requirements of elevator installers. The loading barricade provides 8' high and 8'-10" wide coverage at the slab edge with a 7' wide, lockable double door for ease of material loading and construction activities. A secondary safety gate at the shaft edge ensures workers have safe access to their tie-off line in the hoist way.
The 8' tall and 2' wide filler panel is utilized when additional shaft coverage is needed. These panels are frequently utilized on freight applications and multi-car shaft wall applications where vertical support between cars is not present.
