KOMBI Stair and Crossover Systems
Godfrey Hirst is the largest manufacturer and exporter of residential and commercial carpets in Australasia. First and foremost they required a system that was flexible, enabling minor on-site changes without the need for hot works and fabrication.
The plant consists of a complex conveyor belt system over which access was required. With space at a minimum, the designed systems had to allow worker access, and were to be installed within extremely constricted areas.
An additional challenge was the need for the systems to be adapted to enable seamless integration between the client’s existing platforms and walls.
Many design drawings for multiple configurations were completed to ensure that the systems being installed met the client’s requirements and would offer a high level of ease of use for the operators.
KOMBI’s modular design enabled easy delivery and assembly within tight and constricted areas. The versatility of KOMBI systems was of great benefit, enabling modifications to be carried out on-site, without the necessity for pre-measuring or welded fabrication.
Areas that were virtually inaccessible can now be easily accessed by personnel, improving time efficiencies and increasing worker safety.
