Bridging the gap for lift maintenance with KOMBI aluminium stairs, platforms and walkways
Victoria Police Centre, Melbourne VIC
Schindler Lifts Australia
KOMBI Modular Access Platforms
A recently completed 40-storey tower in Melbourne's busy CBD, the new headquarters for Victoria Police, required access to a number of lift machines.
Within the area space was very tight and access to machinery at various heights meant specifically designed configurations were required.
The system was not able to be either craned or located into position with the use of heavy lifting equipment so lightweight components that could be manually carried in via the lift system needed to be sourced.
SAYFA worked closely with Schindler Lifts to design custom access platforms to fit around each lift machine stand.
The designs were quite complex due to the variation in available space. Multiple configurations were required that would fit in with the machinery which was situated at variable heights.
One of the machine rooms was particularly challenging. A mezzanine had been fitted to each side of the room but access was only possible via one side. The design of a bridge which could span across from one side now gives workers access to all machinery.
SAYFA provided detailed shop drawings to Schindler, drafting them in the KOMBI Builda. This enabled a quick custom design that could be visualised easily by the client and provided parts lists and kit codes ensuring that our fabrication team could commence manufacture immediately.
All KOMBI components were carried up to the machine rooms via lifts and then assembled in situ. Installation could be done using basic power tools with any last minute modifications made utilising the patented KOMBI T-Bolt. This innovative fixing bolt, designed specifically for the KOMBI modular systems, can allow each individual tread to be leveled and spaced to ensure a perfect fit.
We now have two extremely satisfied customers who couldn't believe the ease at which the whole project was completed.
Why KOMBI stairs and platform systems?
Our patented KOMBI T-Bolt means that the systems can be adjusted on-site to cater for any miscalculations or unknown variables that may eventuate. Budgetary blowouts in both time and money can easily occur should modifications be required to traditional systems once they have been produced. In fact, it can quite often mean a complete system re-design, causing the whole project to be delayed.
Additionally, KOMBI aluminium modular stair and platforms are designed with the installer in mind.
