KOMBI access stairs and platforms can be pre-assembled and installed in remote locations by on-site personnel using standard hand tools. Modifications due to uneven ground can be made using the patented KOMBI T-Bolt.
Providing stairs and platforms for access to solar farms and renewable energy plants and buildings in remote locations
No matter the location, whether inner CBD or in the most remote country area, it is still necessary to provide safe access to buildings and equipment for day to day use or for the purpose of performing maintenance.
A key factor in the provision of access is ensuring that the products you install are structurally sound, industry compliant and durable.
The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 states: "A person conducting a business or undertaking must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that the health and safety of other persons is not put at risk from work carried out as part of the conduct of the business or undertaking."
Particularly in remote areas, transportation and installation costs may cause budgetary blowouts in what should be a simple project, so finding a product that can be easily delivered and assembled is key.
In the case of solar farms or other forms of renewable energy plants such as wind or hydro plants, many are located in regional areas, nevertheless your Duty of Care to your workers must still remain a determining factor in the type of access equipment you choose.
Most often the requirement for solar and renewable energy plants is stair and platform systems to access either equipment or buildings. However, when trying to install a suitable product in remote areas a variety of common problems are encountered.
Solar farms, due to the very nature of their performance, are primarily situated in harsh regions which see extremes of heat and sun. These types of environments require systems that do not degrade or succumb to structural damage over the long term.
Additionally, solar and renewable energy plants need systems that can be easily constructed on-site which is most often situated a long away from any large towns. Finding trades willing to carry out installations can be a difficult and expensive task.
Adding to the complexities is the the issue of scoping and designing systems when locations are remote. How can you be sure the measurements are completely accurate? What happens if a system is fabricated but when it gets to site it doesn't fit?
KOMBI access stairs and platforms are constructed from structural aluminium. A strong, lightweight, highly robust material, aluminum can withstand years of harsh exposure in the exact type of areas that solar farms and renewable energy plants are erected.
They are also fully engineered and designed in accordance with Australian and New Zealand Standards AS 1657 and AS/NZS 1170.
Fabrication of the stair and platform systems is done in our manufacturing facility but once your KOMBI access system arrives at site if there are miscalculations in measurements or variations in ground level, KOMBI stairs and platforms can be easily modified in situ without requiring expensive redesign. As they are a modular design, KOMBI stairs and platforms can be delivered in kit form which can provide huge savings in transportation costs.
But what about assembly?
Can your team put a flat pack together? If the answer is yes, then KOMBI stairs and platforms are for you. It is 100% modular so no welding on on-site fabrication is necessary. There is no requirement for specialised trades or tools, just basic power tools and a bit of DIY ingenuity.
The secret of KOMBI is the patented KOMBI T-Bolt. This allows on-site customisation.
