Job 1179 - Replace fence blown over by fascia (See Job 1160)
Industrial Abseiling work on and off-rope to aide our clients construction, repair and maintenance requirements. This job, a by product of a roof repair (see Job 1160), was caused when 70-lm of Fascia blew off a 13-level apartment complex and knocked over a paling fence. CGU Insurance gave Industrial Abseiling the green light and we ordered a new aluminium fence, removed the debri and installed the new one.
There was an installation hiccup - originally a besser block wall was laid on top of a concrete foundation with a capping brick. The besser blocks were not reinforced nor core-filled. In order to remedy, Industrial Abseiling removed the capping, chem-set reinforcing and poured new concrete to erect the fence upon. The fence and the workmanship are top-notched. The chippies, painters, concreters and I worked hard in and out of the rain to knock it over in about 35-man hours.

Job 1043 - Repair Expansion Joints and Supply and Fit Stainless Steel Capping
The photographic diary for Job 1043 shows Industrial Abseilings expansion joint work for this application and the additional waterproofing provided by Industrial Abseiling in the form of stainless steel capping.
The project involved hauling the sheeting after our welders cut and bent the 316 stainless for fitting. Tradespeople on rope used fixings on one side of the capping only to allow for building expansion and contraction. Stainless Steel screws were used into masonry plugs as the task was none structural and through a risk assessment fixings of this nature deemed sufficiet for the task.
The capping looks great and can be seen driving along the Motorway into the CBD.
