Job 1150 - Installation of crane lifted awning systems
Industrial Abseiling were contracted by one of Australia's larger builders to install crane lifted awnings on the external elevations of a building
1-week from expected final completion two industrial abseiling trades people with tethered equipment descended to the first floor exterior window system and then ascended to the next after the crane lifted awning was fitted. For fitting, Industrial Abseiling drilled holes, hammered in expansion bolts, and aligned the new awning whilst communicating with the crane and then fixed with 19mm sockets on long arm g-force handles. The client, a repeat client, spoke about additional work in the coming weeks. we this this sort of work; great fun!
Job 1083 - Expansion Joints needing replacement
After 25-years expansion joints need attention! One city council asked Industrial Abseilings team to conduct repairs to the expansion joints throughout their complex. The expansion joint seal has been removed and repalced with new beading, foam and sealant. In this instance we used Bostiks flex 1 range, a product recommended for this purpose with +/- 50% expansion.
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.
