Our bespoke first-class safety, riser solutions on new builds or refurbishments together with our highly experienced team offer a tried and tested one-stop-shop for Riser safety – including design, material supply & install.
Riser voids (the openings which are left to accommodate mechanical and electrical services on multiple floors of a building) can provide real safety challenges for contractors. In the UK, the most common kind of fatal accident to workers continues to be falls from a height, being struck by a moving vehicle and being struck by a moving object, between them accounting for over half of all fatal accidents to workers in 2020/21. Data source RIDDOR (Health and Safety Executive).
Something as innocuous as a tape measure dropped from height in a riser shaft can tragically kill, and statistics show that a 500g object dropped from 15m has the same impact energy as a 75kg washing machine. Dura Composites offers a comprehensive Riser supply and install service utilising our purpose-designed Dura Riser GRP Grating products and galvanised steel framework to help reduce the risk of death or serious injury on construction sites.
Our Dura Riser solutions can eliminate the need for scaffold handrails, netting or timber shuttering and can be ‘Post-fixed’ or ‘Cast-in’ to concrete as a fully structural solution. From our d2 product range we offer Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) grating that meets the requirements of the 20mm Ball Falling Test, as well as versions with a completely solid surface for maximum debris defence.
