Easi-Dec, the working at height safety specialist, has supplied Everest with 72 Roofline systems to provide installation teams with what it says is a ‘safe, efficient and cost effective solution for accessing roofline level when carrying out gutter, soffit and fascia replacements’.
Having approached Easi-Dec about its Roofline system, the Everest health and safety and purchasing departments received numerous product demonstrations with the Easi-Dec team visiting Everest branches and existing projects to highlight how its system can accommodate different types of properties. Reportedly impressed by the safe, easy to use and cost-effective system, Everest placed an order for 72 Easi-Dec Roofline platforms.
The Easi-Dec system allowed trained operatives to erect the access equipment on the day of the installation and remove it upon completion, which caused less disruption to customers. The system removes the need to appoint external scaffold companies on some installations. Its individual platforms can also be used on window replacement contracts which offer further flexibility with the equipment.
Andy Hunter, health & safety executive at Everest, said: “The Easi-Dec Roofline system is well known within our industry and it not only offers a cost effective solution, but it also does not compromise on safety.
“We purchased a significant amount of Easi-Dec equipment and as a result, we worked closely with the company to deliver 72 training sessions around the UK in a very short space of time. The service was excellent and the delivery of the equipment and training ran without any issues. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with all of the team at Easi-Dec and I could not recommend them highly enough.”
Easi-Dec Roofline is a modular system, incorporating one or more Easi-Dec platforms linked securely with Easi-Dec Catwalk to form a continuous fully-guarded platform. It has been designed to provide simple, rapid access to roofline level by eliminating the time constraints of erecting scaffolding and can reportedly be set up in less than 30 minutes. The 8m Roofline system comprises two Easi-Dec platforms and a catwalk. It features telescopic legs that provide height adjustment in 30mm increments and can even cope with sloping ground. With a comprehensive range of accessories, Easi-Dec Roofline is said to offer numerous benefits and is reportedly able to ‘overcome a wide variety of challenging access situations’.
The Roofline system is available with a standard leg height of 3.3m -5.5m, with alternative leg lengths also available, enabling workers to cover the majority of properties, ranging from 2.34m (typical bungalow) up to 6.8m (two storey town house).
