New AJAX Safe Access Technical Brochure

 

This month, AJAX Safe Access has launched their brand new Safe Access Technical Brochure. Hosted on our website, the brochure can be viewed in our turn page software or downloaded to your device to use on the move.

The new brochure features the latest innovations in safe access systems within a variety of industries providing safer working environments to eliminate falls from height.

The standard AJAX Safe Access range consists of fall prevention measures that assist operatives in their daily working environments.

Mezzanine floors with various heights can benefit from the AJAX roll over pallet gates and heavy duty, swing arm, platform safety gates. These provide the operative with all-round protection when loading and unloading.

Road and rail tankers can benefit from the AJAX tanker access platforms and mobile access platforms, which provide safe working environments at various heights.

AJAX has the knowledge and expertise to provide a solution to your problem, utilising their design and fabrication resources, and meeting your bespoke requirements.

Safe Access for the Port of Dover

Safety is a priority in the marine travel industry and daily maintenance of ferry components is crucial. Recently, AJAX got called up to produce a double platform access unit for the docks in Dover. The platform will be installed underneath the ferry drive-on ramps to maintain the ramp hydraulics of every ferry that comes into port.

 

Surrounded by the daily rigors of a harsh marine environment, the logical choice was to construct the access unit out of aluminium. Along with its corrosive resistant properties, the aluminium construction reduces the overall weight of the unit significantly whilst maintaining a substantial amount of structural strength. As the double platforms of the access unit are to be operated manually by the maintenance team, the reduced weight allows each platform to be moved with ease without the need of pneumatics that, in the harsh conditions, could cause maintenance issues.

 

The secret of the success of the access unit is the custom-made wheels that assist the platform sliders, these were fabricated with stainless steel bearings and polyurethane wheels. Together, these two components create a wheel ideally suited to the harsh environment; specifically designed to resist corrosion. To complete the construction of the access unit, the moving platforms and the stationary base have glass reinforced plastic (GRP) floor gratings; these provide the operator with a solid, impact resistant surface from which to carry out all maintenance procedures.

AJAX Safe Access has now produced many manual and pneumatic moving platforms with all-round protection providing bespoke safe access solutions for specific situations.

Platform to Greener Energy

The AJAX Safe Access team has been busy this month manufacturing four bespoke pneumatic linear moving drop platforms for a company that will use them in a recycling area that is part of their new Greener Energy Policy.

The new pneumatic safety platforms will be positioned in-line with their ‘Discharge Booth’, where large screw feeds operate taking disposed recycled waste away. The platforms will provide the operator with a safe working zone over the screw feeds, allowing access the rear doors of vehicles parked in the ‘Discharge Booth’.

When a vehicle is stationary in the ‘Discharge Booth’ an air-curtain seals the rear of the vehicle preventing dust exposure to surrounding workers. The ‘Discharge Booth’ doors can then be opened, allowing the pneumatic platform to be extracted into the booth area and dropped down with assisted gas struts allowing safe access to the rear of the vehicle. Once the vehicle doors are open, the platform is retracted and the booth doors shut. The disposal of the recycled waste from the vehicle is assisted by a conveyor belt. Whilst the recycled waste is being emptied into the screw feeds, the ‘Discharge Booth’ remains sealed, protecting surrounding workers from dust and debris. On completion of the task, the pneumatic platform can be used to inspect the vehicle and close its doors.

As part of the company’s Greener Energy Policy, the recycled waste will be used to help fuel their current operations and reduce their use of non-renewable energy sources.

Mobile Steps go Viral

The AJAX Team has been busy producing its safe access products for many clients this month, in particular the AJAX Mobile Steps. The Mobile Unit is lightweight and designed for tanker loading areas where floor space is restricted.

To help demonstrate the operation and capability of the AJAX Mobile Step Unit we have produced a simple video of it in action.

Chained Up for Improved Safety Standards

The AJAX design team has recently developed the safety cage of our Righthite Access Steps by fabricating an optional chain mail skirt to the lower sections.  The development is to keep ahead of changes to health and safety standards and ensures users of the Access Steps are as safe as possible.

 

Should a user slip or trip when working on a high level working platform, the chain mail skirt, fitted as an optional extra to the lower edge of the AJAX safety cage, provides an additional level of safety to prevent the user falling to the ground.

This bespoke model of AJAX Righthite Access Step and Safety Cage is already being successfully used by BASF, Bradford; the world’s leading chemical company.

Counter Balance Raises the Bar for AJAX Safe Access

The AJAX Safe Access team has just completed the installation of this bespoke eight metre long loading gantry to provide the ultimate in safe access for the workforce. The gantry spans the full length of a tanker vehicle and has a series of hinged trap doors allowing access along the length of a stationary tanker.

As there was no electrical, pneumatic or hydraulic power available on site the AJAX design team developed a new, unique counter balance system to raise and lower the gantry.

 

The engineering within the counter balance allows the platform to be suspended by a cable and pulley system with the counter balance weight being precisely calculated to hoist the platform to its upper starting position and then lowering onto the tanker when an operator applies their own weight.

To complete this project, the AJAX team also manufactured and installed two six metre road barriers with an interlocking system: Fitted to both barriers and the gantry, the interlocking system means it is impossible for a tanker to drive off unless the platform is safely in its raised position.

In our many years of experience, tanker drive-off is the most common cause of damage to loading equipment and, potentially, the operators. The client is extremely pleased with the design of this complete project, its contribution to improve on site safety and its ease of operation.

AJAX Connexions | Original Pallet Gates made Better

The original AJAX Safety Barrier was introduced in 1965; since then it has continually evolved to ensure it continues to accommodate an ever increasing demand for faster operations, larger capacity and improved safety of workers.

Every AJAX barrier provides all-round edge protection designed to prevent injury to pallet truck operatives and other personnel when loading or unloading pallets from various floor height openings.

Today, there are two standard models of AJAX Safety Barrier:
The spring-assisted, over-head AJAX Pallet Gate
The counter-balance, swing arm AJAX Pallet Gate

All standard AJAX Safety Barriers are constructed from mild steel and are supplied with a yellow powder coat finish (BS08E51). Both models come in a range of sizes to handle a single or double pallet width.

As the UK based designer and manufacturer of all AJAX Barriers we can also engineer barriers from stainless steel for use in corrosive or hygienic environments, can powder coat to any RAL colour and can adapt the designs to suit the needs of your operation.
