Plant Platforms Designed, Installed, and Certified

Plant Platforms provide safe and compliant access to machinery and elevated equipment to enhance the process of inspection, cleaning, and maintenance. Platforms are carefully designed to provide stability and grip allowing workers to carry out repairs and maintenance in confidence.

Plant platforms are commonly used in rooftop height safety systems for areas that require regular and ongoing maintenance such as HVAC systems or cooling towers. This allows for safe access for employees and reduces the weight loads on the roof, allowing heavy machinery or equipment to be housed without causing any damage to the surface of the roof.

We understand that not all sites are the same, and that’s where our custom-made plant platforms come in – designed to suit the specific needs of your site and built to withstand the heavy loads associated with plant machinery. 

All our platforms are compliant with recommended Australian standards including AS 1657:2018. They are ideal for any construction site or building, adding value to the property and ensuring the health and safety of its workers.

Gantry Walkways

Our modular gantry walkways (or access platforms) have many features that enable them to perform in a wide range of environments. Their lightweight aluminium construction is strong, low maintenance, and non-corrosive making it suitable for internal or external use. 

Cold environments, such as food processing plants often require access platforms to allow access chillers, etc. These platforms are treated with an anti-slip coating, further reducing the risk of injury.

Features include:

  • Ease of access 
  • Modular design with replaceable components  
  • Platform size and height are adjustable to suit specific site requirements 
  • Stairways are adjustable to suit the final platform height 
  • Suited to free-standing construction where required 
  • Designed to meet AS1657:2018 requirements

Cooling Tower Platforms

If you have a cooling tower or HVAC system on your site, you know maintenance is something you need to stay on top of with monthly inspections, rigorous testing, and cleaning regimes. Every state in Australia has legislation relating to cooling tower maintenance that building owners and facility managers must comply with.

Australian Legislation requires cooling towers to be inspected every month, cleaned every six months, and certified annually. The more frequent the access, the more frequent the risk. 

That’s why we recommend installing permanent rooftop access systems including walkways, guardrails, and platforms for cooling tower maintenance. Cost-effective and easy to maintain, these in-built systems provide the highest level of fall prevention for people working on rooftop cooling towers. 

Anchor Safes plant platforms have proven to boost confidence levels for workers inspecting, maintaining & cleaning cooling towers. Providing a safe working environment is critical, especially at heights.

Cooling Tower Platform Features include:

  • Facilitates on-site construction allowing site-specific design flexibility and attachment to the structure
  • Manufactured from industrial-grade lightweight aluminium 
  • High strength bracing system allows platforms to be free-standing up to 6.0m 
  • Designed to meet AS1657:2018 requirements
  • Platform size and height are adjustable to suit specific site requirements

Suspended platforms and walkways

Anchor Safe’s suspended platforms provide safe and convenient access in ceiling spaces or above heavy machinery or plant equipment for maintenance. All platforms and supports are adjustable allowing on-site customisation where required with supports at approx. 2.0m intervals depending on required loads and spans. Platforms are designed in accordance with the Australian standards AS1657:2018

Features include:

    • Lightweight for less load on the structure
    • No crane required for installation
    • Fits into tight spaces
    • No welding/hot works on-site
    • Cost-effective compared to steel
