P.E.T Safety Decking is fall prevention at its best. Safer and more effective than traditional products that protect a person who’s already falling, this system is made from reinforced plastic to create a solid working platform with a non-slip surface. Quicker (and easier) to put up and take down than, for example, bird cage scaffold, the platform can be installed by 1 person who can cover 60m2 in about an hour. Made out of just three component parts, our fully compliant safety decking is versatile and can be adapted to suit individual projects.
The following tests were carried out on May 31st 2005 on the new design of the lightweight working access and safety platform (see also report August 24th 2004 for tests already passed). All tests carried on May 31st 2005 were passed for the new header\foot\Retainer.
