EllisDon was building a new data centre building and they needed to provide fall protection and safe access to the roof.

The Challenge

Our esteemed client, a global construction leader, was faced with a significant challenge. They were constructing a new data center building, and ensuring worker safety during construction, especially for those needing rooftop access, was of utmost importance. This access was crucial for various tasks throughout the construction process and would be required for ongoing maintenance after completion.

The Solution

Through a strong partnership with our client, Kee Safety designed a comprehensive fall protection and access solution for the data center's rooftop. Our Kee Step system, a testament to our collaborative efforts, provided the versatility needed for this project.

  • Kee Step Rooftop Crossovers: As construction progressed, different areas of the roof required access. We strategically placed Kee Step Rooftop Crossovers throughout the roof space to address this dynamic need. These prefabricated platforms allowed workers to safely step over pipes, ducts, and other rooftop obstacles, ensuring uninterrupted and secure access to all areas.
