Surrey based Landmark Construction Services recently adopted the Easi-Safe system from FP McCann on a drainage scheme. The development in Hailsham East Sussex has seen a number of DN 1200 Easi-Base manhole units installed by Landmark with each cover slab having the fall arrest system fitted on a temporary basis protecting openings prior to finishing surfacing works and permanent manhole ironwork covers being placed.
Easi-Safe, FP McCann’s award-winning system is a temporary or permanent fall arrest galvanised steel grid that allows for safe working around the manhole opening prior to the final fitting of the ironwork cover.
The Easi-Safe grid is seated on load-bearing corners precast into a standard range of manhole cover slabs. As a temporary fall arrest system, once the construction of the manhole is complete, the grid can be removed prior to the fitting of the ironwork. Alternatively, Easi-Safe can be a permanent fixture, left in place beneath the manhole lid. The spacing between the bars allows for ease of inspection and jetting of the manhole base during maintenance work.
