GRP Riser Solution UK​

RiserGuard solution offers several benefits over existing products such a ‘Flowforge’.

  • A flexible & practical solution which takes away the challenges of riser flooring installation that will reduce overall costs
  • Eliminates the need for costly edge protection thus avoiding continuous inspection & surveillance.
  • Reduces the cost of installation of M&E equipment by providing easy lift out panels
  • Reduces the need for return visits to site by other trades
  • Provision of a fully floored out riser void at the outset eliminates the risks of falls
  • Reduces the risk posed during the M&E installation by providing a safe working platform
  • Eliminates the need for hot works and permits on site
  • Lightweight components that are easily handled and installed
  • Innovative use of sustainable GRP structural materials and bracketry that are prefabricated into individually packaged kits.
  • Design incorporates the full M&E layouts using fully supported lightweight lift out panels.
  • CAD drawings that can be incorporated into BIM models
  • Specifically designed solutions to suit a variety of flooring arrangements.
  • High strength to weight ratio
  • Impact resistant
  • Ultra-slip resistant
  • Non-conductive & non-sparking
  • Fire resistant
  • RiserGuard can be installed at any stage during the construction of a building – ‘the earlier the better’.
  • Flexible design combined with lightweight, easily fabricated material allows for straightforward on-site modification
  • Reduced safety requirements for M&E contractors reducing their costs
  • Individual Pre-packaged Kits that are pre-fabricated to suit each riser can be easily transported around the site
  • Lightweight components can be manually handled into position, eliminating the need for heavy lifting equipment
  • Reduces health & safety risks associated with lifting out complete areas and having to reinstall remedial support beams

What is a Riser?

A riser is an open shaft which ‘rises up’ from the ground within a building to allow for passage of mechanical & electrical services.

Riser voids pose one of the biggest threats to safety on any large-scale construction site.

Almost 50% of construction related incidents are due to falls from height.

Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) vs Flowforge

Feature
GRP
Flowforge
