1 | Design for all stages of the building lifecycle
Our galvanised steel framework and GRP grating covers offer the perfect combination of strength, safety and adaptability on site. Unlike competitor solutions, there is no need to cut service holes ahead of time or to crane heavy steel framework into position and the system is infinitely adjustable to allow for millimetre by millimetre changes.
All components of the Dura Riser system are also suited to manual handling and can be adapted for use with unusual substrates such as hollow or clay pot. It is ideally suited to modular construction and enables safety requirements to be more easily met and policed. Not only is there a reduced risk of trips, slips and falls – particularly as work at height is reduced – but there is also a reduction in onsite activity.
2 | Reduce the risk wherever possible
Whilst no standard exists specifically for riser void protection, our Dura Riser system is designed to comply with the rigorous standards set out in BS 4592-0:2006 + A1:2012.
Service cut outs can be made “just in time” to minimise the risk for on-site personnel, and our mini mesh gratings complies with the European Ball Falling test requirements.
Dura Riser Grating features our best ever gritted surface which is tested to over 1 million footfalls (in accordance with BS 7976-2:2002+A1:2013) and outperforms all other products in the market when it comes to durability and anti-slip properties.
3 | Keep it simple
Our standard Dura Riser steel framework comprises of four innovative patent pending components that can be used in a wide range of scenarios for risers with a span of up to 3 metres. We offer both a supply-only and a fully installed solution.
Where service penetrations are required, additional supports may be needed, and our experienced team can also create and install bespoke solutions for complex riser voids. No hot works permits are required for cutting service holes on site, thanks to the non-conductive and non-sparking properties of the Dura Riser grating.
4 | Safer at the point of need – for less money
Dura’s Riser solutions are a safer option than corrugated plastic, plywood and netting and prove more cost effective in the long run as they offer much needed flexibility to construction teams.
There’s no need to remove and replace heavy cover plates, and no significant contribution to construction waste. Using Dura Riser 41mm Solid Top grating eliminates the need for additional coverings such a corrugated plastic, netting or plywood, saving even more cost.
