Enhance plant safety by including a guardrail in your cover design.
GTI’s structurally supported covers are a proven way to control odors and algae while still providing easy access for inspection and maintenance. However, any open cover can present potential Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) risks that need to be addressed.
Treatment plant staff and engineering advisors often inquire about ways to combine the easy access of a retractable cover with the increased safety that comes with a guardrail system. GTI has developed a patented guardrail in response to these requests.
GTI’s clear-span guardrail aligns with the end of GTI’s retractable covers and, for most covers, spans the tank width with no vertical posts. This means the cover can be easily rolled open and closed without interference from guardrail posts. The GTI guardrail is custom-designed to withstand code loads, just like standard guardrails.
