Designed, Engineered & Installed

Accessing a hydrogen peroxide tank for filling and maintenance is no easy task, but adding in the factor that the structure is 8 feet in the ground makes it almost impossible.

Our team of engineers, estimators, designers and project managers were recently asked to design, engineer and install a bar grating platform around a hydrogen peroxide tank so workers could easily access the tank hatch. The platform had to be sturdy enough to support the weight of multiple workers and also had to meet OSHA requirements for safety and fall protection.

From Concept to Completion

The customer asked Strut Systems Installation to design, engineer, and install a bar grating equipment platform around a hydrogen peroxide tank so workers could safely and easily access the tank hatch for filling and maintenance. Our team went to work by taking measurements of the space that needed to be covered, measurements of the distance from the tank to the railing and measurements of the space needed to easily open and close the tank hatch.

By using Unistrut for the structural supports and aluminum bar grating for the platform, our team was able to come up with a solution that met both the customer needs and OSHA’s requirements.

After the design was approved, our team went to working installing the new bar grating platform which was completely finished in just under 1- 1/2 days. The platform met every requirement and the customer was so pleased with the job that they placed 3 more orders for custom platforms to be installed in other locations in their plant.
