We’re delighted to hear that we are finalists in the 2015 UK Rail Industry Awards. We entered our In-Line Access Hatch into the ‘Outstanding Projects Small: Under £3m’ category and are really thrilled to be shortlisted.
The Twinfix Access Hatch was designed by our Technical Director, Dan Smith, to fit within our Multi-Link-Panel modular rooflights and was developed at the request of Network Rail who specify these panels for refurbishment at many of their station canopies. In their bid for safer working conditions they wanted to undertake maintenance without the necessity of staff working from above the roof glazing. The Access Hatch enables gutter cleaning and other tasks to be carried out safely from below, standing on scaffolding. Both the Access Hatch and the Multi-Link-Panels conform to the HSE’s recommended drop test for non-fragility, ACR[M]001:2014,having been fully assessed on the Twinfix in-house test rig.
We’re looking forward to attending the Awards ceremony on 19 February at the Battersea Evolution in London and just hope that we have a really good reason to celebrate on the night!
