Peri premiere’s PROKIT EP 110 at INTERMAT 2012
Peri launches new quickly mounted protection for open slab edges on building shells
PERI unveiled its new safety system for building shells at INTERMAT 2012.
The PROKIT EP 110 is 1.10m high, quickly mounted temporary protection for open slab edges on building shells. The innovative product prevents site personnel or objects and materials falling off edges, stairs and other areas up to inclination angles of 10%.
Fully compliant with EN 13374 Class A, the PROKIT EP 110 has minimised system parts to ensure swift and easy application: a 2.6m long mesh barrier, one post and assembly feet for slabs or walls. Through the overlapping variations of the mesh barrier, every edge length can be secured while a 1.3m long side mesh barrier is also available for length compensations. Peri says the small number of system components not only simplifies the assembly process, but also material needs and logistics.
Depending on site specifics, mounting takes place on the slab, laterally on the slab or wall, or on the stair stringer.
If no mounting parts are permitted in the slab and drilling is not allowed, the PROKIT Uniclamp PUC can be used. The clamp is attached by means of a jack nut to the slab or parapet. Subsequently, the self-securing posts are inserted and supplemented by the protective barrier.
A distinctive yellow or red coloured powder coating on the side mesh barrier is said by Peri to guarantee a long service life for the PROKIT EP 110. It also makes the safety barriers more visible from distance, advertising the danger area.
