The Superbeam catwalk system allows large loading capacities to be hung off the truss whilst allowing personnel to walk safely through the truss without the need for fall arrest systems. Free access between the truss sections is achieved by the use of special ribs enabling the top side of the truss to remain open. The floor of the walkway is split into hingable sections allowing access to the underside for focusing purposes. The catwalk system is fully compliant to current EU norms with full-height handrails, kickboards and knee level safety bars. ‘Door frame’ pickup beams allow for complete uninhibited access along the catwalk and the system is totally modular with pin jointed fittings for maximum strength and speed of construction.
- All loads are given in Kilograms
- Allowance has been made for self-weight of truss
- Allowance has been made for frequent use factor of 83%
- The payload of the truss has been calculated as a permanent action. Should it be necessary to consider the payload as a variable action, the tabulated figures should be reduced to 90% of the given values.
