Equinox Installs Fall Protection at Inverness Castle
Equinox Access were awarded the contract of design and installation of various fall protection systems throughout the Scottish court network. A team from our Fall Protection division were mobilised to inverness castle to install 12 horizontal life lines and 15 Class A1 independent eyebolts.
Access to the working areas was achieved using a team of IRATA trained rope access technicians using industrial rope access methods and techniques. The project was carried out safely and within the estimated time scale.
Inverness Castle sits on a cliff overlooking the River Ness, in Inverness, Scotland. The red sand stone structure evident today was built in 1836. It is built on the site of an 11th century defensive structure. Today, it houses Inverness Sheriff Court. There has been a castle at this site for many centuries. The castle itself is not open to the public but the grounds are.
The fall protection systems installed consisted of KEELINE horizontal life line systems and RINGANKA eyebolts ( a part of the Kee Safety KEE IBOLT range - Class A1 safety anchors). The requirement was for 70m of KEELINE spread over 12 separate systems and 15 number RINGANKA safety eyebolts.
