New GRP ladder platform banner

With emergency tank showers measuring in at over 3 metres high, inspecting the water tanks is a tall order and raises issues concerning the safety of employees working at height.

Organising checks or maintenance requires hiring scaffolding which can be costly and time-consuming if an urgent inspection was necessary.

What’s the solution?

GRP ladder platform attached to a tank showerIntroducing Hughes’ latest development: a GRP ladder platform for emergency tank showers, designed to enable easy and safe access to the tank.

These platforms can be attached to all new tank shower orders or retrofitted to your current Hughes tank showers with the option to mount at the left, right or rear of the shower, depending on your requirements.

At 1215mm high, the railing on the Hughes platform exceeds the HSE recommended 950mm  for working platforms as well as the 1100mm stipulated in Building Regulations for guard rails.

  • Manufactured in hi-visibility yellow GRP
