APMG Ltd., a major manufacturer and installer of industrial Fans, Fume Scrubbers and Fume Cupboards secured the contract to supply all the fume extraction equipment for a major new development at the Kings Business Park at Knowsley, Merseyside. They chose Pump House, Flexi Support Systems to design and supply all the rooftop support frameworks for the large amount of extraction equipment required on two roofs.
This development, done over two phases, required over 30 bespoke heavy duty beams to support the main fans and extract units. Each of the 6 metre beams was supported on two Flexi TWIN supports with 2 x 500mm feet and extensive additional cross bracing and strut was used for secondary equipment support and stability. The two large central extraction units were supported by separate custom made frame work and a large number of smaller frames were supplied to mount the smaller secondary units on.
All our hot dip galvanised frameworks were supplied in lengths and widths to accommodate the services being supported and all frameworks were designed to manage the imposed loads of the equipment being supported, to ensure that uniform load distribution through the frame feet was achieved.
All support frames come complete with M24 height adjustable legs to enable the installer to level the frameworks against typical flat roof falls. Steelwork is hot dip galvanised for durability, and is manufactured to EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2011, Part 1.
