Allround Access Pty Ltd, with the support of Layher Australia, designed and supplied this access solution for Power Blasting Pty Ltd for a covered berth at HMAS Cairns, North Queensland.

The choice of Layher Allround Scaffolding was deliberate as it was the only scaffolding that addressed the safety requirements demanded by the Australian NAVY. With the threat of Cyclone Yasi the scaffold was certified by local engineer EDMS to withstand a wind force of 306kmph (CAT 5 plus wind loading) with all boards in place. The scaffold needed to bridge the entrance of the berth to allow access in case of an emergency.

Starting independently from both sides, the construction of the scaffold was continuously monitored until the two spurs married.

The connection at the centre of the 23 m free span was simple with only a 20 mm sag and 10 mm creep, demonstrating the precision engineering of the Layher Allround scaffold and the expertise of Allround Access Pty Ltd (a first time Layher user).

Mick Power of Power Blasting Pty Ltd said it was "an outstanding performance with an outstanding product".

Thanks to Mick Power, Tom and Ian Sanderson and the Australian Navy for the use of these photos.
