Wrightfield are specialists in the design and build of stainless and mild steel access structures. One of our key product lines is the design and installation of bespoke platforms, gantries or walkways for any purpose or application. Be it a control station, elevated work zone, inspection area or even a bridge over a production line, a Wrightfield system can get you there.
Our platforms, gantries and walkways are individually designed to fit into or weave though any given area or workspace, under or over other machinery, or to allow access to any height for any operation.
All Wrightfield constructions are made to the highest build quality standards with safety in mind at all times. Heavy duty fully welded hand and side rails, kick plates, and the use of entirely non slip punched metal footplates are standard build practice.
Machinery is one of the main causes of injuries, both fatal and non-fatal. A high proportion of machinery-related injuries occur in the production area, and often the injuries occur when there is inadequate guarding or a complete absence of guarding. Guarding design is therefore crucial in the battle to improve safety.
It’s not always appreciated, however, how guarding for food and drink production machinery differs from guarding for other types of manufacturing equipment – and it is not just a question of using stainless steel and sealed interlock switches. One of the characteristics of the food and drink industry is that frequent access is required to assist product flow, clear blockages or spills, and carry out cleaning.
