Client: Irish Water
Address: Waterford, Ireland.
Brief: To design, manufacture and install customised steel reinforced Fibreglass/GRP (Glass reinforced plastic lids/covers for installation over a concrete peat media filter tank.
BMS Design/Manufacturing Details:
The lids were 2 m in width by 5.5 m in length, with 8 lids installed side by side to run the full length of the tank. They were a maximum of 2 m in width to allow for easy transport. Manufacturing took place in BMS ISO 9001 factory in Longford, Ireland.
The lids were manufactured in rust/rot proof GRP and were delivered and installed at the site in a few hours by BMS.
The lids are safe to walk on and can easily be lifted on and off with light lifting equipment e.g. a high loader when required via the integral lifting hooks.
The installation of the lids completely eliminates the H&S risk caused by an open media filter tank along with minimising any odours.
The project showcases BMS custom manufacturing ability. The lids are a great solution for an open tank which poses a H&S risk or odour issues and can be manufactured to order depending on your requirements.
