Leading Edge Advantages
Configured Platforms’ unique system design and in-house CAD software allows us to design your platform within the modular options available in a very short timeframe. Series 1, 2 & 3 Platforms are configurable in any 600mm increment size in length and width within the parameters. Screen and acoustic surrounds are configurable in 1200, 1600, 2000 & 2400mm heights and to any 600mm increment length around the perimeter of the platform. Guardrails are also configurable to any 600mm increment length around the perimeter of the platform.
100% KIT FORM
Pre-engineered Kit Form Platforms are supplied with an assembly instruction manual and drawings and require no specialised tools. Platform Kits are easily freighted direct to your building site UK wide and further. While the Configured Platforms are designed to be easily built by the average tradesperson, we do provide a free one day Approved Installer Training Session for those who would like to carry a Configured Platforms Approved Installer ID Card, with the option (subject to qualifying) to be included on our Approved Installer Team, with your details displayed on our website.
Configured Platforms are surface mounted and non-penetrating, avoiding the potential for roof leaks. Each wedge for Series 1 Platforms and each frame for Series 3 platforms is supplied with either Configured Platforms’ Foam Rubber Tape or Configured Platforms’ high strength VHB Tape applied to the underside, depending on whether the platform is to be adhered to the roof or not.
The all-aluminium construction make the platforms very light yet very strong, with aluminium weighing approximately 33% of the weight of steel. Our platform design requires far less metal than conventional designs and this further reduces the weight of our Platforms to only approximately 25% of the weight of the equivalent size galvanised structural steel platform. No need for expensive over engineering of your roof structure – Value Engineering at its best!
With all parts manufactured from aluminium and all fixings being stainless steel you have the assurance of a long lifespan even in the severest conditions – 20 year product warranty.
The surface mounted design makes the Configured Platforms ideal for Retrofit applications to existing buildings making air conditioning upgrades, and re-roofs fast and easy.
The modular design of the system allows for options of Guardrail, Screens and any of the 3 Acoustic Surrounds to be used on any of the Series 1, 2 & 3 Platforms initially or as an upgrade at a later date without any adjustments to the existing platform.
From placing your order to receiving your platform you will be impressed at the turnaround time. Most average sized platforms would be dispatched the same or the following day – with larger ones taking a day or two more, but still not to be compared to the lead time for a hot dip galvanised structural steel platform.
This one is undeniable, from the product itself, the cranage required to get the platform onto the roof, the on-site labour, and to the cost of other trades, Configured Platforms are way ahead.
If it’s one thing we can all do without …. It’s unnecessary hassle. Keep everyone in the chain smiling, Specifier, Architect, Engineer, Project Manager, Air Con/Mech Technician, Environmentalist, Cost Analyst.
Configured Platforms’ complete system design is structurally engineer certified to 2.5kPa – so any configurable design is Pre-engineered to 2.5kPa (255Kg/m²) – Complies to BS EN 516 2006 and BS EN 1090-3 2008.
This product is ideal for the specifier with online specification documents available 24/7 and project specific renders, technical drawings, weights and costings available on request. Specifiers have their own portals where their projects are saved.
