Pump House are proud to have recently supplied a number of their flat roof plant support frames to the University of Wales new SA1 development – Trinity St. David’s in Swansea.
Whiteheads the mechanical contractor on the project chose Flexi Support Systems on the day to support a number of rooftop air-handling units. A combination of our flexi modular light and heavy duty frames were chosen to support a variety of ahu sizes.
Pump House attended site on the day of installation to assist in the build-up, and to ensure the correct positioning of the frame feet on an inverted roof system which was present, (feet directly upon the filter membrane/insulation layer). These free standing solutions ensure that they can be repositioned last minute on site to accommodate late design changes. Pump House hold an assortment of frame lengths and widths in stock to cater for the variety of different ahu sizes available in today’s industry.
The flexible nature of our systems combined with even load distribution through our non-penetrative feet, provides the simplest and most cost effective alternative to conventional concrete plinths supports. The lightweight and portable nature of our products means they can be man handled up to the roof without the necessity of a crane lift.
