About new build fall protection

Whether you are an architect, specifier or contractor we can provide the best technical advice to ensure your new build project remains compliant at every stage. We can offer PPE and fall limiters perfect for use during construction, through to fully compliant integrated height safety systems for ongoing building maintenance.

Our project managers and technicians are expert at following architectural plans. We can resource all the fall protection system components and undertake the installation according to your exact specification and provide BIM models which can be integrated into your specifications. Equally, if fall protection is a late addition to a new build project, we can assess the structure in question and, with our unrivalled technical knowledge and practical understanding of worker safety, propose the ideal height safety solution for your needs.

About retrofit fall protection

Retrofiting fall protection onto older structures can be challenging. With buildings that have been in place for many years, and may have undergone extensions at different times, your first thought may be  ‘where do I start?’. That’s the perfect time to contact us, we have extensive experience with older buildings and challenging retrofits.

 

The HCL approach

Using HCL’s site survey service is ideal in instances where you require a fall protection system to be installed retrospectively, either onto an existing structure or as a replacement for a system that is no longer fit for purpose.

Our approach is to identify the unique characteristics of the situation and the safety at height requirement and respond with an effective tailored proposal

 

Whether a building owner, a facilities management company or contractor, HCL can support you with a complete fall protection system design, specification and estimating service.

We will assess the structure in question and, with our unrivalled technical knowledge and practical understanding of worker safety at height, propose the ideal fall protection solution for your needs.
