THE KELPIES 

Next to a new extension of the Forth and Clyde Canal stand two 30-meter high horse-head sculptures called The Kelpies. The sculptures form a gateway at the eastern entrance to the Forth and Clyde canal, and the new canal extension built as part of The Helix land transformation project. The Kelpies are a monument to horse powered heritage across Scotland. 
 
People often come to admire the sculptures but not many consider the difficult height access issues presented by their design, particularly reaching the sculptures lighting. 
 
Working with Eurosafe Solutions, Safety At Height have provided a safe and comfortable access solution integrating the PivotLoc and GlideLoc Yspar ladders. 
 
Both systems have a rigid central fall arrest rail, which when used with the Söll comfort traveller offers a secure confident climb at any height.  
In the event of a fall the comfort traveller will lock in position, the internal shock absorber will be activated and will reduce the load on the user and the structure.  
 
As the fall distance for the user is reduced self rescue is possible.

SAGE GATESHEAD MUSIC CENTRE 

The spectacular roof of the Sage Gateshead Music Centre – which weighs in at 750 tonnes – is made from 3000 stainless steel panels and 250 glass panels. If the roof was laid flat its 1200 square metre area is big enough to accommodate two foot-ball pitches. 
 
Architects Forman Foster, approached us to provide a fall arrest system across the spine to enable safe access for maintenance workers to reach the attachment anchors for abseiling down the face of the building. After discussions over a de-sign period of three years we provided the most aesthetically pleasing solution comprising of stainless steel rail which exactly matched the profile of the building and gave continuous fall protection along the roof. 
 
The accounting giant Sage Group has just invested £50m in developing a new 575,000 sq. ft global headquarters at Newcastle Great Park. The development in-corporates an innovative style of architecture reflecting the ambience of both the prestigious location and the company's high profile name.
