Case Study - Lower Murry Water Storage Tank

Composite Engineering was engaged by our client Freyssinet to make safe the access to a large storage tank for Lower Murray Water in Mildura. 

The water storage tank is 52m in diameter and 9m tall. Over 250m of MaxiGRATE FRP grating was supplied to allow safe and non-slip access to the roof of the storage tank.

Our MaxiRAIL FRP handrail system was installed around the perimeter of the tank. Ensuring that personnel could safely access the tank.

All were installed to meet AS1657-2018 Fixed platforms, walkways, stairways and ladders – Design, construction and installation.

Being located in Mildura, Victoria equipment located outside can be exposed to some harsh environmental conditions. MaxiRAIL and MaxiGRATE products are designed and engineered to cope the Australian conditions and will deliver years of maintencance free service.
