WHAT WE DO
Use of the V-FRAME in other industries
Wherever a horizontal span is to be made to access something without anchor points the V-frame is the best solution. Examples of locations are real estate properties, factories, warehouses or even under bridges. Before starting a project with the V-frame we make a task risk analysis in order to ensure a rescue should this be needed. Thinking ahead and therefore securing a safe working place is one of our top priorities.
The V-frame can be used in silos and tanks with a diameter of 9 up to 20 meters. It can be adjusted to the specific required diameter so it will fit perfectly. The better it fits, the easier it gets for the inspector, cleaner and/or welder to move around within the tank or silo to perform their work.
How does it work?
The V-frame will be transported to the location in parts (fits a medium sized van). These parts will be assembled near the tank and brought inside the tank using rigging from either an inspection door or hatch on the side, the bottom or the top. We require a minimum gap of 10 centimeters on top of the tank using fixed anchor points or our Vortex. When the V-frame is installed, we will guide the inspector or technical staff onto the V-frame. They can perform their work and we will keep a close eye on their safety. When the job is done, we will guide them safely back outside the tank.

NEW APPROACH TO SILO INSPECTIONS
V-frame is a multi-functional tool that creates safe access to tanks, silos and more.
