|Gekko Walkway System|
Gekko Systems specialises in the design, development and distribution of innovative mineral processing equipment and systems. In 2009 they approached No Bolt to design and build a lightweight modular walkway system for use as part of their Python mining systems. The walkway needed to be modular and lightweight so that it could be easily transported as part of potential export orders. This was a challenging project for a number of reasons. The walkway needed to be supported from the side rather than below to facilitate easy access underneath. The solution we developed to use cantilever brackets supported from an I-beam provided an elegant solution to the problem. The handrail and stairs were then designed around this solution . As can be seen from the attached image, the end product is an impressive example of what can be achieved when working in partnership with a customer to solve an important access issue.
