Installation of rooftop support solution

Published on: 5 October 2016

Avantor, a company based in Gliwice (Poland) delivers chemical products and materials for laboratories. The installation of their business premises provided some interesting challenges,avantor3 particularly when it came to a rooftop solution, which Walraven were able to professionally resolve.

The problem

The site required ventilation ducts to be installed in a very confined space. In addition, the ducts could not be attached to the floor or the walls. Therefore, Avantor asked Walraven for help in designing a bespoke rooftop support solution.

Our standard rooftop solutions BIS Yeti and BIS Urus could not be used here. Therefore, we opted for our heavy frame system: Maxx. With this system we installed the large ventilation ducts above each other in layers. These were attached to the main substructure of the building because the floor and walls could not be used.

We produce all the required parts ourselves. This meant we could supply everything to the location at Avantor within 48 hours. Avantor were very pleased with the speed of service, and the fact that we fully prepared and completed everything ourselves. From estimating to execution, we provided all the information and performed all the work.
