Unistrut Rooftop Solutions
A General Contractor in Libya had a project on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea in which they needed a walkway on top of a petroleum facility. The project had several unique requirements; the coastal environment required special corrosion protection, the roof pitch was very steep, and there was a lack of skilled labor for this installation.
- System must be pre-fabricated to allow unskilled workers to easily install system
- System must be specially coated to resist the high salinity in the atmosphere
- Supports must be built to account for steep pitch of roof.
Unistrut Cincinnati was able to design/ engineer a roofwalk system to meet all the design criteria. Unistrut offered a unique triple applied marine coating over hot dipped galvanized channel and fittings to resist corrosion. Unistrut was able to pre-fabricate all the uprights at unique angles to allow for a simple installation and level walking surface. All uprights were numbered and tagged to make installation fool proof. The entire system was fabricated in Ohio and shipped to Libya via a single sea freight container. The project was installed in a couple weeks and received rave reviews from the end user!
