The integrated security fence is built
and patented by JOURNAULT JOURPLEX


“Prior to the implementation of Journault Jourplex’s integrated security fence (CSI), when we needed to open the access hatch, we had to install moveable posts and fences all around the site to prevent the risk of employees falling. Employees occasionally would not take the time to perform this installation because it took too much time.”

Specifications
Supply a Journault Jourplex Inc. model CSI integrated safety fence for the floor hatches shown on the plans and specifications.

For a double access hatch:
This will consist of two unfolding sides, pivoting on hinges, and a retractable section at the top of each open door. The deployed units will be 1070 mm (3'6") in height, dimension exceeding hatch. A safety grill hinged to frame shall cover the opening of the floor hatch and will be positioned under the safety fences when closed. The safety grill will be held open by a hook on one of the hatch doors.

For a single access hatch:
This will consist of three unfolding and extensible sides, pivoting on hinges, and a retractable section at the top of the open door. The deployed units will be 1070 mm (3'6") in height, dimension exceeding hatch. A safety grill hinged to frame shall cover the opening of the floor hatch and will be positioned under the safety fences when closed. The grill will be held open by a hook on the hatch door. The safety fence and grill must be made of an aluminium or galvanized steel frame 30 mm (1 3/16") in diameter and bars (aluminium or galvanized steel) 20 mm (3/4") in diameter; spaced 125 mm (5") apart. One side of the integrated safety fence will have a hinged gate with a latch.

Allow for a 152 mm (6") reduction of the clear opening dimensions in both directions of floor hatch. This adjustment is necessary to incorporate the integrated safety fence.

Advantages
• When the hatch is opened, the operator is obliged to deploy the CSI integrated safety fence to have access to the opening, thus providing better safety

• This compact unit saves considerable space because of its storage under the hatch, while a removable guardrail system must be stowed when the trapdoor is not in use.

• The model CSI's instant access makes it quick and easy to use.

• The hatch and the integrated safety fence form a single unit, facilitating installation, therefore reducing construction costs.
