Project Summary

The TRAD Group of Companies are one of the largest Scaffolding and Fall Prevention Providers within the UK. TRAD Safety Systems supply a working platform providing a total on-site fall safety solution. The products are used throughout the UK on building sites where building platforms are required. These Safety Decks have to meet tight safety and durability tests, and withstand continual drop load shocks to ensure no construction worker is in danger of falling through the panel.

TRAD Safety Systems used 3Di to re-design their existing panel, which was constructed from a range of extrusions and was becoming non-commercial,  and they needed a single shot injection moulded panel.



Some designs were reviewed to establish the best panel grid format. The panel not only had to remain strong, it also had to be designed to flex and absorb the load.

The detailed CAD was produced, shot weight checked and FEA tests carried out. Once the specification was agreed with the client and moulders, a full size PP CNC panel was produced and tested.

The tool was commissioned and project managed through T1 samples to production. To date, many 10,000’s of panels have been produced.
