“Griptech ticks all of the boxes for both heel and wheel safety”

On the South Perth project we were able to engage with the council and their chosen contractor to design and deliver replacement, compliant grating. The South Perth viewing platform is a tricky angular shape which meant that we took extra care at our design stage. ORCA successfully site measured, designed and manufactured the replacement grating to slip neatly into the existing rebate once the non compliant grating was removed.
