Avonmouth Bridge: Category III Check

01/05/2024

Eadon are pleased to have successfully completed a Category III check of a new storm rigging system for two underdeck gantries on the Avonmouth Bridge in Bristol.

The C1 and C6 gantries on the Avonmouth Bridge are made of aluminum alloy frames and are suspended from steel runway beams which are fixed to the bridge’s cantilevered deck sections.

The proposed storm rigging design entails fixing a series of anchor brackets to the existing aluminum gantry structure. Flexible, adjustable slings will connect to the anchor brackets, with their other ends attaching to temporary brackets on the bridge when the gantries are parked after use.

We carried out the check of the storm rigging design in accordance with the safety standards outlined in BS EN 1808:2015: Safety requirements for suspended access equipment – Design calculations, stability criteria, construction – Examinations and tests.

We have extensive experience conducting category III and third-party checks for mechanical and structural equipment. Click here to find out more about our capabilities in this area.
