Bridge Deck Quicklift System
The Bison Precast QuickLift System has been developed to ensure handling times are minimised, providing you with increased output rates up to 20% against other alternative methods.
Omnia Bridge Deck planks are generally delivered on articulated vehicles, palleted in batches of 24 planks (6 deep x 4 wide) and will be delivered in a previously agreed sequence and time/date.
The Omnia Bridge Deck system can be lifted off the wagon using a traditional forklift truck with pallets being placed adjacent to the area to be fixed.
The QuickLift frame should be attached to the crane. If the 8-unit frame is to be used, we would suggest two pallets are offloaded next to each other, further minimising lifting times. The chain attachments should be released and connected to the Omnia lattice with the hooks positioned under the diagonal section of steel.
The panels should be lifted in sets of 4, 1200mm wide approximately (8 planks will be 2400mm wide approximately).
When placing the units they will need to be butted together to close any gaps, minimising the risk of grout loss. It is recommended that a method of setting adjacent ‘sets’ is adopted so that each set is placed at 1200mm dimensions. This will keep the layout of the planks close to that on the drawing, the amount of gaps to a minimum and reduce the risk of any cutting or make-ups due to creep.
Chain shorteners are provided to allow the length of the chain to be adjusted to facilitate installation.
