Our team are renowned for their "out of the box" thinking as can be demonstrated with the many devices and machines already produced, hence they are ideally suited to assist in any conceptual study or feasibility study.

Above shows a new idea for a simple and quickly deployed lightweight and adjustable paint collector that can be moved to anywhere on the tower during re-painting of the structure.

We have expertise in core design activities across the OHL and rail sectors with ability to model and analyse structures and cable using recognised design software packages such as PLS Cadd and Optimal. This provides an in-house service that can then apply any supplementary device or piece of temporary works to re-analyse the affect of any complex solutions that may be associated with any new concepts.

Having been involved in the development of many new products both in the OHL, HV underground and rail industry we have formed links with numerous manufacturers that can produce both one-off's of high production using various methods. Using Solid Works we can quickly draft up a concept that can created using 3D printing or stereolithography rapid prototyping technologies before going to tooling and production.

Since the introduction of the Working at Height Regulations in 2006 we have designed many solutions and devices that enable safe climbing techniques to be utilised by workers without affecting their work activity. In conjunction with a well renowned height safety product supplier we are able to design and test new systems and equipment that can be of benefit to the industry.
