Award-winning telescopic connectors feature in MPA Precast ‘Sharing Good Practice 2021/22’
Invisible Connections is delighted our innovative telescopic connectors for precast stairs and landings are included in this construction industry publication.
‘Sharing Good Practice 2021/22’ is the new guide launched by MPA Precast. Its purpose is to help organisations learn from each other and encourage pro-active implementation of changes which make the construction industry safer and healthier. ‘Safer by Sharing… Safer by Action.’
Showcasing achievements and innovations which transform health and safety in construction, the guide offers ideas which can be applied, or adapted, by other organisations to help save lives and prevent injuries. Summaries of all the entries for the prestigious Mineral Products Association & British Precast Health & Safety Awards are included. These awards are underpinned by the MPA’s ‘Vision Zero – Safe & Well Every Day,’ which calls for mitigation of the risks which account for 94% of industry fatalities, ‘the Fatal Six.’
Our telescopic connectors won the ‘Safer operations on site’ category. TSS and RVK connectors structurally support precast landings oﬀ core walls, without the need for steel support angles. As a result, using our precast stair landing connectors significantly reduces the risk of falling from height, the risk of being struck and the risk of exposure to respirable crystalline silica (RCS). All of which makes for considerably safer construction sites, as well enabling substantial programme efficiencies.
To see just how much safer, simpler and quicker installing stair flights and landings can be when using telescopic connectors, watch our video. Or to discuss a specific project requirement, please contact us for more information and technical support.
