Framlingham Castle, Suffolk

THE BEST ACCESS SOLUTION

PROJECT *

The team at UK System Scaffold Hire has over 150 years combined experience in designing and managing projects using HAKI Access Systems, so it has to be a very unusual request to “be a first”.

Two 9.5m public access staircases were installed with minor modifications to protect important historic features of the 12th Century Fortress. It was then that English Heritage realised that the temporary staircases provided an opportunity to create a unique visitor attraction by adding a slide.

UKSSH had to keep the design compact, while at the same time creating a waiting area at the top of the slide and ensuring that the 6.5m high slide could curve around the temporary staircase, keeping clear of the scaffold buttress

The solution was to move the entrance step to the opposite side of the staircase, adding an extra 1,655x1.655 bay and an entrance step going up to the first landing, meaning that only two 1.655m bays needed to be added on for a walk way and waiting area, this allowing the slide to sweep unhindered to the ground.
