Flexible Lifeline Systems offers a complete line of services for the design, engineering, manufacture, installation certification. And a Complete Service & Preventive Maintenance Program of your facade maintenance equipment.

We will work with you to help specify and design the most suitable facade maintenance system and fall hazard abatement solutions for your needs. Our comprehensive range of solutions can meet the requirements of the most challenging environments. We also ensure the building facade maintenance equipment meets all local, state and federal codes.


Our custom design service can address the demands imposed by unusual structures or extreme conditions and assures that worker safety at height is protected in any situation.


Our awareness of fabrication, construction techniques and materials, in addition to our specialized knowledge of fall arrest systems, ideally positions us to contribute ideas from the earliest design and planning stages.
One of our experienced project managers will oversee every aspect of the project to guarantee the system meets all the technical and safety criteria and is delivered on schedule ready for installation by our experienced crews. By providing multiple related service lines, we offer clients an easier way of doing business that saves time and money.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Concrete Works


Whether building a home or an aircraft hangar, placing the slab changes the direction of your construction efforts. Before the slab is finished, the work crew is installing underground utilities, grading the site, and preparing footings, and generally working on a horizontal plane. Most construction doesn't really begin to move upward until after this step is completed.

 

  1. Prepare the area where the work will be done.

  2. Heavy equipment may be used to clear the footprint of the building, plants and unsuitable material should be removed, and the subgrade should be inspected to determine if it will give adequate support for the slab and the structure that will be built on it.

  3. Have the site surveyed or layout the building lines yourself. Batter boards may be used, or corner stakes can be set to allow building lines to be pulled and grades to be established for clearing and grading.

  4. Form and place any concrete foundations which will be below the slab.

 

Monolithic slabs, there may simply be a turn down edge, but for many buildings, a spread footing is poured, then CMU (concrete masonry units, commonly called block) are layed up to finished floor grade.

Set the forms for your slab.

Building lines which have been laid out on the outside building line and on grade (at the proper elevation), will allow you to form the edges of the slab straight and level.

Compact and finish grade the fill material.

For engineered buildings, testing the density of the fill may be required to meet the architect's specifications. This is usually done by a geo-technical engineering laboratory.

Plan the method you are going to use to screed the concrete.

For wide spans, you will want to set grades or some type of screed guide to allow the screed operators to keep the concrete flat, or at the required slope. Pipe screeds are used inthe placement shown in the photographs, but other techniques may be used, including grade stakes, or using a laser level and target to set wet screeds.

Determine the method you will use to place the concrete in your forms.

This should be done early in the process so that concrete trucks and other required equipment will be able to get into the area they will need access to during the concrete placement.
Aerial pumps can place concrete to specific areas of the slab via an articulated boom and hose assembly up to 120 feet from the concrete truck. They are often used for placing concrete on elevated decks or in inaccessible locations.

  1. Line pumps also use pipes and hoses to move the concrete from the truck to the placement location, but require a lot of labor to move the hoses around while in use.
  2. Concrete buckets can be used for placing the concrete in high locations or inaccessible areas using a crane or forklift.
  3. Georgia buckets are self-propelled wagons that can maneuver in tight locations to place concrete.
  4. Chuting o tailgating is discharging the concrete directly from the truck into the form.
