Supporting expanding operations

Published:  02 December, 2014

An international coatings company needed to find a way of improving the turnaround times for painting and blasting of major offshore fabrications inside an existing Rubb storage shelter, dating back to the 1980s.

Barrier was using the Rubb building on site as a blast and paint cell for large sections of offshore platform decks, jackets and associated structures. To facilitate these processes, Barrier needed to replace an existing roller shutter door.

Barrier initially created a wider opening in the front gable and was using specialist scaffolding to close off the entrance to contain the project steelwork and protect it from the external environment. But ever tighter deadlines for turnaround of critical project items led to the decision that a Rubb Heli-Door would be a more cost effective, practical and efficient option. Rubb supplied new gable support work and a Heli-Door which provides a 21.5m wide x 8.5m clear opening for easy access and secure closure when required.
