Walking ways/cat walks are the construction parts that being used for workers during construction. Once the construction is finalised, subject walkways and cat walks are being used for cleaning and/or maintenance. Ihis situation is determined according to the usage areas and purposes. İt is also used for security purposes in bridges, landscaping areas, factories, silos, stadiums, shopping malls, parks and gardens. If the walkways made
of steel construction are made with a project, they are durable and safe and offer along-lasting use. However, depending on the structure of the area to be used, it varies according to the static calculation and the material and design used.
The catwalk is usually built at high elevations and sits on the lower supports (console arm, scissor head, etc.) for short distances, which are made for transportation from one place the another. The catwalks can be made in spans between 40 CM and 1 meter according to the project details. Catwalks are installed in the areas close to the ceiling of buildings, houses, factories, offices, on the roof ends, on the consoles on the columns or on the heads of the trusses. Production and installation can be done with various equipment depending on the structure of the roof or the area where it is installed. Catwalk features and catwalk measurements vary according to the place to be used, the structure and the load to be exposed.
How does the application process of catwalks work, which methods and materials are used during this process?
How can the user benefits of using catwalks be indicated?
Catways are very effective in making dangerous-to-reach areas accessible to users. It is important to manufacture with reference to relevant occupational safety standards and requested safety principles. Thanks to their use, safe working environments can be provided in theater, engineering, decoration, construction work and many other sectors. In elevated positions, it is common for the worker to carry out and complete his work without life-threatening panic, thanks to catwalks. Catwalks are also used to make the use of bridges and smilar areas safer. In other words, the benefits of catwalk in daily life are not countless.
