A jig is supplied together with all the specialized tools and drive bits required (power tools cannot be supplied due to power consumption issues (120v vs 220v) This option is excellent when the requirement is approx. 200 + meters in length and economically valued assembly team are available and the site location is secure. On site training can be offered. Once container is unpacked and worksite ready, the assembly team of 2 to 3 semi skilled fitter can build one 3m x 1.5m section is approx. 25 minutes.

When we ship SEMI – ASSEMBLED, we assemble the section and stack them inside shipping container. We also assemble all the handrails where possible , which are stacked inside the container. Assembly time for 2 semi-skilled fitters to attach handrails and join the walkway together is approx. 15 minutes

Option 3: DELIVERED FULLY ASSEMBLED
When we ship fully assembled, we assemble and attach everything. This includes handrails, LED lights*, deicers*, electrical junction boxes* etc. This is the best option when site costs are high, climatic conditions are unfavorable for sitework and quick execution is required. This option is normally applied to the pivot (snake) walkway or Xrosswater foldable heavy lift walkway (1.7 tonne buoyancy)
