Safety Proposition – Wear side only attachment removed all hot works and all external wall access requirements.

Value Proposition – Davies wear side only EzyLock system chosen as preferred attachment system for this Greenfield project. Davies wear side only attachment enabled use of much larger wear plates (up to 1.8 m2) and significantly lower bolt intensity than conventional studded systems which reduced overall installation time. Wear side only system also enabled closer mounting of bins and reduced walkway infrastructure.
