ABOUT THE PROJECT:
Haslin Constructions was contracted to construct a new substation and decommission the ageing facility, based on a safety recommendation report from Endeavour Energy.
There are a number of aspects of the design of Marayong Zone Substation which are typical of substations of this era, however, these designs are now undesirable from a safety perspective. The report recommended a new substation with indoor 33kV and 11kV switchboards and three 25MVA low noise power transformers be constructed on the site adjacent to the existing building. Once the new substation is complete and commissioned, the existing substation will be retired and removed from the site. The project is estimated to cost $18 million, with a target timeframe for the retirement of the existing substation of 2021.
Haslin Constructions has previous experience in substation construction projects and sought a supplier that could offer a specialist fire retardant fence mesh to surround the perimeter fencing.
Working around high voltage equipment made it imperative that any spark or fire risks were minimised, and Fence Banner Mesh was able to supply a quality custom printed fire retardant fence mesh for this purpose.
OUR SOLUTION: FIRE RETARDANT FENCE MESH
Fence Banner Mesh supplied 50 metres of fire retardant fence mesh printed with Haslin Constructions’ logo in a large bold design. This fence mesh is constructed from PVC coated polyester and has fire resistant properties compliant with AS/NZS 1530.3:1999. Ultimately this results in a product that is less likely to catch alight and cause a large blaze on site.
Designed to comply with Australian flammability testing procedures, fire resistant fence mesh is ideal for surrounding building sites where fire resistant properties are crucial.
Plus, Fence Banner Mesh specialises in custom printed mesh, so not only is the product fire resistant but it looks great as well. This open weave mesh provides privacy, advertises your brand, and also complies with fire retardant guidelines.
