Approached by Hawkins Construction for the Airways - FGS Structural were asked to build a security cage into the Mt Robertson Radar Tower.
Our team were bought in by helicopter to measure and install - the landing pad only just big enough to accommodate them. Harnesses were required for the safety of our team members.
Difficult access meant the need for a custom lifting support beam designed to lift the cage up between the tower supports.
The cage was designed to sit under the radar to stop people entering the radar and tampering with it.
The steel barred cage was hot dipped galvanised post fabrication in our Auckland plant.
