Case study story


When Scan Computers experienced a break-in, two calls were made: one to the police and one to High Access. Considerable damage had occurred to the tech retailer’s product warehouse in Middlebrook, leaving 13 holes in the steel cladding roof. The aftermath of the crime left security compromised and stock unprotected. A rapid response was required.

The High Access team was swiftly on the scene out of hours to repair damage to the roof and protect the company’s exposed stock. Quickly, but meticulously, we reviewed the damage and securely tted roof sheets using tailored skylight sections.

Our rapid response allowed Scan Computers to get back to business with minimum disruption.

Works carried out:

  • Reviewed roof sheet profile on site, returning to the yard to source materials to be used as suitable cover penetrations
  • Returned to site with skylights and retro fitted materials to size
  • Supplied and installed 10no roof patches using tailored skylight sections
  • Fixed into position using sealer head tech fixings and butyl tape
  • Overlap at header of skylight sections sealed with suitable polysulphide mastic
  • Continued patchwork of the x 3no remaining holes to roof sheets and skylight
  • Removed and disposed of site debris

Equipment deployed:

  • Supplied working at height sheeting and cladding team with SSSTS site supervisor
  • 33m truck mounted access platform with IPAF operatives
