Project Background

Moddex supplied the Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) in excess of 1,500 metres for its Western Australian Kanji 1800 man mining camp site. The significance of supplying the robust Moddex Tuffrail handrails and guardrails is the short lead time given to the Moddex West Australian distributor. One 500 metre order required a 2.5 hour turnaround with a hotshot truck arriving to transport the handrails 16 hours to the Pilbara mine site.

Why was Moddex product selected?

Moddex, due to its modular design, kit form and off-the-shelf availability, is one of the few manufacturers to deliver handrails, balustrades and guardrails to anywhere in Australia both cost effectively and at very short notice.

Moddex handrails were installed by FMG’s site contractors. This is simplified due to the fact that no onsite welding or hot works are needed and no specialist skills for installation are required. Independently load tested to AS 1657, Moddex handrails offer reduced risk of corrosion, as the galvanised surface is not burnt off by welding. Moddex safety handrail design and configurations are ideally suited to tough environments, such as mine and construction sites ensuring the safety and protection of personnel from ‘no go’ zones

The system design simplicity ensures supply and installation times are greatly reduced.

Moddex will continue to supply the Kanji mining camp with more of its Tuffrail industrial rated handrails and guardrails as operation progresses and the camp continues to grow.
