Bulk Bag for Soil Load Out

What it is

  • The bulk bags can hold 1.5m3 each
  • Specially designed and manufactured.
  • The frame can lift four bags at a time.
  • The bags are re-usable and are classed as lifting equipment so need to be tested every six months.
  • Each bag is assigned its own bar code, so quality and safety checks can be recorded.
  • Bags have been adapted for safe and easy use and unloading from the base.

Why we used it

  • We need to lift 3000m3+ of soil and other buildup materials onto the roof.
  • These would normally be delivered in 1 use x 1 ton lifting bags.0.7m3
  • We need to reduce lifting times and waste materials.
  • We need to reduce the safety risk of fall of materials

Was it Successful?

  • Initial testing was extremely successful taking 15 mins to attach, lift 25m into the air, lower the bag and empty. This is the same time as a one tonne bag.
  • No wastage from single use bags approx. 4,286 bags

The Next Steps

  • Address minor tweaks. Extend lifting boom by 400mm and look at releasing clips.
  • Roll out on KGX1 once the roof gardens commence.
