Sheet Retention System

Over the years there have been many incidents where material sheeting stacked on edge have toppled and caused injury to operatives.

The most effective way to store materials is to lay them flat but there are instances where the lack of space will not allow this. This project has this issue in some areas and the site team have come up with a system to allow sheets to be stacked on edge and prevent them from toppling over.

The sheet retention system (SRS) as it has become known on site, has become common practice on site for retaining the edge stacking of plasterboard, plywood, IPS panelling, white rock panelling to name a few.

This is a simple idea using equipment usually found on site. Prior to this any stacking of sheet materials on edge relied on the bottom offset angle of stacking to provide its stability and due to safety issues with this historically they have prevented materials from being stored using this method for some time, so the introduction of the SRS has been vital due to the restricted space, eliminating the toppling risk to operatives.

SRS setup comprises of an angle frame with ratchet strap to be fixed at designated floor and wall points which Dictates the angle of stacking and a ratchet strap to loosen.
