Kee Safety, Ltd., Concord, Ontario, introduces its new Crossover Safe Access Platforms to provide safe, efficient routes for maintenance, construction, and other personnel when accessing rooftops of flat and low-sloped buildings. Engineered to comply with OHS safety standards and provincial codes, the new multi-purpose Crossovers feature a Kee® Walk anti-slip modular walkway and platform system with handrails that enables workers to step over piping, HVAC equipment, and other obstructions as well as traverse changes in rooftop levels. The Crossovers can accommodate standing seam, metal profile, and other roof types, and they install without penetrating the roof membrane, according to Kee Safety.

Steps and platform floors are built using high-grade nylon treads, checker plate, or steel grating. Base feet can be roof-mounted, have fixed feet, or a combination of both. Safety railings are constructed of Kee Lite® Aluminum or Kee Klamp® Galvanized Steel for strength, durability, and corrosion-resistance. The new Crossovers integrate seamlessly with Kee Safety OHS-compliant fall protection systems and equipment to deliver a complete rooftop safety solution, the company states.

Each Crossover Safe Access Platform is custom designed based on the specific rooftop application criteria to meet worker access and safety needs. They can be delivered in fully pre-assembled systems or with modular sections, or partially-assembled flat-pack containers for simple, on-site installation, Kee Safety says.

Established in 1934, Kee Safety is a global manufacturer of safety equipment and fall protection systems. Kee Safety products are designed for new-build and renovated or upgraded commercial, institutional, industrial, and municipal buildings and facilities.

Loop is a cross between a music box, a zoetrope (a 19th-century optical toy) and a railway handcar. The retro-futuristic machine, more than two metres in diameter, creates animated fairy tale loops. It activates when a group of people work a hand lever, revealing a lit-up image cylinder that creates the illusion of motion in the drawings. The participants are in total control of the speed of the images, the frequency at which the light flickers and the rhythm of the audio composition. The black and white images recall the earliest movements and are tinted through a strobe effect. They can be viewed both inside and outside the cylinder, so they can be watched up close or far away.

Presented in conjunction with the fall launch of the book Canadian Architecture, 1967 to the present, this discussion is moderated by book co-editor Graham Livesey and is part of the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape’s Design Matters lecture series. Panelists will examine topics such as: transparency and awareness around injustice ; social responsibility; environmental sustainability; surveillance and monitoring (intelligence); the city of diversity; self-organization among citizens and grassroots movements; a city designed for everyone/inclusivity; public space as an important part of the city (for protest, debate, etc.); and economic realities.
