Service Risers

GRP Service Risers are a sustainable, efficient and cost effective solution to protecting service apertures, voids and risers in all building types.  These apertures provide access for pipework and ducting between floors and are recognised as posing a serious Health and Safety risk for Main Contractors to manage, normally requiring temporary boarding and perimeter protection with scaffolding.

The MCP solution allows the apertures to be completely and permanently protected, either at the same time as pouring the concrete or immediately after, depending on the Main Contractors preference.  Using GRP brings significant benefits over alternative products as it is designed to reduce installation time, cost and the need for special site permits.  The pipe and ductwork can then be installed from the safety of the MCP deck, removing the inherent danger of working around open apertures.  The deck can be progressively cut to allow more services to be added as required, thereby removing the time constraints caused by use of the typical steel grid installation.  Other benefits include:

  • No hot works permit required for installation or post-work
  • Lightweight means it is easy to transport to and around sites
  • Maintenance free
  • Straightforward to work with

MCP offer the Service Riser deck as a Supply Only or a Supply and Install package across the UK.
