Approached by Hawkins Construction on behalf of Airways – FGS Structural was asked to build a security cage into the Mt Robertson Radar Tower. 

Our team was brought in by helicopter to measure and install – the landing pad only just big enough to accommodate the aircraft.  Harnesses were required for the safety of our team members. 

Difficult access meant the need for a custom lifting support beam designed to lift the cage up between the tower supports. 

The cage was designed to sit under the radar to stop people entering the radar and potentially tampering with it. The steel barred cage was hot dipped galvanised after fabrication.

Job done ! Troy Wilton appreciating the sunset at the end of the project.
