The architectural design of the Sydney-based 8 Chifley Square mixed-use, multilevel, commercial development includes magnificent glass atriums at multiple levels. While the beautiful design provides the building with natural light and warmth, maintenance was a problem.

Manufactured by Sayfa Systems, the Raptor Groove rigid rail system is designed for work positioning. Mounted (abseil) to the internal structure and trimmed into the ceiling system, the system suited all the requirements of this unique architectural structure.

The system provides unrestricted movement for maintenance specialists, enabling unobstructed lateral access within easy reach of the facade. The tracks located in various strategic directions are also designed to allow access to the advanced ceiling lighting system without having to gain access from the areas below, ensuring the floors remain free of maintenance personnel and access equipment.

The product features include: simple installation, architecturally friendly and effortless lateral mobility. The ability to span up to 6 m with multiple user functionality makes it a suitable solution for access to areas that are otherwise almost inaccessible and dangerous to both maintenance personnel and the general public.

The system can be easily retrofitted to existing structures or extended if required. The rail system is manufactured using profiled high-grade aluminium with the Raptor trolley manufactured from stainless steel, ensuring minimal system maintenance.
