Whether in the remote areas of Western Australia and Northern Territory, or the newly developing mining regions of Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia, Moddex Systems is increasingly being identified as the supplier of choice for safety handrails and guardrails.

The company has been working with many of Australia’s miners and contractors, specifying and supplying its Tuffrail handrails and guardrails for all mining disciplines and accommodation facilities, ensuring the safety of hundreds of site workers and guaranteeing operational productivity.

Mine site installation of conventional handrails and guardrails requires hot work permits, and safety precautions such as barricades and fire spotters, and at times shutdowns necessitating specialist trades eg, welders and boilermakers.

The Moddex Group is registered to ISO 9001 and the installation process of its handrails and guardrails requires no specialist skills nor on-site welding. The drawbacks of hazardous toxic fumes and unsightly cold galvanising and painting touch-ups are avoided, coupled with reductions in direct costs and overheads.

Independently accredited to Australian Standard AS 1657 stringent load testing criteria, the handrail and guardrail tubing and clamp-type fittings are supplied hot-dip galvanised as standard, with wet spray painting or powder coating as options. The integrity of this corrosion protection and surface treatment is maintained due to the avoidance of site welding.

The modular design can suit diverse layouts and applications, from safety barrier protection at ‘no go’ zone and plant areas, rail track culverts and water reservoirs, to equipment lay-down and storage yards, workforce accommodation and catering facilities etc.
