TITLE
Asphalt sampling platform
ARTICLE
When this asphalt plant was built, Aggregate Industries took care to include a modern and safe sampling platform in its design. The following points have been considered:

• traffic management: one-way system for wagons travelling to platform, designated parking bays,
positioning of platform to prevent technicians coming into contact with moving traffic
• access: a drawbridge leads to the platform. A flashing light and alarm indicate when it is in the dropdown
position
• lighting
• barriers: vertical lift road barrier in front of parked wagon
• manual handling: avoided with a chute on the platform for samples
• temperature devices: currently being trialled. If successful, will reduce the need for the technician to
climb on the loads.
