Product Overview

A roof is often the perfect place to hide unsightly air conditioning units and other plant items. Don’t add unnecessary loads to your roof with heavy structures. Our innovative design and lightweight mounting systems are capable of supporting loads of up to 6000kg.

All materials used in the construction of these mounts are compatible with the corresponding roofing system, reducing the need for larger supporting sub-structures.

Skeletal platforms offer a robust and cost effective solution to the mounting of air handling units, capable of carrying loads up to 2000kg.

We have a range of options for screens and louvres to hide plant equipment from sight.

All materials used in the construction of our premium range of mounts are compatible with the roofing system and are adjustable to suit your condenser or air handling unit. Installation was never so easy.

Product Description Image
Handrails Handrails can be added to any MonkeyToe® Mesh Platform where it is greater than 300mm above the roof as required by AS/NZS1657. Handrails are the standard, modular MonkeyToe® system which are 1100mm above the deck and include kick, knee and top rail
Louvres Aluminium louvres can be used to hide unsightly plant items while reducing solar glare and air conditioning running costs. The high grade aluminium is corrosion resistant and long lasting. Wind loading is 20$ less than perforated mesh.
Louvre Supports Louvre supports can be fabricated and added to any MonkeyToe Platform using our specialised extrusions. Standard louver systems can be simply fixed to the supports using M10 sliding nuts (no on-site drilling!). Side stanchions are bolted into the platform trusses while front stanchions are fabricated as part of the truss.
Mesh Screens MonkeyToe® provides a full range of mesh screening to platforms. Screens can be perforated aluminium, composite materials or sound baffles depending on the project requirements. Contact us for more details on options available.
