Nowhere is safety more important than a hospital.
Founded in 1886, Waikato Hospital is a major regional hospital in Hamilton and provides specialised and emergency healthcare for the Midlands and Waikato region with patients referred from surrounding hospitals.
Monkey Toe was contracted to provide a range of access solutions including roof walkways, stairs and roof access systems to many areas that had high maintenance requirements but no provision for safe access.
Many of these required a combination of ladders, handrails and custom stairs. One area required Monkey Toe to design, supply and install a fire escape stair that was impassable to public but always clear in the event of a fire. To achieve this, it involved extensive discussion, and consultation with the Hospital to ensure the solution met their needs.
"Monkey Toe was able to be a complete solution provider; right from early design through to installation. Due to the nature of the site, many of the systems were custom designed."
