Installing over live trafficHaving lane closures is time consuming and costly, but is often used when carrying out repairs or when refurbishments are taking place. Varley and Gulliver can dispense with these on overbridges by installing edge protection prior to the complete removal of the existing parapet.
Site Survey, inspections and RepairOver the last 40 years the main parapet designs installed on the highway include Baco, HDA and British Steel. With our ownership of Baco and HDA designs and our rights to repair British Steel systems, Varley and Gulliver can offer an unparalleled service.This is in addition to our own designs and those of Lionweld Kennedy whom we acquired in 2004. Varley and Gulliver offer a full site survey of existing parapet systems and will provide a report detailing the products history, ownership and condition. Varley and Gulliver also offer a presentation covering the assessment and identification of existing systems. The presentation shows the information required that can often identify to us the system in question and the required repair negating the need for a site survey.
