Stay Up, Stay Safe, Stay Connected
A couple of things not mentioned about Safway's system is the head clearance. Give or take a couple of inches, you have 6'-9" of clearance. That makes a difference working in the semi-darkness of a boiler. One of the originators of the design especially liked the positive locking and the redundancy to be able to visually see that the ends were properly seated and fastened. Other than hitting it as hard as you can there is no positive way to know that QES or similar system is locked in. It does make it a bear to disassemble.
i prefer safway over QES i dont care for QES pans they will flip out from under you if the dog ear is broke and the pins on QES pop out to easy for my liking...i will agree it is fast and sturdy but thats why its name is Quick Erect System....but all in all i really dont like safway when its caked in refrac i guess there is good and bad in it all...im a scaff put it in front of me and ill put it together
All Around by any name is the best....and I agree Safway steel plank style are the best over dog eared. Straddling the standard is way better than infills.....AT-Pac makes a good product. Has anyone tried Peri Rossette?? Is really great just need to make sure you have access to everything they make to make it work great.
