OREGON CASSETTE FLOORS ARE A WINNER

Oregon Timber Frame’s craned-in cassette floors have been recognized in key industry awards for the contribution they make to site safety and reduction of manufacturing waste.

Committed to delivering sustainable, modern construction using innovative products and safe practices, Oregon was one of the first timber frame companies to use craning–in to reduce the risk of falls from height and lifting injuries, commissioning university –based research to optimize their processes.

Sales and Marketing Director Elaine Wilson says: “Cassette floors prevent un-safe working at height since installation work is carried out from the perimeter scaffold and/or from podium platforms below. The size of any cassette prevents manual lifting, which greatly reduces manual handling injuries. Once installed the completed cassette floor provides a safe working platform for the erection of the next and subsequent floors. Prefabricated in our factories, we use also materials optimizing software to minimize manufacturing waste.”
