How to install construction chutes in high-rise buildings
Project managers usually have challenges with waste or trash management in high-rise properties. Several factors must be considered from the number of workers, tools, and safety. However, with the larger volume of trash involved, installing construction chutes is the perfect option to save time, money, and effort. Moreso, the construction company will be adhering to the OSHA’s regulation regarding the installation of trash chutes in a high-rise building during construction, renovation, or demolition projects.
It is, however, mandatory to install construction chutes properly to avoid accidents. In view of the above, the following steps are involved in installing construction chutes in high-rise buildings.
Step 1: Install the anchor for the construction chutes on the parapet, roof, window, or balcony of the last floor of the building. Support and ensure that the anchor is properly protected against slipping.
Step 2: Install the winch by setting it on the anchor. This will provide the needed support when pulling up the chutes from the ground.
Step 3: Connect the debris chutes to the ground. Ensure to use an adequate number of plastic chutes. Put all the chutes into one another and connect them with chains on both sides with one linking to the other.
Step 4: Release the picking bar from the winch to the ground and connect the chains to the topmost chute, on the fifth chain hole. Ensure it secure.
Step 5: Lift the debris chutes up by using the winch. When the topmost chute has reached the Parapet or the anchor, secure it to the anchor using chains on its sides.
Step 6: Remove the picking bar from the debris chutes. Take out the picking bar from the winch, and safely remove the winch from the anchor.
Step 7: Install the hopper chute into the already installed debris chute system. This will allow easy disposal of debris or trash.
Step 8: Install guardian to protect workers from tripping over when dumping debris into the debris chute.
Step 9: Install adequate ground controls around the debris chute, even if it connects with a dumpster.
