Future factory and the life cycle of walkway products
R-taso promotes industrial safety and sustainability. Our products, our product development work and the solutions designed by us have a remarkable impact in people´s safety. They also have a direct impact in environmental load caused by industry.
We take sustainability into account in our whole production chain, from the product development and designing to the manufacture, transportation and installation of our products. We aim to minimize the environmental load already in our product development work, by optimizing the amount of raw materials and aiming for long life cycle.
Factories and industrial sites go through changes and modernization during their life cycle. The steel structures should also adapt for modernization and reuse. Thanks to our product development and structures, our products can be designed into entities that can respond to the changing needs of the industry.
Our design service and product structures help our customers to optimize also their own production and processes.
R-taso sustainability factors
- Optimized raw materials
- Surface treatment
- Intelligent structures
- Modification, reuse and recycling of structures
We optimize the amount of raw materials in our steel structures already in the product development phase: our solutions have the right amount of steel in all the right places.
We use galvanizing for enduring surface treatment. Our painted structures are also always galvanized to ensure the best corrosion and abrasion protection.
We pay special attention to intelligent structures in our product development work. Modifiable and tolerance-friendly structures make installation easier and safer. Due to modular structure the products are light-weight and require minimal space in transportation, which minimizes the energy consumption and emission impact of logistics.
Our structures are designed to respond to industrial modifications. The life cycle of products is considered in the structural solutions: bolted connections and separate frame structure enable modifications and reuse during the life cycle if needed. At the end of the factory’s life cycle the steel structures can be reused in another site or recycled.
