Frames

Powerful Forces

A ship’s structure is subject to constant and varying motions due to waves, propulsion and temperature changes. These actions expose transit frames to extremely powerful forces, conditions rarely encountered – if at all – with land-based applications involving static walls. Thus, the design, materials, construction and finish of frames are vital in determining the safety of frames in withstanding cons The MCT Brattberg range of transit frames, for both welding and bolting, meet the stringent demands of offshore and maritime applications. Frame units are cut, welded, ground and stamped with our logo, date of manufacture and material specification for identification and traceability. The complete frames are inspected and then dipped in a corrosion-resistant paint before being inspected for quality.

Safety

Cable and pipe transits must have features that make them safe in a variety of hazardous environments to protect people, property – including intellectual property like computer data – and to help ensure the continued operations of a business or other organization.

Cable management

Before working with insert blocks, cable management has to be carried out. Basically, this means that all cables passing through frames must have enough movement to allow them to be positioned correctly to facilitate fitting the insert blocks.

Insert blocks

For first-rate insert blocks, a lot of thought and good science goes into what may at first seem a simple transit component. But the performance of blocks is a key element in assuring the safety of cable transits.

Professional installation

No matter how many safety features are built into the components of cable and pipe transits, they can only be realized through correct installation. This means that transits must be complemented with training to maximize the safety awareness in all stakeholders.

Testing and inspection

Testing for certification purposes is carried out in independent laboratories throughout the world. The Fire Test Procedure (FTP Codes) Standards, however, apply equally to all laboratories, no matter their location.
