Metalwork and steel fabrication

This work is mostly related to access safety in and around buildings. ECEX has a highly experienced team operating from our workshops in Berkshire who can survey, design, manufacture, refurbish and install metal fabrications of all descriptions. These include:

Walkways and step-overs – ECEX surveyors have the expertise and experience to survey specific requirements and propose the best solution to enable safe, trip/slip-free access designed, manufactured, and installed by the company’s skilled site team.

Typical works include step-overs and bridges over pipework, ductwork, and other obstructions; bespoke walkways and access gantries to cooling towers, chillers, and AHUs; installation of non-slip GRP tread covers to existing walkways and stairs, as well as guardrails, handrails, and balustrades to unprotected edges.

Guardrail and edge protection – ECEX can provide a comprehensive range of free-standing edge protection to avoid roof penetration as well as tubular steel guard railing fixed to roof surfaces or parapet walls. Moreover, it can supply toe boards and kick plates, and handrail extensions/modifications.

Ladders and platforms – Eliminating the risk of falling for personnel needing high-level access is one of ECEX’s specialities. The company can also audit existing means of access and recommend how to bring them into line with current regulations.

ECEX surveyors can survey a customer’s requirements and design a fully legislation-compliant solution using a combination of off-the-shelf modular components and bespoke factory-fabricated access ladders, gantries, platforms, and walkways to create the safest and most cost-effective solution.  Its experienced site team can then install nationwide.

Stairs and fire escapes – From the installation of new access stairs to the repair or refurbishment of existing, ECEX has many years of experience with staircases. The company offers fire escape stair inspection and condition / fitness-for-purpose reports, repairs, refurbishment, and anti-slip tread covers.

Bespoke fabrication – ECEX experts can help with all your fabrication needs including mesh security and storage caging, fan guards, , bespoke platforms and railings, and GRP anti-slip stair and landing treads.

AHU and ventilation services

These include AHU refurbishment and repair, fan replacements and upgrades, ductwork, and damper installation as well as the repair and replacement of heating and cooling coils. ECEX AHU and ventilations ease the day-to-day burden of maintaining critical plant, allowing you to concentrate on running your business.

Mechanical engineering services

Using skilled engineers, ECEX undertakes a complete range of mechanical services to the building services industry from replacing pipework and valves to upgrading or downsizing water storage tanks.

Among the solutions the company offers are repair, replacement, and alteration of pipework and valves; the installation of lagging and insulation to protect pipework and components from freezing weather and condensation; water storage and L8 remedial works, including the repair and renewal water storage tanks and distribution pipework to ensure safety and compliance for water systems; the supply, installation, and repair of water softeners, and fire stopping, fire barriers, and fire-rated ductwork.

Air Intake Screens

ECEX Air Intake Screens are long-lasting, weather-resistant filters for high-velocity airflow applications such as chillers, dry air coolers, AHUs, cooling towers, and air conditioning units.

These clever units prevent airborne debris such as pollen, leaves, insects, and litter from clogging internal coil fins, perishable filters, and other components.

With 10-year warranties and 15+ years typical service life, ECEX Air Intake Screens are highly durable and can be cleaned in minutes using a soft brush, garden hose or vacuum, significantly reducing maintenance time and cost, and energy consumption.

Technical contracts managers

As part of its remorseless drive for excellent customer service and outstanding customer relations, ECEX has employed a number of contract managers to join its already well-established team.

These experts assist in the day-to-day management of surveys, quotations, and site work, and provide a valuable role in answering any customer questions or queries.

The company’s technical contracts managers take full responsibility for running a diverse range of mechanical projects from initial enquiry through quotation, mobilisation, and fulfilment.
