'Quicker and cheaper than concrete'
The company launched in the UK in 2001 with the introduction of simple frameworks to support condensing units. The companyfs aim was to provide an easy and economical alternative to poured concrete and concrete blocks for supporting plant on a flat roof without penetrating or damaging the roof surface. The result was a cheaper, safer, less intrusive and quicker to install alternative to concrete.

The on-site flexibility of the framework systems proved popular and the product range was developed to include cost effective supports for duct and pipework runs. Two simple walkway systems were also added to offer a secure route for service engineers and other personnel.

Complete support solution for flat roofs
The company now offers a complete support solution for plant equipment on flat roofs. Most installations use Big Foot Systemsf standard range of modular frameworks but it also works on large-scale bespoke projects:
All Big Foot Systems need is a roof drawing or weights and dimensions of the roof plant in order to prepare a quotation.

Big Foot Systems boasts an experienced technical support team, setting the standard on any installation while meeting the needs of architects, consultants, engineers and contractors.

Systems are typically made of box-section galvanised steel frames and galvanised steel strut mounted on non-penetrative Big Foot Adjustable Legs with Anti-Vibration Mats or Big Foot Fix-It Feet.
