A fantastic day was had here in Kiernan Steel on May 27th – The Minister for Jobs Enterprise and Innovation Mary Mitchell O’Connor officially opened our new facility – This was followed by tours of the workshop and over to the Marquee for lunch – John Spillane and Frank Forde entertained the crowd of over 400 – Thanks to everyone who took part and came to support us on the day.
The innovative concept behind this system lies behind an edge protection system with a telescopic post. This conceptual leap forward has been the key to this system’s major advantage: quick installation without the need for tools, and it certainly lives up to its ‘rapid’ title as it can be erected 10 times faster than traditional drill and fix systems.
Unique Features of the RAPID EPS system
- 10 times faster than existing drill & fix systems
- 20 metres can be erected in less than 10 minutes
- No tools or drilling required
- No cracking of concrete
- Minimal training needed
- Significant savings in time and labour
This edge protection system offers fast, innovative and safe protection against the construction industry’s biggest killer: falls from height.
Key developments include systems suitable for concrete, steel and timber frame builds, as well as temporary edge protection of stairwells, trailer and trenching / shorting systems, all with a key benefit of fast and easy installation.

Project Start – December 2014 Project Completion Date – April 2015
This project involved the expansion of 4,500 m2 to the existing factory to facilitate the installation of a new post fabrication shot blasting machine and an automated plate line machine.
Capital initiatives in our company expansion were co-funded by the European Regional Development fund & Enterprise Ireland under the Border, Midlands & West Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020.
Post Fabrication Shot Blasting:
KSSL has incorporated a post fabrication shot blasting into its manufacturing process through the installation of a new Kaltenbach Triathlon A3010HD shot blaster which has the passage range of 3100mm x 1700mm. Powered by 10 no. 22KW turbines. This machine can adequately shot blast complete fabricated & welded steel sections, including steel trusses.
New Automated Plate Line:
KSSL has incorporated a Peddinghaus HSFDB 2500 automated plate line into its manufacturing process. This machine is equipped with the ability to drill, mill, tap, countersink, deburr, Oxy-fuel cut, Plasma cut and mark steel plate using the latest tooling technology which combines speed and versatility. The automated plate line provides the most efficient & quickest way possible to manufacture steel plate elements varying from 6mm to 100mm in thickness to the highest quality with minimum waste.
Project Investment gives KSSL:
- Greater overall annual output capacity & increased speed of production
- A better quality standard of finished product for our clients
- Scope to compete for larger projects with higher client quality & tighter programme requirements
