Having the right access equipment can make or break the success of your project. Numerous considerations go into choosing access equipment, too, from time constraints, platform storage and weight and whether your ground is level.
When it comes to access solutions, safety is paramount. Access options that can be erected and dismantled quickly are essential, and equipment should always be up to date with the supplied testing records to validate the equipment’s safety.
Using the right combination of access equipment is also important and will assist productivity and efficiency on the job site.
Mast climbers are a sensible option, particularly when dealing with installations or heavier loads. They have high payload capacities, can reach up to 200m and, depending on configuration, can accommodate up to six people. Mast climbers are particularly effective when it comes to façade works, complex building designs and overhanging or receding sections.
Suspended platforms are modular, so they can be applied to numerous configurations. They will reach up to 200m and, depending on the configuration, will accommodate multiple people, improving productivity. The biggest advantage of suspended platforms is that they are easily transported and erected on-site in very little time.
Scaffolding is generally suited to large scale, long-term projects as they require planning and erection time. If you desire efficiency, scaffolding puts workers directly where they need to work, and every scaffolding project is unique. Most importantly, scaffold can be catered to suit the complexity of your project.
All of these considerations can seem overwhelming, which is where the Usher Group comes in.
