Our temporary access cradles are safe working platforms suspended from cables that can be raised and lowered into position using powered winches. They allow for works on a building’s façade to be undertaken without the need for tying in.
Suspended either directly from a gantry, structure or using a specially fabricated roof-rig system, cradles can offer an alternative, fast and convenient method of accessing heights or depths where conventional access methods such as scaffolding or mast climbers could be considered too labour intensive and costly.
Similar to cantilevered scaffolds, cradles enable access for one or two people at optimum working height and can be moved manually or electronically.
There are no height restrictions when using cradles. The load capacity on our platforms is 1000kg (max load). Power requirements: 3 phase 380v, and the working speed is 8m/min. Our platform sizes range from 1m-10m in length.
