Mast Climbing Work Platforms (MCWPs) are a fast, convenient and cost-effective alternative to scaffolding access in the construction industry.
They offer the client an effective solution for transporting personnel and materials to optimum working height, making them the ideal solution for envelope contracts.
The speed in which they can be installed and removed from the site can offer significant labour and time savings to the client.
Our main depot is set up to service Mast Climber and Hoist projects in Manchester and the surrounding area.
Brogan Group have a vast range of mast climbers that range from light duty mast climbers capable of reaching a maximum height of 500m through to "The Beast", the largest mast climber in the world up to 10 tonnes and has a freestanding height of up to 30m.
Brogan Group have recently expanded its powered access solutions for Manchester and the North West. Our main depot is able to service Manchester projects with an increase in the logistics fleet, service crews and machine numbers (mast climbers and hoists) and we have previously worked on Projects such as West Tower in Liverpool.
Our Access Solutions for Manchester consist of powered access solutions with Mast Climbers and Hoists.
There are many factors to consider when designing an access solution in mast climbers. These include ties and tie frequency. Brogan Group’s Scanclimber units require ties at only 12m intervals vertically or can free stand with a suitable base up to 30m.
Another consideration is inner platforms which we can provide as either a fixed or sliding platform.
Double stacking where mast climbers are 'stacked' vertically in combinations of two or three is also possible with our heavy duty Scanclimber units. We are uniquely placed to offer the most cost-effective and practical solutions to our clients.
Choosing the optimum length of platform and whether to opt for a single or a twin platform is also important when designing a mast climber scheme, one example of this is that shorter twin platforms are best for brickwork. Mast climbers are generally not the best option for low-rise buildings that are below five/six storeys. They may also not be the best option for use on terraces at high level where access to only one or two floors is required, scaffolding would be better suited in this scenario. We can offer impartial advice as we can provide both.
Engaging with client’s pre-tender, enables us to assist with the development of a mast climber scheme that will ultimately deliver a saving in time and money.
