Mast Climbers2018-09-30T14:51:08+00:00

Opened in 2017 in St Helens, our mast climbers division is transforming the face of construction projects across the UK.  We started with 70 single / 35 twin units, and by 2019 that capacity will have doubled.

The growth reflects the changing nature of many projects and the need for an alternative to ladders, staging or conventional scaffolding. For occupied buildings, they offer a less obtrusive and disruptive access solution than scaffolding, reducing the impact on residents. The platforms can be raised at night and are less likely than scaffolding to be scaled by vandals.

Mast climbers are ideal when speed is important. Quicker to set up than conventional scaffolding they allow more efficient working, getting labour and materials into position swiftly. Changing the height of the working platform is as easy as pressing a button. Using mast climbers where appropriate can result in considerable savings in a project’s labour cost.

Our service is complete, including site surveys and preparation, building ties, erection, cabling, inspection and hazard identification. Safety is always paramount. Our mast climbers have as many as 20 specialised main safety features and are inspected and maintained to the highest standards.

The capacity of our mast climbers is impressive:

  • Maximum length 32m for a twin mast unit

  • Maximum mast climber height is 250m

  • Maximum payload is 4,500kg

  • An alternative to conventional scaffolding, staging or MEWPs
  • Ideal when speed, cost and efficiency are paramount
  • Platform height adjustment guarantees a comfortable working level
  • Service includes site surveys, expert assistance through planning and tendering, professional installation, operator training and quality service and maintenance throughout the contract
  • Latest and most up to date mast climber designs provide high level of safety features as well as flexibility
  • Highly experienced team spanning over 30 years within the mast climber industry
