What is a stairwell scaffold tower?
A stairwell scaffold tower is a tower that allows you to perform on-site installations and repair or decorating jobs safely and efficiently, even when the tower has to be placed on stairs. These towers provide secure access for any worker or employee to handle easy or demanding jobs on a fully stable platform. Having to work around stairwells is quite difficult and awkward when you’re using normal scaffold towers or ladders, but stairwell scaffold towers are specifically designed to give safe access over stairs.
Why choose a stairwell scaffold tower?
Many trade workers such as painters, construction workers, decorators, contractors, and maintenance workers need a stable platform with height advantage to minimise the risk of any slips and falls whilst on-site. Before carrying out work you should ask yourself these important questions:
- Do you have an integrated ladder system for easy and safe access?
- Is your ladder frame a stable working platform to use in stairwells?
- Can you guarantee safe stairwell access whilst complying with Health and Safety standards?
- Are your employees comfortable working at height on a steep staircase or stairwell?
If you answered “no” to at least one of the questions, a stairwell scaffold tower is the right choice for you. As well as affecting the safety of your employees, working at height on a steep staircase also impacts the productivity and overall quality of service your company provides. With this in mind, a stairwell scaffold tower can be of significant benefit to you and your business.
Benefits of a stairwell scaffold tower
Strength and durability
At BPS our stairwell scaffold towers boast an impressive 275kg weight rating per platform, which is stronger than many other competitors on the market. The aluminium construction also means our towers are highly durable, making it beneficial for workers in trade who will require heavy usage of their tower.
Our stairwell tower is only 760mm wide which would be odd for a normal scaffold tower, but for one designed specifically for narrow stairwells, landing areas, and other more compact spaces, it is ideal. Don’t worry, a narrower frame does not mean any compromises on safety or security as the stairwell scaffold tower comes with a non-slip platform with a self-closing trapdoor to maximise the climber’s stability and ensure they are completely protected.
Removable ladder section
Having a removable ladder section at the base of the tower not only adheres to the requirements of HSE and Pasma but also makes the tower easier to use in general.
