Bespoke Access Platforms

Looking for a safe and compliant way to access a difficult area for working at height? HLS offers a bespoke platform design service for equipment to circumvent obstacles to access, or for areas in which off-the-shelf equipment cannot be used for whatever reason.

Bespoke access platforms are a solution to working at height situations for which standard equipment is not suitable. Examples of environments in which bespoke platforms are helpful are in manufacturing where equipment has to fit around fixed production equipment, in plant rooms where access equipment can’t foul with fixed plant, or in any other challenging environment where traditional equipment isn’t suitable. We are able to design solutions to provide both upward and outward reach, for various tasks, equipment can be manufactured in aluminium, GRP (fibreglass), or stainless steel depending on the specific application.

(Can’t see what you’re looking for? For more information on other work at height solutions we supply, see our product range.)

 

Why would I need a bespoke access platform, or custom built scaffold tower?

Bespoke gantry for accessing manufacturing equipment

Bespoke platforms for manufacturing

Manufacturers often need to access areas above ground-level fixed objects such as plant, conveyors, gantries etc. Often floor layouts evolve and access becomes difficult to those areas. Often we can use a MEWP, or cherry picker such as the Star 10 to overcome these issues, but sometimes even small and highly versatile machines can't work in the space available. That's when bespoke access platforms can be helpful.

Fixed bespoke access platform for bus maintenance

Bespoke platforms for transport

Often specialist vehicle manufacturers, and those who maintain and service specialist vehicles, need to gain access to hard to reach points on the vehicles. While some powered access platforms can be modified to work around them, often the preference is to have a fixed platform from which operatives can work. We have supplied bespoke platforms for working on planes, trains, refuse trucks, and buses.
