Experience of using Scanclimber SC5000 mast climbers at 250 ft condominium restoration project

Suspended platforms offer several advantages that make them particularly valuable in construction, maintenance, and repair industries, especially when working on high-rise buildings. Here are some of the key benefits:
1. **Accessibility**: Suspended platforms provide access to high and hard-to-reach areas without the need for constructing permanent structures such as scaffolding. This is particularly useful for tasks like window cleaning, exterior painting, and facade repairs on tall buildings.
2. **Cost-Effectiveness**: Using a suspended platform can be more cost-effective than other methods such as erecting traditional scaffolding. It requires less material and labor to set up and dismantle, which can lead to significant savings, especially on large projects.
3. **Flexibility**: These platforms can be easily adjusted to different heights and positions, allowing workers to access various parts of a building's exterior quickly and efficiently. This adaptability makes them suitable for a wide range of tasks.
4. **Safety**: When properly used with safety harnesses and other protective gear, suspended platforms provide a secure work environment. They are designed with guardrails and other safety features to protect workers from falls.
5. **Efficiency**: Suspended platforms can be deployed and relocated relatively quickly, which helps reduce the overall time spent on projects. This efficiency can be crucial in minimizing disruption in urban environments or in commercial settings where time is of the essence.
6. **Minimal Impact on Building Structure**: Unlike some types of scaffolding, suspended platforms do not require anchoring into the building's facade, which can be beneficial for historic or delicate structures where minimal impact is desired.
Overall, suspended platforms are an indispensable tool in modern construction and maintenance, offering a blend of safety, efficiency, and flexibility that is hard to match with other access methods.

http://www.scanclimber.com - Max Sweeney from National Concrete Preservation Inc, was the project foreman at work site for renovation of Quadomain condominiums, apartment buildings in Hollywood Florida. He explains why they use several Scanclimber SC5000 mast climbers. He describes his experience of using Scanclimber mast climbing work platforms and compares use of mast climbing work platforms with traditional ‘swing stage’ method.

Quadomain condominiums were built in 1960’s by the coastline in Hollywood Florida. These 250 ft high rise apartment buildings required full concrete restoration work to pass ‘Required Building Safety Inspection’. The project was carried out using 5x Scanclimber SC5000 Maxus mast climbing work platforms.
