Scanclimber mast climbers with monorail lifting equipment at facade work at Hotel Stadt Lörrach

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. - Upon completion, Hotel Stadt Lörrach in south west Germany would be a 20-story building consisting 221 rooms. The major challenge in this construction project was the lack of operational space available on the construction site on main avenue. Scanclimber provided SC2032 construction hoists and total 8 SC4000 and SC5000 mast climbing work platforms which took less space and installation time as compared to scaffolding.

Additionally, Scanclimber delivered monorails which helped in lifting the heavy façade modules. These monorails were installed at the roof top of the building. The monorail was able to move along the top of each side helping to cover the whole façade, that enabled convenient handling of the heavy façade elements without tedious effort.
