Scanclimber twin SC1432 used as shaft hoist in construction of 90 m high residential building

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. - Espoon Niittyhuippu was a construction project of 26-storey residential building in Niittykumpu, a district in Espoo, Finland. The construction site was located right next to the main avenue which resulted in space constraints at the site. Once the basic structure of the building was standing, there was a need of a reliable and safe labor and material transportation medium. SRV was the main contractor of the project and Ramirent was to deliver a solution suitable to the requirement of the construction site. Ramirent selected Scanclimber Falcon SC1432 twin hoists for this project and delivered to the site.

Scanclimber hoist family offers different options in cage sizes, lifting speeds, payload capacities, landing gates, cage doors, and mast anchorings with various additional features. Some of the additional features include computer controlled landing system with pulse encoders, fault diagnostic system, overload detection, automatic hydraulic ramp and rack lubrication. Such features expand the hoist customization and application possibilities.
Scanclimber hoists are modular, robust, and reliable and ensure the highest safety standards making them a construction solution package.
