A swing stage is a 2 point suspended access platform which is typically supported by a free-standing counterweighted rostrum at the top. The platform has the ability to raise and lower to the required height by using a pair of electric traction hoists with flexible steel wire ropes running through the hoists.
With inherent advantages over other access methods such as scaffolding. Swing stages can add significant value through improved efficiency, reduced risk, and reduced project duration.
They provide a safe, fast and cost effective method of getting the right tradesman to the right point at the right time on your project whether it’s on a façade or within an industrial plant. They achieve this without the need to install a scaffold or tie to a building, and they minimise disturbance to the daily operations of your building or project.
Because swing stages require fewer parts than a scaffold designed to cover the same working area, swing stages are considerably faster to install and are generally a more cost effective option for certain tasks. Typical advantages include:
Typically swing stage platforms have one working level. This makes them suitable for building inspections, caulking, painting, building remedial repairs, cladding and glass and window replacement
Alphasafe have a strict maintenance regime with qualified service technicians at hand to provide support to all operators using the world famous Astro Traction hoists by Powerclimber.
Our maintenance and inspection programme exceeds the manufacturer and Australian Standards requirements giving all operators peace of mind when using one of our systems.
All servicing and inspection records are completed and recorded digitally and are available to every user at the start of the project.
