Why Your Industrial Business Needs an Aluminium Ladderstage
In a construction and maintenance environment, the correct access equipment is required to enable workmen to work at heights safely and securely. This is because safety and peace of mind are not negotiable in the workplace. That is also why it is of the utmost importance to only invest in items of access equipment that are durable, easy to move, and will not suffer premature wear and tear due to the elements. Aluminium is an ideal material for such equipment.
An aluminium ladderstage is a must-have item of access equipment for any construction or maintenance business. Being able to work at various heights safely puts your business ahead of the competition. Of course, when buying access equipment, always make sure that your staff also wear the correct safety attire and accessories for added peace of mind. But why would you use a ladderstage and not just a regular ladder? Ladderstages provide secure walkways, complete with guardrails, for safe and convenient movement between two points or between various heights. These ladderstages are usually moved around on castors for easy mobility, but these are not just any standard castors; for safety, they must be brake-lock castors to immobilise the ladderstage. The platform of the ladderstage saves the worker a great deal of time as there is no need to climb up and down the ladder while constantly moving it along. Over the course of a day, this can save the business a lot in terms of time and effort. Productivity levels can greatly increase when a ladderstage is use on the worksite.
The concept of a ladderstage is a simple one and shows in its functionally simplistic design. It is designed so that it is quick and easy to erect and break down. In fact, just one person should be able to do it with relative ease. The unit must also stow away fairly compactly, so that it can be transported and stored with ease. When buying a ladderstage, it is important to make sure that it is supplied with full assembly instructions. In addition, all of your staff members that will be using the ladderstage should be given a detailed demonstration on how to assemble and disassemble the unit and how to make appropriate and safe use of it on site.
At Caslad, we feature the aluminium ladderstage as part of our mobile ladders range. This mobile aluminium access platform is highly sought after for its versatility, durability, and strength. It offers excellent value for money, which makes it an excellent investment for your business. The platform itself is available in a 2-m length and you can easily adjust the height of the platform from the standard 1-m height to 1,9 m. With the correct setup, you can easily enable workers to work at heights of up to 4 m with safety and confidence. The total height of the unit we stock, when it is fully extended, is a useful 3,3 m. The base dimension of the ladderstage is 720 x 2150 mm.
As it is important to ensure that the ladderstage does not move while being used, the castor wheels must always be locked prior to ascending the unit. Once the castors are locked, the ladderstage is securely fixed in place. As with any access equipment, it is important to know what its load capacity is. This is to avoid potential injury or damage to property and equipment. Our aluminium ladderstage is designed to support the weight of two men and hand tools.
