Suppliers of Class M1 Counterbalance Cast Iron Test Weights
The Bridgemaster 150 is a specially designed cantilever platform system for use with mobile access towers to provide access over and above structures, whilst retaining full all round edge protection.
The BSI tested system has a bespoke height adjustable guardrail that can be reduced from 1m to around half that height (600mm) to access restricted or recessed areas such as beneath bulkheads. It is particularly handy when attempting to access above wallside structures and installations that cannot be bridged either side.
Unlike other cantilever platforms, the supporting diagonal brace pole between the underside of the platform deck and mobile access tower has been designed out allowing the platform and tower to stand flush at 90 degrees against the object structure.
The Bridgemaster150 system is suitable for use with both single as well as double width mobile access towers.
Unlike more cumbersome two tower bridging scaffolds, the Bridgemaster150 is compact, quick and easy to assemble and can be manoeuvred without dismantling.
Our system is compatible with Boss Standard, Clima, Evolution, Eiger 500 and most other modern mobile access tower systems with side frame rung spacing’s of 250 and 500mm and platform widths of 1800mm and 2500mm.
The addition of our space saving slim-line counterweight frame deck attached to the back of the mobile access tower allows the operative to work above fragile or unstable structures on a suspended platform without placing any pressure on the surface below.
Positioning the weights behind the mobile access tower rather than within the tower framework itself vastly reduces the counterbalance weight requirement to 270Kg's based on a platform Safe Working Load of 150Kg's, whilst providing additional stability to the overall structure and saving cost on expensive weights (ballast).
SUPPORTED CANTILEVER PLATFORM
Alternatively, where the surface below is sufficiently robust to take the weight, the system can be operated independently as a supported platform through the use of extendable foot supports on the cantilever frame, spreading the working load evenly.
A pivoting base plate allows the extending feet to lay flat against angled structures such as a pitched roof.
