3 TIER SELF CLIMBING

SAFETY PLATFORM



MFE 3 tier self climbing safety platform provides a safe and effective working environment that can be rapidly deployed and easily operated.

Three tier provides:

  • Upper working area with high safety barrier
  • Middle working & light storage area
  • Additional lower working area, or exterior protection mesh level only

Key advantages include

  • Suitable for shear wall concrete structures
  • Through wall or slab fixing method
  • Platform Jacking Time per unit → Less than 30 minutes
  • 1.8m high safety screen at the upper level
  • Totally enclosed lower level prevent falling objects from dropping to the ground.

MOUNTING OPTIONS

SLAB MOUNTING DETAIL

Simple installation of climbing shoe & rail

Hydraulic power pack & hoses

Hydraulic ram specification

Attaching the hydraulic ram for lifting

LIFTING THE PLATFORM

Repeated jacking process

  • Fix spare climbing shoe to upper platform anchor point & attach to climbing rail
  • Attach and engage the hydraulic ram to middle platform anchor
  • Lift platform 10 mm to release load on the lower climbing shoe
  • Detached lower climbing shoe from anchor
  • Lift platform to the next level in stages of 500mm up the climbing rail
    • The climbing shoe ratchet engages with the climbing rail at 500 mm intervals ensuring complete safety at each stage
    • Maximum drop in case of hydraulic failure limited to 499 mm by ratchet system
  • Repeat process to next level

CONCRETE STRENGTH NEEDED FOR PLATFORM LIFTING

The platform jacking sequence is allowed after the concrete has achieved 15 N/mm² strength

ALLOWABLE LOADING SPECIFICATIONS

Wind speed classification for the Beaufort Scale

Beaufort No. Description of Wind Observation Wind Speed
M/S MPH
5 Fresh Breeze Small trees in leaf begin to sway. Moderate waves, many white foam crests. 8.9 - 12.5 20 - 28
6 Strong Breeze Large branches in motion, whistling heard in telegraph wires. Some spray on the sea surface. 12.5 - 14.5 28 - 32
7 Moderate gale Whole trees in motion, inconvenience felt when walking into wind. Foam on waves blows on streaks. 14.5 - 20 32 - 44
8 Gale Twigs broken of trees, generally impeded progress. Long streaks on foam appear on sea. 20 - 22 44 - 50
9 Strong gale Straight structural damage, e.g. slates and chimney pots removed from the roofs. High waves, crest start to roll over. 22 - 28 50 - 62
10 Storm Trees uprooted, considerable structural damage. Exceptionally high waves, visibility affected. 28 - 31 62 - 70
11 Violent Storm Widespread damage 31 - 37 70 - 82
12 Hurricane Air is filled with spray and foam. > 37 > 82

ONE-SITEASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION

The platform will be delivered to site partly assembled, with final assembly & installation being carried out on-site.

On-site Assembly & Installation

  • Final assembly of each platform carried out on-site
  • Min. assembly area for three platforms, estimated 15 x 30 mtrs
  • Area access for delivery trucks and crane for unloading
  • Estimated 4 platforms per day assembled on-site and installed to building

Installation

  • MFE supervise & manage platform installation to building
  • Customer provides assistant supervisor and labour (on-job training carried out during installation of system)
  • Platform installation at typical floor level 2 and follows floor construction cycle for minimum disruption
