Bricking Solutions’ new Rolling Work Platform increases productivity
Bricking Solutions, a provider of refractory installation equipment, has introduced a new Rolling Work Platform for improved safety and efficiency during operation. The platform offers 25 percent increased productivity over traditional rolling scaffolds and features a durable, custom-engineered design. It is used in a variety of applications including water treatment, tunneling and mining.
“The drive for enhanced safety and efficiency influences every Bricking Solutions innovation,” Heather Harding, Bricking Solutions managing director, said in a statement. “When a customer came to us looking for an innovative solution to increase productivity and uptime when servicing long stretches of pipe, we went straight to the drawing board to create the tool they needed.”
The result was the Rolling Work Platform, which uses a modular design and pin-together construction developed for the EZ Flexx50 Bricking Machine and EZ Lift Suspended Platform. Coupled with a hydraulic jack system, the Rolling Work Platform is erected in as little as 30 minutes and adjusts to maintain a level working surface in less than 20 minutes – even on an incline. Traditional rolling scaffolds allow similar modifications, but only by dismantling and rebuilding the structure to account for incline. This process can take over an hour each time and requires crews to keep proper tools on hand, taking up valuable scaffold space.
The Rolling Work Platform is manufactured using high-strength 6061-T6 aluminum which offers the same strength as steel at a third of the weight, making it lighter and easier to maneuver than traditional scaffolding systems. Four-inch swivel caster wheels further increase mobility on flat or rounded surfaces, such as those found in tunnels and pipes. The structure comes standard at 3.5 meters long (11 foot, 4 inches) but can be customized up to 5 meters (16 feet) to fit a variety of applications. With a capacity of up to 2,000 pounds, the Rolling Work Platform can easily support a three-person crew and all required materials.
