Industries we serve

Construction

Whether domestic, housing, industrial, extensions or commercial projects, we have the ability and materials to offer you the most suitable access solution for all new build work. Email your specification for pricing or telephone us to make an appointment for us to visit you and discuss your requirements. If necessary we can help create a specification tailored to your project.

Refurbishment

We have undertaken many projects working closely with the main contractor, architect or structural engineer to provide access and support solutions for buildings under refurbishment. Our staff are trained to work carefully and sympathetically on historic and listed property.

Industrial

We have considerable experience working in industrial environments where the customer must maintain production. Whether refurbishment, maintenance or project work, we can provide access, bridging, support, lifting frames and protection scaffolds. Once established as your supplier, we can provide an unrivalled service for your breakdown cover.

Food & Drink

We have had long associations with some of the major companies in the food and drink industry and fully understand the quality of service required. Maintaining production, cleanliness and working to tight deadlines are often major factors. Shut downs for periodic maintenance require careful planning and we are usually involved at an early stage to ensure the project runs smoothly.

Education

We work extensively in both state and public schools, often directly through their estates office, their appointed builder, architect or health & safety advisor. Out of hours working, isolation of our working area and care taken during erection and dismantle are essential. Our employees are DBS checked for the protection of our clients and their pupils.

Fit Outs

The fast food and retail industries can only afford to shut down for the shortest time during refurbishment. We can match those tight schedules and work safely and efficiently to provide a successful outcome for you and your client.

Healthcare

Hospital work brings its own challenges. We offer a range of innovative access solutions that take into consideration the delicate nature of the patients and environment.

Emergency Response

With true 24 hour telephone access to our staff we can and do provide emergency response for access and support. We have even been called out on Christmas day when we prevented the front of a terraced property in Northampton collapsing into the street. There when you need us! Just part of the service.

Safety Netting

Our Manchester depot have considerable experience in providing safety netting and all operatives have received full FASET training in erecting and repairing safety netting, and all hold the appropriate CSCS cards.

Safety nets are the primary method of passive collective fall prevention for roofing in the construction industry.

Structural Support

When the worst happens count on us for support. We work with insurance companies, structural engineers and property owners to prevent matters getting worse. Holding roofs up, preventing walls from collapsing and supporting structures during refurbishment – all part of our work.

Stairways

Whether for site or public access, we can liaise with all interested parties to provide fire escapes, road crossings, or just access. Prefabricated stairways for public use can be completely adapted to suit your requirements.

Temporary Roofs

The design requirements for temporary roofs have changed considerably over recent years. Many temporary roofs we see are not erected to current design criteria. We offer a full design service to ensure compliance with current regulations.

Lifting Structures

We have had years of experience providing lifting frames in various industrial environments for machinery removal, repair, maintenance and new construction. All lifting structures are designed specifically for your unique requirements.

Tank Access - Internal & External

With confined space trained employees we are able to provide internal access as well as external access to tanks and in confined space environments.

Conservation

Our operatives are experienced in working on listed property and on general conservation projects. We have scaffolders who will work with extreme care, even in challenging situations, to ensure your and your client’s satisfaction.

Special Projects

The ones we look forward to. Anything that is unusual, difficult or taxes the ingenuity of our experienced staff. Let us in on your problem and we will enjoy trying to come up with a workable solution.

Accreditations

We are proud to be members of the NASC. We undergo their extensive audit procedure at regular intervals. We are assessed by SMAS, CHAS and SafeContractor.
