A transport platform is used to move workers safely up and down the outside of a building under construction.

Transport platforms (TPMs) are an essential tool of the trade for any construction project or job site. They enable the safe and efficient movement of materials and workers between floors. 

At Scaffolding Solutions, we’ll provide you with a reliable transport platform designed to solve your toughest material and personnel moving challenges.

About Transport Platforms

Transport platforms, or TPMs as they’re commonly known, can move men and materials at speeds of up to 39 feet per minute. They’re governed by ANSI A92 and require a dedicated operator. The call box is located inside the car so the operator can start and stop it.

When setting up a transport platform, they need to be installed 18 inches from the building to ensure nobody could be injured by the car while it’s moving.

Transport platforms can move many different things, such as:

  • Debris or trash
  • Construction supplies
  • People
  • Cars
  • Equipment

Advantages of Transport Platforms

Transport platforms are much faster than a forklift or stairs and are ideal for buildings up to ten stories high. You can also move both people and materials—versus a material hoist that only allows the movement of materials.

Safety is another important benefit of using a transport platform. Brand-name TPMs, such as Alikak, Fraco, and GEDA have built-in features that help to ensure safe and reliable operation.

Customer Testimonials

The team at Scaffold Solutions really got me out of a bind this past week. Set-up scaffold on Saturday morning and came back Sunday morning to take it back down. Communication was great, speed and safety were excellent and price was fair. I appreciate the solid communication and follow-up from their team and they did a great job helping me get the steel installed in the elevator shaft. Thank you!

I recently had my fourth floor loft terrace enclosed. Scaffolding Solutions, LLC is the only choice you need to ensure your project is successful! Frank Giuliano visited my home and assessed the area, then coordinated with the Patio Enclosure installation manager to build a custom design that was efficient for the project. Frank’s customer service was remarkable. He constantly communicated updates and I felt very comfortable contacting him with any questions. The scaffolding crew only took one day to assemble and disassemble the scaffold without incident. They were pleasant, professional and respectful of my property. Hands down this was the best experience and I definitely recommend Scaffolding Solutions, LLC.
