Suspended platforms allow your work crews to safely and quickly get to the correct elevation when cleaning windows. Suspended scaffolding is ideal for lightweight applications where variable heights are required, including window washing.
At Scaffolding Solutions, we’ll provide you with a safe and durable suspended scaffolding system for your needs.
About Suspended Platform Scaffolding
High-rise window cleaning platforms allow window washers to safely and efficiently perform their job in areas a traditional scaffold cannot. While each office building window cleaning system is slightly different, they all consist of the following:
- A working platform that’s wide and long enough for workers to safely perform their job and store their window-washing equipment
- Hoist motor
- Heavy-duty wires that raise and lower the aerial work platform
- Multiple safety features
Choosing the proper window-washing scaffolding will help to ensure increased productivity and improved worker morale. The motor and other components should allow for quick, easy, and thorough maintenance.
Advantages of Window Washing Platforms
Using window cleaning platforms offer many distinct advantages over a rigid scaffolding system:
- Allows workers to perform their jobs more efficiently
- Multiple redundant safety features built-in
- Able to move location more easily than other types of scaffolding
- Easily maintainable
Safe Window Washing at Height
When your crews are working at height, safety is of utmost concern. That’s why we offer only the highest quality products and the most secure scaffolding systems.
When choosing the right scaffolding for your window washing needs, keep the following priorities in mind.
Length of platforms needed
If you need wider platforms to reach each floor, you’ll need to ensure they’re configured to handle the length required. For instance, the Altrex platforms we offer are rated for different lengths depending on the stirrups used and the chosen model.
All components used in your scaffolding system must be rated for the weights you’ll be transporting. Window washing typically doesn’t involve massive loads like construction or heavy industrial applications. However, you still need to ensure your hoists, anchors, and platforms can withstand the weight of your personnel and equipment.
Additional safety features, such as railings, emergency stopping mechanisms, and fall arrest systems, are necessary when working at height. The best modern swing stage scaffolding components come equipped with superior safety features that allow your crew to feel as secure as possible.
