Introduction

SafeStand® is a new system of access and working platforms developed as a response to the inadequacies of “bandstand” and trestle systems. Scaffold systems can add to project costs and programme and require added coordination of the interface with end users.

SafeStand Being Used for Roofworks

The SafeStand® System is simple to use, easy to transport and provides a safe, stable working platform that can carry loads of 1,000Kg (one tonne) per stand. Internal and external handrails together with access arrangements ensure compliance with the “Working at Height Regulations 2005”.  Three different sized systems are available to provide platform heights ranging from 500mm to 2210mm; allowing blockwalls to be built to a height of four metres.

The simplicity of erection means that a twelve metre length can be erected in 15 minutes. Although developed for brickwork, it has been successfully used by many other construction, building services and finishing trades.

A safe working platform enables the workforce to work more efficiently and deliver higher quality of finished work.

SafeStand® Ltd provides nationwide coverage and can guarantee a 48 hour delivery service (when required).

All ancillary equipment supplied by SafeStand® Ltd compliments the high quality standards required of SafeStand® Access Systems e.g. Scaffold Boards are “Kitemarked” 1.5m span Boards.

Whilst ladders are currently the norm in terms of accessing the working platform, SafeStand® have developed their own unique staircase system for use with the 1200 system.

A key component of SafeStand® Equipment is the anti-flip bracket which allows the platform to be formed around corners and negates the need for overlapping of scaffold boards. In addition self closing gates are available which operate using a gravity swing hinge.
