Suspended Scaffolding

These scaffolding systems are specifically designed to be suspended from an overhead structure, providing access to areas that traditional ground-supported scaffolds cannot reach. These versatile systems are commonly used on tall buildings, bridges, and other structures where a platform needs to be suspended for work on the exterior facade, underside, or other areas inaccessible from the ground.

The foundation of a suspended scaffold system, these components provide the secure and stable overhead structure from which the work platforms will hang. Support systems and roof rigging require careful design and installation to ensure safety and load-bearing capacity.

Rolling Dolly System
A rolling dolly system involves beams, trusses, or outriggers mounted on wheeled dollies, allowing the entire support structure to be moved laterally along a roof or parapet. This offers significant flexibility for positioning the suspended platform along the length of a building facade, providing workers access to different areas without extensive disassembly and reassembly of the system.
Pigeon Hole Bracket
This specialized bracket is designed to provide a secure attachment point for the support structure on a sloped roof. Pigeon hole brackets feature adjustable angles to match the roof pitch, ensuring a stable connection point without requiring drilling or other penetrating fasteners that could compromise the roof membrane.
Parapet Clamp
Parapet clamps grip the edge of a roof parapet to secure the support system, offering a non-invasive option for anchoring suspended scaffold systems on buildings with concrete or masonry parapets. These specialized clamps distribute the load effectively and feature protective pads to prevent damage to the top of the parapet wall.
Down & Under
A down and under configuration provides access to areas tucked under balconies, overhangs, or other architectural features that would be difficult to reach with a standard vertical suspended platform.

Walk Thru Stirrup
The work surfaces used in a suspended scaffolding system, supported by cables, chains, or rigging from the overhead structure. Suspended platforms are designed with safety and stability in mind.
Suspended Platform
A general term for the work platform in a suspended scaffold system. Suspended platforms come in various lengths and configurations to suit different job requirements, ranging from modular components that can be expanded to multi-level platforms with specific attachments or accessories.
One Man Basket
A smaller, single-person work platform designed for individual use in suspended scaffolding applications. These baskets offer a compact and maneuverable solution for specific tasks, confined spaces, or situations where a larger platform is not required.
Walk Thru Stirrup
A specialized attachment that provides a safe and convenient transition point between a suspended platform and a fixed ladder or building egress. Walk-thru stirrups are often used when entering or exiting the platform from a building’s roof or access point.
Adjustable Wall Roller
Adjustable wall rollers offer protection to the building’s facade during the use of a suspended scaffold. These rollers are designed to move along with the platform and create a buffer between the structure and the wall, preventing damage and maintaining a safe working distance that won’t compromise workers’ access.
Wall Roller
These rollers serve as a protective buffer between the suspended platform and the building facade. They minimize friction and prevent scuffing of the wall surface.

Power Booster
A power booster increases the available voltage to the motor. This can be necessary when operating heavy-duty platforms or in situations where the available power supply is limited.
Step Down Transformer
A step-down transformer reduces the incoming voltage to the level required by the hoist motor. This is important for safety and to prevent overloading of the motor, especially when working with different power sources or in temporary setups.

SAFETY EQUIPMENT
Critical components designed to prevent falls and ensure worker safety when using suspended scaffolding systems. Safety equipment used with suspended scaffolding must meet rigorous industry standards and be regularly inspected.
Safety Rope
A safety rope serves as an independent secondary safety line in case of failure in the primary suspension system. This rope is typically attached to a separate, secure anchor point from the main rigging.
Rope Grab
A rope grab is a mechanical device that clamps onto the safety rope and locks in place if a sudden fall occurs. This device arrests the fall and prevents the worker from hitting the ground or lower structures.
Hold Me Lifeline Anchor
HOLD-ME is the innovative solution for terminating lifelines without the hassle of tying knots. It’s the practical answer to meeting national safety standards and minimizing potential liabilities. Made in the USA, HOLD-ME adheres to ANSI Z-359.1, the American National Standards Institute’s stringent safety requirements for personal fall arrest systems, subsystems, and components.
Protect Me Device
With the PROTECT-ME Lifeline Insulator, you can affordably and effectively safeguard your lifelines and power cables from sharp or abrasive roof and parapet edges that can damage or even sever them. Even if the lines are already set up, the Velcro closure enables quick and easy installation.
Lanyard Shock Absorber Type
A shock-absorbing lanyard is a critical component of a personal fall arrest system. It connects the worker’s harness to the safety rope or anchor point and contains an energy-absorbing mechanism to reduce the shock forces transmitted to the worker’s body in the event of a fall.
Full Body Hardness
A full-body harness is a vital piece of safety equipment worn by workers on suspended platforms. These harnesses are designed to properly distribute the impact forces of a fall across the worker’s shoulders, thighs, and torso, preventing severe injury.
Retractable Life Line
A retractable lifeline (also known as a self-retracting lifeline or SRL) is a type of fall arrest system offering flexibility and freedom of movement. It reels out and retracts automatically as the worker moves, while locking instantly in the event of a fall.
