Corner Sections & Work Cages: Vital Components of Suspended Scaffolds
Corner Sections and Work Cages are the vital components of suspending scaffolds.
Corner sections make a swing stage scaffold extremely adaptable by allowing workers to assemble their platform in various configurations.
#1 Fixed Corner Section
It is an l-shaped platform that is ideal for working on the corners of a high-rise building or structure. It is available in four angles: 30, 45, 60, and 90 degrees. And it is supplied with guard rails for maximum safety. It can support a weight of up to 250 kgs, which is roughly equal to the weight of two personnel and some light working material.
#2 Adjustable Corner Section
These are much more flexible as compared to the fixed corner sections, as they allow configuration in many different angles ranging from 20 to 90 degrees. Like the fixed corner sections, they can also support a weight of up to 25 kgs.
Work cages, also known as a Bosun Chair, resemble a regular cage, except there are humans inside it who engage in tasks related to construction and maintenance of high-rise structures. A work cage can normally support a weight of up to 1000 lbs. It allows access through confined spaces and is ideal for one or two-man jobs.
Tractel and Sky Climber offer work cages resting on wheels so it is easy to transport from truck to site and back again. Power Climber offers a collapsible work cage that can fit through an 18-inch opening. It is a light-weight cage that can be easily disassembled/collapsed without the use of any tools. That is simply incredible.
