Custom height-access systems, essential to secure maintenance operations
Whether corrective or preventive, every building requires maintenance of its heating, plumbing, or air-conditioning systems. To perform this type of work safely and prevent falls from heights, it is essential to have adequate and appropriate equipment.
This includes temporary equipment such as stepladders, scaffolding, and ladders, as well as permanent solutions like roof-mounted caged ladders, guardrails, and walkways.
Of course, all this equipment must be regularly inspected and properly used by skilled professionals. It must also comply with current standards and regulations.
Which custom access equipment best suits your maintenance operations?
For heating, plumbing, or air-conditioning maintenance, you will need different types of equipment for working at heights. For example, you will require temporary height-access equipment such as ladders, as well as crossovers and walkways. The roof of the building must be easily and quickly accessible, which is why opting for fixed, caged ladders is recommended.
In addition to this type of equipment, these maintenance operations require practical lifting solutions for working comfortably at heights. At Echelle Canada, for example, we offer lightweight and sturdy manual or self-propelled aerial work platforms. These platforms allow you to safely carry out all your maintenance work at heights of up to 3.5 meters. You will also need an appropriate lifting device, like our Super Hoist, to easily transport heavy equipment like boilers or air conditioning units..
To perform this maintenance work safely and avoid falls from heights, collective and individual protective equipment is also essential. Fixed equipment includes lifelines, anchors, and permanent guardrails. As for personal protective equipment (PPE), harnesses, lanyards, carabiners, and helmets are indispensable for working safely at heights.
