Obstacle solution from Boss
By Euan Youdale03 April 2017
Boss has launched a new range of configured access equipment, designed to make working over obstacles easier and safer.
Manufactured using high-grade construction aluminium, the BoSS End-Linked Tower is suitable for working across obstacles such as buildings and large machinery. The End-Linked Tower can be used to provide a large continuous working area by joining two BoSS access towers with the use of a new Step-Through Ladder Frame. With a 3.2m fixed deck, the uninterrupted area provides a bigger working platform with minimum components.
Designed for overcoming obstacles such as porches, garages or stairways, the Boss Extended-End Cantilever frame system can be used to convert a double width access tower, providing an additional platform area of up to 1.8m.
Both systems are lightweight to allow easier handling and feature a step through frame that provides a multi-level walk through structure. Sturdy stabilisers with interlocking clips improve the overall stability of the towers and a new plan brace ensures a rigid structure for improved performance. Colour coded Bossclaws ensure braces are easily identifiable when working on site and a link brace system on the Extended-End Cantilever also prevents frame separation for added safety.
The End-Linked Tower has a load capacity of up to 275kg per platform level and the expansive deck area can be erected at varying heights allowing for several people to work at once. The BossExtended-End Cantilever has a platform height up to 6.2m providing a working height of 8.2m. Both systems come with an integrated ladder with anti slip rungs.
Both configured towers conform to BS1139-6, which is the British standard for towers that fall outside EN1004 but utilise the same components to build more complex structures.
