Alimak launches safe scaffold transport system
By Euan Youdale10 November 2021
Alimak Group has launched a new scaffolding transportation system in partnership with Peri, designed to improve safety and efficiency on construction sites.
The Alimak STS 300 Scaffold Transportation System provides scaffolders with, “more productive erection and dismantling time”, as well as better ergonomics, and it also supports horizontal movement on ground level.
It is designed to fit the Peri UP scaffold, which secures scaffolders so that they are always in a guarded position when installing or dismantling scaffold.
As Alimak states, lifting tools can negatively impact the safe position of scaffolders, without the Alimak STS 300.
“We are continuously focusing on adding customer value and are very pleased to be able to launch this new scaffolding product, which will not only improve productivity and efficiency for our customers, but also provide a safer, smoother and an overall better scaffolding working environment for scaffolders, “said David Batson, executive vice president for the Construction division at Alimak Group.
Thomas Imbacher, a board member for innovation and marketing at Peri, added, “We are very pleased to have this partnership with Alimak Group. The Alimak STS 300 will enable scaffolders to improve their entire logistic process, starting from the warehouse towards the jobsite and backwards. Due to the innovative approach, waiting times decrease and it is easy to assemble and dismantle scaffolding with a team of two scaffolders.”
Initially, the Alimak STS 300 will only be available in Germany but will gradually be rolled out to more markets, globally.
