Railway works present a variety of unique requirements and challenges which are not present at the average site and nowhere is this more obvious than the London Underground. Long tunnels and necessarily limited maintenance time has resulted in the need for compact scaffold tower designs for tube ceiling access that could mount onto the rails for super-fast mobility around the network. Escalator banisters also demand a custom design specification to safely access the ceiling area above them.
Adaptability, experience and bespoke capability are essential for working in these unique environments and are further complicated by issues like live rails, the general public and the trains themselves! A few of our ideal railway access towers available for hire or purchase include;
- Full track and track-to-platform towers
- On-rail tube ceiling access towers
- Underground specific escalator access
- Safe access to trackside walls
- Non-conductive zone 1 fibreglass GRP towers
Flexibility around busy time constraints
To minimise potential disruptions,we provide Railtrack, LUL and other railway operators with out-of-hours and weekend services, guaranteeing an experienced team to deliver, assemble and dismantle our scaffold access tower platforms safely, professionally and on schedule.
