From roof-mounted machines to rope access eyebolts, from monorails to travelling gantries, PTSG Cradle Installs is your one stop shop for façade access solutions.
Our knowledge base is second to none when it comes to façade access and fall protection, whether you require guidance on current legislation, British or European Standards or assistance on scheme design, we’re here to help.
From a simple ladder to the installation of a 30 tonne multistage telescopic building maintenance unit, we ensure that the same high levels of planning, safety and quality of installation are employed on each and every project.
All of our installation operatives and maintenance engineers hold a current CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) ensuring they have the health and safety knowledge to carry out the required tasks and these are complemented with further specific training such as abrasive wheels, cartridge tools, PASMA, IPAF and working at height.
During early design stages the provision for access and maintenance of the building must be considered.
Our team are on hand to assist you in planning for the correct type and nature of access and to guide you through the legislative requirements in making the selection of equipment.
PTSG Access and Safety utilises in-house design and also that of our supply chain to provide robust, safe, aesthetic and economic solutions to all your façade access and fall protection requirements.
Designing to the latest British and European Standards ensures all of our equipment meets the stringent requirements for safety and functionality and gives duty holders and users confidence in maintaining and using the equipment.
Ageing and poorly maintained suspended access equipment poses a large risk to both the user of the equipment and the duty holder and as a result more expensive and laborious methods are employed such as the hiring in of cherry pickers or scaffold access and the associated road closures and local authority permits.
Many suspended access systems still in use are beyond their intended design life, are of basic construction and likely to be way behind the high requirements placed on manufacturers of new equipment today.
PTSG Access and Safety is able to carry out an in depth survey and recommend a ‘new for old’ proposal including any necessary track upgrades and all the necessary logistical requirements such as a mobile crane to carry out the installation of new user-friendly systems and disposal of the existing equipment.
Once the system is installed, it will be fully tested and commissioned prior to handover. An overview in the safe use and operation of the equipment will be given by our engineers.
Ageing and poorly maintained suspended access equipment poses a large risk to the user of the equipment and that of the duty holder. Our condition survey will highlight any necessary improvements required to provide peace of mind.
Leasing offers several advantages not available with ownership. It encourages more orderly planned equipment replacement before maintenance costs become excessive.
Leasing provides a method of obtaining efficient cost-saving equipment which cannot be purchased with fixed operating budgets. As a rule, it is usually easier to gain approval for equipment under a lease program than as a capital expenditure.
A properly structured lease can provide many financial advantages to the lessee. It can free working capital for other investments whilst not affecting the customer’s borrowing power or credit line. Lease payments may also provide a tax deductible business expense, reducing tax liabilities.
The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) target is to reduce the number of fatal and major injuries due to falls from height.
