Mechanical access | Powered work platforms & cradles

Mechanical and powered access is a key element within the Harsco Infrastructure product range. Mast Climbing Work Platforms (MASTCLIMBERS™), personnel and material transport hoists, suspended access platform cradles and Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) can all offer specific advantages over more traditional access systems for projects of all types.

Our design teams will work with you to devise an access arrangement that is practical, cost-effective and highly efficient, drawing from our entire range of powered and non-powered access systems.

Transported directly to the ideal working height

The powered MASTCLIMBERS, hoists, suspended cradles and aerial work platforms are quick to set-up or install and allow personnel, tools and materials to be transported quickly to the ideal working level. They create minimal obstruction above or below the access platform and leave the work face clear for other operations.

Overcoming any construction & industrial access challenge

Our mechanical systems have been employed on some of the most challenging construction and industrial access projects. It is here that our designers’ skills and experience are most clearly demonstrated:

  • Irregular building profiles
  • Inclined elevations
  • Overhangs and confined spaces
  • Obstructions or restrictions at ground level
  • Complex industrial plant
  • Specialist applications such as shipbuilding, glass installation and electricity line crossings
