About Us

What is A Mast Climber?

Mast climbers are mechanical motorised platforms attached to masts, designed to travel vertically on the outside of buildings. These highly versatile and effective alternatives to scaffolding, also known as mast climbing work platforms or MCWPs, are suitable for a wide range of construction and refurbishment projects. In fact, approximately 85% of all construction projects could benefit from the advantages offered by mast climbers. 

  • New build projects (e.g. Brickwork)  
  • Recladding projects 
  • Maintenance and repair work 
  • Round corners and curved facades
