Why mastclimbing?

Projects Are Faster With A Mast Climber

Every year, mast climbers save businesses thousands of project hours compared to traditional scaffolding. And that extra efficiency translates to big savings - up to 30-40% - on your bottom line.

  • Faster to erect and dismantle. Putting up MCWPs is up to 80% faster than traditional systems. Work with us and in just one day you can erect up to 40m more than scaffolding.

  • Faster movement of loads. MCWPs can securely carry loads of up to 5000kg at speeds of up to 10m/min, significantly reducing lead times.

  • Less adaptation work. Because MCWPs can be driven at the exact height of work, 99% of projects report no adaptation time.

  • Faster delivery and removal. MCWPs require little or no specialist transportation. This efficiency means more time working and less time getting to and from your site.

Efficiency in practice

Take two identical blocks of flats, measuring 21m x 10m on plan. Both are 40m high and require window replacement and concrete repair.

Block A is accessed by BFT mastclimbing platforms while Block B is accessed via traditional scaffolding.

Block A - with BFTBlock B - with scaffolding
Time to erect and dismantle access to all elevations12 days / 2.4 weeks

75 days / 15 weeks

5 days = 1 working week

To put this in context, BFT could provide fully functioning MCWP's for 7 tower blocks in the same time that it would take traditional scaffolding to complete just 1 tower block.

For more proof of how BFT can save your project thousands of hours, look at our recent case studies.
