VIDEO: Everything you need to know about mast climbing and MCWPs

Are you new to the idea of mast climbing as opposed to scaffolding when it comes to accessing a building facade?

The traditional method of accessing a high-rise building for re-cladding, brickwork and maintenance was through expensive and labour-intensive scaffolding, but there is a better way.

Our video will demonstrate why mast climbing is a safer, quicker and better alternative to scaffolding.

Our Fleet

At BFT Mast Climbing, we are proud of the safe, quick and resources-light way that our mast climbers can help project leaders gain access to a building facade, including curved ones. They can securely hold personnel and loads of up to five tonnes, which helps to reduce the need for manual handling and helps protect subcontractors and staff while they are at work on your project.

All productivity benefits will make a big difference to the speed, safety and profitability of nearly any project that we work on, so what have you got to lose? With nearly 2000 mast climbers that we own ourselves we have the largest and newest fleet of MCWPs in the UK and we are capable of supporting hundreds of projects across the country simultaneously.
