    Need of Hoist

    A unique feature of this bridge is that it has two towers which stand at the height of 86 meters. It is significant that such huge structures need proper maintenance with occasional lifting in order to let vessels pass through. Having towers at such heights, it is highly inefficient to climb the stairs every time maintenance work is conducted.

gustave flaubert bridge front

A bridge is a structure which provides passage over physical obstacles. Bridges can be of many types like beam bridges, moveable, cable-stayed, etc. Like any other large structure, bridges need maintenance as well to sustain for longer periods. The level of difficulty of maintenance increases with large moveable bridges where the tower height could exceed 100 m. There are many ways to access the bridges for maintenance. One efficient way which Scanclimber offers is to install their hoist. This could either be installed inside or outside the tower depending on different conditions like requirement of maintenance, available installation space, etc.

Bridge installation

The installation of hoist inside bridge tower is challenging. This is because the spaces inside tower are narrow and can be at certain angles, so the carriageways are not always vertically straight. Scanclimber offers a range of mast and anchoring solutions which are highly flexible and customized according to the requirements of the sites. Range of suitable hoists vary based on,

  • Cage dimensions
  • Payload capacity (300-3200 kg)
  • Space available at site (where hoist needs to be installed)
