The Scanclimber Double-Decker expansion transforms the standard Mast Climbing Work Platform to a dynamically aligning platform that makes it easier and quicker to perform surface work on rounded, curved and arched surfaces. It moves up and down naturally, like any other platform but it also moves horizontally in two levels, with several outreaching decks. Not a standard product.
The SC Double-Decker is a unique platform with two working levels fixed one on top of the other. Both platform levels consist of one to many independent and horizontal, back and forth sliding platform decks (modules). The number of decks is a dynamic factory option; this implies that the customer can decide the number of moving decks before ordering the product.
The Double-Decker platform is well suited for work on different types of 3 dimensional complex surfaces, like in construction and shipbuilding or similar industries where there is a need to work on facades or high horizontal surfaces with protruding obstructions
The upper deck level is 2,1 m above the lower deck. The lower level platform decks can slide 2,0 m outwards from the standard platform and the upper level deck modules can move 36 cm outwards and 1,0 m inwards compared to the movement of the lower level decks. Without moving the platform, the maximum horizontal surface overhang can be 2.2 meters on one side.
The movement of the lower level platform modules is controlled by an electronic drive unit using the pendant remote control. There is a separate motor for every deck module. The upper level platform modules are moved manually by a wrench.
The width of the deck modules on both platform levels can be manufactured according to customer need from 1.6 meters to the entire length of the platform. The number of decks is typically considered to vary between 2 to 6 decks per platform. The Double-Decker expansion is available on Scanclimber’s MCWP model SC8000. The MCWP can be installed in one position and moved both vertically and horizontally during the work process.
This is not a standard product, it can be ordered customized for needs of the customer's.
