The SC8 Transport Platform is a highly efficient single mast personnel and material hoist, designed to streamline the vertical transportation of workers, materials, and equipment at construction sites.

It features a compact platform measuring 1.4 x 1.7 meters and can safely carry up to 5 persons or 500 kg in one trip. This capability significantly reduces the time and effort required compared to traditional scaffolding or other lifting methods.

The SC8 Transport Platform offers an effective solution for improving site safety and operational efficiency, making it an ideal choice for modern construction environments where speed, safety, and versatility are paramount.

Key Features

Versatile Use

Capable of transporting both personnel and materials, eliminating the need for separate hoists.

Enhanced Safety

Provides a safer alternative to climbing scaffolding, particularly when accessing higher floors.

Easy Installation and Dismantling

Quick to set up and take down without the need for a separate foundation.

Lightweight yet Sturdy Frame

The frame is designed to be both light and robust, replacing the ground station of conventional hoists and making the SC8 easier to move and install around the site.tions
