Providing Big Lift to the Telecom Industry
At The Crane Guys’, personnel platforms provide worker safety to a variety of industries. One of the most common is telecom, whose cell towers rise from heights of 50’ all the way up to 200’. When a tower needs a repair or upgrade, personnel platforms are indispensable for getting work crews safely into the right position.
Of major use to the telecom industry is the suspended personnel platform (or hanging man basket). Attached to a crane by a set of chains, suspended personnel platforms can be guided into precise positions impossible to reach with fixed platforms. For telecom repair and installation crews, hanging man baskets provide the maneuverability needed to reach even the tightest spots. While telecom makes frequent use of suspended personnel platforms, many other industries also utilize these baskets for a variety of jobs.
For more basic lifts, The Crane Guys provides a comprehensive selection of fixed personnel platforms. These baskets are connected to the tip of crane, which hoists them to the desired level without much maneuvering.
Whether you call them personnel platforms or man baskets, these indispensable components definitely give work crews the right lift, no matter how far they must travel.
