Alloy Access Tower

An alloy access tower is a lightweight, mobile piece of equipment that can be used in most working conditions. Whether it is outside or indoors, this tool is a useful solution for general construction work. The alloy access tower can be assembled quickly and efficiently, perfect for a small or short term job. The tower is made up of strong metal scaffolding poles and wooden planks, that come in a variety of lengths for you to choose your ideal working platform, depending on what job you will be undertaking, an alloy access tower is easy to transport, set up and pack away. It is a key component within construction work or for DIY-enthusiasts. Charles Wilson Engineers Ltd has the variation of narrow or standard alloy access tower available for you to hire.

Staging Hand-Rail System

This type of access platform hire is used for people working at height and is a legal safety regulation to those who are working at height that is over 2 metres high. These handrails prevent accidents and falls from occurring and hold other tools and pieces of equipment safely and securely. We strongly advise that you always use handrails if you are working at height. Toe-board brackets are a requirement alongside scaffold toe-boards when working from height using a staging handrail system.

Stairwell access

Stairwell access platforms are specifically designed for stairways, providing a safe and secure form of access for you to work around. Perfect for painters, decorators, contractors and maintenance workers. The stairwell access platform is straight-forward and efficient to assemble, use and dismantle. They are supplied with everything you would require for your job, including a working platform, safety handrail, ladder access and safety toe-boards.

Razor Deck

The razor deck access platform is a self-erecting tower. A lightweight, yet powerful and sturdy, low-level work platform. This piece of equipment is a great tool to use for working at height, as it’s easy and efficient to operate, ultimately saving time and reduces manual labour. We also carry-out full safety assessments to help reduce the risk of injury. It can easily fit through a standard doorway and can be transported via a large estate car or van. It doesn’t hold any loose or fussy components to help assemble it. The self-powered, flat pack razor deck is effortless and runs smoothly from start to finish.
