Safway Raises Bar with New Vertical Access Work Platform SafRise(TM) Climber

WAUKESHA, Wis. – Building on its reputation as a leader in smart access technology, Safway Group has introduced a new vertical access work platform, the SafRise™ Climber, setting a new industry standard for versatility, productivity and safety.

With input from Safway’s industry-leading research and engineering team, the design of the SafRise™ Climber reflects the company’s focus on customers’ priorities. “SafRise™ can ascend at 30 feet per minute bearing massive live loads – giving it the highest speed-to-capacity ratio on the market,” says Chad Baumgartner, the leader of Safway’s Motorized Division. “It offers single and twin-mast options, lifting adaptable modular platforms that can conform to curves and corners. The single mast set-up has live load capacities of 8,000 pounds and spans 50 feet, while the twin-mast version’s live load capacity is up to 13,000 pounds and spans 120 feet.”

Powered by common 240-volt, three-phase service, SafRise™ raises the bar not only in versatility and worker productivity, but also in terms of safety. “At the heart of the design of this system is a unique, controlled-descent-failsafe feature to ensure worker safety,” explains Baumgartner. “Other safety systems usually stop altogether – leaving crews and materials stuck. SafRise™ can safely lower the platform to the ground, even without power.

“The ability to quickly lift large equipment, a skilled team, and pallets of materials to optimum ergonomic working heights brings assembly-line-type productivity to large projects, and brings unprecedented agility to cumbersome multi-step jobs,” he continues.
Worksite access is often key to productivity. Being able to position people and very large loads quickly can be the margin of success for smart contractors. “At the same time, we recognize that if a work environment is not safe, nothing else matters,” Baumgartner adds, noting the system’s innovative descent failsafe feature and overall design integrity.
