Clow Glassfibre Podium Platforms - a Toolstop Guide
Posted by Mark Hunter - August 05, 2013
Glassfibre is a fantastic material to make access equipment with. For starters, it's known for its durability and strength, two key features for any bit of kit that you want to support your weight while you work at height.
But if you're working in an environment that requires - perhaps by law - that you use non-conductive equipment, then glassfibre should be at the top of your spec list when shopping for new access equipment.
We're delighted to bring you the Clow Glassfibre Podium Platform, click the link to buy.
As the name suggests it's manfuctured from glassfibre. And as the name suggests, you're buying a product from a name you can trust. Clow have been manufacturing high quality glassfibre equipement for over 40 years. Clow supplies London Underground, for example, with its access gear. So, it's a name you can trust.
What about the spec and features of the Clow Glassfibre Podium Platform, and how easy is it to set up and use?
As already mentioned, this plaform is constructed of glassfibre, including the steps and non-slip platform.
The frame itself folds into a compact size, allowing you to quickly and easily transport it, even through narrow doorways.
It features non-slip feet on the extension arms, plus a couple of wheels to make moving it about even easier.
We've got two models for you to choose from:
||Height to Platform
||Width of Frame
What about setting these platforms up?
We asked Clow to give us a demo and, quite frankly, we couldn't believe how simple - foolproof even? - it is!
There are 6 steps:
- open the unit out to full-width
- lock the catch
- fit the main platform
- fit the top step first, then the bottom step; these just drop into place
- deploy the stabilisers
- the platform is ready to use
So, who should add a Clow Glassfibre Podium Platform to their shopping cart? Check out our list:
- anyone who needs 360º working access
- anyone who works in or around electricity, such as in sub-stations
- anyone who works in the food industry or where hygene is an issue; glassfibre is easily de-contaminated
- as above, anyone working in hospitals
- anyone changing lots of bulbs!
