Transport platforms (TPMs) are an essential tool of the trade for any construction project or job site. They enable the safe and efficient movement of materials and workers between floors.
At Scaffolding Solutions, we’ll provide you with a reliable transport platform designed to solve your toughest material and personnel moving challenges.
About Transport Platforms
Transport platforms, or TPMs as they’re commonly known, can move men and materials at speeds of up to 39 feet per minute. They’re governed by ANSI A92 and require a dedicated operator. The call box is located inside the car so the operator can start and stop it.
When setting up a transport platform, they need to be installed 18 inches from the building to ensure nobody could be injured by the car while it’s moving.
Transport platforms can move many different things, such as:
- Debris or trash
- Construction supplies
Advantages of Transport Platforms
Transport platforms are much faster than a forklift or stairs and are ideal for buildings up to ten stories high. You can also move both people and materials—versus a material hoist that only allows the movement of materials.
Safety is another important benefit of using a transport platform. Brand-name TPMs, such as Alikak, Fraco, and GEDA have built-in features that help to ensure safe and reliable operation.
