HAKI Universal is unbeatable for building birdcage scaffolds, for high level access.
Birdcage scaffolds are typically used in buildings where access is required, at high levels, for example ceilings. The birdcage is an independent scaffold consisting of more than two rows of standards in both directions connected by ledger beams at every lift height. The top lift is decked to form the access platform for work.
Safe system of work
The HAKI Advanced Guard Rail (AGR) offers a totally safe system of work, meaning independent scaffolds and other structures can be erected using collective measures in accordance with the NASC SG4:15. Using the AGR tool, a permanent guard rail can be erected before decking out a bay on a subsequent lift.
Board supports can also be positioned anywhere on the scaffolding structure, so a close, flush boarded platform is possible. This also contributes to reducing the danger of trips and falls.
Reduce costs through speed and adaptability
Unique to Universal system is the HAKI Ledger Beam. Load-bearing connections can be made horizontally and vertically anywhere along its length, and combined with the HAKI Universal Beam Rider, returns and in-fills can be created at any point, as well as allowing ‘fly past’ at corners. This results in maximized bay lengths up to 3.05m, which reduces erection times and installation costs.
Project case study: Waterloo Station, London
HAKI Universal was used for birdcage structures at Waterloo Station, London, while significant upgrades were made.
The solution was selected by Wessex Capacity Alliance due to enhanced safety features and enabled part of the temporary works programme to be shortened from 16 weeks to just 3 weeks.
