Scaffold for power plants

The most widely used modular scaffold in North America, our Systems™ scaffold is a perfect scaffold for power plants and boilers because it can be used in virtually any space, no matter the dimensions. Systems scaffold is one of the most versatile scaffold products ever developed and was specially designed to meet the challenges of power plant and boiler work.

Proving is strength and reliability for power work, Systems has passed all seismic qualification tests of Class 1E equipment in May 2010 and is in full compliance with ANSI and IEEE standard 344-1987. The scaffold’s seismic test input was 10% greater than any other known seismic qualification test of scaffold in its class.

Unlike many other scaffold designs, Systems features a 7ft clearance between deck levels, allowing workers a safer, more convenient work area. Systems scaffold can have its horizontal and diagonal members individually removed and placed after erection, without affecting the integrity of the structure.

Suspended access systems for boilers

Safway’s QuikDeck® suspended access system is a modular platform system that is easy to install, safe for workers and more economical than traditional scaffolding or access solutions. QuikDeck can be assembled in the air from an access hatch or configured on a level surface and then hoisted or lowered into place. QuikDeck is used as an access solution in power plants and specifically boilers, all across North America.

QuikDeck is a perfect solution for boiler maintenance work and repairs because it successfully provides a deck above the bullnose, while allowing for work to take place below, resulting in shorter downtimes and reduced labour costs.

QuikDeck can also be used in conjunction with other Safway scaffolding, making access easier and more efficient. Because it can be quickly erected and dismantled, QuikDeck is great at targeting specific areas of power plants during outages or just for routine maintenance.

Wind turbine maintenance platforms

Safway has an exclusive, dedicated motorized division to contribute to your power project. When a simple inspection is in order, our suspended swing stages provide complete mobile wall access easily and efficiently.

In addition to our swing stages, our motorized division also offers mast climbers and material / personnel hoists.

The SafAscent™ turbine maintenance platform, one of Safway’s newest products, is designed specifically for wind turbines and enables unrestricted access to the tower and blades. The 6ft, 6in modular platform features three sets of padded roller systems that protect the tower and blades and has a weight capacity of 500lb.
