Upright Inventors Of Aluminum Scaffolding 24/04/2008
UpRight International specialize in aluminum scaffolding and walkway systems as well as aerial work platforms and self-propelled articulated booms. UpRight platforms is based in Ireland and is part of the global network of UpRight companies around the world. It was in California that UpRight invented aluminum scaffold 60 years ago and has since been manufacturing the lightweight aluminum walkways and scaffold towers. UpRight platforms are renowned for their standard and specialist scaffold designs that are manufactured for many diverse industries such as power generation, aviation, industrial and general rental.
UpRight platforms came across their remarkable invention when they perfected the virtually unbreakable cold-formed scaffold joint. This allows the aluminum to retain twice the strength as the joint is produced to avoid the negative aspects of welded scaffold. With normal scaffolding, the material is subject to fatigue and stress cracks, UpRight platforms overcame this with their patented cold-formed scaffold joint, making them virtually indestructible. UpRight platforms produce a full range of scaffold, including standard frame scaffold, stairway systems, snap-out tank scaffolds and many special system designs. UpRight also brand the scaffolding, making it an indeal investment for construction companies. The brand image and company colors can be used in the production of the scaffolding using a highly durable powder paint finish. Leading European multinational rental companies have opted for this choice which maximizes the companies profile.
The UpRight platform scaffold also specializes in lightweight access systems like communication towers and custom designs that can be used in power plant overhaul, aircraft maintenance and industrial and military access. The lightweight access walkways can also be fully engineered for various site conditions, many companies have had UpRight scaffold and walkway equipment in use for over 30 years. One of the most lightweight and versatile pieces of equipment is the Spandeck platform, this comes as a single bridging platform in varying lengths of up to 30ft and has a working capacity of 2t and weighs less than 90kg.
