Fibreglass Scaffolding Systems

A bespoke range of fibreglass access systems and platforms. Fibreglass is lightweight, strong, non-conductive, and spark/chemical resistant making it perfect for DNOs, rail, offshore, and conservation sites.

Manufactured and tested to 100kV per foot, the unique non-conductive properties of the fibreglass system offer a safer means of access when working in an electrical environment and particularly helps to overcome the problems associated with long lengths of aluminium being erected in sub-stations. Zone 1 fibreglass towers are widely used by the Industry as a platform for hot stick working for live maintenance of overhead power lines.

With the implementation of the Construction (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations, a priority within the Electricity Supply Industry, many of the inherent difficulties when working at height in sub-stations can be resolved with the use of fibreglass access systems. Available as standard towers with working platform heights from 6’ to 30’, we also offer custom made scaffolding designed for your requirements to overcome difficult access areas.
