Bespoke Access Platforms


What are bespoke access platforms?

Bespoke access platforms are access solutions which has been designed and manufactured for a specific task.


Bespoke access platforms capabilities

If our standard range of cradles and mast climbers don't meet your specific access requirements, at Apollo Cradles we have the capability to design, manufacture and install high quality bespoke access platforms.


At Apollo we specialise in providing ingenious solutions to difficult access requirements utilising the latest 3D CAD software to create accurate representations of the job and then tailor the access to it, producing drawings and calculations after full consultation with the client.


Our bespoke access platforms utilise the best elements of cradles, mast climbers, platforms, scaffolding and catenary wire systems, but we also have access to in-house manufacturing facilities and our own X-Beam system which is used with patented components not sold on the open market. With the X-Beam system we can produce access platforms of varying sizes and shapes for mobile suspended applications.


Apollo Cradles can supply bespoke access platforms nationwide, please contact us for further information.


In the meantime, please take a look at some of our previous projects below to see the full capabilities of bespoke access platform solutions provided by Apollo Cradles.
