Mast Climber Hire


Apollo Cradles supply mast climber work platforms for hire nationwide, throughout the UK.


What is a mast climber?

Mast climbers are powered access solutions consisting of an elevating work platform fixed to either single or twin vertical masts. The work platform travels up and down the mast(s) using an automated power unit (APU).


Mast climbers provide fast, efficient and affordable temporary access to a wide range of construction and maintenance work. Unlike conventional scaffolding, the entire platform moves with the workers, so the operator can spend more time on productive tasks.


Modular options

Mast climber work platforms are a modular steel construction, with platform lengths ranging from 2.8 - 13.4 metres for a single mast and 6.7 - 35.9 metres for a twin mast.


This flexibility enables Apollo Cradles to erect a safe and efficient work platform to match the length of the building facade being accessed. Mast climbers can work up to 9 metres high free standing, or travel up to 150 metres tied to a building with a maximum load capacity of 4550kg for a twin mast.


For more specialist applications, Apollo Cradles can provide mast climber solutions for working on angled facades of either 80, 100, or 110 degrees. Even at these angles the platforms maintain a level plane, giving a safe and practical working area.


Health and safety

As the latest in access technology, mast climbers are designed with the safety of workers on the platform and those in the vicinity in mind and have been proven to reduce the risk of injuries on site.


All mast climbers provided by Apollo Cradles are equipped with safety devices such as braking and fall arrest systems, limit switches and guard rails to ensure work areas are kept safe at all times.
