Swing Stages

With 15 years experience in providing swing stage height access services throughout Australia, Aces Scaffolding Service and Th Alphasafe Group is a leading expert in the application of swing stage access.

 

WHAT IS A SWING STAGE?

A swing stage is a 2 point suspended access platform which is typically supported by a free-standing counterweighted rostrum at the top.  The platform has the ability to raise and lower to the required height by using a pair of electric traction hoists with flexible steel wire ropes running through the hoists.

 

ADVANTAGES OF USING SWING STAGES

With inherent advantages over other access methods such as scaffolding. Swing stages can add significant value through improved efficiency, reduced risk, and reduced project duration.

They provide a safe, fast and cost effective method of getting the right tradesman to the right point at the right time on your project whether it’s on a façade or within an industrial plant.  They achieve this without the need to install a scaffold or tie to a building, and they minimise disturbance to the daily operations of your building or project.

Because swing stages require fewer parts than a scaffold designed to cover the same working area, swing stages are considerably faster to install and are generally a more cost effective option for certain tasks.  Typical advantages include:

  • Reduced manual handling risks compared to scaffolding
  • Rapid installation times can aid project schedule
  • Reduced labour and transport costs compared to scaffolding
  • No tying to building required
  • Minimal disruption to other trades with the site 

 

APPLICATIONS FOR SWING STAGES

Typically swing stage platforms have one working level.  This makes them suitable for building inspections, caulking, painting, building remedial repairs, cladding and glass and window replacement
