ACCESS TOWERS

Access towers are a safe solution to meeting work at height regulations and protecting your workers. Not only are they safer, stair towers increase productivity on site by delivering quick and safe access.

Careful planning is required when providing safe access to roof level. PMC Stair Towers, erected by our competent trained riggers, are the HSE’s preferred option as they allow materials such as small components or tools to be safely carried onto the roof.

Principal features include:-

  • Greater site safety
  • Increased efficiency through easier movement of workforce.
  • Allows for multiple personnel use – overcoming timber ladder restrictions.
  • Slip-proof stair treads and landings – manufactured from strong expanded steel.
  • 700 mm wide stair tread.

Two options of Access Towers

Traditional Stair Towers

Stair Access Towers are used when the stair tower can be tied into the scaffold. The main complexity of Star Towers is the manner to which they are attached to the scaffold structure and PMC design every tower it installs and then design checks it against BS5975 Temporary Works.

Buttress Stair Towers

For some projects, the access tower cannot be tied into the scaffold and in this instance we would use a Buttress Access Tower. A Buttress Access Tower is free-standing and requires a greater degree of design and design check against BS5975 than a standard stair access tower.
