Following recent high winds, our 24hr hire team were contacted by a new client who required the use of a 70m Truck Mounted Platform in London to perform emergency repairs to the high level brickwork on this office block staircase. With the risk of falling bricks a real threat to pedestrians below, it was vital repair works were completed without delay.

However, the job wasn’t quite that simple. The only place on site to locate the 70m Truck Mounted Platform was on the highway of a busy route in London. Our hire desk team immediately requested the assistance of our in-house Traffic Management division and within 30 minutes of receiving the enquiry both the Access Platform and required Traffic Management had been deployed from our London depot.

Our client was working at height within 90 minutes of the first call and the building was being made safe without further delay. To assist our client, Blade Access also supplied fixed lighting to our platform which was powered by the on-board silent hydraulic generator.

If you are seeking a safe and reliable access platform hire supplier then please do not hesitate to contact us. Our team is on hand and looking forward to working with you – 0845 1 900 800
