A transport platform is a hoist that can be adapted to carry passengers. They are designed to attach to scaffold and run on either single or twin mast sections, which are assembled on site. They are available in capacities of 300kg, 500kg and 2000kg. Simple to operate and easy to maintain, they are popular across the construction industry from roofing contractors to fit-out contractors. The smallest machine is able to accommodate a wheelbarrow to the larger machines, equivalent to a whole pack of plasterboard. The base and landing gates are interlocked for safe operation.
