(All things scaffolding...)

I wanted to do something a little different this time.  Instead of showing tons of photos and detailing each project I thought I would let the video do the talking.

Superior Scaffold’s emergency services crew was called out to the Kennedy House Thursday night after a 25 foot long concrete wrapped beam fell to the ground from the 4th floor parking garage. Superior had a crew on the scene that morning and transformed the sidewalk…

Thank goodness there were no injuries.  The beam was decorative and not supportive.  You can see were it came lose from the facade of the building four stories up.

On first inspection, it looks like one of the connectors might have rusted.  City crews can now get safely up to the side of the building.  They will be using a high reach to thoroughly inspect the area and then make determinations from there.

It only took one phone call to Tony Pini and several hours later Superior had a plan in place, equipment loaded up and crews ready to roll.

Superior Scaffold doesn’t just install the safest, best looking canopies (overhead protection) in the city we also customize them to our customer’s needs.  We can match the color and content of your brand to maximize exposure for your company.

Case in point is the aluminum canopy we installed at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, one of Philadelphia’s premiere hotels located at 10 Avenue Of The Arts, Philadelphia, PA 19102.

The Ritz’s elegant brand needed to be conveyed all through their facade inspection and renovation process. (that can take up to two years).  Who wants an eyesore in front of their business for that amount of time?

over head protection, canopy, sidewalk shed, superior scaffold, scaffolding, rental, rent, rents, 215 743-2200

That’s why Superior Scaffold works with their clients to create the most aesthetically pleasing product on the market.  The first step on this job was to create an stylish aluminum canopy that would be tall enough to allow guests very few obstructions.  Our brushed aluminum scaffolding was just the ticket.

The Ritz-Carlton also wanted their luxurious blue conveyed on the outside of the scaffold as well.  We custom painted the panels to match their logo – giving this sidewalk shed an almost regal feel.

And the final touch was the special color debris netting we added to finish this functional masterpiece.

Other challenges included the special beam sizes needed to span the load over the train station exit at one end of the canopy.

This facade work was completed and the Ritz-Carlton is looking fabulous – another satisfied client.

I wish that every job could be as expansive as Independence Hall, or Amtrak 30th St. Station or Citizens Bank Park / Philly Stadium but the reality is that a lot of the work we get is trying to come up with scaffolding solutions in very tight spaces. Our guys are some of the best at designing scaffold that will get crews access to just about any working space.

The mechanical room at the Bryn Mawr hospital is a perfect example. There was virtually no room in there to get the scaffolding in – let alone set it up.  Crews needed to get on top of this maze of equipment to install pipe for new HVAC and to run two new electrical lines above that massive green tank.  But how could they get “up air” safely to do it?

Superior scaffold devised a plan to navigate the spider web of equipment and get crews above it all where they could work safely and comfortably (check out the photos).

Superior used a combination of system scaffold, diagonals, decking, handrail and various other gear to create a safe working platform. In one picture you can even see that we had to cantilever one leg around the green monster to carry the decking above, very innovative solution in a tight space.

The job was a smashing success.  Crews got their work done safely and efficiently and the hospital was thrilled.

Shoring Rental Division – Superior Scaffold

And for our final rental division – Shoring.

In simple terms, shoring is the act of propping up with shores.  Shoring is a general term used in construction to describe the process of supporting a structure in order to prevent collapse so that construction can proceed.

Superior Scaffold has been providing general contractors and construction companies with innovative shoring solutions for more than 50 years.

Now, a little more clarificaton – from the SSFI (Scaffolding, Shoring, Forming Institute) Shoring is not scaffolding and scaffolding is not shoring.  The difference is in the use.

shoring, scaffold, scaffolding, rent, rents, rental, pa, nj, de, md, ny, philly, philadelphia, superior, 215 743-2200
Norristown Parking Garage

The American National Standards Institute describes scaffolding as “a temporary elevated or suspended work unit and its supporting structure used for supporting worker(s) or materials, or both,” while the same agency describes shoring as “ The vertical supporting members in a formwork system.”

Although scaffolding is not shoring and shoring is not scaffolding, remember that each system requires proper fall protection, access, and strength.  If layout work or load calculations are required, Superior has an in-house engineering staff available for customer support.

The concrete beams were deteriorating and needed repair.  Superior Scaffold was called in to shore up 5 floors of the garage so crews could remove and replace the bad sections of concrete.  We shored up the supporting joists with our 2′ X 5′ Hi Load shoring frames so crews could work on the main cement beams.

In the previous post we talked about our Suspended Scaffold Rental Division – and today we are going to look at our Mast Climber Rental Division – which is also a part of our Powered Access Division (along with Suspended Scaffolds).

Mast climbing work platforms (MCWP) or Mast Climbers are particularly useful when access to a long span is needed so workers can quickly and easily move across the entire width of the wall or surface, at varying heights.

superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding, rent, rents, access, masonry, gc, pa, philly, philadelphia, NY, NJ, DE, MD, mast climber
Marquis de Lafayette, Cape May, NJ

These powered access platforms are popular with masonry contractors because they provide a safe, affordable, efficient access solution.  Superior Scaffold rents mast climbers that come in single, double or custom configurations depending upon the length and shape of the work platform needed.

By using different size platform decks you can erect a mast climbing work platform to fit the lengths of just about any facade being accessed.

superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding, rent, rents, access, masonry, gc, pa, philly, philadelphia, NY, NJ, DE, MD
Virtua Hospital, Voorhees, NJ

When to use Mast Climbers:

  • When working from the ground up is preferable
  • Supports from 2,000-8,000 pounds (from 2 to 8 times the capacity of a suspended scaffold)
  • Wheelable base unit allows for easy maneuvering and set up

Superior scaffold, (215) 743-2200, scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, suspended, PA, Philadelphia, philly, phila, rent, ladders, building materials, equipment rental, de, nj, md, nyc

Some places to use mast climbers:  Medical center, school, hospital, factory, silo, church, prison, residential project, casino, warehouse, super market and more.

Some uses for Mast Climbers:

  • Inspection
  • Window replacement
  • Bricklaying
  • Construction
  • Maintenance
  • Renovation
  • Painting
  • Glazing
  • Cleaning
  • Concrete repair
  • Cladding
  • Restoration
  • Curtain Walling

Superior Scaffold Suspended / Swing Rental Division

In the last post we talked about our Scaffold Rental Division – but today we are going to look at our Suspended Scaffold or swing department – which is a part of our Powered Access Division.

Suspended scaffolds or swing stages are often used to provide access and working platforms in the construction, alteration, inspection, repair, refurbishment and maintenance of high-rise buildings, industrial plants, bridges and other large structures.

scaffold rental, scaffolding rental, swings, suspended scaffold, PA, DE, NJ, MD,

Suspended scaffold is ideal for projects where traditional scaffolding is not practical or cost effective.  We carry the Altrex Modular Suspended Platform System that is super flexible and allows for access to the building at many locations simultaneously, allowing work to be done faster and more efficiently.

Scaffold Rental, Scaffolding Rental. Sales, Service, PA, Philly, Philadelphia, New Jersey, DE, NYC

Suspended scaffolds  (swing staging, suspended platforms) are great for working safely at heights.

Typical applications for our suspended scaffolds are:

  • Inspection
  • Construction
  • Maintenance
  • Renovation
  • Painting
  • Cleaning
  • Concrete repair
  • Cladding

suspended, superior scaffold, scaffold rental, scaffolding, rent, rents, access, masonry, gc, pa, philly, philadelphia, NY, NJ, DE, MD (215) 743-2200

Altrex offers solutions for various complex access situations.  With the wide variety of components for the Modular Suspended Platform System many custom-made configurations can be built.   (see above)  The experienced Altrex user can design a platform for safe access to even the most complex contours of any structure and height.  For example maintenance platforms for football stadiums, oil-tankers and silo’s.  (see our blog on adapting to a building’s shape)

Scaffold rental, Scaffolding Rental, Swing, Suspended, PA, Philly, Philadelphia, NJ, New Jersey, DE, NYC

Benefits:

There are a multitude of accessories, such as corner and angle sections, double decker & double width kits that can be used to find a solution for almost any access situation.

Flexibility – The user can build any configuration necessary to fit the structure precisely and allow close access to the working surface.

Compact Transportation and Storage – The modular construction saves space and makes transportation easy.  A complete 40 foot swing stage fits in the back of a small truck!

Light Weight – High capacity – The smart design of the Altrex system results in high load capacities despite its light weight.

Fast Assembly and Disassembly – The complete Altrex platform can be disassembled quickly and without special tools.

Meets or Exceeds the most stringent Safety Standards.

I wanted to follow up on a post we did last month about the ramp we built for Toyota at the Philly Auto Show.  I didn’t have the photos at the time but now I do and boy are you in luck!   These picks are after the skeleton was erected and just as the dirt was bing poured.

It’s not everyday that you get to see the behind the scenes workings of an auto show, especially one where they constructed a ramp and obstacle course to test their vehicles.

The previous blog can be seen here (on how the ramp was constructed)

Let me show you a few pics of what the ramp looked like going up and then I’ll show you the finished product and how it was used.

This is what the space looked like when we were erecting the ramp.

Here you can really see what went into constructing a ramp strong enough to hold dirt, cars, and passengers.

Crews feverishly moving dirt up and onto the ramp itself.

And the moment of truth!  The first test car to go up and over the ramp.  Success!!!

Even though the show was in Philly – Toyota thought it might be more realistic to  have a sign that said welcome to Vermont?  Where’s the love?

This is the Vermont snow that was placed on the side of the ramp and all around the obstacle course.

These are some of the test vehicles that Toyota brought out to take customers out and around the course.

This shows you where the course flows once you come down the other side of the ramp.  There is a very large photo of a snowy environmnent and a cross country skier coming right at you – I guess somewhere in Vermont?

Every obstacle course needs a water hazard complete with rocks, sand and mud!

Superior Scaffold was proud to work with Toyota on this ramp for their course.  It weathered 3 days of constant abuse without a scratch.  There was much more to the actual course but I just wanted to give viewers an update to the ramp we constructed.  It’s fun to see just how the finished product looks and functions sometime.
