A simple-to-use device that allows workers to safely and effortlessly climb up, climb down, and work right from a steel column at the connection point. Column Climber is classified as both an access device and a personal ‘work platform’.
Workers can finally safely and comfortably work with two hands free, positioning themselves correctly to connect, bolt-up, weld, or inspect, while increasing productivity and lowering equipment costs.
It can be used as a platform to keep the working in place. It is said to be made of 514 steel and can support a 320 lbs user – although each foot frame is rated for up to 900 lbs.
The design is interesting as it allows the user to easily scale up and down a column and to stay in place at any given height.The Column Climber allows steel workers to work 5 times faster than with ladders, 3 times faster versus lifts, and perform welding 2 times faster.
