Alimak/Peri scaffold hoist

Mastclimber and hoist group Alimak has teamed up with scaffold and formwork manufacturer Peri to develop the STS 300 rack and pinion scaffold component hoist.

Designed for use with the Peri Up system scaffold, the STS 300 features a single mast and a detachable 880mm by 1.23 metre platform with a 300kg capacity. It is able to lift all the various Peri Up components, including the large staircases, to lift heights of 12, 24, 36 or 48 metres, with a 2.2kW motor providing hoist speeds of 17 metres a minute. The platforms also feature four swivel casters for improved manoeuvrability on the ground, and can also be stacked for easier transportation and storage.

The company claims just two scaffolders - one at the bottom loading and unloading the boxes and another at the top installing the scaffold - are able to erect up to 300 square metres of scaffolding a day.

Alimak construction division vice president, said: “We are continuously focusing on adding customer value and are very pleased to be able to launch this new scaffolding product, which will not only improve productivity and efficiency for our customers, but also provide a safer, smoother and an overall better scaffolding working environment for scaffolders.”

Peri board member Thomas Imbacher, added: “We are very pleased to have this partnership with Alimak Group. The Alimak STS 300 will enable scaffolders to improve their entire logistic process, starting from the warehouse towards the jobsite and backwards. Due to the innovative approach, waiting times decrease and it is easy to assemble and dismantle scaffolding with a team of two scaffolders.”

The Alimak STS 300 will initially be available in Germany before gradually being rolled out to the rest of the world.
