Access equipment for high rise building cladding inspectionSafe access to the outside of high rise buildings can be a challenge when constructing, retrofitting and maintaining tall blocks of flats and high rise apartments. For short duration work such as building cladding cleaning or maintenance a mobile access platform (MEWP) is a safe and efficient way to access high rise buildings.


Experts at high level access Elev8 Access Platforms have a fleet of MEWPs available for hire.  With a safe working height of up to 90 meters and a horizontal outreach of up to 38 meters our MEWPs can reach some of the tallest blocks of flats. Our hire fleet contains truck mounted access platforms and tracked access platforms which can travel over grass and set up on uneven ground. Tracked access platforms are ideal for safe access to the higher levels of buildings which face over gardens and grass.

Specialist Lifting Attachments Available For High-Rise Jobs

Here at Elev8 we have a fleet of specialised access platforms selected with both safety and reliability in mind. When purchasing MEWPs we think carefully about the job they will be used for.  We purchase specialist lifting attachments to ensure that the MEWP you hire is able safely lift people, equipment and maintenance to the workplace.


Our larger truck mounted MEWPs have lifting frames fitted onto the basket.  These frames are ideal for securely holding large building materials such as large panes of glass and sections of building cladding.  Building materials are safely secured in the frame outside the basket, separating them from the MEWP passengers.
