SUPPLY, FIT & TEST LIFTING BEAM
PRNS Building Services are well renowned for supplying and fitting lifting beams nationwide. This specialist service we provide the lift industry can vary from site to site, this could include using a crows nest scaffolding, protecting the active shaft, installation of padstones and fitting lift beams. Lifting beams can also be tested as part of this service.
We can supply and fit any steel beam across the UK. We have a distribution centre which we can store all beams ready to go on site.
Crows nest scaffolding
In some cases, to fit the beam, the site may need scaffolding such as a crows nest which we supplied at Maritime Museum, Liverpool. This made a safe working platform for our operatives to form the pockets for the beam to stay in place and when we are using the genie lifts within the shaft.
PROTECTING THE ACTIVE Lift SHAFT
We know the importance to protect an active lift shaft, this is why we use Visqueen to prevent any debris going into the active lift shaft. For this strict method and all projects we wear visible PPE to maintain a safe working environment.
PRNS Building Services have a wealth of experience in this sector. Since 2009, our teams have been professionally breaking out new pockets and installing/forming new concrete bases. Please see our case study examples:
